Arrogance to Think Man can Destroy the Earth with so tiny a Population

Timothy Birdnow

On a Facebook post a man left a comment over a criticism of environmentalism/global warming hysteria by the debating Democrats.

He said:

So you don't think seven and a half billion people can screw up the environment huh

To which I replied:

Half of the Earth's land surface is wilderness. Also, 96 percent of the world's population lives on ten percent of the land. That's not to mention the fact that we are hardly on the seas; 71 percent of the Earth is covered with water. We like to think we have overcrowded the Earth (and it may seem that way since we all cluster together) but the fact is the planet is far, far larger than we.

From space the only sign of human habitation is the Great Wall of China. An alien coming here would see a planetary wilderness. He might see some junk floating around in orbit, and maybe, just maybe, notice the Great Wall, but little else.

The arrogance of the Gang Green is astonishing. We are not the gods we like to think of ourselves as, nor are we destroying the planet; we are a species that is here and may one day be gone, like all the other species that walked across the stage. Earth is but a stage, as Shakespeare rightly observed, and in the end we are but players to be seen no more. Our physical lives aren't what is important, anyway, from any sort of religious perspective, but rather Earth is merely a way station, a place where we learn a few things and wait to serve out our time. It's God's waiting room.

But the Left - agnostic to atheistic and desperate to find meaning in their meaningless materiality - have to believe they are the rulers, the ones who must save the world or destroy it. It's simply a desperate attempt by desperate people to put some meaning in their empty, pathetic lives. A life without God, and no chance for something more, is empty indeed.

Too many people  believe in nothing. That's why things like Global Warming and Transgenderism have become hot topics.

1 In fact, Tim, I've read that it's a myth that the Great Wall of China CAN be seen from outer space. Now I grant you, it may depend on just where you are located in "outer space." That "myth" must have gotten its start somewhere, after all. But I really did see it debunked.

2 Thanks Dana; hadn't heard that. I know if it IS visible it's just barely. 

Shoot; you can't even see anything man made when you are flying in an airplane.
