The desire to conserve natural resources for human appreciation and use was extended to treating the entire planet as the human "environment". So environmentalism just means taking care of nature in the sense of Genesis 1:28, some say. --Ed Poor 20:27, 22 May 2007 (EDT)

  • The purpose of today's environmentalism is to consolidate power structures into NGO's (Non Governmental Organinisations). These NGO's will be used to influence corporate, legislative, and judicial bodies in the regulatory manipulation of the worlds societies to conform to their sustainable development vision of the world. Sustainable development in this case means the redistribution of wealth from rich nations to the third world. The elimination of privately owned property by individual citizens. Thereby creating a Human-made utopian Garden of Eden... without God, of course. That is what is meant by the term environmentalism. I, myself prefer conservationalism of a conservative nature instead.--Roopilots6 22:40, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
  • If you want to go on bible verses try Revelations 7:3 " Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads." Environmentalism Isn't just about saving resources.-Vcelloho 22:08, 28 December 2007 (EST)
Environmentalism is all about controlling natural resources. More specifically the restraint from accessing those resources. If you want to know some of the reasons you can read the Earth Charter to start with and find out what sustainable development means to you.--Roopilots6 16:11, 8 July 2008 (EDT)
