I joined both environmental groups and groups to stop illegal immigration when environmental groups at least paid lip service to reducing growing population numbers and immigration control groups were also concerned about the environment. Now, I save my money and my time. Partisan politics and globalization needs hold such sway that the "perfect storm" seems inevitable to me. Unfavorable climate change, soil depletion, environmental pollution and resource degradation along with ocean acidification and the overpopulation which largely fuels these things are now unstoppable without a major attitude adjustment. Us humans had the opportunity to become more reasonable at the start of the Industrial Age, but we let our competitiveness and greed lead the way.
And since we have not really changed our way of thinking,seeing and doing things, our lack of understanding is bringing us closer and closer to the tipping point of a global crisis.
