Oh, I remember you green guy. We have met before.
Yep, but I havent had the pleasure in person.
At this point, I am not so sure you know what you are talking about. It might look good in a classroom, but the ability of life to exist is declining and it doesn't appear that will change.
The ability of SOME life to exist is declining. We are doing GREAT things for weedy species, invasive species and bacteria will find a way to live and prosper ANYWHERE. But alas, were talking about biodiversity.
Now, our loss of biodiversity is not because of population growth, but the way we manage land (with climate change bringing up a distant second). This is a post hoc ergo proctor hoc logical fallacy. The population grows, biodiversity declines. Therefore because of population growth, biodiversity declines. This is an incorrect line of reasoning.
Biodiversity is declining because of the waste we have here in America and because of the rampant over consumption of resources in our disposable society. We have yet to reach the point to where the problem IS so many people. Right now we are at the point of where a FEW people are screwing it all for everyone.
With simple better irrigation, better land use policies, a switch to a reduce, reuse, recycle society 10 billion would easily be able to exist w/o harming the biodiversity of the planet.
