Politicians are not concerned about the survival of our planet. The future of our grandchildren is in the hands of greedy politicians & cold hearted industry.
We must not allow these false values to rule our lives, our planet, or our grandchildren’s future.
“There is a delight in the hardy life of the open. There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm. The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased and not impaired in value. Conservation means development as much as it does protection.”
– Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States
