The problem with this discussion is that we are trying to deal with the symptoms of the problem. We have been ravaging the planet Earth which is a living organism--polluting the oceans and rivers, the air, not only with fossil fuel detritus, but our latest technologies. One example is the abuse of cell phones. Cell phones are an ingenious instrument but we must put up power towers to accommodate these instruments adding to the atmospheric pollution. I am an abuser as well by my use of a computer which I'm sure adds to the problem. We have gone overboard on technology. And I haven't even mentioned the use of automobiles and so many insults that we perpetrate on our beautiful planet.
The terrible thing is that now we demand these things and think it is our privilege to do with the Earth as we wish. I don't know if there is any turning back.
