Earth is a biosphere with finite resources. What you do today matters.
I wrote this statement as a kind of first principle in the optimistic hope that the silent majority would accept that it transcends all political, economic, religious or ideological dogmas. And that the wider adoption of #biosphere in tweets that challenge public statements, policies or even journalism that ignores this first principle might gather support for common sense in much the same way that social media has rallied support around other ideas in recent months.
Could #biosphere trend? And could it make a difference? It would be nice to think so.
Thank you for your time.
