I remember when I said to my husband about a week ago that f*cking coronavirus looks like Mother Nature revenge. Now I’m pretty sure I wasn’t far away from the truth. We do not care enough for our planet. We do so many stupid and unnecessary things.
I remember how we all were crying because of the Amazon rainforest fire ‘Lungs of the world’ and Australian Fire. We donated money, shared all those sad pictures, so many celebrities were concerned. And ironically some of them do not have a problem with killing animals for stupid fashionable bags and furs etc.
I’m not saying I’m perfect but there are so many things we can do to reduce all that crap which we serving to our planet every day. You will not lose your crown if you will start using reusable bags for veggies and fruits. Nothing bad will happened to you if you will start using reusable bottles with filters. Volunteer for cleanups in your community and use a long-lasting light bulb. If you like a sport you can use a bike instead of driving a car too often.
Now you will ask what coronavirus has common with all of it. I don’t know but it started in China the most polluted country in the world. And virus pandemic leads to a huge drop in air pollution in the whole country.
I remember when I was in Venice in Italy a few years ago. Magical experience but I was aware of rats that were close to canals and the water there was so dirty you couldn’t see any fish. Now during a pandemic, even dolphins came back to Venice waters. And it looks stunning.
And what about this year during the winter. Were you actually able to feel that was a winter? I thought we had longer autumn and that’s it. It will be a big drama during the summer. I believe it can be the hottest and dry summer ever. What does it mean? More fires, agriculture can collapse and we worked for that global warming very hard.
We are killing animals for stupid furs or expensive bags. We are testing cosmetics on animals and treat them in a non-humanitarian way only because we want to eat meat. We use too much plastic and most of that crap is on our oceans, seas. We don’t care about forests. We do not have a problem cutting them out for new buildings like supermarkets, shopping centers.
I can see a pattern in it. I can see that our Mother Nature is fucking pissed off. And she didn’t say a final word.
Maybe for now she just wants to warn us. Teach us to slow down. Maybe she wants to show us that we are not so invincible. It’s a good time to consider our lifestyles. To stop and think about what is really important.
Let us know if you have similar feelings! And how you try to stay safe during coronavirus outbreak.
