Seriously, think of the fields you used to play in that are now housing developments or the Amazon rain forest depletion, etc. Dry land is a VERY finite resource and until the population is controlled or decreased somehow, pollution and carbon in the atm. will continue to increase no matter what all the greenies propose. If this continues, in a 100 years the Earth will be unrecognizable...

:-) Sure it will, to those which live there. Consider what a person from 100 years ago would think of the Earth NOW. :-)
On the other hand over population is a real problem. The Covid "scare" didn't do much to control it. :-)
The book "The Stand" that some one here mentioned and I got from the library last Sat and am about half way through , has the right solution to it. :-)

HIV did not ,Covid did not wonder what the next viral issue will be to try to lower the population of the earth . But think of the effect of a 25% drop in population would do to the financial stability of the world .

When I see or hear conversations of this nature I can’t help to be reminded of our values.

I have little argument that there are too many people, however I believe too many of them have bought into the values that corporations have been feeding us for several decades. There will come a time when we will have to choose what is important to us. Will it be a healthy environment and control of our lives OR values like speed, image, convenience, comfort and credit score. It seems we can’t have our cake and eat it too.

Forums like this that promote “do it yourself” philosophy offer a bit of hope but I’m not holding my breath. There seems to be too many carrots that are distracting people from realizing the part they have played that got us to where we are today. From what I hear there are “bigger and better” carrots coming soon.

The climate is changing. We can’t stop it. We have to adapt to survive.

Quit trying to plug the unstoppable leak and learn to float.

WTF could we possibly do to re-freeze the North Pole?***

And Antarctica is going steadily.

Look at the volcanos going right now. Electric cars and bicycles won’t fix that, and there is a good chance it will get worse.

***Nuclear Winter, But pray long and hard that we don’t resort to that.

100 is the average of a population.

Kill the sub-100s and you have a new median. (Plus everybody instantly has twice as much stuff but ignore that for now.)

Then someone will argue that it worked really well and we should do it again.

Eventually you’re left with two people arguing over which one is smarter and therefore has the right to survive.
