We used to talk about things beyond the president once upon a time. Anyone have an opinion on this?

Every species time on this planet is finite. Regardless of how it happens, every species will become extinct at some point. I guess it all depends on whether you feel specific types of extinctions are more tragic than others, but in the end does it really matter?

It seems pretty well reasoned to me. I am sure that others will disagree.

It does if humans want a viable planet to live on.

Which brings on the conversation about which species are important to us as humans.

Good to be atop the food chain.

How much are you willing to give up today in order to delay an inevitable future for humans you will never know, or quite frankly, may never even exist?

I personally am all for environmental stewardship, but I always find it interesting to hear what drives others to be good stewards. I guess my reasons may be more selfish.
