In defense of natural resources

If trees were capitalists they would have to mine from under their own feet the minerals and resources they need for life.

If trees were capitalists they would have to mine from under their own feet the minerals and resources they need for life and ship them away.

If trees were capitalists they would have to sell the water they capture from snow and rain and suffer poverty of water in drought years.

If trees were capitalists they would charge us for capturing carbon and then sell us the oxygen they make and we need.

Luckily trees build sustainable communities we call forests.

Their communities support all animals, not just capitalists.

Old growth forests are ancient for a reason.
