The environment is just fine, it does not need "saving." Be a good steward of the land? yes! But this earth's environment is the most robust, hearty, rugged, determined thing in the universe. Even with abuse, it recovers and overcomes quickly. Nothing man has done to the environment even compares to what mother nature has done to herself, yet, it always recovers--and without any help from the people who live here.

I believe the Church has been saying for years to "Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do or do without". Also we are told we have been given stewardship of the earth, so I am amazed by Dumprake's attitude and remind me to lend him my home.

I find it interesting when you look at the Church's actions to develop improved buildings with lower energy consumption and PV panels.

You don't have to believe the science on climate change to want to live smarter. Look at companies like 3M and Walmart to see how they are focusing on improving profits whilst reducing their global impact.

I am sorry to say comments like The environment does not need "saving". is not born out by the facts. Oh that is to say unless you work for a fuel company.

Tell that to the people of Chernobyl or Fukushima where the real estate there is so contaminated that it will not be inhabitable by humans without protective garment for thousands of years.

Yes, in the next million years or so, the "environment" will recover. But not fast enough for farmers and real estate agents.

Our environment is hearty, robust and able to recover. But it doesn't have to include us. It's easy to see why any effort an individual undertakes to protect the environment needs to be 'secret'. In utah, you face the wrath of most if you're openly green.

I forgot...without the greenies the earth will end. How foolish of me.
