Tweets,
I had briefly skimmed this thread and had not responded but did want to point out one thing. Connie wrote:

"1. Strict environmentalists said nature has no morals. There is only survival of the fittest, natural selection, evolution. Even people don't really have morals - they have ways of behaving that maximize survival."

I would personally be careful of attaching the label of conservationist or environmentalist to these categories. There are many who have a scientific mind and think about these sorts of questions that are not what we would coin as "environmentalist". It might be better to replace the word environmentalist here with evolutionist.

Just wanted to clarify on that.
