We are witnessing that man is increasingly disturbing and endangering the environment. The main reason for this is money.
Money has become everything to man. Is money more important than nature, clean air, forests, rivers, lakes and the sea? Quo vadis, homine? How to protect ourselves and the nature around us? How to save ourselves from diseases and pandemics? How to return to our mother - the blue planet - the Earth? The only planet that gave us all life conditions: natural beauty, food, water, air.
