I agree with Eric Pianka, that people and the ecological balance on earth would all be better off with 10% of the present population.
quinton[/i]]Expanding the human population without sacrificing the ancient processes on earth that occurred long before humans is like saying that humans are independent of their ecosystem which is ridiculous.
quinton[/i]]Humans are part of this ecosystem. Everything is connected. Humans have the power to destroy the ecosystem, making it uninhabitable for other species.
quinton[/i]]Humans should take caution to stop expanding before they end up diminishing the natural richness of the biosphere beyond repair.
