I hate the Earth. It eats all humans. Damn omnivore planets.
BAN THE EARTH!
Jokes aside the real problem is too many humans. Sure not too many for how much land is on the planet, but too many when it comes to sustainable foods
and keeping the environment in tact.
I for one am not going to be surprised when we start seeing more coronavirus' getting out and about, whether human made or natural. World is generally
good at keeping most animals in check, sadly we've learned to battle it. But end of the day nature will win.
But yes, I foresee a plague of some kind in the near future. With countries now getting into 300 million+ populations and some getting in to the
billions something has to give.
At the rate we're going regardless of if you're a meat eater or a vegetarian, humanity is gonna take a wallop be it from disease or from destroying
our eco system to keep up with the demand for beef and avocados.
To think, many of the worlds problems could be fixed with a box of condoms. But of course, telling people they should cut down on the breeding never
goes well because 'mah rights'.
We're too selfish a creature. Always looking out for ourselves instead of looking out for everybody and the planet.
That's the real problem. People can only see what is right in front of them, and even then they often choose to ignore it.
Making sure you have an overloaded plate and eating more food than you need for cheap at some diner is much more important than ensuring
sustainability for the entire species for many in certain nations I guess.
'Man Vs. Food' should be a cautionary ecological tale. It's that kind of eating you see that is at the root of the problem, as well as foods becoming
trends and fads. Oh everyone else is eating Avocados? I will too! (not because I want to but because everyone else is.)
We've become too accustomed to getting what we want when we want it. Foods never out of season now. Not when you can export it in from some 3rd world
producer when winter hits.....
Maybe we should just suck it up and eat other things when our favorites are out of season. We'd probably appreciate them more when they came back on
the shelves the following year that's for sure.
But we won't. Because me me me me me. I want it and I want it now.
The spoiled bratty child we westerners have become hey?
