Still multiplying with unbounded (exponential) rate, like rats
2 March 2011 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"6 Billion Others", a film by renowned film director, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, depicts the lives of individuals and communities on the frontline of the climate challenge. The film does not present a real solution to the problem: Human predator is multiplying without bounds (exponentially) while nature and animals are disappearing exponentially. Human predator is most vicious because it kills for sports. So, by stopping consumerism and stopping multiplying like rats you will only do yourself (and your children) a favor: you will stabilize YOUR environment. CONSUMPTION is not the answer to very limited world resources. If you are religious: "go forth (be fruitful) and multiply" was repealed by Jesus in the new testament (just like many such Old Testament "orders/commandments" were repealed by him in new testament). Even Jesus showed to you that the truths (commandments) must be changed with changing times.
