        there should be stewardship since humans have such power to change the Earth so rapidly.  And the power to wipe other living things out forever.  Who are humans to create conditions that determine the death of an entire species?  Is a person's life "destroyed" just because they can't just go anywhere and do whatever they want?  Is there no coexistence, appreciation of all life forms, or is that too much trouble?

        •  I don't know, maybe change the laws that allow (0+ / 0-)

          non profit orgs. Many say the CBD is responsible for species extinction, I'd say unless we can directly tie it to their activities it's hard to say.
