What is the real danger that the earth faces? A difference perspective from Kevin Casey who says the real danger is not climate change but overpopulation.

  • The world’s rivers and seas aren’t choked with plastics and chemicals because of climate change. They’re that way because 7.7 billion people have crammed onto a planet.
  • The ‘environmental tipping point’ was actually reached around 1980, when science tells us that humanity began to consume more of the earth’s resources than the planet could possibly regenerate.
  • In this century, what we still mistakenly call economic growth is environmental destruction.
