Does anyone hate the environment? I don't think so, but the argument rages on and on about the importance of it. There are those who fight for every tree and those who would gobble up mountains for profit.
Obviously, the appropriate amount of natural destruction is somewhere between these extremes.
Here's some easy ones: Since pre-history we have killed animals for food and their parts (fur and bones). Forests are destroyed that we may grow useful crops.
But...How many holes should we dig for oil? And where? How much can we burn without adversely effecting the atmosphere?
Questions, questions, questions.
