    Not just since I live in it

    and like that it's necessary but because I think it's the least humanity can do: Be careful. After all we already take so much space, don't we? Anyway I was using my free day last friday to go and pick up garbage in the area near the stream where I live. The city doesn't have...

    I do care. However, I feel a bit hopeless at

    this point. I feel like there are massive forces working against any little thing I do to help the environment. Is that jaded of me? Well its not like I stopped doing that stuff. recycling, trying to buy stuff without massive pointless packaging, try to not consume too much crap...

    Humanity is too concerned with the well being

    of the individual, one person. But we seem to often forget that without a clean environment humanity will not survive. We need to learn to prioritize.

    "i Care About The Environment" Just Doesn't Quite Describe My Position

    The Idiots Have Doomed Us All... Pretty Much.

    Idiots can justify anything. Our pride, vanity and custom of valuing highest that which is purely ornamental will be our downfall. We pour too much money and effort into toxic things and empty, superficial things - barely anything into compassion, consideration or thoughtfulness...

    Some people think that the government should

    spend as much money as possible on protecting the environment. Others think this money should be spent on other things such as education and healthcare. Which one of these opinions do you agree with?? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
