Over just a dozen or so generations the birds who do not eat plastic or are better suited to processing it will dominate the gene pool. Life advances
by means of the most brutal struggle friend. I am certain similar scenarios have played out millions of times in the Earth's history. Ask yourself how
birds know instinctually not to eat poison plants or bugs etc...
P.S. The only good whale is a dead one! We must master these natural systems not remain dependent upon the fragile and doomed natural order. If
species do not serve a need and they give way, then that's what zoos are for! The whole of the planet should be used for the single purpose of
supporting human life! Mankind should strive for the technology to completely manage our oceans, atmosphere etc... A population so large that is
forces mankind to new worlds should be our goal!
The technology required to support 500 billion humans would see the Earth completely managed, and would require mankind to seek resources from other
worlds thereby eliminating the single point failure that is Mother Earth. It is the only path to long term survival for our species.
Depopulation is an idiots dream! Try as you might the notion of humans hurting planet Earth is entirely fictional. There are countless events in
Earth’s history that make the entire history of human impact seem trivial.
One thing is certain for this species of bird and that is exstinction will find them. It has nothing to do with humans. They are doomed in the long
term, unless by some miracle mankind endures and they survive in a zoo or similar.
That sir is da troof, and is common sense! Properly managed oceans can both feed and fuel a population of a trillion+. If you divided the oceans
equally, every Human on the planet would have 6 billion gallons+!
It is not politically correct to say, but the point is Mankind can endure if they choose to do so.. The Earth is indeed bigger than you and I, but its
natural systems and weaker life forms etc.. should not be viewed as more important than the existence of our own species.
