There's a new show on TV.
Terranova: another doom and gloom, end of the world scenario where the show start with a view on a polluted city, people with mask to breathe and a population control coops kidnapping the third kid of a family, because it's outlawed to have more than 2. The kids never saw an orange or clouds.. give me a break!
In the year 2149, the planet Earth is a disaster, and most of the plant and animal life has become extinct. Scientists can't reverse thedamage, but have found a way to travel back to prehistoric times to save the human race.
I am so tired of those shows where humans can only do bad things and the only solution is to go back and live like crazy, unlawful armed farmers.
For starter overpopulation is a myth.. see:
Secondly, we know that by bringing wealth and education to population, their growth rate stabilize.
Third, we know that better technology, cleaner power sources, gives us a cleaner air. The only task left for humanity is to move from coal power to nuclear power. From what I know, people downtown England breath better today then when they where burning coal in houses.
So I don't believe in those dooms day scenarios, humans are better than that, period.
