You only think about yourself and not the global picture? Same could be said for the Red Cross working in hostile areas in South America and Africa. Why would I bother helping them if I'm not affected at all? It's called being humaine and having compassion for others and not just yourself. From the post above though... it's hard to see that. Do you have any knowledge of global biodiversity? If you don't, then it's hard to have a worthwhile conversation. It'd be like trying to talk about metaphysics with someone who has no knowledge in that field.
