I'm not even sure what that is. Is that a militant, fanatical form of environmentalism?
I think they're responding to many comments posted elsewhere. There are some pretty extreme and occasionally nonsensical theories being bandied about, some of which are needlessly inciting, which is probably why the new game proclamation today.
I don't think the current pandemic is the 'cull' that would remove enough humans to bring about environmental change. It'll not even reach the scale of a 'decimation', but is a real enough threat to warrant taking seriously. Even if, in hindsight, the precautions being enacted turn out to be superfluous, we can still think of this as a practice run at dealing with a potentially more deadly contagion.
Humans may be a bit dense at times, self-centered and arrogant, but they are a resilient, adaptable species and aren't going anywhere soon regardless of how much they try to do themselves in.
I am not at all happy about humans dying. I am just saying the good about humans staying at home and not really going out much and industrialization coming to a halt and how good it is for our planet.
Ya humans are smart and eventually will figure things out but I must say that as a whole, humans are self-centered as well.
I'm still enjoying the videos uploaded to YouTube of animals wandering the empty streets of cities and towns where everyone is stuck inside.
I hope you all are staying safe amidst the current crisis.
So, as many of you know, Earth Day is coming up soon in April and this got me thinking that we as humans are doing a fairly good job so far cleaning up our land we live on. However, quite often us humans forget about our wonderful oceans and other bodies of water. We forget that they exist even though 70% of our planet's land mass is water!
Thank you to Lake of Fur for sending me the above article. It highlights that our oceans can actually be saved within the next 30 years, so by 2050. Scientists have predicted that if we change our way of thinking of actually take real action then it can truly be saved and turn into the magical place it once was. Governments must enact tougher laws such as no sewers should go into our bodies of water and no one can throw plastic in the waters.
Do the oceans need us? Yes the oceans do need us.
Do we need the oceans? YES we need the oceans more than the oceans need us. Our oceans provide us with 70% of the oxugen we breathe today. This means that if we want to live here on Earth, we have to make sure that our oceans live and are as healthy as they can be.
Hats off to everyone that's contributing positively to make our world a better place by making it environmentally sustainable!! I salute you.
I must say The New Confederation has an excellent description on their home page currently.
"If humans were extinct, all other lifeforms would thrive.
If all other lifeforms were extinct, humans would die."

I voted against the current WA Resolution because it says that "product manufacturing [one of the things they allowed vivisection for] in this case includes things that can provide material benefit to their owner."
There are other things in there that can easily be looked over, such as the frequent use of 'it' in reference to an animal rather than 'they'.
The Music Box is officially disbanding. Good day.
Where the wild things are... I'm gonna miss that place.
