Earth given human rights?
Should Mother Earth be given human rights? Earth is a living, breathing, life-giving orifice floating in the solar system. Throughout geologic time Earth has evolved and changed its face many times. But are humans causing too much damage in too little time? It took tens of thousands of years for Earth to naturally revive itself from its “snowball” periods; however, we are accelerating CO2 levels at astonishingly quick rates compared to geologic time. We are destroying her forests, oceans, and sky. Is this idea more ridiculous than animal rights? I mean, Earth gives life to everything, and since we provide rights for the seeds why not give it to the tree?
