Plusultra Presents the complete original Dr. Seuss environmentalist cartoon, "The Lorax"

The Lorax was as much a visionary as his genius creator Dr. Seuss.
I remember this cartoon from when I was a child and I can't believe it has taken this long for the world to admit to what a Rhyme telling children's book writer was obviously aware of years ago.

We can all learn a lot from the Lorax.

What do you think about the current environmental crisis?

all kinds of books were out 30 years ago --on the enviromnental crisis, and as a kid I recieved some books and in elementary school we planted trees and so forth-- but really most people thought short term, poured weed killer on their lawns and ignored the "nutty earth people" and no one recycled anything... a lot of people think -whats in it for ME? right this second?
thinking like that, well good luck to the planet.

all of my neighbors use a chemlawn service--we are on a hillside above a river which is being polluted more by this practice. chemical fertilzers and weed killers do a crapload of damage--

Brilliant plus ultra.

You dig up some cool shit.

How beautiful and poetic that was.

More information - less knowledge.

We are doomed.
