People are too selfish and stupid to be able to reduce the population over time. You'd go against their beliefs, and morals to not let them breed exponentially, and teach their children to do the same. People think they are entitled to have as many children as they please without thinking of the consequences of doing so. We look down on China for trying to reduce their population, humans think they are better than everything. July 1, 2013 Reply Chloe Phillips Humans are worthless because there are so many of us. Humans are worthless because we destroy so much. We are worthless because we think of ourselves as being amazing and valuable. The fact there are 7 billion people on this planet is disgusting. Killing off other animals and plants for the human race is stupid and selfish and that's what makes us worthless. The idea we think we are better than everything, and so destroying everything is ok as long as we survive. July 1, 2013 Reply Ethan d Yes, I agree with your first statement however, the question of whether or not aliens annihilated themselves if they became intelligent is more of a complex matter, and probably won't have an absolute answer. (if we were to find an answer) I'm simply saying that, seeing how many times the universe has surprised us before, is it that hard to believe that it may surprise us again? I consider the answer may be an alternative I may not be aware of simply because of knowing this fact. July 1, 2013 Reply Jalix Mergenberg I understand your point, and am sorry if I sounded too defensive. The universe is vast enough that nearly anything is possible, even if we can't comprehend it all. July 2, 2013 Reply Objects in Motion You have failed to give any reasons as to WHY any of those things are so negative. If we are worthless as you believe, then so are animals and the environment, and there would be nothing wrong with destroying it. If killing makes us worthless, why then is it okay for animals to kill? You can't have a double standard. The human race has just begun, the earth will support much more than 7 billion in the future, and there will always be people saying it's too much. July 3, 2013 Reply Ethan d Hey, you didn't sound offensive at all. No need to apologize. Just throwing my thoughts out there. 🙂 July 3, 2013 Reply Othelbark I cannot see anything in what he said that could be interpreted as offensive… July 3, 2013 Reply Ethan d Which is why I told him that he wasn't offensive… July 5, 2013 Reply 64jcl The Anthropocene is the single period of earths history when a single species on the planet will be able to trigger an extinction event (and I am not talking about nukes). I do believe our ignorance is perfectly illustrated by the name we gave to this species, homo sapiens.

