History and the environment are tied together.

Does history shape the environment or does the environment shape history? I believe that both perspectives are true.

Therefore, be careful with the decisions you make and be aware of the impact of your actions.

If the affairs of humans could be shaped, can we reduce the impact on the environment?

Seen as a whole, or even as the same thing, could one say that history is the environment? In a way, the environment does manage to record the effects of our actions. If that is the case, then why wouldn't people be more concerned about how they interact with others and their surroundings? Would you have the same perspective if you were struggling to survive?
