Cree Prophecy, and the Web of our Life

Cree Prophecy:
"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"
Fracking, mining the tar sands, hunting 400kg blue fin tunas, growing monocultures (coffee, corn, eucalyptus, pines, cocoa, pineapple) and reducing biodiversity, building pipelines through delicate ecosystems, consuming lifestyle junk, idling your car, using one's car instead of public transit, letting the water run while shaving (or while soaping up), "celebrating" Christmas.... all these and more take away the filaments of the web that is our existence.
