The biggest threat to Earth's environment is not even part of the debate and is studiously ignored by almost 100% of the journalists and "environmental activists"
in the world. That thing is the population bomb, which, according to the UN, is going to add between 2.5 and 5.2 Billion more people to Earth's population by the end of the century.
"""The United Nations (UN) recently released population projections based on data until 2012 and a Bayesian probabilistic methodology. Analysis of these data reveals that, contrary to previous literature, the world population is unlikely to stop growing this century. There is an 80% probability that world population, now 7.2 billion people, will increase to between 9.6 billion and 12.3 billion in 2100. This uncertainty is much smaller than the range from the traditional UN high and low variants. Much of the increase is expected to happen in Africa, in part due to higher fertility rates and a recent slowdown in the pace of fertility decline. Also, the ratio of working-age people to older people is likely to decline substantially in all countries, even those that currently have young populations."""
Yet, the subject is hardly mentioned in 'news' media. There is far more coverage of transgenderism and the latest movies than there is of the population threat. All the green ideas in the world will not save us from collapsing under the weight of another 2 to 5 Billion people.
Earth Day? Until the population threat becomes the #1 news item, concern for the environment is feel-goodism. #1 is being ignored due to wilful blindness. Several billion more people will steam-roll over 'the environment' and cause monumental problems and tragedy, and will kill any attempts at affecting the Earth's atmospheric gasses.
