Every scientist in the world, working in their tiny corner, contributing their little bit to improving our understanding of Earth, isn't enough to stop the destruction brought on by extractive practices. I am NOT a radical environmentalist rather more of a pragmatist. You can't take 100% of an areas minerals, reroute mountain streams, poison millions of birds and not expect terrible consequences.
When will we learn and will it be too late? I have faith that humans are able to adapt, but there are so many delicate species, the survival of which is integral to our own, disappearing daily not as a result of evolution but rather as a result of our actions, that I can't see a quick, easy, or cheap fix.
Given that everything takes so d@mn long and I really believe we are at a nexus, I have a difficult time believing that we can fix the problems we created before the world becomes inhospitable for us. Feel otherwise? Let me know, I want the good news.
