Watching from the veranda of his coach, the president of the railway, saw a gang of his men take a chain saw to the next tree. He wondered if the person who had invented the chain saw, really understood the power that it had placed in the hands of man like him.
Then again as a president why should he worry about such things. He knew that he did not care. He would be long gone before mankind realised that too many trees had been removed. That the world’s climate was linked to trees, and without trees, the climate would go into free fall.
By then his descendants would have power, they would be able to survive and prosper from the situation. Yes he would drive his workforce harder, the trees must go. What did he care. ‘Take them all down, thats what I pay you for, damn you, cut them down’.
