“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.” ― Lao Tzu
Fortunately for mankind; what can and what cannot be done is a matter of opinion. When bound by the constraints of human time it is difficult to imagine the impact we can have on our planet. We could live on the moon, but why would we want to. Survival and living are two very different things and recognizing the resilience of humanity is quite easy when you see the what peoples around the world endure on a daily basis.
What’s important to you? Best guess says the Earth has been here for about 67 million human lifetimes. In that blink of our existence, what difference can we make? Save the planet? I’m pretty sure she can take care of herself, but the next 1 or 2 lifetimes we impact will determine our legacy for the quality of life of all people. The road is long, but time is short. Make a difference with whatever part of your 67.2 years you have left.
