Living Planet Report 2016

Overpopulation is the key to virtually every ill facing the human race today. Growing up I heard the issue discussed on a regular basis, but today it is rarely mentioned in the corporate media. The captains of industry (sociopathic Capitalist predators) have purchased the majority of our media and put in place a mechanism of indoctrination that has prevented us from evolving. This sadistic system is based on greed, fear and manipulation of others. Basically, the dogma of our state religion teaches (preaches?) that nothing matters more than collecting as much wealth and as many possessions as possible and that whatever it takes to accomplish this is acceptable.

Some day we will learn that this is all an illusion, but until then, the sane in society must try to teach those caught up in this despicable echo chamber of self-centered insanity the inherent suicidal tendencies in this.

“This we know: The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand of it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” – attributed to Chief Si’ahl (Seattle, in English) in a letter to the U.S. president in the 185os.

GR: The Living Planet Index, which measures abundance levels of 14,152 monitored populations of 3,706 vertebrate species, continues to show a downward trend. On average, monitored species declined by 58% between 1970 and 2012.  The report ties the decline to humans and human population growth.  Authors of the report struggle to find optimism to share, but they do not directly deal with population. Unless we begin to cut our population, the continuing loss of wildlife is inevitable.

“The Living Planet Report documents the state of the planet—including biodiversity, ecosystems, and demand on natural resources—and what it means for humans and wildlife. Published by WWF every two years, the report brings together a variety of research to provide a comprehensive view of the health of the earth.

  1. In my view capitalism is the problem, not overpopulation. Reducing the population isn’t going to stop the greedy billionaires from destroying the planet.

  2. For all intents and purposes, they are the same thing. Capitalism requires constant growth – spending, the amount of plundered resources and of population. Yes, Capitalism is definitely the problem. That’s why I mentioned the indoctrination by Capitalist pigs. Capitalism puts a price tag on everything. When they commoditize information it spreads ignorance, reducing awareness of what matters in life.

    We need to eliminate Capitalism and reduce population in order to reduce the destruction of habitat. only a balance with nature will allow a peaceful existence.
