    Yup, some people never learn. The very wealthy are often the worst this way as they're attitude is they will be all right. They have all the money and power, armies etc.
    Alas its a side human nature that hasn't been tamed.

    The world will continue but will be a very different place. I always said Soylent Green's vision of the world would come to pass

    I'd like to amend my previous post - there'll be no singing "I'd like to teach..." on the hilltops. All these prime locations will have been bought and built on by the very wealthy, and heavily fortified to keep us oiks out.

    We'll have the last laugh though, when there's no one left to deliver their groceries and mow their lawns

    I don't want to tell you what to believe, but there are significant reasons for accepting the trends. It's up to you whether you decide to accept the notion, based on the evidence. I'd prefer it though if people didn't deny the evidence.

    A very long while ago there was no ice anywhere, and the world was presumably hotter than it is now, but there were no people around then AFAIK.

    Re the protests, climbing onto tube trains in rush hour is just plain stupid.
    There also used to be a lot of scientific evidence to the contrary however this has mostly mysteriously vanished and scientists who deviate from the accepted wisdom are given no airtime by the media

    Yes and I ended up hanging off the minute hand.

    End of.

    But virtually no one wants to talk about it.

    People think they have the right to have children. We need to find a way to stop that on a global scale.
    Sadly I agree with you.

    However, Hans Rosling - Facfulness - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Factfulness.../dp/1473637465 presents a slightly more optimistic view, though it still ends up with several billion more people than we have now.

    I believe that others, such as David Attenborough, believe that for any sort of sustainability, the human population should be around 10 times smaller than it is now. I haven't checked for sure if that's correct. That's a lot of people to lose.

    Country wise, China and the USA are making things worse faster than nearly all the rest.

    Re contrariwise scientific evidence - yes - there is some - but not much. Most of the evidence is strong enough to support the notion that global warming is actually happening, and additionally most of the evidence is now strong enough to support the notion that much of this is caused by human activity - mostly, but not exclusively, fossil fuel burning.

    We are living in the anthropocene age.
