You demanded an answer to these questions.
But I'll answer them anyway.

Your questions and my answers:

Q. Do you not believe me that I have a degree in biology?
A.I don't care.

Q. Are you that stubborn?
A. Shut up cakehead.

Q. Why is that so hard to stomach for you?
A. Shut up cakehead.

Q. Do you not agree that we have turned our back on the natural world with our relentless obsession in burning fuels, mining and destroying land, deforestation, and overall apathy towards preservation.
A. So I suppose the misbehavior of others gives you a license to rant. So to you there is a big "we" in this. Garrett Hardin, who wrote TheTragedy of the Commons (which nearly all serious biologists would know) points out that all problems are local. The universal "we" is useless in science. It's like saying your nose failed to warn your toe in the dark before you stubbed it.

Q. Do you think our behaviors will lead us to a better enivironment? I have heard many different scenerios by different groups (NASA, NOAA, Greenpeace to name a few) and nobody is predicting that we are making anything better.
A. This year, I have been trying to grow trees in a creekside habitat. I've been making TV films and art about our local habitat. What have you been doing -- driling holes in the heads of chimps? That's what some biologists do. And all you've told us is you're a biologist.
I posted a link on this forum to a quote from NASA's Earth Observing Handbook predicting calamities looming in our environment. Nobody responded.

I have not jabbed at you that personally.

"Jabbed" must be a techical term.
