The science fiction writer Harlan Ellison wrote a story called "Phoenix without Ashes". Upon discovering the destruction of the entire planet, humanity had to build a massive Ark called Earthship Ark (50 miles wide by 200 miles long). It was composed of many biospheres that mimic the environments of the earth, and selected representatives of its people; their goal is to find and seed a new world of a distant star.
I find such a fate frightening and unacceptable. Isn't it time we all start looking after our planet before our planet stops looking after us? My question is this, as we are all moral agents, do we not all owe duty to protect our environment - for both ourselves and our children? I might think I'm just a drop in the ocean, but if everybody thought that way, we shall continue to dump huge amounts of carbon dioxide into the air and global warming is going to make the movie "Soylent Green" seem like a holiday feast.
