    animals destroy plants...one way or another...so risk their oxygen supply...overpopulation will destroy more plants...human emissions of CO2 require more plants to turn it into oxygen...it doesn't add up...and the problems are starting in the ocean...just look at coral reefs

    right, but you framed this as a problem for all life on Earth, and plants in particular. seems to me if animals follow this route--H. sapiens sapiens in particular--then most of the animals become extinct, and the plants 'win'. sure, lots of plant species will become extinct, but more will evolve to fill the empty niches. in the long run, they'll produce more oxygen, and whatever animals are left will evolve to fill the vacant niches. massive dying offs have happened a few times since the advent of life; life on Earth will be fine. it's a question of whether or not we'll be part of it, and for how long.
    Imodium can't stop me.

    so what the fuck are your garbled ramblings about if you already agree with what i said a dozen or more posts ago??? you're confessing that you're being a complete asshole for the sheer joy of it then? damn shame, most trolls show a higher level of craft than that.

    unless you're trying for a trollish version of Monty Python's 'argument clinic' sketch it's about time you pulled your head out of your ass and said what exactly you're disagreeing with then, because you did say this:

    your hypothesis is no problem
    you're doing an excellent job convincing me that you have absolutely no idea what you're saying. or anyone else is saying.

    time to come clean and be clear about what you're claiming. failure to do so will be taken as a tacit admission that you're either trolling or senile.

    btw, it's funny how much verbiage goes into describing growing wealth and income disparities and how little into analyzing why. the funny thing is they're much worse now than before we built all these big government programs in the 60s and 70s. my theory is that all that stuff was debt financed and so the interest share of income has grown and caused all these problems.

    Some experts think that by 2013 the US will have:

    50% unemployment
    90% stockmarket collapse
    100% annual inflation

    because the government and corporations will have to borrow at high rates, and tax more or cut wages to do it

    That would be the obvious conclusion...but nowhere near exciting as the alternative
