    Default save the environment - kill yourself

    I am serious. That's the only solution, right? Just by breathing we create a carbon footprint. Doesn't that make you feel guilty for existing? Or am I the only one?

    The *only* solution?



    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the plants use the carbon dioxide we exhale?

    And, define environment, please.

    Isn't the environment the entire collection of biotic and abiotic constituents/factors?

    We are both a product of, and active participant of this environment.

    To kill oneself in order to "save" the environment is, perhaps, the lowest and must useless kind of martyrdom.

    What's the environment's job, and, more importantly, what's our job?

    If you're serious, and feel guilty, then plant trees to offset green house gases. Erase your carbon footprint.

    But, you're not going to do any of that shit.

    We may only come to different ideas and understanding about the purpose in life (of all living organisms) and indeed the best healing may be not to interfere with their lives.

    But when is it appropriate, or even necessary to intervene?

    There are times when we must take action in order to change the natural course of things.

    This may sound very unzen but, I dunno, to be too zen is to be apathetic.

    Sometimes we need to willfully change things.

    Yes, but there obviously aren't enough plants to negate our harmful effects.

    I'm talking about the natural environment.

    I believe humans have taken enough drastic measures to isolate themselves from the natural cycle of life. Our "active participation" is only negative.

    Lowest? No. Most useless? Maybe.

    Yeah, I know. I might do a little and then lose motivation over time and stop.

    Your life, that's what you owe it. You can't survive without it.
