Poetry – 8 Billion

8 Billion

 

8 billion brains

Threaten many trillion lives.

We decide what is worthy

And what is not.

 

8 million minds

Want to feed 8 million mouths

And they don’t care

About the damage done.

 

Opher – 8.12.2019

 

 

Overpopulation is the cause of the present climate and environmental problems. It is responsible for massive deforestation – as land is cleared for agriculture. It is responsible for over-hunting, over-fishing and the destruction of many habitats.

The use of pesticides is decimating insect populations.

The massive pollution creating by our vehicles, industries and domestic use is poisoning the planet.

We need to get 8 billion down to a manageable 4 billion. Problems solved!!

I'd like to hear from you...
