We are all seeing or reading about what is happening to our climate. Too frequently now we are experiencing extremes in weather events or subtle problems with our ability to grow things. Maybe one day too the pandemic will show a relationship to these events. What it does show that the mighty supremacy of humans is reaching an end and we must backtrack in understanding that we can’t just go on the way we have been and expect to get away with it.
This post will be one of few words. I write to you today questioning why with the proliferation of words expolaining what we have to do to stop the world self destroying. The simple answer is that climate change cannot be rectified just by changing the way we live. Most of the rhetoric surrounding these words could be mainly applied to the wealthy nations. The poorer ones naturally would like to be living the same way as us and will do so if given the opportunity.
I maintain that climate change is a derivative of the population explosion. It is simply a matter of too many people on this earth. So many so that all other life species including both animals and plants are being threatened. Simply stated there are at least 3-4 billion too many people on this earth for us to remain sustainable.
We need to think on this and come up with measures that encourage smaller families . the solutions are not easy but the alternative is worse. Besides living in an unsustainable world where extreme measures are placed on our soils and water resources we end up with a increasing number of violence between all races, creeds etc clamoring to survive in this world.
