Check out Dan’s favorite song about recycling! While this song does not delve into the issues involved with energy overconsumption (for it is a children’s song after all), it does tell us to use fossil fuels respectfully and keep in mind that we, along with the dinosaurs, are part of earth’s history.
Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day (Gen. 1:11).
