To be honest, the Forsaken lands are thriving. Maybe not in the way you'd expect, since you can't really live there easily as a non-forsaken, but they are thriving with fungal growth and insect live, both of which are high in theme with the Earthmother. As for the Blood Elves, they haven't been sucking the life from things since they turned to the light, and are now much more about restoring the beauty and life to their homeland even if through arcane arts. With the recent turn to the light by the Tauren, they have much more reason to calmly approach the situation with the Blood Elves.As for the goblins.. Short sighted? My friend, short sighted doesn't make profit. Goblins are amoral, fiendish, thrifty, and devious. But short sighted is never something you can afford to be, or you end up a sapper with a career of about an hour. Most of that time spent fitting yourself with a bomb. The shamanism of the goblins is strange and unusual to the tauren, but they still make deals with the elemental spirits and draw upon their strength. They keep them in check and promote a balance that while admittedly is a balance in favor of a profit margin to the shaman, keeps fire from destroying all the greenery, keeps water from flooding all it touches, keeps air from eroding the land, and keeps the earth from simply swallowing up the living. The tauren themselves have geologists, are not against the mining and excavation of the earth in moderation, because if you do it right you can send a druid in later to regrow stuff. So while the goblins are beyond the limits of the tauren, their ways are approachable and can be reasoned with for the sake of their shared arts. And while it may look to us like they're simply despoiling the land, that wouldn't make profit. There's a long term plan there, step one destroy, step two restore. Sell the sucker his minerals one day, then turn around and sell him a nice little garden when he gets tired of the minerals.
