"THE EXTINCTION CRISIS
It's frightening but true: Our planet is now in the midst of its sixth mass extinction of plants and animals — the sixth wave of extinctions in the past half-billion years. We're currently experiencing the worst spate of species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Although extinction is a natural phenomenon, it occurs at a natural “background” rate of about one to five species per year. Scientists estimate we're now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the background rate, with literally dozens going extinct every day [1]. It could be a scary future indeed, with as many as 30 to 50 percent of all species possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century [2].

Unlike past mass extinctions, caused by events like asteroid strikes, volcanic eruptions, and natural climate shifts, the current crisis is almost entirely caused by us — humans. In fact, 99 percent of currently threatened species are at risk from human activities, primarily those driving habitat loss, introduction of exotic species, and global warming [3]. Because the rate of change in our biosphere is increasing, and because every species' extinction potentially leads to the extinction of others bound to that species in a complex ecological web, numbers of extinctions are likely to snowball in the coming decades as ecosystems unravel." http://www.biologicaldiversity.org/prog ... on_crisis/

........
Hundreds of "isms" came with industrialization.......Hundreds of socio-economic theories came with industrialization.......All the madness and destruction came with industrialization.......The problem was not Capitalism, Communism or Socialism........The problem was Industrialism.

This planet was non-industrial for millions of years.......Industrial society has barely existed for hundred years......This planet was non-industrial for more than 99.99% of the time life has existed on it......Hundred years of industrial activity has destroyed what was created by nature in millions of years.


When there was still time to save environment, a whole century was wasted in the futile debate on Capitalism, Communism and Socialism........The problem is Industrialism.......Where there is industry there is environmental destruction......All industrial societies are equally harmful, destructive and evil.

American industry has destroyed environment.
Russian industry has destroyed environment.
Chinese industry has destroyed environment.
British, French and German industries have destroyed environment.
Japanese, Indian and Korean industries have destroyed environment.

Mining industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Manufacturing industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Construction industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Electricity industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Oil industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Road and Rail industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Airline and Shipping industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Meat and Fishing industry destroys environment........It doesn't matter whether it is run under Capitalism, Communism or Socialism.

Forests, rivers, oceans and atmosphere have been destroyed.......Millions of land and marine species have been decimated........Who will debate Capitalism, Communism and Socialism on a dead planet?
.
.

It is the urban population of the world that is running industrial activity.......Industrial activity is directly proportional to percentage of urban population.......Consumerism is directly proportional to percentage of urban population.........Destruction of environment is directly proportional to percentage of urban population.

A communist industrial society with 80% urban population or a socialist industrial society with 80% urban population will be as destructive as a capitalist industrial society with 80% urban population.

It is the percentage of urban population that determines how destructive industrial society is, not capitalism, communism or socialism.
.
.

Stop saying 1% has ruined the world......It is 50% not 1%.......50% has destroyed the planet.......Urban population of industrial society has destroyed the planet......Billions of urban people are running all the Mega Corporations of the world.........Billions of urban people are employed in Mega Corporations.........Billions of urban people are getting salaries and packages from Mega Corporations.......The 1% ultimately comes from this urban population.

The entire urban population of industrial society is criminal........The 1% that comes from this urban population is even more criminal.
.
.

Millions of other species don't have Evil Corporations......Human species did not have Evil Corporations in hunter_gatherer society and agrarian society.

Evil Corporations came with industrialization........1% that owns evil corporations came with industrialization........50% that works in evil corporations came with industrialization........There were no evil corporations, no owners of evil corporations, no urban population working in evil corporations in pre-industrial society.

As long as you have industrial society you will have evil corporations......As long as you have industrial society you will have 1% and 50%.

All problems of industrial society have been created by industrialization.......All problems of industrial society are unsolvable because industrialization itself is the cause of problems.......Problems of industrial society can go away only when industrial society goes away.

Millions of industries and corporations have destroyed Forests, Rivers, Oceans and Atmosphere......It doesn't matter who owns these industries and corporations......1%, 50% or 100%.......The important issue is destruction of environment........Millions of industries and corporations have destroyed the planet.
.
.

This planet is very small........Just 40,000 km in circumference.

Millions of other species destroyed environment only for food.

Forest man destroyed environment only for food.

Agrarian man destroyed environment for food, clothing and shelter.

Industrial man has destroyed environment for food, clothing, shelter PLUS thousands of consumer goods and services.

Industrial man has destroyed Exponential Extra Environment.

EXPONENTIAL EXTRA ENVIRONMENT.

It is the urban population of industrial society that has destroyed exponential extra environment.

The collective work of human society must be limited to food, clothing and shelter.........Millions of other species only get food from earth.

Millions of other species have already been decimated by industrial activity.......More than 99% of collapse has already happened......Man is next on the list.......Human collapse will come with lightning speed now.
.
.

Man has spent more than 99.9% of his time on earth in non-industrial societies.

Man lived in forests for hundreds of thousands of years........Man lived in villages in agrarian society for 10,000 years........Man has lived in industrial society for just about 100 years during which he has destroyed the entire planet.

If Urban Society stops its supplies to Rural Society it will live forever.
If Rural Society stops its supplies to Urban Society it will die within a month.
That is the worth of Urban Jobs, Consumer Goods, Growth Rate, Economy Rate and GDP.

Industrialization was the biggest crime on earth.
Agrarian society was the limit for man on earth.
Stop Education.........Close down Universities.
Stop Urban Work..........Close down the Cities.
