They are as much to blame as the businesses who dump their waste in our drinking waters, and allow their manufacturing run-off to poison the fish in the oceans. The same governments who have turned a blind eye to the banking industry, allowing it to conduct predatory lending, inside trading, and ponzi schemes, and then rewarding them with taxpayers money to keep them in business and allow them their multi-milliion dollar bonuses, are the same governments who promote over-consumerism, which only fuels demand for these products that we really don’t need, and encourages conspicuous consumption in people who don’t really have the means. They want you to keep up with the Jones, and to keep buying things because the more money these companies make, the more money that they make.

The business/manufacturing sectors of the world need to know that this should not be an issue of “we’re trying”, it should be an issue of “you’re going to”. They are all too concerned about what it’s going to do to the income statement, and their bottom line. Business people don’t care about the possibly irreversible damage we’re doing to the environment and to these species who become endangered more and more because of these greenhouse gases emmitted by manufacturing and the use of fosil fuels, they’re too busy gluttoneously consuming food, buying clothes they don’t need. Meanwhile, the four year old girl from Bangladesh, that made those clothes, is starving and illiterate because she has to work so that her family can survive, all on $2.00 a week salary. The animals that are endangered are caught up in this, and all they are doing is what they do, being amazing creatures that have positive symbiosis on their environment, and why, because that’s what they’ve been doing since they evolved to do that, and it’s not their fault that the consumerist nations must destroy the habitat that they’ve obviously been stewarding since before we even stopped flinging our feces to come down out of the trees and walking upright. We are the ushers of the anti-homeostasis way of life, and they simply cannot survive in the environments that we are destroying. Every animal has it’s place in the world, it’s unspoken job to do that HELPS the environment, which is deep inside their primordal DNA, when we destroy it’s source of food or the habitat in which it needs to survive and reproduce, we should feel bad and should take the necessary measures to fix it, but the business world does not see it that way. If they were in the animal’s “shoes” they would feel differently, but instaed they don’t, they’d rather just make a pair of shoes out of the animal, and use cheap, foreign child labor to do so, and sell them for 500 times what it cost to make them.
