All Aspects of Nature are Degrading Rapidly

To Save Ourselves It's Time to Rethink Our Economic System, Warn Scientists,
Science Alert, September 10, 2018.

Main Points & Bottom Line

“...maybe it's time to accept we can't somehow maintain endless economic growth on a finite planet.”

I really don't know about "rethinking" our "economic system," but I do know that the unlimited, irresponsible, and even illegal massive growth of the population of California, and the United States generally, has seriously degraded our environment, our society, our infrastructure, and our distribution of wealth.

This irresponsible growth is the most destructive force operating in our country and world today, and is pushing our changing environment through all its tipping points.

And, everything will continue to crash until we get back within our ethical and our physical limits. We need to institute a policy of Zero Demographic Growth, and end all immigration, legal and illegal, NOW.

Allowing the greedy and corrupt to control our society, and grow it to destruction pursuing their greedy desires, was never a good idea... and was supposed to be prevented by our Constitution.

...which tells me we've got to fix our country first, to fix our environment...
