We Earthmen have destroyed environment to such an extent that now we are on the edge of a precipice. On the one hand, we are shouting out instructions concerning conservation. But on the other, we still excessively exploit resources of the Earth.
Anton Chekhov is turning in his grave.
In years 1889-1890 he wrote the play “The Wood Demon”. Khrushchev, the character of the play says: “Man is endowed with reason and the power to create, so that he may increase that which has been given him, but until now he has not created, but demolished. The forests are disappearing, the rivers are running dry, the game is exterminated, the climate is spoiled, and the earth becomes poorer and uglier every day.”
It is still winter in my region.
