The point is compromise. Look into alternate fuels, alternate energy, selective foresting, crop rotation... We can still have our amenities and protect the environment as well. Solar and wind power, for instance. Both are extremely powerful if utilized correctly, and very well could take the place of electricity. Selective foresting allows for lumber and stripping of land for crops without destroying native animal habitats. Crop rotation allows a larger variety of crops on a single piece of land, rather than having multiple pieces of land for each different crop. There are hundreds of ways that we can preserve both the environment and our own way of life.
