If the humans lived much longer than they do, would they be more concerned about their impact on the planet? Would they be more inclined to preserve world resources rather than deplete them, or would they still take what they can and give nothing back?

Apart from not answering my question, you've introduced an entirely new topic! There's nowhere else like earth as far as we know to support life in all its rich diversity. Humans may never find a better world than this and the distances are too vast!
Stells your comment here and the answer made me kind of wake up. Longevity seems not the issue as I am very committed to conservation.
But my much younger children are double that. (well except my oldest) Interesting quirk.
I did answer your question from an elevated perspective. If I lived a million years I would not care for this cesspool of a planet. Please watch a video of a pride of Lions eating an antelope alive, and witness the "rich diversity" of the food chain.
So what would be your ideal planet? One where everyone and everything was vegan? I posted a question on this subject:
I will check the link. My ideal is self-sustaining energy or directly from the sun. Vegan is not acceptable since a plant must still be killed and transformed. Furthermore, that sort of processing still creates human waste, which is disgusting!
For some, being born is a detriment to human kind. The best they can do for humanity is to die before replicating themselves, and to escape the wheel of life so that they may never return.
Thanks for your detailed reply but you haven't answered my question! You're obviously a person who cares about the environment but I'm afraid the ones who don't care are destroying it. You and others who do care are unfortunately in the minority.
