I don't understand why nobody talks about population control when talking about enviromental problems and solutions. It is clear that ecologically speaking we are a pest and no matter what we do about reducing emisions and polution, if we dont control our population we will become extinct... that is what I think anyway.
We're not taking the time to learn from the indiginous popualtions about their knowledge of the local environment. We think we know best, so we exploit. We move too fast and we do not take the time to see the connections in all things...we need to experience not to be always told. We must spend more time in nature and not behind walls.
Man's greatest environmental goal could be his/her ownself... if people don't care about themselves, they won't give as much attention to their environment and surroundings.
It must be understood that global warming is also a result of millions of individual actions, e.g. taking the car instead of public transport/walking, or "cheap" flights that are environmentally expensive. So our greatest environmental own goal is either not knowing or never considering the consequences of our actions.
1. Global warming 2. Water wasting 3. Toxics and pollution 4. Overfishing 5. Invasive species
Don't forget Nuclear Power
