Not quite. I think it is very important to try to preserve habitat. But if we don't address population explosion, I don't see that habitat being preserved for very long. People have a way of taking what they need to survive.So are you saying we should not try to conserve orchids in their habitat because people will mow everything down anyway?
Or maybe when we have totally trashed the earth, we'll have invented the technology to travel to another planet so we can trash that, also.I fully agree. I am not sure the human race as a whole has come to the point of realization that we must protect habitats and use the earths resources more wisely. Things may still have to get worse before human's really make conservation a priority. Or maybe we will be lemmings and just jump off the cliff with no realization. It is hard swimming against the tide and convincing enough people to turn the tide from the cliff. What also makes it hard is most of us now will be dead before human's get to that cliff.
That's pretty cynical. Most of the people on earth are good people who want to do the right thing as they know it. Lemmings is a good analogy -- most of us are followers. Unfortunately, we follow the wrong guidelines. And most of our leaders, politicians and religious, are responsible for that.
