There's enough food on the planet to feed everyone. There are enough doctors to treat all the sick. We have the resources to house everyone and all the stray dogs and cats, too. Without sarcasm, with no cynicism, I ask why we continue down this road.
Somehow we allow disagreements about religions and politics, ethics and greed to keep children starving. We have decided that it is only fair to let the folks who control most of the green paper to decide who gets to keep the green paper. We cede to them the right to deflower the planet and to declare wars to protect their interests.
The list of extinctions projected are mostly due to human activity. Maybe it's only fair that we make the list. We always need new heroes.