I wonder how big the population impact would be? August 12, 2013 Reply Sarge Rho Not much actually. August 19, 2013 Reply Joel Hedlund the best way to ensure the survival of a species is to expand the population. the problem is that we have been wasting decades on television programs and mcdonald's ads instead of putting the money into a global space program so we can begin colonize the space. we had setbacks like the plague : Black Death which kept us in same age too long. if we didn't have that i believe we would be born on marsh today ^^, or some other exoplanet ^^, August 24, 2013 Reply Luke G Tbh you made no sense here. If you think you know how to colonize into space please share your ideas? Not only is traveling out of the galaxy currently impossible with humans onboard. But where would we go? You mentioned mars so, do you think it would be nice living in its pole temperatures of -243 degree F. You may argue that during the daytime… in summer the temperature is 67 F, however the sumer night times avg. -67 F. Bring a jacket! The bubonic plague had more positives then negatives. August 28, 2013 Reply Luke G Btw the Positives of the bubonic plague: -Many peasants were dieing of hunger during this time because of the shortage of food. The plague made it so the current agriculture techniques (which was the inefficient 3 field system) was sufficient for the community. -It gave peasents a place in society. Labor shortages gave peasents room to negotiate with guild masters and manor lords. -The "Peasents revolt" gave workers right to peasents. (only able to do cuz of labor shortage.) -there many more +'s August 28, 2013 Reply grealalal To be honest, we are also a force of great potential, like no other, in a span of light years. We have the potential to do so much in this universe and i am not going to stick to this planet and watch our potential squander away. We are smart, and we are tenacious, we wont stay on this planet for long, we will leave and prosper amongst the stars. It isn't madness, staying here is madness, Were all going to leave eventually, humanity is a snowball effect that will not stop, we are nature itself. August 28, 2013 Reply Dex Luther You're confusing words. Galaxy does not equal Solar System. Mars is in our Solar System. Our Solar System is in the galaxy with many other solar systems and other stuff. Beyond that is other Galaxies with their own countless Solar Systems, which have their own planets. August 30, 2013 Reply Dex Luther We've wasted much much much much much much much more time and money on Religion and violence. If NASA had even 50% of the current US military budget, we'd probably have installations on the moon and probably even Mars by now. If NASA had the money the Vatican has stashed away, I can't even imaging what our view of space and space travel would be right now. August 30, 2013 Reply Joel Hedlund well, the US Gov is corrupted for sure. only war and violence. police country. iv stopped having hope for the united stated long time ago. when the citizens elect a man twice even if he did not kept hes promise about how he was going to run the country they still elect him. also NASA is a federal bureau that classifies everything they get their hands on until further notice everything they do is behind the citizens back. can americans still say its democracy ? its a same ^^, August 30, 2013 Reply Luke G sorry, by saying galaxy i just meant out of our solar system. But traveling out of the milky way galaxy is still impossible with humans on board ;P September 5, 2013 Reply Luke G In late 2012 the Vatican stated their reserve was a hefty 7.5 Billion dollars with 5% capital in bonds 1.7 bil. to build shuttle (based on endevour, an orbital shuttle) 450 mil. Mission to orbi 104 bil. to take 4 men to the moon for a week. Don't set up your lemonade stand just yet! Russians have set a goal to mars for 2016-2020 to be the first humans on mars. And thanks to private funding the US is planning to go in 2018. If u guys are so dedicated, sign up for a 1 way ticket. its cheaper September 5, 2013 Reply Luke G Obama was elected cuz of his race, just saying. Btw if you wanna go to space invent a gold growing tree! then we'll prob be on mars the very next day! September 5, 2013 Reply Joel Hedlund obama is only a shack piece of it all. America's government has been corrupted long. and btw there is already a way to upfinna gold. However, it takes millions of years before there is any significant amount lol. but anyway, I think a space organization should be civilian work for everyone. As I said we are in the same boat and we are all around the globe to know what decisions are taken then as I said earlier. so we sit in the same boat in the end.

Let us not stop, let us not rest until we stand at the summit of Mount Olympus towering fourteen miles above the surface of Mars, locking arms with all the races of man. And we will know that we are together forever as a one. November 1, 2013 Reply pyronetics01 While I agree with your thought, the Black Death is actually what pushed us out of the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance. Before the plague, if some peasants refused to work, they could just find other peasants who were willing to work. After nearly 2/3's of Europe's population died, Feudal lords had far fewer peasants to work for them, and if they rebelled, they wouldn't have anyone left to work for them. The peasants used this to get more $, and eventually freedom from their lords. November 5, 2013 Reply Kevin why the hell should the human race grow any further? November 6, 2013 Reply Brandon I am just going to throw it put there but even Einstein admitted it is easier to deny the laws of physics than the laws of economics. We ask for this when we buy a nd support products made like this. Everyone is guilty November 12, 2013 Reply PazakoKaru Why should we as humans grow any further? We do what we must because we can!

We have the dual potential to destroy the biosphere or create utopia for all intelligent entities on the planet with technology. Technology is a double-edged sword.

October 26, 2014 Reply Nick Awesome stuff and all, what we have achieved. But we are also destroying our own environment, before we are able to leave this planet into space one day. We still have a pretty long time here, and the amount of c02 in the sky is getting way too much -> Temperatures go up too much. Instead of controlling the environment to benefit the survival of the population, we should controll the population to allow the survivival of the environment as David Attenborough once said.

While I do not deny that humans probably have a minor to moderately significant impact on the Earth I have questions for the climate alarmist people. 1. The climate on Earth has changed many times without Humans; based on what grounds do you think man can control the change of the climate, with or without fossil fuels? 2. Realizing cheap and plentiful energy by fossil fuels provides us with all the modern luxuries; are you willing to surrender that or pay very high prices for energy because humans may have a slight (around 2~ degrees) impact on the Earth? 3. Are you aware that the alternatives proposed, solar and wind mostly, are very costly and very ineffective at mass power generation? 4. Realizing that, why are you so opposed to nuclear energy programs? (both fission and fusion) As it is the belief of many business tycoons that is the only real solution to this problem to where we can maintain our modern lifestyle?
