Protecting the environment is important. We take it for granted and believe there is an endless supply of its valuable natural resources. It's true that nature replenishes itself, but not at the rate we're recklessly exhausting it. Some people argue that they would rather earn money than save the environment. However, have they thought about what would happen when all the resources have been used up? Since everything comes from raw materials, what can we sell then? What would we spend on? Will the pieces of paper we call money be of any value?
