Humans unbounded (exponential) proliferation causes nature to disappear forever
2 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Very sad story about how elephants must be placed in prisons (zoos) in order to ensure their survival because their habitats are DISAPPEARING. Massacre of environment happens on global scale: sacred and very needed by life on Earth trees are being massacred by human predator. Human predator is most vicious because it is the only one that kills for sports. Situation in Asia which is described in this film is not unique: in Amazon, for example, gold mining, illegal tree cutting, illegal ranching (just like everywhere on Earth) already destroyed a lot of sacred trees ("AMAZON with Bruce Perry"). Message to us is that most vicious predator (human) must learn to stop destroying its own environment. Most vicious predator must stop unbounded (exponential) reproduction: it leaves no space for healthy environment for most vicious predator and leaves no space for animals. CONSUMPTION is not "cool" anymore. Hint: coexistence of human and environment (nature and animals). If you cannot farm it - you cannot kill it.
