I don't get it and it makes me so mad!
I am a Catholic Christian and I think it's our God-given responsibility to conserve and care for the resources God has given us. God set the world up to run a certain way and when we pollute and waste we are thwarting that plan and not living according to God's will.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
I am not a militant environmentalist; I probably won't ever get to the effort required to recycle 100% etc., but why do I have the right to trash unnecessarily the other creations of God? Especially when I have specifically been given a responsibility to care for the earth.
Whenever the calling up of the righteous happens. Must be off to get a nap at this opportune time.
