The right to exist

I think all plant and animal life should get a right to exist to stop extinction and obliteration of natural occurances like forests.

The New Scientist suggest giving nature Human Rights but that is not likely to succeed. There were people who tried to give a monkey human rights to protect the monkey’s picture from being used for copyright purposes.

Giving plants, animals, minerals, etc. the right to exist would help a fixed preservation of earthly life as it is today.

What about the argument of evolution, if we would not change things, probably new life would not evolve?

Yet all evolution so far evolved with the healthy environment intact, without the healthy environment, we would not get much chance to evolve much further. I think we need to bring legislation into action that prevents further destruction of the environment. We do have the Environmental Protection Act 1990 in Britain but there is no world-wide legislation. Brazil doesn’t want to preserve the rainforest as it stifles their economy.
