Not quite sure just what you mean but the environment sure is/was beautiful. I wrote ‘was’ because chainsaws have ruined too much of what was once so beautiful. Having no chainsaws would have left a lot of trees standing and slowed down the felling of a lot beautiful trees, because an axe is just very hard work. The environment sure is dangerous. AND, going to the top of Mount Everest has a 25% death rate. Yes! Quite a few die coming down, and the living ones cannot possibly help in any way to bring the body down. Phew! Awful decision!
Humans love to see new wonders and beautiful unspoilt places and things but the natives there know all the dangers that lurk there, and they respect those dangers. White folk often do not see dangers and can suffer the consequences. The USA President, Barak Obama was recently in Darwin, a town in the north of Australia. The ‘Aussies’ there (they love to laugh) gave him a very special personal insurance policy – just in case he was attacked/bitten by one of the local crocodiles. The President thought it a was great gift and good joke.
Now and then, mostly young crocodiles, are found roaming the suburbs or even in home swimming pools in Darwin. Crocodiles lived there before humans – we came into their territory – so we must learn to be careful of them at all times.
Antarctica: It’s very, very cold down there but people want to go and explore it all, and find, and get to the South Pole. Quite a few have died but many love the place where a little mistake or a minor accident can quickly kill you, or freeze you to death.
There are snakes, spiders, ants, scorpions, and bugs of all sorts live in our environment and they have their part to play in the environment (snakes and owls love to eat rats and mice). We oh-so–smart-humans really only know a little about them. A butcher told me that flies play an important role in cleaning up the environment. What?! Yes they do. After the lions, wild dogs, vultures, crows and ants have had their share of a dead animal, flies clean up the bones and no disease can develop. Cool eh? Earthworms and bugs by the million – seen and unseen, turn dead leaves and other organic ‘stuff’ on the ground into humus – that’s plant food –and when they get driven out, or die because of our mucking around with the soil, the soil is never as good as it was before. All the chemical fertilizers cannot do the same job in growing yummy tasting peaches, apricots, bananas, and mangoes, etc.
