The Environmentalist's Revenge: Apocalypse Edition

At the time of this writing, birds are falling from the sky. Thousands off fish are dying all across the world. We also lost a few bats and some pelicans. Google will tell you all about it.

With the web's instant communication, little stories can easily become massive stories. That's probably what is happening here. Even so, these happenings reminded me of a certain left field thought that I have every so often. Without further ado:

Let's suppose that the often prophesied end of the world is really preceded by things like "birds falling from the sky". In olden times, most people assumed that God would be the one taking out the birdies. However, we humans cause birds and other animals to die all the time. Just think about all the trees we have to chop down to build civilizations. Every one of those trees could have housed a birdie!

I'm not really one to.. care.. about the environment, but could it be that the apocalypse eventually comes because we humans didn't care? Would God smack us in the face a few good times for eviscerating his creation? You never know, right? I realize the translation is a little off, but the KJV Book of Revelation says:

" And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." -- Revelation 11:8.

This verse really opens the doors for an exciting environmentalism themed apocalypse. Well, I've gotta buy an SUV, fill it up with gas, and then drive up and down the road for no reason. Take it easy, everybody!
