Guest Guest Posted February 15, 2016 Report Share Posted February 15, 2016 Species are going extinct at a rate 1,000 times faster than the natural rate over the past 65 million years. An area of forests the size of West Virginia is being lost every year, since 2000. Even in the United States, 15-20% of the population lives in poverty, which is far less than the rate in many other parts of the world. The world's population is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. We are killing ourselves. This isn't coming from some leftie. It's coming from Forbes magazine, a pro-business publication. Even business leaders are starting to realize that they have no future unless we start to address these problems. And of course, if any of the usual cast of idiots responds to this, it will be the usual fact-free snot-nosed, juvenile remark that completely ignores the facts. They can do that for now. But before long, we're all going to be looking at this every day, and all the time, because it's going to be right at our front door - every one of us. Pay now or pay more later. A reasonable and responsible person says let's take action now, so we can avoid the catastrophe that IS coming our way if we do not act to prevent it.
