Only When…

You may be familiar with this: “Only when the last tree has died, and the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, will you realize that you cannot eat money.” – American Indian proverb

We recast it thus:
Only when the last tree has been felled and the last crumb of soil has been paved over will we realise that we need local food and wildlife habitat more than commuter bus routes”  Rising up proverb
