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.
you're doing an excellent job convincing me that you have absolutely no idea what you're saying. or anyone else is saying.your hypothesis is no problem
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.
Well, I'm Mayan - and I sure am annoyed about it.
Some experts think that by 2013 the US will have:
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
