If every action has a reaction, it is stupid to think we can pollute the Earth in all aspects, land, air, water, and nothing happens? Every existance on this planet, as well as the planet itself, is a product of biochemisty. If you change the chemistry on this planet then you change everything. Chemicals bond to one another in various states. There are chemicals in gas, liquid and solid states that bond with molecular chemcials/atoms in the air, water and land. Atoms are the tiniesty particles of elements, which makes everything in this universe, and all elements constantly constantly go through chemical reactions. Carbon, Oxygen, Uranium, Calcium, and so many more, are elements that can make or break chemical bonds. Once a bond is created/broked, then the whole structure changes. It is stupid to think we can just toss oil into the ocean and nothing happens. It is also stupid to think we can burn trash and nothing happens. It is just as stupid to think we just mine for minerals and nothing happens. Global warming is the consequence for our arrogance and greed.

Why do all of you people that dont see something wrong with the way things are going, Hate your shildren and grand children so much that you are unwilling to too damn greedy to error on the side of caution? have you ever ben thursty? have you ever been hungry?

One can only hope that man does something stupid enough to eliminat himself from this planet before it is too late for nature to regain a safe foot hold. Or maybe Mother nature will have enough of is and push us into extinction either way I hope we are gone before it is too late for everything else.

I fear we're beyond the point of no return. These evil, selfish, greedy corporations are so focused only on profit and possessions that they fail to see what is really important in life. They don't see or do not care that they too are going down with the rest of us. It will be the death of us all.
