It seems the number of people keeps going up and up and the numbers of others keep going down every day, except for the domesticated animals whose numbers are also sadly running amok. It always comes down to people in the end. It is not God who will be doing anything, it is people who mad ethis mess and it is people who will have to fix it and soon.

Yes, I would have probably kept quiet about the actual numbers too, or explained them with more historic background, assuming that in the beginning of the previous century there was maybe even double this number? The colony at the start of the video is of macaroni penguins... (checked for that name, and it derives from a 'show-off person' called a Mac(c)aroni in the mid of the 18th century, I learn something new everyday ;-))
