It is a worldwide problem. So many who just can't get science and math, or even to think of consequences down the road.
Look at the number of people in the world who live a green life out of caring about the future :mrgreen: , and look at how many don't out of ignorance :crazy: , stupidity =P~ , selfishness :-s or greed :twisted: .

true that it is a world wide problem johnny. no matter the colour. ... and the people who are aware of it are educated. So would it not be wise to educate people ..... children .... differently? Can we dare?

Are they educated enough? If so, can they effectively apply what they've learned?

Only if it's going to make a difference.

It is "species" tommee #-o , and there is enough variability for a speciation episode in a perfect world(5K years with no interbreeding 8) ). Those that can live and understand sustainability \:D/ , plus think ahead long term in all they do :-k , without selfishness/greed, or stupidity/ignorance O:) , are the small minority, unfortunately :cry: . They are getting dragged toward ecocide with the vast majority who do not have these traits :x :-& . So are 85 to 90% of other species :shock: . Not from cosmetics testing, but from human induced ecological collapses. :x :cry: [-o< O:) :mrgreen:

You are really low brow creepy =P~ and would be better off as compost with the rest of your family :razz: , to replenish the Earth as God intended. :mrgreen:

I do, but I am not a low IQ over-breeder, apparently like you. I do compost and live green with only one child. You are closer to a chimpanzee than I am to you. :razz: :mrgreen: :lol: 8)

You are an insulting liar. Any married couple who have one or none with kids helps to reduce population. Those that have 2 are keeping it at 8 times the long term carrying capacity of the planet. For each child after that it goes up geometrically in ecological effects of depletion and pollution. It is a long term or even medium term footprint multiplier. So that 3rd kid multiplies it say times 5 and the 4th times 10, and 5th times 20, all dependent on lifestyle and regional effects. =; :mrgreen:

I don't buy the IQ bit. Most folks would have answered the questions correctly with some prior instruction and a little curiosity. Mostly people don't know or care about this stuff because it has little relevance to their lives. It's hard to believe 1% got zero. That confounds random chance. Somebody was having fun. :lol:

Either that or there were enough from "alternative" educations that discount science in favor of belief.
