Are we ruining the only home we've got?

According to a landmark international study, our activities as a species is putting more strain on the earth than it can handle.
The consequences of humans activities are severe and include: new diseases, sudden changes in water quality, creation of dead zones along the coasts, the collapse of fisheries, and shifts in regional climate, according to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment Synthesis Report. - CTV.ca News Staff
I'm not a tree-hugging environmentalist. In fact, I'm probably one of those guys that environmentalists consider the enemy. This, however, is quite disturbing.

So much in our world we take for granted. So much could be different if the goals and purposes we set to were less selfish and more altruistic. Seriously, our species is doomed to fail unless more people consider the bigger picture.
