The world’s economy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the environment.
Which is something that the majority of the world's economists, bankers and financiers somehow manage to overlook.
I was reading The Book of Revelation recently when I read with new eyes part of 11:15-19 where judgement is the subject.
"The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding your servants the prophets and those that reverence your name, both great and small and for destroying those who destroy the earth".
To use creation for selfish greed, desecrating the earth and so reducing its bio-diversity is not simply a crime against humanity it is blastpheny. It wrecks God's work of creation and blights not only those affected by Climate Change today, the poor and the vulnerable, it also blights the future of our children, grandchildren and those as yet unborn, and they are the ones that the present has actually been borrowed from.
