Is there an objective reason to preserve the ability for future generations to live and prosper?

Let's at least not be hypocrites and recognize that we're making it harder for future generations to live. Now if people actually cared, we'd see more concern about this little thing called "sustainability," but I guess I'm just a tin foil hat toting fool who's been indoctrinated to care about people who don't exist yet. Live for today, right?

  • Don't forget not funding space programs, one of the biggest impacting factors on today's society, and the only thing that could really advance it further at a fast rate.

  • -blam!- greenhouse gases. -blam!- the melting ice caps. -blam!- the polar bears -blam!- the wetlands. -blam!- the ozone layer. -blam!- overpopulation. -blam!- the rainforests. So long as I get to drive my Hummer, eat steak every day, and drink water out of plastic bottles I don't give a shit. #YOLO

  • Hmmm. Good question. Maybe you should tell your democratic overlords to cut spending. Future generations are literally being born into debt.

  • It depends who I'm talking to... To you, Dustin, I would say that we can just look at human biology and see that we are wired to continue our species, and that harming our planet is a threat to that, so we must prevent damage from occurring to our species indirectly. To an oil company exec, I'd say "yo dawg, that money ain't gonna do shit for yur grandkids if they get asthma!" Thus far though, I think the US and Europe are doing a good job, China and India are fast becoming the new grim reapers of the world.

  • Our Founding Fathers sacrificed a great deal many to leave a place for future generations to prosper. We have strayed far from that and are leaving a place where future generations are going to suffer

  • Yes, there is an objective reason. It's called morality. What makes you any more important then the next generation, or the previous generation? You have the right to live on this Earth, but with that right comes an intrinsic responsibility.

    • I'm too hedonistic to consider that on an individual level. Societally? It's -blam!-ing retarded not to. People just can't agree on the methods.
