If you have not seen A life on our Planet on Netflix then its a must for everyone who cares and definitely a must watch for those who don't care.

Did you watch it on your plastic TV made from petroleum, powered by coal, whilst typing on your keyboard that was made is a mega factory in China?

^^^^Yeah a few of the HW locals cant let go

If they watched it they would see we can still have our tv, computers or what ever they deem important, but its how we use the land/oceans to power and manufacture these thing.
Biodiversity and sustainability is the key, as he shows in the documentary some places have gone from only having a 3rd of their original rainforests left, decided to do something about it and now half of it back in the last 20 years

Its a bit of an eye opener seeing how much damage David Attenborough has seen in just his life time and how bad he shows things to be in just 10 more years.
Not just for the extinction of animals, but the extinction of US.

I think everyone agrees that something needs to be done. What can be done though?

Mega-factorys make Mega-money and of course make a sh!tload of polution. What do you do? Shut the factories down? Then we dont make money and the world needs money to work. No politician is going to want to be involved with a project that looses money and jobs.

China and other asian countries are the real environmental dangers.
Australia makes very small amounts of polution compared to them but then you ask yourself where all the products that we buy come from. Where there is demand there is supply so are we to blame?

The truth is the next 10,20,30,40,50+ years our environment will nearly certainly change significantly whether we make an effort to help the environment or not.

Rant over.

Nothing to do with ownership. Example, there is 'our' family. We don't own the members of the family and it is certainly in the best interest of everybody involved to look after the family.

Everything can be traced back to the habits of the less fortunate.

Give developing nations a hand, eliminate poverty and improve access to cheap readily available power, education and employment and you will solve 90% of the worlds environmental problems by industrialising them and creating wealth and life security. Less babies and more care about the environment they live in equals a better world.

Weathy Nations are not the problem, but our focus on irrelevent solutions is.

Good idea in general , but the problem is that Weathy Nations try to keep less wealthy in the poverty forever.Once those poorest build something. iron birds comes and bomb everything to the ground again.
Try to cut tree to build new home- can't because this part must remain natural reserve Even you single coffee cup cost here more then ,50 kg bag of beans poor farmer harvested.

Trump is going to blow Ethiopian water damm, because ...poorest county in Africa spend all the money they have on this infrastructure instead of few fighter jets from US.

yep. but we all here will be protesting for rights of Ulguru Muslims because enemy of our enemy must be our friends, even if that friend could be our enemy too....ie Fance recent example.
To be fair I don't know any other planet where the injustice is greater then here.Do YOU?

Mate, some pretty wild statements there, not quite sure where you get your propaganda from.

Essentially, the issue is overpopulation. If every country had the same population density as Aust, there'd be nothing to talk about.

The per capita excuse to ramp up your own countries output is just hypocritical rubbish.

there is not such thing like overpopulation problem at this moment. Planet could feed and give shelter to 10 or 100x more...There could live just two people on Island big like Australia , and they will chase each other with knifes, or you could have nation of millions living on tiny Island and being happy in general.
Your aggressive tone just illustrate version 1. Uncompromised heatread to anybody thinking differently.

I thought the gist of this thread was man's destruction of our world and environment? Are you saying David Attenborough has uncompromised "heatread" for people? By the way, the status quo is more and more people, "...thinking differently..." is actually to call for less people.
