More harm caused by technoloy and science

If you took buffalo straight out of the wild, bred them with each other, and tried to feed 7 billion people, it would never work. They need to be domesticated and have specific traits bred in them to feed us more efficiently. It's not a bad thing, to change something in order to better meet our needs...

Perhaps because much of the damage is already done. Perhaps because most people won't give a single shit about the environment and will have the same thoughts as you up until they are affected by it first-hand.

Exactly. At some point, it will directly affect even the United States, and they'll be forced to curb their emissions.

We're in the middle of a mass extinction but nobody seems to care, why is that?

Because we're not going extinct, there are more of us than any time in history. If we start to die off, the problem will fix itself because there will be less greenhouse gasses being produced with less consumers.

The damage being done is exponential, and nobody wants to solve the problem which is rooted in civilization, because that would sacrifice their comfort

Excuse us for not wanting to sleep on the ground, drink parasite infested water and eat raw fox liver. If humanity could survive by reverting back to a primitive ape-like state, then there would be no point in saving us. We'd lose everything that makes us who we are, our creativity, our zest for experimentation and discovery, our need to advance ourselves and forever expand our minds and improve our lives.
