I'm sure we've all heard people talking about saving the planet.
And really... That's just rubbish. The Earth isn't sick. It's not dying. It's been around for billions of years.
The last 2000 years is just a small speck in the timeline of the Earth. Dinosaurs roamed the earth. Earth has been through multiple ice ages, global warming phases, etc...
There was probably no life on Earth when it first started. And it was doing fine as a planet just floating around in space. And it's still a planet floating around in space, now, but now there's life on it.
You see... We, humans, can't really destroy the planet. Like we aren't gonna crack the planet into two right? Not really likely...
HOWEVER... What we can do... Is to make the planet uninhabitable for humans. Humans... Cos there will be a lot of animals and insects that will survive after Earth becomes inhabitable for humans.
So you know what... All these people who sound noble trying to "save the planet"... Well... They are trying to save our/their home... EARTH. They are trying to maintain the status quo so that humans can continue to thrive on Earth...
But no... They aren't saving the planet. Cos the planet isn't sick, it's not dying. It will probably still exist long after humans are gone. And it will regrow and flourish.
Humans have destroyed the homes of thousands of animals. The Earth itself has destroyed and made extinct millions of animals. It's the circle of life and evolution. Only man thinks they are great enough to "protect" these animals for "future generations".
Yes, of course, it's the actions of man that cause many species to go extinct. And I don't fault man/people for trying to protect things and keep the status quo... No one likes change. It's such a pity if XYZ species goes extinct. And yet millions of other species have gone extinct. And you know what... "Noone" really cares. The plants don't care, the Earth doesn't care, the other animals don't care... And guess what? Only humans care...
The idea that... Something only has value only when someone has put value on it. (You know, like diamonds) And in this context... Man has made the idea of protecting endangered species "valuable".
And man has destroyed the habitat of thousands of species and also... Man is also destroying his own habitat. And like all species, we will try to adapt and change and save ourselves.
So make no mistake... All those folks trying to save our planet... Are really trying to save our own home. And many people don't care. They don't realize that it's their kids or grand kids that's gonna suffer and face the consequences.
Now, of course, I'm not saying. Let's just don't care and let our habitat, the Earth, become inhabitable. I'm just trying to put things into context.
1. We aren't saving the planet. We are trying to protect our home.
2. Endangered animals are worth saving cos humans feel they are worth saving. Noone else really bothers.
3. No one likes change. So they try to preserve the status quo.
Why we shouldn't save the planet?
Cos the planet doesn't need saving.
