Unsustainable Living

For millions of years, man lived sustainably, then suddenly, in the name of progress, he got it into his head to burn oil and coal, to poison the water and air, to bloat the population, to level the forests, to despoil even the remotest parts of earth and to inject massive quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere to wipe out more species than the asteroid that ended the age of the dinosaur. Man bleats I have no choice. The economy makes me do it. And this suicidal loon dares to call himself more advanced than his predecessors?
