22 April is Earth Day

Tomorrow is "Earth Day" again. Celebrations and events should take place around the world to mark the occasion. Because of the COVID 19 pandemic, most of them are cancelled. This was also the case last year. The friends of the Earth are mostly left with the internet.
There is a lot to read. The web is flooded with a multitude of more or less accurate memes. Most of it is kitsch, some of it hardly surpasses in naivety. I picked up an image that makes me wonder what the creator is trying to express. Here is my personal interpretation:

An inflated globe made of plastic stuck in the scrub. The surface a colourful patchwork of unrestrictedly sovereign nation states that have so far successfully prevented the earth from becoming happy. That is the current state of our planet. So there is no reason to celebrate.

Last year, I wrote a detailed statement on Earth Day, which I would like to reiterate here.
