The End of Natural Resources

The scale of natural resource mining is growing larger and larger. An open-pit mine that digs into the ground is like erecting a pyramid upside down, and the largest mines on Earth have even become visible from outer space. After evicting residents to swallow the village and digging up the minerals, the ecosystem is destroyed and underground water is polluted, making it a place where life can never inhabit again.
Human greed, which even requires things that have nothing to do with survival, encourages the exploitation of various biological resources. Elephants, rhinoceros, sharks, and dolphins are becoming pointlessly extinct to make ornaments and health foods that have not been proven effective. Penguins in Antarctica, which are suffering from climate change, are losing population day by day as humans are sweeping their prey, krill. Do we really need all these resources? Or are we taking it for granted as they are just there, and being addicted to this endless exploitation? This section is a collection of reflective films that look through the demise of resources.
