We have advanced a lot in all the fields, but what happened to those thick forests, flowing rivers, mountains, birds chirping, friendly people, man has destroyed them for his own progress, Development is necessary, but is it necessary to destroy the nature for the sake of Development.

No, the nature must be preserved for the next generation to come... and you know what, I have a dream, why we cannot though all those things underground? So that we can maintain the green surrounding over the surface of the mother earth... I am sad looking at the city with very rare tress.... and I am afraid that one day our children would not see what real tree is... i hope it would not happen in the years to come... but I am happy to see that Philippines is still a green country in general!

We really do not care for things we get free.The chirping of the birds are not more melodious to us than the loud jarring music so who cares about excessive use of pesticides or boimagnification. The cool breeze is not as refreshing as the suffocating air conditioners.Who cares for fresh vegetables when one can keep them cooked and unspoiled for weeks in refrigerator even at the cost of releasing some CFC which can deplete the ozone layer?When one can build factories and put up big buildings who cares for the forest or habitat destruction of our wild life?My life is comfortable with all the facilities modernity has brought with it.Who cares if earth will be having temperature so high that human cannot live on earth after 300 years?

In some ways yes. However, what we should seek is balance and preservation. There are sacrifices to be made as far as our natural resources is concerned to give way to development. The fields, forest and clean rivers could still be preserved even with development. We just have to find the political will to preserve them in the face of very fast developments.

yes some people harm the nature for their own business.... not realizing what maybe the cause of it for their people around them... didnt realized that maybe their own family will suffer someday... so we have to do things that is right as soon as possible to extend and save the natures...

That is why it is important to reforest our surroundings again. Plant a tree and some perennial greens in your own vicinity.

Sweetie, development means money. That is more important for most governments than their countries nature, UNFORTUNATELY. If they keep this up, nothing will be left. TATA.

dear samson, the emerging environmental challenges we face today brought about by men's destruction and greed will require broader agreement than we’ve currently managed to attain over the nature of those challenges. let's count as one the climate change. we will have to make sacrifices together. for the people to agree that the challenges even exist, we need some common understanding of what constitutes these real information. but where is it? the flow of information is being rerouted through various sewer lines, where truth is mixed with a pungent recipe of lies and innuendo. just look at the info about the oil slick. we first thought it is going to be remedied fast and that the slick is just a few gallons. but now it is said to be 120,00 gallons per day. we do not know that.. it maybe more. i wish we could have a great earth again. ann

It's really not necessary to "develop" these areas. It's done by greed as companies look for ways to make more money. They buy up farmer's land and put in large, resource guzzling homes that are not necessary. The population is not growing that fast and if it were, people could live in smaller homes, apartments, condominiums... It's greed. The love of money. They don't care what they destroy in the process.
