So true.. Blessed with such a beautiful world we've done little but abuse it and selfishly use it up.. I'm as guilty as the next person.

The world would probably be a better place if we hadn't arrived in the first place.

Of course, we don't know what would have replaced us.

It's easy to say that we are abusing the planet - and it is true. Bit more difficult to work out what to do about it. The big problem is the sheer number of us. As I have said before, when my father was born in 1903 there were slightly under one billion of us. Now there are over seven billion and there is no common sense expectation of the picture changing. Why should it? All species, not just us, have an inbuilt drive to reproduce.

Obviously more still, but it is surprising just how quick the losses in WW2 - I haven't checked WW1 - all 60 million, were made up. Must try and look it up again - I was amazed at just how quickly the population became greater than in 1939

Eventually like all 'overfull' entities, overload will result in catastrophe as finite resources are exhausted and the human race is culled by it's own proclivity to mindless excess.

I do wonder, from time to time, just how much of a population with which the planet can cope before every thing breaks down
