A way of thinking that I like to call “Environmental Centrism” blindly held by many people puts us at the top and above all other living things. This is one way that climate change continues to be inadvertently promoted. Once we all realize that we’re no more special than other species, humanity will stand a better chance of defeating this crisis.
