Little Moai: No more trees?
Big Moai: No more trees. Wind blows the soil into the sea. No more vegetables. No more trees to make fishing boats.
A resource parable. Easter Islanders used their resources for food and for erecting their religious statues. Had they restricted their tree cutting to clearing just enough land for food and fishing boats, left trees for shelter, and not cut trees for rolling the statues, they might have survived. Perhaps the religion they created helped destroy their society.*
