Natural wealth of the earth is broken because human greed, a funny thing - there are many people who know about the environment and nature conservation but have attitude who help accelerate the destruction of this nature. According to you, if linked with responsibility, who is responsible in terms of destruction of nature on this earth, whether the Government which gave permission to the management of mining activities, deforestation, etc ? or entrepreneur/businessman ? or we as consumers are often became the subject of energy saving campaign that always asked to be smart when using fuel?

Personally the way I look at things is a lot of the things that happen are man made and caused whether good or bad, but as in terms of destruction depending on how you mean by this a lot of it is predicted in the Bible as things to come. All we can really do is try to hope we will always be Protected by prayer and hope for change and something Good to come from it in the end.

I think we are all responsible for this..since this is a cycle anyway. The entrepreneurs are just doing their job providing consumers what they need.. And since consumers are getting more and more so they need more materials and they sometimes disregard what happens to the environment, so that they can keep making money.

At the end of the day nature will follow it's course not matter what! but I will have to say that some humans have accelerated the process...I read a book some time ago and is about the English when they went to Africa the natives said...they where so hungry about every thing they wanted the herd of cattle the natives kept for their to survive, they dug the gold and made money from it...but the natives were kept poor and made into slaves...they turn a rich country/rich soil and it's people into poverty thousands natives were killed in the process and it was all made in the name of progress! who's progress? not the Africans of course...and then we have the Spanish going to South America and destroying a whole civilisation that was there for centuries who gave them the right to do that?. Yes I would say we humans are partly responsible/or mostly any way for destroying what we should have close to our heart...I guess greed has a lot to do with it.

The one who created the earth actually. It is to be armored to protect such disasters from human and from nature itself.

We are responsible, we should take more part like recycling, becoming Vegan and many options. It takes many trees to be destroyed, a large amount of land to raise cows and farm animals. Sign petitions, ask the government, call them, it makes a difference

Honestly NO ONE. The thing is you cannot live without consuming natural goods. With the growing population the need also increases. But then people should take steps to used the resources modestly. But in this day and age if I won't cut that tree some other one will so I may as well do it before he does if you know what I mean. The competetion is so high that if I won't do it some other person will do it so i'll do it and survive and let the nature go to hell.

I am very sad with happening in our environment today. People are so selfish and only think of themselves without thinking the next generation that will live this earth. If each of us will just contribute in saving and protecting Mother Earth then we have the right to live in this planet!

I must agree with the other respondent; we are all responsible, either directly or indirectly. An American Indian proverb says "Take only what you need, and leave the land the way you found it." Even if we are not personally cutting the trees that lead to de-forestation we use the trees they cut, almost. When we walk into a home-improvement store, we see more lumber there than can be sold in a day, so they in essence took more than they needed. But we want the convenience of buying what we want when we want it. So companies respond by harvesting too much, because store A would not want you to go to store B to buy the product they ran out of. Same goes at grocery stores, they have foods that perish and must be destroyed, so they took too much. I heard one of the Presidential candidates the other day saying that we could satisfy some of our energy dependence and create new jobs by exploring new territory to drill in. Yes we need jobs, and we need energy, but are we willing to destroy more wild areas to do it? If you say yes, then you are against the environment; if you say no, you do not understand the need for jobs and energy. Politicians would stretch that to say you are against the working man. If you want to place blame on one thing though, I would have to vote for money. Everyone wants money, and some will destroy the environment to get it. But since we all have money to some extent, those who destroy are happy to take ours in exchange for the goods they harvested by their destruction. So yes, we are all responsible in one way or the other.

The whole mankind is responsible for this,us. That's why we have to start saving our mother earth. Unity and cooperation is must to make this advocacy possible.We can do this in our own little ways like throwing waste properly,reuse,reduce,recycle.
