Earth ‘crying out’


Share post:

Humans have not got their stewardship of the Earth right.
In fact, Dean Dr Frank Marshall has likened Earth’s treatment to it having been raped and left to bleed.
Marshall was delivering the sermon at yesterday’s service, at St Michael’s Cathedral, to mark this year’s World Environment Day and to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the island’s hosting of the first conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
Speaking to a small congregation that included Governor-General Sir Elliott Belgrave, Minister of the Environment Dr Denis Lowe, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) officials, local ministry officials and some school children, the Dean of the Cathedral said humans were “not without some blame” for “some of the fallout, disorder and chaos that occurs from time to time”.
“There are actions and behaviours which easily contribute to the disequilibrium [of the Earth],” he said. (HLE)
