I guess we all have our own way of supporting a cause.

Earth grows too, just like us! Whether it is in a healthy way it is...

Humans have lived on this earth for million of years and it is slowly deteriorating. Our population is only getting bigger and so is the damage that we are causing. Our air is being polluted by smoke that goes into it everyday from steel mills or big factories. How can we help our earth grow in a healthy way?

People everywhere have different views about environmental problems! Here are the categories, see which one you fall under! It will help you understand that not everyone has the same views about the environmental issues. First is the Environmental Worldview, people who fall under this category have a set of values reflecting how you think the world works and what you think your role in the world should be, such as what is wrong and what is right. Second is the Planetary Management Worldview. People in this category believe that we are separate from nature, and that nature exists mainly to provide us with our needs and increasing wants! Then we have Stewardship Worldview. This category holds that we can and should manage the earth for our benefits and that we should also be caring towards the earth. We are the responsible managers for the earth and should discourage environmentally harmful forms. And lastly there is Environmental Wisdom Worldview. If you fall in this category, you believe that we are part of, and totally dependent on nature! That nature exists not only to help humans, but all the other species. It encourages earth-sustaining forms! So? Which one is you?
