Nature, Beauty, Gratitude. by Louie Schwartzberg

From TED: a talk by Louie Schwartzberg, an award-winning cinematographer, director and producer who captures breathtaking images that celebrate life. I just had to share it!

Quote from Louie Schwartzberg: “Beauty and seduction, I believe, is nature’s tool for survival, because we will protect what we fall in love with.” 

It is a real shame that we as humans have made it necessary to protect what we have left of nature, and that it is us protecting what has existed for millennia, while the existence of our species constitutes a whisker of a fraction of the history of the earth. 

What we need to do next is to accept and embrace the responsibility of protecting our Earth, to take it upon our shoulders like the grown-up child who is now capable and strong starts to care for their parents, and the realisation of seriousness dawns on them. Then we can hope to have a chance of tackling the enormity of the task before us.
