Why is money more important than the planet’s welfare?

Jenny Webster, 19

My poem explores the ludicrity of putting wealth over the wellbeing of our planet. Many huge companies (particularly in the fossil fuel, food and logging industries) are doing nothing to help work against climate change, instead continuing to destroy the planet and the life it holds. They are effectively leaving behind a mess for the younger generations to suffer through and clean up, and all for the sake of living with more money than they can spend.
