we are living at the fag-end of history. Its all downhill from here.

10 billion hungry greedy messy selfish feckers living on Earth. Resources soon to all be exhausted.

Human civilisation peaked in the 1970's. What's coming our way will make WWII look like a picnic. The modern re-make of Blade Runner is headed our way.

the natural territory required to sustain just a handful of Neanderthals was a few hundred square miles. Nature will always cull a species that over-extends itself.

we are currently living through a mass extinction. We just didnt read the email about its veracity.

Aztec, Inca, Maya, Western Rome, Babylon, Hittite, Ancient Egypt.......... its difficult to find a bulletproof civilisation.

Numberswise, we've been too successful as a species really. I expect that will be corrected somewhere along the line.

We need the planet much more than the planet needs us, and as we're prone to short term thinking any crisis we contribute to that spans generations will likely be one that we only ever witness rather than act upon.

Nostradamus did predict that around now, give or take 100 odd years, that man wouldn"t be fighting any more wars, he will have a much bigger problem to deal with! Got me thinking, when you see that volcano in La Palma, spewing out lava in to the sea, giving off deadly gases, and the one in Iceland. Imagine if they just kept going, taking the sea with them, and the whole world getting a deadly smog! You never know whats in store, best have a few cold ones tonight, just in case!

The Dinosaurs managed to live for millions of years, seemingly without degrading their environment.
Comparatively, humans have been around for 10,000 years (or so), but how to you measure success ?

Humans have been into space, but we won't be around for even 1% of the time the dinosaurs managed. And not only will be destroy ourselves, but are also taking a multitude of species with us.

Will the planet and other lifeforms survive ?, ...hopefully.

The planet will be consumed by the sun or a mega comet strike.
The universe doesn't actually care about us. There have been and will be more planets like ours.

Dinosaurs and their evolutionary descendants, birds, have been around for about 240 million years.

Spare a thought for the trilobites who had it all their own way for over 250 million years and then vanished, leaving literally no descendants.

King Herod was going along the right lines.
If we eradicate all those males/females who drop children at every opportunity, we would reduce the world population.


this would apply to all nations. Benefit dossers, Royalty and politicians would be a lot more careful about where their seed is spread

There used to be a stance , still taken in some areas, that a human life is worth more than an animals. For example, when human idiots get into animal enclosures at the zoo, then it's the animal that gets shot.
In such situations, I would let nature take its course, with no further human intervention, and place a video on t'internet.

We are realising, (and it's taken a long time), that humans aren't the most important species and we live in a co-dependent environment where our species is symbiotic and (should) not be dominant.


Managed eco-tourism would have been the way forward, but it's really too late for that. All those speedboats, aeroplanes and tiger-hunting trips put us over the tipping-point ages ago.

All we can do is sit back and watch
