What was once a humorous bumper sticker on granddad's RV, has now become a frightening reality -- we're spending our children's inheritance. Driven by our desires for wealth, security, and comfort we are carelessly consuming or polluting the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the earth on which we live. Like a runaway train headed for certain disaster, we're accelerating at break-neck speed toward the end of this world, as we know it. We're barraged by reports of global warming, genetic engineering, polluted oceans, peak oil, mass extinction of animal species, depleted soils, population overshoot, HIV/AIDS epidemic, and on and on. And what is even more shocking is what is happening in the soul of mankind as we become more and more alienated and independent from one another.
