No a birth controlled population rate means that humans could survive longer and many of the ecological disasters could heal themselves. Taking no action is the way to extinction. Critters that do not change with conditions die out. And we are one of the few that can see what is happening ad can change and adapt purposely. Tony you amaze me. I am a lot closer to my own death, probably within the next few years, and yet I refused to give up on the human race. As I do believe in reincarnation, I would much like to com back to a world that is recovering instead of getting worse. Even if I didn’t come back I would still want a better word for the future people, that they might have a better life than most have had so far. Fewer people means a much higher standard of living for the average person. One aspect of being Pagan is that i value the time of mortal living while so many christians seem only to be focused on after life. You need not wait around, rush to the after life as you seem to have given up on life.
