The destruction of nature can happen without realizing it, this can happen because of the carelessness of human behavior itself, due to exploring nature unwisely and without even realizing it is an abomination of greed that is never satisfied. It is true that nature can be explored for the prosperity and livelihood of all people, such as processing mining, logging forests, but all of these things if there is no policy limit, everything if excessive will cause bad things to happen to human life itself. Nature after being explored with traces that humans do sometimes without thinking about how to respond to the explored nature can return at least to be able to function again as worthy of another life, not become a place of destruction for the sake of a need for life and self-satisfaction to live a decent life. All of this can be addressed by the behavior of everyone in life, whether this can be done wisely or should it be completely destroyed, even with the destruction caused by nature itself, because nature must roll not only for the sake of human satisfaction, but also for the sake of human satisfaction. nature gives back the best for other things of human life.

Curator Comments

Prior to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, there was no widespread appreciation nor awareness that the biosphere is a fragile system, vulnerable to human-induced impairment ecosystems, and that air, water, soil, and ecosystems, such as wetlands and forests should be the subject of special legal protection. Given that environmental laws were put into place in the 1970s and 1980s, in order to protect the environment, it’s surprising that continual deregulations in the past decade have motivated little to no public outcry. The reversal of the US’ EPA climate change policies, the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, and the move to rescind or roll back the key regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting renewable noncarbon-based energy sources were perhaps the biggest assaults on science in the name of deregulation. Widespread rollbacks to deregulate and promote the fossil fuel industry led us to our now most worrisome global threat posed by climate change.

 

As we seek to redefine humankind’s relationship to nature, Environmental Law and clear national mandates are essential. Rather than exploiters, we need to become stewards of nature; respecting the functioning of natural systems by limiting our activities which disturb these fragile systems. We urgently need to establish and implement environmental laws and operationalise our international treaties to radically redefine the relationship between humans and nature, subordinating all initiatives to benefit two communities—our ecosystem and future generations. Unfortunately, because environmental law is relatively modern is not yet well-integrated into either domestic legal systems or international law. If environmental law is to survive, it must reflect a permanent paradigm shift because, to date, it has shown more discontinuity than continuity. The ecopathic ideology, Neoliberalism, that dehumanises all individuals as consumers, suggests that unregulated markets can resolve almost all social, economic, and political problems. It operates and is based upon the pretences of the maximization of wealth and power, but ultimately at the expense of everything the market deems expendable, such as nature and our ecosystems.
