It’s the job of every Jewish person to do whatever you have to do, of course using common sense methods, to help save every aspect of our environment that G d created for all mankind and all other creatures. G d was so gracious to create such an awesome environment full of beauty, I can’t conceive why any person would want to destroy such a gift. If all of us continue on beholding such little respect for what keeps all of us alive, in
the end we only have ourselves to blame. Reply

I liked this, but it didn't seem to be much about Kabbalah. If Rabbi Barber wants share some deep Kabbalah about the environment, he should give a talk on Igeret Hakodesh 20. Reply
