What gives us the right to mine and pollute?

What about the sea – its plants and animals, birds and fish? What gives us the right to mine and exploit and pollute and kill without care for nature?

  • Then the LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. Genesis 2:15 
  • The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land. Leviticus 25:23-24
  • A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. Proverbs 12:10

The concept of sustainability is known since times ancient.

  • I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable. Jeremiah 2:7
