The main concept we need to keep in mind when talking about environmentalism is that the planet will survive us, but we might not survive the planet. The problem, then, is not terracide but suicide or, at the least, homicide. No matter how much “damage” we do to the earth, we will only be able to relocate resources and alter geography. What we can do by causing damage is bring about, directly or indirectly, the deaths of thousands, millions, or even billions of people. The modern, essentially pagan, environmental movement, which demands the earth be saved for the earth’s sake, puts reverence into nature at the expense of humanity. Their critique, therefore, falls on deaf ears as a common person will never act radically and dangerously to protect plants and animals, but we can surely expect them to take to action in order to protect themselves and others. Peace!
