I think differently. Look at all the billions of $$s we spend
on natural history museums and research and so on trying to bring back
as much of the extinct past as possible! Surely in the future this
immense and powerful carring will be greatly amplified and empowered
and infinitely more successful. We are, after all, part of nature,
and thereby, nature most definitely does care. Nature has been
working ceaselessly for billions of years to get to this point where
we can finally start to really care. Now that we finally do, we have
just gotten started. As the old saying goes, you aint seen noth'n
yet! Just give it a chance, realize that you are part of nature, and
help out a bit!
