Soul/self Care—Planetary Emergency

Last Friday I recommended viewing Michael Moore’s new film “Planet of the Humans”  A number of readers have shared good comments on this email list.  Today I add two further sources on this subject of our ecological/earth care crisis.

First, the following April 28 Common Dreams article by Cynthia Kauffman, critical of the film.

And second, a column by Michael Moore, saying we are in a planetary emergency with multiple causes, but “Mostly humans, and our various nonsensical greed-induced behaviors and systems.

All of this is a call for more radical changes in consumption and “way of life” expectations than most of us want to consider, I fear.  Yet, we may respond with positive action and caring.
