Consumption is not "cool": stop consumption.
1 March 2011 | by youAreCrazyDudeSee all my reviews

The preservation of environment has to do with only one thing: preservation of environment. For the sake of the most vicious predator (human) and his / her children. Human is most vicious predator because s/he is the only animal that kills for sports (pleasure). Same applies for preservation of any species: if human cannot control the environment and causes species to go extinct - then human must begin to learn now to preserve environment and animals, because human population is growing exponentially (without bounds) and nature (trees) with its animals are DISAPPEARING: there will be no place left for forest, nature, animals. No place left for Healthy Environment. CONSUMPTION is not "cool" anymore. Stop consuming and live in harmony with environment.
