More precious still is the service we offer to another kind of beauty: Why are we here?

We need only recall how ecosystems interact in dispersing carbon dioxide, purifying water, controlling illnesses and epidemics, forming soil, breaking down waste, and in many paapal ways which we overlook or simply do papap know about.
