Why the need to feel superior? I suspect you have a VERY deep-seated inferiority complex, mister. Please don't ever adopt a pet or a child.<quoted text>
You don't see rocks act in such a manner either. Know why ? They can't. Do you think cats or dolphins assess whether or not to act in a manner making environmental law necessary, and subsequently make a conscious and rational decision not to ? Ironically, the ability to consciously exploit the environment and enact laws to mitigate the damage caused by such exploitation are both indicative of man's superiority over other animals.
