Personally I'm on the fence about global warming. Too many people are saying that it's happening, and too many people are saying that it isn't
happening. And I get tired or trying to believe one group of people.
Although I will say that us humans are treating our planet like our personal garbage can. We consume everything we can, with little regard as to how
much we're actually taking. And not everything on this planet will be in an endless supply. We really need to devise a system that accounts for our
planet. We need to make sure a certain resource doesn't run out, we need to make sure we are doing everything we can not to pollute our environment,
and so on.
And as far as population goes, humanity can't keep reproducing at the rate we are now. The planet just won't be able to handle it eventually. As of
right now, there is roughly 7 billion people on earth. Imagine our planet with 14 billion people, then multiple that by 2 over and over again. We just
can't afford to end up with billions of people. And over population would be a very simple to take care of. All you have to do is stop reproducing.
Or at least stop doing it so much. I understand people want kids, but only have one, maybe two. If you have two, then they will replace you and your
spouse once you die, so you end up with an eve amount of people. There will be no growth.
The solutions to pollution, over population, and so on really aren't very difficult to overcome. Sure it'll take quite a bit of work, but it can
surely be done. It'll ultimately make life on this planet better. I just don't understand why our world is so set in it's way. I honestly think our
world is insane at the moment. We just keep doing the same thing over and over again, and expect things to change, or be better. It's complete
madness. And I really hope people snap out of it and realize we're spiraling out of control. Sometimes I think we're doomed. But then again, we've
come all this way, I'm sure we'll be able to stick it out for much longer.
