I posted my comments on this a few months back. This cartoon from the newspapers last week captures it well :
Land-filling 450 acres of ocean will sink Sri Lanka in more ways than one. Fiscal … there is a chance of recovery – generations for the next few centuries can pay the debt.
Destruction of the environment – IRREVERSIBLE.
Google mail icons today are colorful vibrant doodles to remind us that it is Earth Day – April 22nd. Perhaps Google should also stamp Earth day across these beautiful doodles so that the millions who see them will be reminded that it is Earth Day.
.The Earth day logo which I have selected from the many non ‘Google’ images available reminds us that all life and activities need to be in harmony and balanced with each other for continued sustainability and JOY.
Happy Earth Day everyone … 🙂
Please do a little something today for Mother Earth to minimise your footprint.

“Ok .. no protests from me. You really are a beautiful specimen. And the heat is almost unbearable so you stay … I’ll just park next door 🙂 Let me first get a picture of you though for the Mundane Monday community. Done. Now I’ll just wait here till you are ready to move .”
Colombo has been experiencing a heat wave. The animals are the hardest hit … as are those in drought stricken lands of Asia where humans too are succumbing to the heat.
One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing – Jeff Goodell
Grumbling at the heat … but doing nothing to minimise our carbon footprint? Guilty as charged.
Photrablogger’s challenge really has me trying to find beauty in the most mundane – like this jar of plastic lids on my sister’s kitchen sink. She separates the HDPE covers from PET bottles and milk cartons that are to be recycled as part of her efforts to minimise her footprint.
For love of Mother Earth
Apart from the eye catching colours, I think the jar is beautiful because it helps in some small way to prevent this.
