My theory is, we want an easier way of doing things and we want a shortcut to getting what we want and we will stop at nothing to get there. For example... the Bush admin. and some other important people "need" places to build their stupid little developments. But the only way to do that in places like California is to cut down one of the most ancient and sacred trees we have, the Sequoia. It really bothers me that someone would willingly destroy these trees some of which are over 300 years old! Why on earth would you end the long life of a tree that could for all we know could live to be thousands of years old! I hate it! Who would do that? I'll tell you who, self-absorbed, selfish people! I don't understand it! So that is my theory of why we are wrecking the environment.
