The RENA is leaking oil onto a beach only half an hours drive from here, and for most NZers its a bit of a shock to have such an environmental disaster here in our waters, so close to home.
It is times like this that you think about the world that we have bought our kids into. Is the world for our precious babies going to be clean, full of resources and opportunity? Or are we going to destroy it so that it is full of pollution, raped of water, greenery, fresh air?
What are we giving to our children and grandchildren?
What kind of world are we raising our children in?
Do you ever wonder about this?
