Thank God there are people in this world who have an interest in saving it. Isn’t preserving this planet an honorable goal for us to have?Isn’t providing life for future generations pretty important? Thank you to everyone who thinks this topic is of utmost importance, and has gotten past the point of it being an argument of some kind. This is not something that might happen someday- it is happening now.
