A journey from fearing Nature to understanding it and finally exploiting it in order to fuel his progress is the man’s entire journey on this Earth. Nature has always given many things to civilization and its red-haired stepchild, art, and utilized them to their advantage. They have turned them into forms that can be used and creatures man values, making things harder for all others.
Because of the technology, it has changed into a whole new level of compassionate exploitation. From the Industrial Revolution onwards man’s existence has taken leaps and bounds. Man has spewed out poison in solid, liquid, and gaseous forms back at her by taking all that Nature has to offer.
This is a society where natural surroundings are being upon or cut down and destroyed to satisfy man’s needs and wants. There’s only silence in the forest, vale, and desert and the species are disappearing at a high rate than before. Without any treatment, the seas are bearing the brunt too with waste being dumped into them. Japan has cut herself off from the International Whaling Commission and has decided to hunt whales in an exemplary act of political cruelty. One of the most critically endangered niche predatory species is whales.
US and others which is with governments of developed nations are going all-out regressive too, denying climate change and pushing Nature into darker territory altogether.
It’s not that we lost hope, things are rather bleak.
