I believe that animals are more important than humans because they actually help the environment, unlike us humans. We eat them for food so WE can survive, when we are the ones polluting and harming the plants which the animals need, and what did they ever do to us to deserve this?
Animals have helped the environment so much, and yes, humans do too, but we hurt it in many more ways. We invented the car as a way to get to places faster, but the gas prices have gone through the roof and we didn't think about how much pollution it would cause until later in life, so we have decided to try and make electric cars instead, but you have to charge it for about eight hours to get good mileage and we have to burn more fuels for the electricity which pollutes more than gas. We litter too much though,, because we are too lazy to help the environment, and a small portion of the world which has been kept for our large pile of trash has grown too large to do anything about it now. What is your side of the debate?
Animals use up resources too! They eat each other in cold blood, attack there own children, and do not care about the environment as long as it sustains them.
Animals do not care about each other.
Also, the environment can help itself. It has survived asteroid bombardment, cosmic rays. Collisions with a Mars-like planet. Plastic and carbon aren't going to stop the Earth. The Earth will shake us off her, kill us, and re-start until the sun ends Earth. __________________________________
