I have watched wildlife change in some weird ways, in my area. Notably the amazing Chinese carp in the Mississippi that can jump twenty feet and the snakehead fish, also the zebra mussel and a manatee that swam 700 miles to Memphis. I could go on and on, maybe someday they will learn, probably after it's too late.

> .."ecological footprint" of human activity was 50% higher than the capacity of the Earth..
actually (accrdinmg tlo MY estimates) much much higher; depending hugely upon
- whether we want to have tigers around, in 2050, in 2100, maybe even longer
and/or polar-baers
and/or salmon
and or wanna have a planet where poisons (like dioxin, PCB, Hg, ...) get less every year
... or even a planet where the ('exploitable' amount of given non-renewable 'resource' divided by annual consumption(+waste) ) increases
and/or the Wild grows
and/or deserts shrink
