It is only a matter of time folks! Presently the human population is increasing by 880 million per year all of which require resources to just stay alive.As resource rich areas become depleted we will have to move into lesser rich areas and even our nature reserves, National Parks and even our nature reserves like The Great Barrier Reef. It's a sad thought but what else can we do? God created this earth for man to exploit and claim dominion over, re: Genesis! What hope is there? Religious beliefs will destroy the planet! Humans are the most important species! Who decided that????
