You conjecture that environmental protection is wrong. I say you are foolish and utterly misguided. Man has unleashed terrors upon this earth that were unimaginable several centuries ago. Think oil spills, nuclear warfare, mass habitat destruction, and terrible pollution. As a student of biology, I know that the balence of nature is fragile and of vital importance. As a student of chemistry, I know how dangerous many chemicals are (e.g., benzene, organomercurics, and fluorides, just to name a few). Many people would like to minimize the danger of what we have done to the earth, but that is wrongheaded. Environmental regulations are the only things that keep you and I from driking water tainted with toulene, breating air laced with lead, and living in a world completely deviod of all but the hardiest creatures. You eschew environmental regulations? I challenge you to a debate!

I think we should protect the environment, But there is a limit, The fossil fuels came from the earth.

Environmental protection costs money. People think that will hurt the economy. Apparently some think the economy is more important than a healthy environment. I can TOTALLY see that. Especially in the fact that 100 million people in China have some sort of lung related problem due to polluted air. But hey, Their economy is pretty successful, So who cares?

I totally agree with DCG

I agree we should conserve the earth. The earth gives us all the services that we need to live and without the environment we are nothing. Many countries have introduced conservation methods, But I think it should be global conservation of the environment and land, If we continue like this in a few years we will not be anything.

The last sentence was a little cheesy, but I agree we should conserve the earth.

I don't know about hypocrisy but I think either way you should be advocating for nature and stuff and not opposing it

Do you lead by example? If you don't have alternative energy, preaching for environment protection would be hypocrisy.
