"I love to see people go camping for a few days a year and enjoy the outdoors. But what's really sad
and disturbing is that those same people who have the privilege to enjoy the natural world for a few
days a year, spend the rest of their year polluting the environment and living a wasteful and
ignorant lifestyle. You should stay home if you don't care. That's probably why some people do stay
home in the first place, some people just don't care. So we have to find better ways of making people more aware of the environment and more aware of the choices they make, especially the choices that degrade the environment. If you keep destroying the environment that you need to live, eventually there will be no environment to enjoy at all for anyone. So please do your best to educate yourself about Cause and Effect."
