    DId you create this or did you get this from another source? I need to know for an English project.

    It was a gift from the internet. 🙂 Thanks for stopping in, MS, and for taking the time to leave a comment.

      Would you mind sharing where you got it? I am trying to track down the original creater.

      People send me images all the time. Their origins are a mystery to me. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help to you, MS. Best of luck with your English project.

        Okay thanks! In that case then..for what purpose did you post this picture? What emotions were you trying to get from viewers?

        I posted this image, because it illustrated fairly well thoughts and feeling I have, and because I was hoping to plant a line of thought in the minds of people. People tend not to question the status quo. Along with the image I asked the question “We Are Nature—So… Why Do We Go Against Nature?” which I used as the title of the post. Naming the image “Man Vs Nature Oil Pollution Cities Animals” I hoped that people in search of this image could find it. The emotion I was trying to evoke was empathy, for the earth, the animals and the humans.

        We are nature—so… why do we go against nature? We need clean water to drink, fresh air to breathe, and arable land to grow healthy, nourishing food to eat. Why do we destroy and poison the water, air and land with pollution from factories, refineries, oil wells, fracking (natural gas), coal mining, deforestation, GMO monocropping, factory farming, etc when there are cleaner, healthier, renewable/sustainable alternatives available to us?

        Along the way, as we’re poisoning the world around us, we’re also killing lots of animal and insect species. Mass extinctions are usually caused by things like giant meteorites striking the earth and ice ages, but now we’re in the midst of one that is man-made. If we don’t change our ways, and soon, there’s no telling how much life could be lost, up to and including humans.

        Anyway, that’s pretty much what I was going for. Thank you for your interest, MS.

    Hello,
    I’m back! I was wondering, do I have your permission to use this image for academic purposes? Or does this image have any copy write restrictions?

    The permission isn’t mine to give, sorry, but I wouldn’t think using the image for academic purposes would be an issue. With that, I’ll leave the decision up to you.

    For anyone looking for the image source, I was able to trace it using google image search. It is called “Insatiable” by Theodore Bolha and Chris Davis. It was used as the poster for the 2011 documentary film “End:Civ”.
