Michael Green 000790889 Group 7 August 6 th 2007 “Environmental Apocalypse or Ecologism: the Beginning of a New Era” The world in which we live once thrived with birds whose beauty was beyond compare, fish whose colors were so majestic that we can only dream of, and beasts that roamed the earth with power beyond belief. Since the beginning of man we have slowly shaped the earth into only a shell of what it once was. Our mountains are forever scarred from strip mining, our forests cut down for lumber, and our water and air are polluted from decades of not abuse. The questions that we are faced with get harder and harder to answer with every passing day. Why are temperatures getting hotter? Why is it getting harder to breathe the air? Why are more and more people getting skin cancer? How close are we the earth’s breaking point? One thing is for sure the breaking point is coming and coming soon. A civilization goes through a cycle much like the seasons of a year: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. These are seen as growth, blossoming, decline and breakdown. While we abuse the earth it becomes weaker and in turn gives us less back. I believe that it’s coming to the end of the decline period and we should prepare to get out our winter coats; an apocalypse is coming. When settlers first came to America, the Americas would never be the same. They built buildings, towns and cities.
