Jane's Statement on Steve Cutts's Animated Video "Man"
See how we have harmed the planet in what Dr. Goodall calls, “a clever cartoon that provides a chilling commentary of our selfish behavior.” Read more of Jane’s thoughts and watch this animated video created by Steve Cutts.
“I travel around the world 300 days a year, doing my best to make more people realize the harm we humans are doing to our planet. How is it possible that the most intellectual species that has ever existed is destroying its only home? I think one of the main reasons is selfishness and short-term thinking. By thinking only of the next quarter’s profit or our immediate wants, we are ignoring the impact of the choices we make today on generations to come. We are using up the resources of the planet as though they are inexhaustible – which is not true. This clever cartoon provides a chilling commentary of our selfish behavior.”
