I’m not going to pontificate on what we all need to do to preserve our Earth. Others can do that far more intelligently. I’ll just offer one very personal reason why we can’t continue to wreck it. Today’s guest artist, the Tiger, requires a habitat. So does his brother, the Bear. So do all the small people in their generation.
Here’s the artist’s rendering of our planet, Erf. (Yes, that’s how it’s pronounced, too.)
If we can’t live here anymore, here’s a getaway rocket …
… which will take us to Mars. I’m not sure sure it’s habitable, either, despite Dick Cheney’s fascination with it. I have to wonder how a planet sporting eyes, ears, and chicken feet can support human life.
If Mars (aka Mrs) is capable of sustaining life after all, it might look a little like these aliens (aka alens):
Myself? Looking at those aliens, I’m really hoping we can stay right here on Erf.
