David Attenborough: Extinction
Anyone watch it? To summarise: Large animals becoming extinct at an alarming rate (graph shown) due to deforestation. This means smaller animals are not being preyed on and population booming. And in turn smaller animals spreading out and causing ......yes you got it.....pandemics, which are likely to be a regular feature of our future on earth.
But not only small animals, human beings are increasing at an alarming rate so it seems to me this is nature's way of cutting us down to size.
'Save the environment' everyone shouts, stop driving gas guzzlers, eat less meat, use less energy, ban plastic and so on. All well and good but no one is brave enough to tell us to do the one thing that can save the planet.........have less children!
The world's population has doubled in the last 50 years, so how long before it doubles again, and again, and again. Standing room only and no resources left for our grandchildren. Why are world governments not encouraging people to have less children before it gets to a stage of forcing the issue? Yes it's a human right but rights carry responsibility and no one needs loads of kids. This disaster is of our own making and the solution is in our hands because with less people there will be less gas guzzling, less meat eaten, less plastic and energy used.
Why are we ignoring the obvious solution?????
