… Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
The Lorax was my first introduction to environmentalism. On the 43rd year of Earth Day, I thought it would be fun to post the original Lorax as reminder of the wise words of Dr. Seuss. (because although it was just a children’s book, Dr. Seuss made some incredibly good points that should not be forgotten.)
It is tremendously overwhelming to think of the work that needs to be done, but in the words of Paul Hawken,“If you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse.”
