In human history, whatever untoward happened as result of human activity, happened due to their lack of wisdom. Humans tore Earth’s guts apart, caused global warming, and constructed so much ugliness on Earth’s surface. All these acts resulted in destruction of all rivers and streams, environmental pollution, and caused huge human suffering. If Earth is in distress it is natural that all flora, fauna and human beings on it have to be in distress. What kind of people must have been who envisaged human health and happiness on a wounded planet? If humans stop disturbing Earth’s natural balance, Earth’s surface alone has abundant treasure for all human beings to live happily. It is out of ignorance that humans made these mistakes and committed these crimes. These mistakes and crimes, result of which is imbalance everywhere, are not outcome of their wisdom. All these imbalance causing acts were carried out by humans in the Science age, yet we haven’t stopped boasting of Science and think that we will find some solution from Science itself, even when humankind has reached the brink of its own annihilation from Earth. We need to pay attention to this. Wisdom is the only way if human race wants to save itself from this fate.
