I further suggest that the wisest course to take when we don't fully understand or care what we are doing to the earth is to stop doing it and start caring. That, of course, requires radical changes to our ways of life, but in a macro sense, I don't see how our species can continue to live on this planet in the long term without those changes. Short term arguments between one kind of ism and others, when all of them are ultimately destructive, are not helpful.
That's Doug, speaking Ex Cathedra.
Please forgive us for enjoying our non-helpful discussions about this topic anyway, ok?
