“Behold, the Lord hath created the earth that it should be inhabited; and he hath created his children that they should possess it.” —1 Nephi 17:36
“LDS doctrine is clear: all humankind are stewards over this earth and its bounty—not owners—and will be accountable to God for what we do with regard to His creation. As stewards over the earth and all life thereon, we are to gratefully make use of that which the Lord has provided, avoid wasting life and resources and use the bounty of the earth to care for the poor.” —Elder Marcus B. Nash
