We did it!

We have Humanized Planet Earth.

We own it.

The future is ruled by Human Nature.

Good or bad, right or wrong, everything we do is as natural as the Sunrise.

If we destroy our niche on planet Earth, it will be part of the natural course of events.

If we survive and thrive, we’ll owe it all to Human Nature.

Survival of the species drives our actions.

We have doubled our population in less than a century.

Procreation Rules!

All thanks to Human Nature.

Now, many of us foresee doom and gloom as a result of overpopulation.

There are way too many people for the available resources.

We’re running out of room and all of the good stuff is gone.

SUCCESS has become our greatest enemy.

Go figger!


If we instantly tackled Climate Change, the way we did COVID-19, our future would look much brighter.

But we didn’t, and here we are.

The Pandemic forced our hand.

We saw the clear and present threat of COVID-19, and turned our best minds loose on the virus.

But, there’s never going to be a vaccine for Climate Change.

It’s time to learn a different lesson.

Earth’s climate has been changing since day one.

The planet does not need saving.

We do.

Man-Made Climate Change is as natural as the sunrise.

We are Nature.

If we greedily destroy our niche on planet Earth, it’s just part of the Natural Course of Events.

Something else will fill the void left by our passing.

Welcome to The Anthropocene.

We did this.

Now what?

The men in charge of The Anthropocene do not worry about ecological disaster.

To them, Nature is messy and dangerous, standing in the way of progress.

There were no trees in The Jetsons.

The planet raping scumbags determining humanity’s future look forward and see nothing.

What do they care?

They’ll be in their mausoleums before the worst of Climate Change hits the fan.

It’s long been obvious that we’re poisoning our niche in the name of progress.

Excessive use of fossil fuels is clearly bad for us.

But, if not for Kerosene, we would have killed every whale in the ocean a hundred years ago to make lamp oil.

There is no easy answer to the Climate Crisis.

Humans have no brakes and no reverse.

It’s just not natural for people to revert in favor of a safer environment.

We must work to develop sustainable alternatives, while we adapt to the changes we’ve already made.

Will our ‘Superior Intellect’ figger it out and rescue us once again?

Or have we pushed the envelope too far this time?

Hopefully, this gives you a clearer picture.

We are in it up to our ears, because we cannot stop ourselves.

For better or worse, Human Nature will prevail.
