Environment: The Other Side of Midnight.

 The human species faces extinction through autotoxicity, from poisons we are creating and steadily accumulating to the point of irreversibility. 
 Dr Abe V Rotor


Only human thinks of himself god,
mingling with the gods of Mt Olympus,
naming himself saint or demigod,
judging himself no other than himself; 
beauty he builds and later destroys, 
ugliness neither can he define nor compare;
for who would dare tell he is wrong, 
when he thinks creation is under his feet,
self-proclaimed and all knowing
save humility and lessons of history, 
his impending and final defeat.
