Does Clean Mean Extreme Green?

Continued from page 1

The environmental movement now insists that we leaverepparttar 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 ofrepparttar 134920 ground or build homes, we are inrepparttar 134921 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 onrepparttar 134922 planet. People have not always been wise inrepparttar 134923 way they have dealt withrepparttar 134924 environment, however they may also berepparttar 134925 worldís best hope. Many scientists tell us that without people andrepparttar 134926 natural progression of their development,repparttar 134927 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 sawrepparttar 134928 need to protect wild animals andrepparttar 134929 environment. He did this by creating refuges and special areas that were protected byrepparttar 134930 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.

The Impossible Machine

Impressed? You should be! By now you know that I canít even begin to make this machine, even with allrepparttar technology today or inrepparttar 127722 next thousand years. So Iíll confess right now that I canít make it, even if I wanted to. So it would be no way that it could just happen by accident? And I donít feel bad that I canít build it because neither can anyone else. Not even a team of scientists, engineers, and inventors.

Now let me say that I am not talking about science-fiction, I am talking about something that is very real. And itís been around for thousands of years, too. Itís not really a machine, though because no machine will ever be able to be so complex and do so many things by itself. A machine, by comparison, is a crude and stupid device. But this is real. Itís called a ďcellĒ. Your body is made up of literally billions of them, each functioning on itís own without any instruction from you. They all work together with every other cell inrepparttar 127723 body to maintain and support life. They never go to class but you will have to if you want to begin to understand what little we actually know about them.

Maybe you were not aware that a cell was so much more wonderful than any machine made by man could ever be. And more complicated, too. More than any machine that could be built.

Which brings me torepparttar 127724 question...Who did?
