Would you rather want economical improvements or environmental protection? Or both?

So far, I have believed in the saying that "Modern technology owes ecology an apology." Somehow, we humans have abused our use of Mother Earth in our thirst for easier lives, riches and power. And I just think, along with our need to improve human lives, we have to double think: our benefits and Mother Earth's as well.

Just wanted to engage in new ideas. :)

  • Jun 4 2013: Give you self a chance to graduate first, then look for a good group to support. Maybe you could even make a career out of it. It's going to require millions of young people like yourself to contribute their time and energy into this endeavor. It's a big, big deal. It's our Mother we're talking about. I don't get the governments, the environmental groups, the wealthy elite, the Big Business, the Petroleum industry. All everyone wants is profit and to win the argument. Every politician only cares about getting reelected, they don't care about the people. Governments and Big Business should act like responsible parents, but instead, they act like little brats.
    • Jun 4 2013: maybe i could do both at the same time: start up with my advocacy and take up college.
