Environmental degradation

The US has been raping the environment since shortly after the first settlers arrived on our shores. We continue to rape the environment around the world when we attempt to extract riches from the earth without regard to the people living near the mining/drilling sites. We rape the environment with wars that kill people and wound the land they die on. Most Americans don’t care because they do not live on or near the environmental damage. If CEOs and their families and politicians and their families and generals and their families were forced to live on or near the peoples and lands they damage, we would be much more careful of this earth we all must share.
