Some of my formerly radical views seem to be becoming more mainstream. Click this first link to read the main topic of this post.
I’ve said this about humanity for a long time. In various places, I’ve compared the graph of human population to the graph of the population of introduced reindeer on St. Matthew’s Island and pointed to the way in which they ate out their resource base on their small island and died out. We’re doing the same on a slightly bigger island.
Note how the above graphs look very similar … if you add six zeros to the end of the reindeer population numbers. The big differences are the even greater steepness of the human population growth … and the fact that we haven’t crashed … yet.
I’ve also made a few other posts on the subject of overpopulation, such as these.
How long will we wait to discuss the growing problem of our growing population? The clock is ticking.
