Christine ChristieIs this sentence correct:

No. It contrasts defending nature with feeling bad that it is ending, or seems to. The English is a bit askew. The first phrase is natural as "As much of a defender of nature as I am, …", but I think you meant "Being the defender of nature that I am". The salvation thing is OK.

Christine ChristieAs much of a defender of nature that I am, it's always been hard for me that we are approaching the point when there will no longer be any salvation for Earth, and all life will come to extinction.

Correct. However, it may not mean what you intend. The 'as much of' phrasing suggests 'although', which in turn suggests contrast. But I don't think you mean "Although I defend nature, it's hard for me ...". I'd use "Being" as suggested in another post in this thread. That means something more like "Because I defend nature, it's hard for me ..."

Another version, for your comparison:

Being the defender of nature that I am, I've always found it hard to come to terms with the fact that we are approaching the point where the earth can no longer be saved, and all life will come to an end.
