“Mother Earth is commended for communicating with us, but if you were to say that God is communicating those same things, all he would get is fist-shaking and blame.” Fine for Mother Earth to have a voice, but not so much for the Father of Creation. And he does speak in this way. In all this, I find something strangely reminiscent of the exile. “He carried into exile to Babylon the remnant… The land enjoyed its sabbath rests; all the time of its desolation it rested…” 2 Chronicles 36:20,21.
Apparently, the city of Venice is enjoying crystal clear waters in its world-famous canals due to a lack of debris from tourists and near-zero boat traffic under Italy’s ongoing coronavirus lockdown.
Pollution monitoring satellites from over Wuhan show the air clear—the mist of dust and pollution dissipated. Satellite imagery also shows a significant reduction in Nitrogen Dioxide levels over the city, a drop estimated near 30 percent.
I have seen a number of memes advocating that this is Mother Earth’s way of healing herself. She is taking matters into her own hands and clearing the oceans, stopping us flying, cutting down the air pollution etc. This draws no pushback on Facebook posts that I have seen.
Apparently she is telling us not just to take care of the planet, but to slow down, and spend time with the people we love, to get out and enjoy nature, that life isn’t all just about work etc, etc.
