It's Earth Day! (Again!)
soon start declining.
And...I don't know? MAYBE?! Absolutely, it is possible. But also absolutely, none of us alive today will be here to see if a great depopulation era comes to pass. What we have to work with is the here and now, and the here and now makes it clear that we, as a species, are far from problem-free inhabitants of this earth.
Regardless of what may happen in the decades and centuries ahead, our numbers are currently still increasing, as are the pressures we are exerting on our environment and our limited resources. So today, regardless of where you may stand on the issue of the future, I extend a gentle reminder to stay in the present, and do what you're able to live the best life you can.
Be kind to your home base. It will almost undoubtedly outlast us...and if that's not enough to humble you this Earth Day, then consider that cockroaches, crocodiles, and countless other species probably will too.
