Default Cree Indian Warning on Loss of Biodiversity

"There is a well-known Cree Indian Prophecy that says: "Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."

"I would not like to belong to the generation that proves the wisdom of the Cree Indians."

Better to belong to the generation that begins to take it seriously.
