It all depends on what you call changing the environment. Gen 2:15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. KJV Man was intended to maintain the Earth. It is not within his power to change Earth's environment. Some will try to make you believe man can. Quote by David Suzuki, celebrity scientist, alarmist extraordinaire: “All life on Earth is our kin. And in an act of generosity, our relatives create the four sacred elements for us.”..."We have become a force of nature...Not long ago, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, drought, forest fires, even earthquakes and volcanic explosions were accepted as "natural disasters or "acts of God." But now, we have joined God, powerful enough to influence these events." Ha! Ha! Talk about illusions of grandeur.
