Recycle, reduce, reuse, local composting, development of sustainable energy and consumer goods, alteration of our eating habits, etc etc.

Spend money and mind your Ps and Qs, which is exactly why it won't happen.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

First fix all the environmental damage that has occurred from 600 BC till now due to human irrigation.

Next, sterilize 90% of humans.

Lastly, return the planet to random wildlife.

The End. Earth is saved.

And by protecting the environment, which part? If 80% of the world is completely uninhabitable (for humans), should we preserve that part?

Should we pump in insane resources to maintain our deserts and tundras? Why?

Eventually, unless there is a serious movement for population controls, mankind must evolve from the role of a protector of the environment to an engineer of the environment. (in a way, we have always been engineers of the environment to some extent. See irrigation.)
