If one takes all the emotion out of it, the natural weather and earth conditions, over previous time periods, have killed far more species, let alone creatures from one species.To be honest, the planet doesn't need us to save it.
If we keep plundering and destroying what nature provides it will be us that need to be saved.
The planet and living creatures besides us will be here long after we've gone.
Sure, agreed.If one takes all the emotion out of it, the natural weather and earth conditions, over previous time periods, have killed far more species, let alone creatures from one species.
Take ice ages into account. Look at the history of fossil's etc. Humankind was not involved in those extinctions.
Sustainability is the key but, sadly, the last time that wildlife and humans were balanced was around the time of the Berlin Congress. Since then, Europeans have flooded Africa with the colonial benefits of medicine, vaccines, sanitation etc which enabled the human population to increase some twenty-fold to the detriment of the environment. The inevitable result will be the extinction of all wildlife - in the lifetimes of many of us.This, says the government of Botswana, is about the “sustainable management of wildlife”, given that it needs to consider the welfare of its citizens as well as the conservation of its rich biota.
