Too many people. 1 child per couple, should be the norm. The problem is making that happen.

Buried in snow here... again. Has the 'carbon' stopped working or summat? Please don't give me the old 'confusing weather with climate' drivel - I know more than you ever will. You've all fallen for it hook, line and sinker.

Climate Change is never mentioned in December. That is because we buy a load of rubbish we don't need, including paper and card. Then in the New Year we send it off to another country and tell everyone we got emissions down. Food Corporations and financial institutions have far too much power. They want everyone in a circle of debt, including electric cars, change of diet, purely for profit.

There's a great read called "Factfulness" btw - you'll realise that things aren't quite as dark on the population front as they seem, despite the current increase :)

Ultimately during mass extinctions the most vulnerable are the more complex species that require layers upon layers of other species to support them. We are hence sowing the seeds of our extinction and it may well be is that coronavirus is just the start of that trend.

Ban Soya and Palm Oil in all imported goods. Ban any food which come from more than a 1000 miles away.
Utterly clueless.
Palm oil uses less resources & land to produce the same amount of oils & fats as the alternatives.

The only issue is it being planted as a mono-crop. This needs to change to maintain biodiversity.

Even Wikipedia will be a useful starting point for you.

We should protect nature forvthe sake of nature not for the benefits it brings to humanity, it is not their to serve us. Also u.k needs to rewild its unused farmland and in doing so restore the natural order with the reintroduction of apex predators so ecosystems can function as they have evolved to do not as we desire them too.
