So the death rate is dropping; how is this good news? American Culture, like most of Western Culture exists as a parasite; there is no stopping, no moderation in population growth, and it is a fight every time industry is told to only use natural resources in moderation, and be mindful of the environmental cost of their actions.
When Population levels are exploding across the rest of the world, where our borders are being violated due to the disparity between resources, when massive die-offs are happening in Sub-Saharan Africa just to put a lid on the human population there, this is good news?
We can not live forever, we can not expand forever, we can not continue to rape, pillage, and burn, and expect the planet to continue with us. Either environmental conditions will throw us off, or the planet ecology dies.
Good news... my ass!
