A lot of people (and even people who aren’t my boyfriend) think that the world is over-populated. David Suzuki talks about it all the time and he’s a scientist!
Confession: Call me naïve or call me stupid (just not in the same sentence, please) but whenever I hear someone talk about how we’re destroying our own planet and how our exponential growth is suicidal because it’s gotten to the point where our planet is no longer capable of feeding everyone, I think about the dinosaurs and the missing links and I feel . . . um, comfort in “knowing” that the world will take care of itself somehow. It always does.
I also take comfort in “knowing” that the world will do what it needs to after I’m gone. But that’s just my happy-go-lucky side talking. (I love my happy-go-lucky side.)
This theory of mine – about the world handling her own problems, naturally – stems from reading about forest fires and the food chain. And was recently further reinforced when I read about how Twitter is harder to resist than sex.
So you see. That’s the world taking care of our over-population problem once again through Social Media.
Which brings me to another point: maybe I should connect with David Suzuki.
