Since the day we were born, Mother Earth has been providing us with shelter and food for our survival. She never once complaint, nor she ever stopped giving. But like a beautiful rose in a pot, if not being nurtured and taken care of everyday, it will soon lose its beauty, and lay withered in the pot.
The same goes to Earth. Although strong and sturdy on the outside, she is also very fragile on the inside. Constant exploitation will cause significant changes in the Earth’s ecosystems which in the end, result to the extinction of the livings in this world. Over the years, many mammals, birds, reptiles, fishes, insects and plants have become extinct. Quite a few are on the endangered list now. Could there ever come a time when Earth becomes extinct?
