Today’s amazing technology is a great distraction, but did you know? When population scientists plug into their computers all of the basic needs for 7 to 9 billion or more people to live on planet Earth, they can’t get the answer to come out in our favor. We have overshot sustainable health and peace.
Do you have children or grandchildren or will you in the future? Given today’s growing problems, can you look at children and not wonder what their life will be like as adults?
I see every present and future child depending on every present and future parent to know about Mother Earth’s present and future family planning urgency: “One is good; two is enough; if outnumbered, love all and stop.”
Every day that you can, dispatch the following population slogan somewhere. “The Best Legacy: Love all your children, but create no more or one or two if none.”
It’s to remind people that future generations need smaller population numbers sharing Nature’s finite life-supporting resources in order to not starve or fight over them like we do.
