Truth hurts. Thank you for continuing to speak out, Umair. Add to all this, huge political donations by fossil fuel manufacturers forcing Gov. DeathSentence of Florida to forbid any municipality to become sustainable, add religions that encourage rampant reproduction (multiply and cover the earth!), add changing school curricula to prevent kids from learning anything about where their food comes from, or science, or history... and so on. The planet will protect herself, this is certain, and the way she's doing that is to cause humans to go extinct. Maybe if any survive, they'll return to the old ways where money doesn't exist and the only things that matter are respect for Nature and each other. I'm glad I'm old. Maybe I won't live long enough to see the end that's coming. :(
