8 BILLION HUMANS ARE CONTINUING TO CAUSE THE EXTINCTIONOF ALL OTHER LIFE
But instead of implementing zero population growth we blame cats
Since the 16th century, humans have driven at least 680 vertebrate species to extinction.
Our cultural norms and attitudes cause us to destroy trees insects and creatures we label as vermin
Because we think they are not sentient
The platypus is on the verge of extinction
This heritage bushland was set alight:
Soon after it was real estate development:
Real Estate companies pay the fines associated with destroying heritage bush land because they make heaps more money than the fine.
In this case they were not fined at all because it was supposedly an accident.
When I was young I believed that a few people could make a difference and from a sociological point of view the more people that want something to change the more likely the change will happen.
But I have learned over the years that multinationals rule the world and humans believe that they are the only species that matters and the only species that has feelings ☹
Our consumer society
and the industrial revolution have done so much damage:
along with this cultural attitude that only humans matter.
I wont kill anything:
I get upset when insects die.
I thank the wind, the rain and the vegetables etc that I eat:
One Christian woman patronisingly told me I should be thanking god (back in the days when didn’t have the self confidence to defend myself)
I believe everything that exists has a consciousness and deserves respect.
Population control as in zero population growth is essential.
Humans make up 99 percent of the of the world population.
Hence only one percent is wildlife.
When I wrote and published my sci fi short story April 2017 the human population was 7.4 billion
It is now almost 8 billion.
Kungfutz say: “Better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness.”
Please join in:
enjoy your day
and respect non humans
I wrote and published this sci fi short story a few years ago (under a different title) when the human population was only 7.4 billion:
