As the captains of industry continue to rake in profits with the help of bailouts from "government cronies" without a care for the environment, the ecosystem is facing disaster. ++ We live in a "culture of wastefulness," where a higher standard of living, such as owning a car, often contributes to environmental damage. ++ Education is the solution. ++ The younger generation is more aware of ecological challenges. ++ Thus, the United Nations and all countries should encourage schools to teach our children how to protect our planet.
