The environmental movement now insists that we leave Earth alone. If we take them at their most radical, we should all just kill ourselves and make sure animals are around to eat whatís left of our decaying flesh. Thereís just no other way to look at it. No matter where we try and cut trees, drill for oil, pump gas out of ground or build homes, we are in wrong.
There is a difference between being good stewards of our environment and abandoning it. People are here to stay and we all need places to live, ways to get around and things to eat. Learning from past mistakes, we now produce less pollution and live in a cleaner environment. We use items that place less of a strain on earth resources. We have even found ways to help save other living things that were disappearing on their own from our world. By cutting forests, we forestall inevitable fires, save wildlife and gain a needed source of lumber.
Green Extremists are not environmentalists. They are self-hating humans who feel we a plague on planet. People have not always been wise in way they have dealt with environment, however they may also be worldís best hope. Many scientists tell us that without people and natural progression of their development, world would fall into an environmental stalemate. If dinosaurs were around today, most people would do everything possible to save such rare and exotic animals from extinction.
Humans have always been fascinated with animals. President Teddy Roosevelt was a hunter, but he also saw need to protect wild animals and environment. He did this by creating refuges and special areas that were protected by federal government against overuse or abuse by people. In short, Roosevelt was a sensible environmentalist. He helped create a way for humans, animals and nature to co-exist. Todayís extreme green fanatics could and should take a lesson from Teddy.
