I woke up this morning and realized that I have been wasting my life focusing on conservation. There is really very little that we can do to save the planet. I mean, who are we kidding? This is a huge planet with many complicated systems and we are just like ants crawling all over it. We can shape the land a bit and construct vast buildings to make us feel like we are the owners of this place, but in reality we are just one of millions of species here. We are pretty insignificant. What’s the use in postponing the inevitable? Let’s just keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere, heat this baby up and let the planet self-destruct!
April Fools, of course!
Conservation is certainly not a load of b.s., unless by b.s. you mean Big Stuff or Best Scenario or Better Scenery. On April 1st it’s easy to kid about things but in all seriousness we do have the power to affect change; we are not so insignificant that we can’t protect our natural resources and improve quality of life for all. If someone says you’re being silly for caring so much about the planet, that your efforts are futile and misguided, look them in the face and say, “Conservation is a load of b.s. – it’s the ‘best scenario’ for our planet!”
