"The photos that you see describe the impact in and around Cross Lake, Manitoba,and surrounding, Sipiwsek Lake is near 
      our community and holds a great deal of history,artifacts from the
        area go back thousands of years but now in danger of further damage
        due to flooding caused by construction of dams without consultation. "

Cevre ve Biz Uzerine Bir Kac Soz 
 

Yukarda gordugunuz fotograflar Amerika Birlesik Devletleri'nde yasayan bir arkadasim tarafindan gonderildi.
 
Erozyonun ve doga kirliliginin dunyanin hemen her ulkesinde inanilmaz boyutlara geldiginin tipik goruntuleri bu fotograflar. 
 
Icinde yasadigimiz dunya gercekten de artik bir gun yasayamayacagimiz hale gelmek uzere ve biz insanlar bunun icin hala hic bir sey yapmiyoruz.
 
 

Amerika Birlesik Devletleri gibi gelismis ulkelerde sivil toplum orgutleri ve ozel kuruluslar doganin, vahsi hayatin kirletilip yokedilmesini onlemek  icin cok ciddi calismalar yaparken, ne yazik ki ulkemizde bu is hala ciddiye alinmis degil. Hergun doganin yokedildigini, ormanlarin yakildigini, ve yerlerine buyuk beton binalarin insa edildigini gormek hala isin ciddiyetinin farkinda olmadigimizdan ileri geliyor.

Dunyanin belki de en guzel topraklarina sahip oldugumuz ulkemizde, yonetenlerin vurdumduymazligi ve oy kaygilari yuzunden ne yazik ki hergun bir sazligin, bir gölün, bir korulugun bir ormanin, bir yesil alanin ortadan kaldirilip yerine derme catma gecekondularin yahut da hic bir estetik gorunusu olmayan anlamsiz binalarin uredigini gormek gercekten de cok uzucu..
 
Yine butun dunyada Greenpeace, Vahsi Dogayi Koruma, vb. gibi kuruluslar buyuk kampanyalar acarak doganin yokedilmesine engel olmaya calisirlarken ulkemizde ne yazik ki bu isle ciddi sekilde ugrasacak bir kac kurulustan baska hic bir sivil toplum orgutu bulunmuyor.  

1992 yilinda Sn.Hayrettin Karaca ve Sn.Nihat Gokyigit tarafindan kurulan ve "TURKIYE COL OLMASIN" sloganiyla yola cikan TEMA VAKFI buyuk cabalarla erozyonun, doga kirliginin ulkemiz icin ne kadar buyuk bir tehlike oldugunu butun gucleriyle anlatmaya ya da Sn.Bekir Coskun gibi duyarli birkac kose yazarimizin, doganin insan icin ne buyuk bir onemi oldugunu vurgulayarak yazdiklari yazilara ve gosterdikleri olaganustu cabalara ragmen  ne yazik ki insanlarimiz bunu hala anlamamakta israr ediyorlar.
 
Bir gun, gunes dogdugunda pencereden disari baktiginizda tek bir yesil gorememek, bir tek kus sesini duyamamak, denizin kendine ozgu o guzelim kokusunu alamamak, ya da sokakta ayaklariniza usulca sokulup miril miril sevgi dolu sesler cikaran bir kedi yavrusunun insana verdigi o inanilmaz duyguyu hissedememek, kopeginizin size kosup havlamasini, sevgi gosterilerini isitip gorememek, bir agac altinda oturamamak,  yesil cimenler uzerinde kosamamak, sanki cok onemliymis gibi mangal yapma keyfi ugruna  koca bir ormani ya da korulugu icindeki butun canlilariyla beraber yakmaktan, kavurmaktan, yoketmekten  cekinmeyen bir zihniyetin bir gun gelip de mangal yapacak bir agac alti bile bulamayacagi durumunda kalacagi gunler cok da uzak degil.    

Birgun cocuklarimiz ne yazik ki agacin yesilini, denizin mavisini, hayvani ve hayvan sevgisini sadece bilgisayar oyunlarinda  gormeye baslayacaklar..
Hatta basladilar bile..  
 
Bunun ne buyuk bir felaket olabilecegini dusunebiliyor musunuz ? 
 
Ben dusunmek bile istemiyorum.
 
Doga ile canlinin ayrilmaz bir butun oldugunu ve doga olmadan canlilarinda olamayacagi gercegini lutfen artik anlamaya calisalim.
 
Doga da sadece "insan" vardir, doga insana hizmet eder gibi bir dusunce ile hic bir canliya yasama hakkini vermeyen, yakan, yikan, kiran, olduren, katleden en ilkel canli "insan" olmak yerine dogada varolan her canliya saygi gostererek insanin diger canlilarla beraber ayrilmaz bir butun olmasi ve dogada yasamasi gerektiginin ve gerekliliginin bilincine varmanin artik zamani gelmedi mi ?
 
saygilarimla
