I made a comment to someone today that I didn’t think was a big deal, but they said it really hit home with them. It was this; the Earth is a closed loop system and nothing leaves the loop. It’s always how I’ve thought about it, but I guess not everyone has looked at it like that. Viewing the Earth as a closed system is the reason I do what I do. Nothing ever goes away, it just gets spread into the system and eventually works its way back to us. Keep in mind this is the same water that’s been here for aeons, it’s just been cycled through the system countless times. When you look at the Earth and it’s systems that way it’s easy to see why taking care of the planet is our only option. We really only have this one planet and we are desperately dependent on it functioning properly to keep us alive.
