The way humanity is dealing with environmental issues is alarming. Our lack of responsibility and lack of planning for the future of our planet for next generations may have irreversible consequences. What should we do to wisely steward the planet we all have on our hands? What should we stop doing/or do to our planet for the well-being of all?
