Economics (Draw a Bird Day)

Biodiversity is unprofitable. Industry is profitable.

Old growth forests are unprofitable. Deforestation is profitable.  Prairies are unprofitable.  Pipelines are profitable.  Clean water and air are unprofitable.  Manufacturing, drilling, and mining are profitable.  Public lands are unprofitable.  Private property is profitable.

Healthcare is unprofitable. Illness is profitable. Truth is unprofitable. Lies are profitable.

Extinction is profitable.

dark understories,
multilayered, listening–
a silent swift swoop

The spotted owl is one of the species that will likely lose habitat if the Endangered Species Act is gutted, as those pushing development over preservation, supported by many members of Congress, and the President and his cabinet members, wish to do.  We have to find a way to live that doesn’t have greed and profit as its prime motives.  We are not just destroying the individual ecosystems that are homes for endangered species; we are killing the delicate balance that keeps everything on Earth alive.

Celebrate Draw-A-Bird Day by asking your leaders to do something to save our planet, so we can have more birds, not less, and a better and richer life for all.

    I love how your owl appears after a few seconds of viewing your art…like your perfect words to describe this owl “silent swift swoop”. As always thank you for your message of the care for our planet.

    “…dark undertones / multilayered…”
    I agree.
    Not one of these misdeeds stands alone. Compiled and compounded, they point to our destruction.

    Would you mind if I used your owl to illustrate a post? I found it in my gallery and I thought it was yours. It has your hallmark on it.
