How about this?

Sometimes species go extinct, we shouldn't be so arrogant as to think its not part of the ecosystem that we're meant to go extinct too.

When we die, the world will go on without us, and most likely better off for it.  There's a time for everything, maybe the time for mankind is just closing.

I hate to think that the most intelligent species in the history o0f the planet will go extinct out of stupidity.

I am old enough to remember Chernobyl. And to have been living Europe when the East was run by plan economies, and having visited places like Bitterfeld (the chemical-industry center of East Germany). Dante`s inferno comes to mind.

The idea that socialized state economies are somehow good for the environment can only emanate from people who are ensconced in some ivory tower and have no clue about the reality out there.

Who advocated that. Who are you complaining against ?
