humans: nature's cancer


Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, 
so that he can add to what he's been given. 
 But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. 
Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct,
 the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day. 
 ~Anton Chekhov, Uncle Vanya, 1897
