Evil

Bird 'flu 2

I wonder if it's worth making something clear.

I don't really want people to die, I empathise too much with the victims and their families for a start. It's why I can't watch the news, I just get really depressed at the waste of life and potential. And hell, I don't want to die, either.

But at this rate it's the only way we're going to be able to have a liveable environment for our grandkids. The human race is expanding too fast with too little regard for their eco-system and the limited resources around them. The thing is, the damage is not only done, it has momentum. It'll take decades for that to slow down if not stop, even if we all changed our ways from tomorrow.

And the changes to rectify this happen at a snail's pace. Collapse )
I'd love to hear from people with better solutions that can be as easily achieved.
