Therefore, we need to think about tomorrow with respect to every action that we take in the environment and in this case we can say that sustainable development requires slower population growth. With this in mind, we need to be educated through our cultures about the impact we caused to the environment as we continue to reproduce. The challenge of environmental ethics has led to the attempt to apply traditional ethical theories, including consequentialism, deontology, and virtue ethics, to support contemporary environmental concerns; the preservation of biodiversity as an ethical goal; the broader concerns of some thinkers with wilderness, the built environment and the politics of poverty; the ethics of sustainability and climate change, and some directions for possible future developments of the discipline [ CITATION And15 \l 1033 ]. With this multi-dimensional approach one can see that it is more of a cultural issue to think of it from its origin. We have grown to see our parents have children, build houses, buy cars cultivate farmlands, explore timber and many other aspects.
Environmental ethics refers to the relationship that humans share with the natural world (Buzzle, 2011), it involves people extending ethics to the natural environment through the exercise of self-discipline (Nash, 1989). Herein the essay will give examples of anthropocentrism and non-anthropocentrism as forms of environmental ethics, criticizing anthropocentrism in contrast with a defence of non- anthropocentrism precedents. Anthropocentrism also referred to as human-centeredness, is an individualistic approach, a concept stating that humans are more valuable, and the environment is only useful for sustaining the lives of human beings (MacKinnon, 2007).

According to the text, Albee is more in favor of George’s thought rather than Nick’s thought of putting science and technology supremacy. Though Albee is considered as a social critic, his criticism on natural ecology is also powerful and sharp as he uses George as spokesman to express his ecological view. In this play, his ecological holism is well presented in his attacking toward consequences caused by rapid scientific and technological development and the wholeness of human nature should be maintained since human is also a part of nature. Furthermore, the conflict between science and technology and humanity will result in multidimensional imbalance in natural, social and spiritual
