"Only when the last tree is cut,
the last river poisoned and the last fish caught,
we will realise we cannot eat money"

Cree Prophecy


Nearly seven billion people populate the earth today, humankind is growing every day.
Facing this huge amount of inhabitants we often seem to forget that our existence is only possible because of the resources our planet provides to us.
As it’s said in the movie “Earthlings” (which will be a part of this special feature later on) we are obviously biting the hand that feeds us, we don’t show any respect to our host. As a matter of fact we’re exploiting our planet by every day, knowing, but constantly ignoring the consequences our lifestyle will have one day, not thinking about the world we leave to our children. The "EARTH" special feature should give the reader an idea of humankind’s self destructive behavior on the one hand and show nature itself in its greatest majesty on the other hand.
