I think as much as we want to have some enemy species that comes along and wantonly squanders the planet's resources, life and future,
I think it is ourselves that is the mindless reproducing, destructive species that is wrecking havoc on this planet.
Killing off numerous other species,
fishing the oceans till everything is extinct, and we can't even feed ourselves.
Dumping toxic levels of industrial waste into the air land and water that goes down stream making tuna loaded with mercury.
denuding the evergreen forests to muddy environmental disasters killing off salmon spawning ground, yet another species we depend on.
The species that is most likely to cause humanity to become extinct, is humanity.
We are the ones over-reproducing and then demanding lifestyles that using current technologies, the planet simply cannot support.
We are so focused on right this instant satisfaction, that we have no mind or thought about sustainability.
Heard the expression given to the young, don't poop where you eat,
funny thing but i guess we are not that smart.
We fart where we breathe, pee where we drink, and poop where we eat.
We are an exceptional species,
Exceptionallly stupid species that is.
