PLANET be­fore peo­ple.

The down­side with the eco­nomic model repli­cated over and over around the world as con­tin­u­ous un­lim­ited growth is that more and more of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment gets gob­bled up bit by bit re­lent­lessly as if it’s lim­it­less.

De­vel­op­ers, min­ers etc just want this bit, and then just that bit and so on.

Ul­ti­mately they will leave noth­ing be­hind but an un­live­able planet be­yond car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity in the even­tual end game if they could.

Can any­one else but me see the very ob­vi­ous fast ap­proach­ing catas­tro­phe if noth­ing is done by us? BRAD CAPES Cool­bellup
