We need to develop a purist mentality to the environment.
That’s because if everyone wants to have a piece of the pie (the environment) then eventually there will be no pie left! At least not any that we can enjoy or future generations can enjoy. Can the fate of the environment bring an end to our inherent selfish views? A topic like the environment can only gain prominence through self-less thoughts and actions.
When it comes to making decisions involving the environment, the bottom line should be seen as what it is, the “bottom line“. The “top line” and first priority should be our environment and its preservation and growth. Let’s measure our standard of living on environmental terms—not on financial or technological terms, both of which we could possibly live without!
