What is the point of saving the Earth? How did so many people become convinced that there is something wrong? Can anyone prove beyond belief and assumption that there is anything wrong or anything that needs saving? It seems like most people just believe assertions they heard from someone else or read about somewhere with very little proof behind any of them. Does this bother anyone?
It's man that has to be saved. The earth is OK man must be saved from himself. With disease at bey, we still have war, greed, prejudice.

No, it does not bother me! Like always the proof is in the pudding, and I do not think you have to go very far to find the proof, since it is all around us, and of course the facts speaks for it self. Take a very good look all around you, what do you see in our world today, and do you think we are in a place whereby we do need to save the earth? If your answer differs from the others that see a need to save the earth, then, by all means you can ignore it, and carry on with your life. But I do think that it would be wonderful, if we can do our part in saving mother earth, by going Green and keeping our environment clean!

someone must have looked to his right and then to his left and all he saw was conspicuous consumption. and for some reason began to think that a pattern was developing,

We are of the earth it is not ours.
Look at it as Oneness. We are not separate of the earth it IS us. And it too is living it's path with us. It is growing and learning with us. Everything is how it should be. Just as our lessons are needed for us to grow these lessons of the earth will teach it also. The earth could very well cleanse itself of some if not all of us.
The Earth IS a living breathing life form. Rocks grow, Volcanoes explode, plates shift. Earth evolves and now we affect it. The body knows how to heal itself. So does she.
I think there is a better chance we blow ourselves up than jacking up the Earth to the extent we can not inhabit it.

What is the point of saving the Earth?
-the same as trying to save (or destroy or create) anything, which I'd say is to try to control the duration and quality of experience.
How did so many people become convinced that there is something wrong?
-fear of change, or the belief they do not like where the change is going. Or maybe desire to believe their actions have consequence at all, even if it is "negative".
Can anyone prove beyond belief and assumption that there is anything wrong or anything that needs saving?
-no, these are subjective judgments that can always be countered with further subjective arguments.
It seems like most people just believe assertions they heard from someone else or read about somewhere with very little proof behind any of them. Does this bother anyone?
-Not most people, ALL people. It seems to be all we can do. A personality is always just a collection of stories... emptiness is form and form is emptiness (if you're into that one). There is no proof in anything. Every single word we know, we learned from somewhere. This doesn't bother me, it gives my greater flexibility in relating to temporal phenomena like beliefs and personalities. Understanding that everyone is conditioned and programed by their stories is understanding that they are insubstantial and already changing. Why would I be bothered that someone has subjective beliefs that are in opposition to my subjective beliefs?

I am not sure where you live or where you've spent most of your life. I am originally from the mediterranean region and have been to the lands/islands bordering it. The process of massive deforestation didn't happen over the past century or two, but from way before that. Our beautiful planet is a living organism and we can't go on like before. It is time to be a better care taker. As in all relationships, you give and you take.
Thank you, namaste

An emotional charge is the point. Humans do best when given a political idea alongside an emotional drive. That most of them don't understand the law of the conservation of energy doesn't matter one whit since emotion and politic require no independent thinking whatsoever.
Sometimes I bother myself with this issue, other times I see it as opportunity. Right now, it seems sweet and amusing.
