On the "Virtual Run" : Will We Listen?

It has been a worrisome few weeks around the World as we contend with the challenges in Ukraine and see what is at hand in Syria.    This is as the IPCC (UN Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change) issued its' latest report.    Although I almost fell out of my chair in laughter at the notion that we as humans have become the "new polar bear", it is not far from reality becuase the continued changes in our climate is absolutely scary.    Iran has just reported that 57 Dams have only 40% water capacity which may result in the Capital, Tehran, being faced with Water Rationing.

I could not help but wonder whether we would ever listen to this admonition:

 Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
