paradise never existed, and the earth has always been about adapting to and overcoming other life forms or conditions, whatever dies out is just too weak to adapt to whatever harsh conditions it was faced with or just unlucky.

we're here to live, not arrogantly try to save everything and sitting around, moping about how terribly wrong and guilty we are, citing statistics just to shame people and drag them down to become miserable too.

we need to stop this depression culture that is plaguing the west, before we do something really stupid that makes the situation worse in a foolish attempt to save everything.

Depends on ones idea of paradise I guess.

What's the awnser then? Hiring people like Scott pruit to deregulate EPA laws while getting tax payers to pay for $5000 office chairs and even more in other unimportant things?

Should we just ignore it all??

Let's just become like China. Who cares!



We could swear ourselves back into caves too, and it still wouldn't make a dent to balance out China and India and they'd likely just come here and repeat and there wouldn't be anything stone age level tech dwellers could do about it.

You realize most of the Pacific plastic comes from Asia, right?

No one is saying we need to be them, just that we can wring our hands, clutch our pearls and flagellate ourselves into the ground over guilt for things we're actually not doing and it won't matter one whit to those who are.

Let's not set aside the unseen, Fukushima, deadly Radiation which is quickly destroying the Pacific Ocean, and should be circulating in the whole South China Sea in the near future


see how out-of-sight leads to out-of-mind...that even ketsuko got caught up in the created/orchestrated "blind-spot"....
of the worst disaster in human history rendered aa a minor 'inconvenience'

I dunno. My grandfather told me how wild animal life had declined up till the 1970s. Through out the 1980s and the 1990s it increased notably, by my observation. Take the example of the Bald Eagle, it spread far into the East Coast where it was VERY rare 30-40 years ago.

Foxes and even Bobcats are common here now. Speaking strictly from a NorthEast USA perspective.

Nature has wiped out 99.9% of all species that have ever existed.

I don't think big momma considers us a threat.


We are killing it... used to be a Paradise here on Earth... now it's just brick, concrete, glass, tar and mortar!

If you live in a city yes. But most of the planent is still rural.
Even the states have wide open plains and great lakes.

What are you smoking? Cause it’s clouding your judgement.


Funny i thought the same thing sounds like he needs to move away from the cities. Where i live trees outnumber people by thousands to one. There may be about 10 houses within a mile of me probably less.

Humanity, Civilisation, industrial "progress", technological "Progress" etc

all these are contributing factors into the unavoidable ecocide we are in

I never said the Earth won't continue. It will continue, there just won't be anything 'living' on it, except insects!


Exactly. Like Neil Degrasse Tyson says

"This Earth will be around for a long, long time. But we won't be".
