Red ants came from Brazil in the hold of one ship. They now have spread from Maryland to San Francisco covering the south. They are a pestilent invading species.
Man reportedly came from Africa and spread out over the earth. Breeding uncontrollable and living at the expense of every other living species on earth. We spread, encroaching on or destroying the habitats of many species and out right drive others to extinction.
China has many protection programs in place to protect the wild. But so much as already been destroyed. The Yellow river is the single greatest source of pollution to the Pacific Ocean. Many native species are either extinct or on the cusp of extinction. It is only one example that is repeated worldwide.
And still, humans continue breeding long past the tipping point at which the earth cannot support us. And still, we continue to procreate.
War, famine, disease and natural disasters trim our population but still we go on building our madness.
In the 70's, there was a movement called Zero Population Growth. What happened to that movement?
It still lives!
