It was too telling that your article, "Living beyond our environmental
means" (March 30) shared a page with a car advertisement whose message read: "It knows your voice. It can sense some aggression." The ad later states: "The harder
you drive, the harder it performs".

 

The same can be said of planet Earth as we consume its resources. However, given that the ability of the Earth to "perform" for us is finite, it is crucial that we come to know the voice of our stoically suffering planet right away, and drive much less aggressively.
