The planet is dying faster than we thought

Consider that our planet is physically changing, and we, as well as other species, especially complex species, are in the process of evolutionary change, and in some situations headed for extinction. It would seem that the increasing human population is the driver of most of these changes. Humans aren't going to voluntarily limit reproduction, restrict resource uses and cease oppressing one another. It's genetic in my opinion. Consequently, contemplating the long term future is unpleasant which may be why nations/peoples are reluctant to agree on remedial actions without getting some advantage. Nothing new in that.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
They have been screaming about the dangers of overpopulation for a century now.
40 years ago writers an scientists predicted we would be slowly starving now with the population spiraling out of control.
We are not starving and the world’s population growth is projected to end naturally in the not too distant future.
Yes we have work to do but quit with the constantly changing predictions of disaster.

The disappearance of the insects is down right creepy. The corporate controlled science on this planet does not seem concerned. Will the people who are prospering by producing the chemicals largely responsible for the declining insect populations please raise your hands?

It would seem that this part of the problem is the result of only a few people’s actions.

How many poor people own newspapers?

This point regarding insects should be of concern to us all. Bees are the most publicly recognized to be impacted and that should concern us all.

Aside from politics, it seems the notion of being responsible stewards of our environment is lacking by many. Facts seem to matter little to many. If you can't breathe clean air, drink safe water, and feed yourself, having money in your pocket serves no purpose.

It's not just the insects,. It's the global temperature rise, the carbon dioxide increase, the frogs, the birds, the low order sea life, sundry plants, the Amazon rain forest, the Artic, wild land development, poaching, as well as other bio-systems which as they diminish or go extinct push the needed resources for human survival to a "tipping point". Whether the exponential grown in the world's human population, (the driver of 90+% of the deleterious effects in the above list), will abate, level off, or reverse in 30 or so years I do not know, (and I don't think so). But given the Earth's 3.5BY history of life, the probability is that Nature and Evolution will do what its always done. And H. Sapiens will have done all the work despite our ability to predict and visualize. Given the current global pandemic as a foreshadowing, don't relish the future post 2050ce.

By destroying Amazon forest, we are destroying a major converter of converting carbon dioxide to oxygen. This is literally suicide.
Increasing consumers of oxygen. Decreasing producers of oxygen. Q.E.D.
