Offbeat  (tags: environment, population, greed, ignorance, humans, ethics )

- 1700 days ago -
In October of 2011, the 7th billion human being will land on this planet. From that threshold, humans will continue multiplying by 1.0 billion every 13 years to reach more than 10 billion within 39 years at the mid century. The ramifications stagger

At the same time refusing to acknowledge that the current population alone is destroying the planet.

we talk about the threat of global warming, climate change, the carbon footprint, etc and wee we should. however NO ONE talks about the major cause of all of it... the overwhelming parasite that is the human race. IMHO of course

It's all the more alarming because, as Frans and others have mentioned, Nature will step in when the numbers get out of control and kill off thousands with diseases and catastrophes, not to mention populations killing one another with wars and terrorism.

This is a great article, something to really think about it.
Thank you for posting this article, before having children now we need to be aware of what we are leaving for them, as it is right now we are eliminating everything for our convenience including all animals. Humanity need to weak up, it is kind of late already, but not impossible to fix, as long as we take the necessary steps.

When are people going to wake up to this crisis and admit populations need to be limited?! Thoughtless breeders mindlessly churn out child after child after child, and idiotic western governments encourage them by paying them benefits for each child, regardless of whether they are working or not. In the UK parents are granted child benefit and child tax credit for every child: It encourages and rewards irresponsible breeding and the country simply cannot afford these payments. Don't even get me started on the environmental damage overpopulation causes....
