If a king has dominion over his subjects, does that mean he should trample them, use them and give nothing back?
Of course not.
It's the same with having dominion over the Earth. It's been given to us for our enjoyment and protection. When we pass it on to future generations, we should give it to them in better condition than when we received it. We should use our wonderful technology to produce cleaner forms of energy, to filter out the pollutants, to recycle more products and produce food, clothes, paper, paints, furniture, without resorting to toxins or poisons.
Let us be a farsighted people and give future generations an Earth that has not been trampled.
