Animals die mostly because we take their water, plants and space. You cant really blame anyone but ourselves for that, those you would call innocent humans.
Is having more people really more important then the biodiversity?
The pollution produced by the current population is murdering every ecosystem imaginable. Oceans are dying, coral reefs are dying, rivers are dying and rainforest's are dying. If the human population were small compared to the total carrying capacity, we shouldn't see the natural ecosystems dying all around us.
To support life, people need far more land mass on the planet than their physical bodies occupy.
Given that all these things are finite -- and therefore not unlimited -- the global population that depends on these things for sustenance must obviously be finite as well. Anyone who argues that the human population can be "unlimited" even while depending on finite resources is being ridiculous.
Clearly, by all foundations of logic, there is a limited "carrying capacity" of the planet, meaning there is a finite number of human beings who can be supported by the biosphere.
If that were true, then the current population would need to be living in harmony with the planet, with an excess buffer of fresh water, food, topsoil, ocean life, watershed areas and so on. Today, we are as far away from living in harmony as it possibly can get...
Over 70 % of Indias population lives with under 2 usd per day. Sure they can afford food and water, but is that a life worth living?
To say we need to get rid of the ptb is to say we need to get rid of capitalism and what do we replace it with? Communism?
WE live in the here and now and as it is Humans are a cancer. Sure you like to think we are not if we get rid of this and replace it with that but thats not how it is ,is it? Wake up and smell the coffee......
So equality and ethics, good abundance principles would solve increasing growth amongst third world and theocracies.
However, the only problems with earth have to do with PTB mismanagement teams abuse of humanity, nature and resources and not bringing out the real tech! So shame on them. They also love to cast the blame to those they try to enslave. To abuse the world, be enriched by their corrupt practices, yet blame the powerless. Its their satanic ego talking. Humans, miserable humans......We're way above them. Being evil and corrupt doesnt make us toddler, no no, it makes up so sophisticated and grown up!!!
