What bums me out the most is societies collective apathy for change. Nature is abundant and resilient. Call me a starry eyed idealist but, spaceship earth isn't damaged beyond repair yet.

it can be done. "Dare Mighty Things" is something I do believe we are here to do.

Damn dude, that's straight up thread shitting. We will keep discussing a problem that bothers us and we may or may not be able to affect. And you keep sitting on your high horse shitting all over anyone that wants to discuss it.
