In a basic response to the OP Title:
Human are virus! SAVE THE EARTH!
Consider the Laws of Nature. All living organisms have the biological capacity to resist & immunize themselves against viruses. It's a trait that's
been constantly evolving since the beginnings of life on this planet. Does anyone here actually think that, if we Humans are acting like a virus on
this Earth, that the Laws of Nature don't provide for any defense?
Wrong! Even looking at the various eco-niches that species live in, what happens in any
place that becomes overpopulated? Mother Nature thins
out the population until its numbers are reduced once again into "sustainable development." In short, letting Humans continue to overpopulate &
consume resources isn't going to "doom the planet." The planet was here long before us & (unless we wise up & come to an understanding of ourselves
within the environment) it'll be here long after we're gone...The Earth will recover, even if we don't!
In a nutshell, those extremists (call them "eco-terrorists," if you will) that shout "Save the Planet" while committing mass murder or mass
destruction of Human works are disseminating: What they really mean to say is that they want to save themselves
from the famine, disease &
massive die-offs of people when Mother Nature takes command.
Even though the government refused to sign the Kyoto Treaties years ago, they're still beginning to implement it in the USA...Have you heard about
the Carbon Tax that's currently under consideration? In short, they
understand what humans are doing to this planet & keep trying to find new
ways to profit from human misery.

I think the right to live plentifully and/or reproduced should be based on a decisive scale of MERIT.
Even a Meritocracy government will do the same profiting from human misery...Except that this form of government will give them the "authority" to
do some of the causing
of human misery by deciding who lives & who dies. In short, the same families of self-styled "elite" in our history
have always wanted to exert such controls over everyone else, even long before
overpopulation became a concern. Is that really any better than
trusting to the Laws of Nature (or hoping that we'll "grow up" fast enough to change our ways) to get it all sorted out?
