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.
@dumprakeTell 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.
