Erprobt und für gut befunden

We have, I believe, passed the point of no return on environmental destruction. Nothing we do now can slow climate change for example. Species extinction is happening at a breakneck pace. The loss of pollinators, desertification, loss of topsoil, the difficulty of growing food in times of extreme storms, and the constant destruction of communities, homes, ecosystems whether it be from wildfires, tornados, hurricanes, or deluges - each of these spilling toxins into the water, soil, air as buried and otherwise stored wastes are released into the environment - combined with all the industrial disasters, have sealed our fate.
