I’ve always looked at the Earth as being another extension of Nature. As an extension of Nature, it can most certainly react to our actions in its own way.
And when Man in his arrogance starts his hyper-development, has utter disregard for the environment and forgoes his responsibility to Mother Earth; it’s only a matter of time before Nature thrashes Man back to his place and shuts him up.
Nature doesn’t have favourites. Nature doesn’t share our bigotry. Nature doesn’t care whether you’re rich or poor, with or without a Dato’ title, Bumiputera or not. In fact it is sufficient to say:
Nature Knows Best!
