The results of our actions outpace our knowledge and understanding of their repercussions. To put it simply, we do not know what we have done and what we are doing. If an environmentalist is someone who believes that we need to preserve and take care of our natural world, than any person who does not consider him- or herself an environmentalist is suicidal.
