Mother Earth hates us.
I think She liked the dinosaurs better than us little monkeys; she kept the climate stable for those big, dumb turkeys for millions of years. She nurtured them and protected them until a meteor smashed into Her and ruined Her favorite lifeform. Think about it: at every turn Gaia has tried to destroy us. Floods, earthquakes, landslides, tornadoes, sandstorms....you name it, and humans have died from it. We settle a nice bit of area and She turns it into a desert. We build a nice warm house on a hill and She sends torrential rain to send that house down into the valley. Is this the behaviour of a loving Mother? I think not.
She hates trees too.
It's probably because trees really like us. They take in our poisons and give us clean air to breathe. They drop tasty fruit for us to eat and sacrifice themselves for our houses, pencils and nickels. Lets face it, trees are our greatest ally. Now Gaia knows this and sends lightning down to destroy the trees. Clever trees, however, just turn their own ashes into fertile ground to grow more trees. This, I think, really p!sses Mother Earth off. Her own skin used against her will.
So stop all your concerns for saving the planet. Quit debating the whole thing and go change your car's oil. That oil is made from Gaia's beloved dinosaurs and I say take that used oil and go dump it somewhere. Let it soak into the soil and give Gaia Dearest the middle finger and shout 'THAT'S FOR THE ICE AGE, B!TCH!".
