I think as humans we could live much simpler lives but we choose to destroy the earth in order to make our lives better. If you think about all the nice wooden furniture we have all around our homes, most of it is really not necessary. But we cut down enormous amounts of trees to make it. How about all the printing and photocopying we do, then throw all the paperwork in the bin? trees again. I could go on and on but I think you get the gist of what I'm trying to say.
Sometimes when I watch TV programs of the people living in jungles and their cultures, they don't have homes built like our homes, they kill and eat for the day (using every part of the animal for food, clothes, medicine etc) so they don't need to store huge amounts of food or have vast amounts of waste. They use the jungle resources as and when necessary, and they seem to survive quite well. It makes me feel a bit sick to see that a lot of what we actually do is destroying our own earth.
After all that, man wants to occupy Mars or another planet!
I like the wild but to be honest, prefer to live in the tame, most probably because that's all I know.
