“Order! Order! You may start!” says the judge kindly to the lawyer who represents the children of the world and the lawyer says, “Your honor, these men and women in the dock are murderers and killers!” “They are your parents, uncles and aunts,” says the judge. “Butchers!” shout the children some of whom are crying. “What charges have you against the accused?” asks the judge. “That they have knowingly misused the earth they were given to use for a limited period and have through pollution and waste, emissions and environmental mishandling, made it a place unfit for us children to live in.” “What evidence do you have?” asked the judge. “Floods! Unseasonal rains! Epidemics!”
“Tsunamis!” shouts a child from Asia. “Heat waves!” “Global warming!” “Dried rivers!” “Shrinking oceans!” “Okay!” shouts the judge finally, “You say that all this has been caused because these adults never took care of our planet during their lifetime?” “Yes your honour!” “What do you plead?” asks the judge looking at the accused, adults all of them in the age group of fifty and above.
“We plead guilty your honour!” “Guilty of destroying planet earth leased to you for your lifetimes?” “Yes your honour!” The judge turns to the lawyer, “And what punishment do you ask?” “Death!” shout all the children, “Death..!” And that should be the sentence for all of us who are hell bent on destroying our earth..!
