Why Can't We Understand Something So Simple?
It's simple. Straightforward as it can be. No elaborate theories needed. Just two facts, mathematical certainties.
Since 1970, the population of non-human animals species has declined by 68 percent.
Since 1970, the population of that other species, homo sapiens or humans, has more than doubled.
D'ya think they're connected somehow, one species skyrocketing in numbers while the rest of the species' populations plummet? Do you think that's just an incredible coincidence? Do you think any of this bodes well for that outlier species, homo sapiens?
When was the last time you heard your government talk about this? Never? What about the leader of your party of preference? Does this come up in their conversations? No? Isn't that curious?
A wall of silence is a wall of indifference and that leads to a wall of inaction.
We should be scared out of our wits at these two, oh so simple facts. We're not. We don't want to know.
