this is not a biblical reference ..
although the catastrophic weather and earthquakes are reminiscent of Revelation ...
in the '90s ... one of the books I read had a rather disturbing storyline
the Earth was alive ..
and after centuries of abuse by humans
it was systemically wiping us out ...
ever increasing temperatures
the trees strangled us
the ground opened up and swallowed us
all because we are dreadful custodians ...
not only of this lovely planet but the animals
damaging the earth and air
eliminating 1000's of species of animals ( including plant life and insects )
and endangering countless more
watching the news and seeing so many island countries being obliterated ..
makes one wonder
