[SMH] Great reef catastrophe ; Half of great barrier reef now gone - Page 3

post #21 of 71
The solution to all the worlds problems become quite clear when you understand the root cause of it all.. Over Population of Homo Sapiens.

The more people there is, the more natural resources we need and the more waste we produce, we consume and waste faster then the earth can reproduce and decompose. So far our solution to this is to genetically modify organisms to meet our needs.. but that in it's self has it's toll on the ecosystem.

Save the planet, don't have too many babies lol.

So now all countries need to put a limit on procreation. 2 kids maximum per family.

I actually wouldn't have a problem with that thumb.gif

Just weird to see some of these families on tv with 6, 8, 10, 12, 16!?! kids, it's just... not right.

I would have a problem with that. It is nice to think of every country being a "first world" country where we have good health care and a means of production that doesn't require a huge family but not every country is as well off as others. My family history of my dad's side was full of large hard working families. Due to discrimination and other such problem a large family was require back then. My dad only had me and so far I only have one and I never plan to have anywhere near 6 nor do I need to.

That we KNOW of.

We haven't even scratched the surface of most of the surface of our own planet (the bottom of our own oceans) let alone started scientifically cataloging information until "relatively" recently. So there really is no way to know.

Again, not an excuse to muck up the joint however.

Have they? Or perhaps they're much better documented now than they were 100+ years ago and it would appear that way on the surface. Many studies are not valid due to the limited range of recorded observations we possess. The Earth operates on a scale that vastly exceeds human record keeping and our ability to make cause-and-effect conclusions is often quite minimal. That's as deep as I'll go into the subject, though, and I'll let other, more involved individuals decide what to do, if anything, about the reef tongue.gif

This is very well said and representative of the 'climate' debate. smile.gif

I predicted this would all happen by '05, but I was off by a solid 7 years. Still makes you wonder how people can just blatantly ignore facts when slapped in front of their faces.

The only sure thing is that we have an extremely limited idea of how to predict or honestly interpret climate on a planetary scale.
