Our way of handling and interacting with nature has been marked by dominance and exploitation, hence, we have failed to think of moral concerns.
This is due to humanity viewing the environment as a resource to be exploited.
From time immemorial, nations have been siphoning from the environment, with little attention being paid to nourishing it.
Our failure to realise that nature has been depleting fast has led human beings to engage in expansionist policies and not to replenish the earth, but to plunder its resources.
The idea of survival and greed has superseded moral reasoning in such a way that the State, in which the world is, may have reached a point of no return, as the environmental Armageddon is threatening to render the earth uninhabitable.
