“I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting”

"I don’t want to protect the environment, I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on Twitter by Antonia Yiu on February 18, 2013.

“I don’t want to protect the environment; I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protection.~Ola Betiku” was posted on Twitter by Alireza Rastin on February 26, 2013. “I don’t want to protect the environment, I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting.  Ola Betiku” was posted on Twitter by Tid Bits and Wits on March 9, 2013. American illustrator Ola Betiku probably created the quote with this image.

The original quote ends “I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting,” but it is sometimes written as “I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protection.”

A world where the environment doesn’t need protecting. That sounds nice, doesn’t it?

6) I don’t want to protect the environment I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting.

22 July 2015, The Simcoe Reformer (Calgary, Alberta), “Here’s a switch, let’s keep things positive” by Keith Ashley, pg. A4:
There was a quotation that came my way the other day that made more sense to me than most of the jingles you get via e-mail. “I don’t want to protect the environment; I want to create a world where the environment doesn’t need protecting”. I could not find the author of this but it is a quote worth thinking about and a platform for every political party, federal or provincial.
