So come on Sushil, instead of preaching to us come back and argue some valid points with us please.
Environment has been destroyed by industrialization not by population......If population could destroy environment then it would have got destroyed millions of years ago because the combined population of millions of other species was much greater than the current human population.
World population has not increased.......It has decreased......World population has been decimated.
Increase in human population has coincided with decimation of millions of other species.
The burden of population has not increased.......The burden of lifestyle has increased.
Environment has not been destroyed by the burden of population........Environment has been destroyed by the burden of industrial lifestyle.
Millions of other species destroyed environment only for food.
Forest man destroyed environment only for food.
Agrarian man destroyed environment for food, clothing and shelter.
Industrial man has destroyed environment for food, clothing, shelter PLUS thousands of consumer goods and services.
Industrial man has destroyed Exponential Extra Environment.
EXPONENTIAL EXTRA ENVIRONMENT.
(It is the urban population of industrial society that has destroyed exponential extra environment)
The collective work of human society must be limited to food, clothing and shelter........Millions of other species only get food from earth.
Millions of other species have already been decimated by industrial activity.........Man is next on the list........Human collapse will come with lightning speed now.
Human overpopulation is also a consequence of industrialization........It took hundreds of thousands of years for human population to reach 1 billion in 1800 AD (even though most families had 5 - 15 children all over the world in pre-industrial societies) ........From 1 billion it jumped to over 7 billion in just about 200 years after industrial revolution despite drastic reduction in number of children per family........This happened because of modern medicine which drastically reduced the death rate by curing diseases caused by virus and bacteria........If man had continued living in agrarian stage, human population would have been less than 2 billion today and this planet would have been in very good condition.
Man has spent more than 99.9% of his time on earth in non-industrial societies.
Man lived in forests for hundreds of thousands of years........Man lived in villages in agrarian society for 10,000 years........Man has lived in industrial society for just about 100 years during which he has destroyed the entire planet.
If Urban Society stops its supplies to Rural Society it will live forever.
If Rural Society stops its supplies to Urban Society it will die within a month.
That is the worth of Urban Jobs, Consumer Goods, Growth Rate, Economy Rate and GDP.
Industrialization was the biggest crime on earth.
Agrarian society was the limit for man on earth.
