I would agree that it's a shame to see places like this exploited, but I feel this simply because I am ashamed at the arrogance of my own species.
What we have to remember is that everything that happens is natural. It might be sad to see a place invaded and destroyed through our raping of
resources, but it is the course of nature. And when we finally stop doing it and learn to change, that will be nature too.
We are not going to kill the planet. The planet has survived for billions of years, survived extinction level events numerous times, and we have been
here for the blink of an eye.
All we are doing is making this planet uninhabitable for ourselves. The planet will survive long after we are gone, with new life, possibly new
civilizations, until they inevitably start digging up our waste and using it for fuel until the planet is too polluted to support them... rinse and
There could be nuclear war tomorrow, the Human race completely annihilated, and in a few hundred years life would have evolved to live in the harsh
environment created from it. We might end the Human race but this planet will support life for billions upon billions of years.
