Clearly we have reached the absurd point where a literal handful has more power than most countries - the result? The "shit-covered tails will wag" the World !

Milton's titi monkeys in the Amazon forest in Brazil. The Brazilian Government is "feeling the heat" of World opinion & rightly so! They, like most politicians,have failed to see the real worth & natural treasure under their custody.

Being unique assures a highly prized drawcard & future. VALUE IT !

Tree trunks stand in the critically low Theewaterskloof Dam in Villiersdorp, South Africa, Jan. 23, 2018. As our natural World sends a clear message we are heading for disaster we MUST look to change our exploitative ways.

On a finite globe there is NO PLACE TO HIDE FROM REALITY!
