you know why animal populations are lowering? there's not enough after all this de-forestation and hunting has lead to a freak ton of extinctions. as such, in the future, i think we're better off living in a society far removed from it in order for it to recover. it might take money, convincing the public, and getting support we need, but I'm desperate. I'm sick and tried of all this prediction of animals becoming extinct at the rate we're going. i rather hear animal populations bouncing back instead.

 

 

i don't expect that many replies to be honest.

This is going to be a rough century for the environment, but if we make it through it, we will have the power to completely reverse all of the damage we've done.  Already, we're through doing most of our harm, that was the 20th century.  We just have to endure the after affects, and we can eventually return the Earth to its pre-industrial state.

We can't and shouldn't. Rural areas are great.

they suck and it's better to make people do their own gardens then let a bunch of farmers tear down land.

You're saying that we all live in the city, AND grow our own food?  That would be practically impossible.  Vertical farms might suffice though, but it will take at least a decade for us to build enough vertical farms to sustain our entire population.

I agree that the world should largely be rewileded, but voluntarily. In tandem with that there's nothing wrong with some rural folk and we can make cities significantly smaller but much more vertical. The eventual aim would be to get the majority of humans off world entirely. We also have to gain access to vital resources, and that means taking resource extraction out of the hands of capitalists who inherently will ignore environmental safety measures in order to pad their profit margins. Believe it or not you can actually mine resources without disturbing much wildlife. There's nothing wrong with knocking down a couple of acres of trees to build a mine entrance that leads to a giant underground mine and shipping waste offworld or into deserts where it won't do any harm. There is something wrong with cutting down hundreds of thousands of acres of forest to build open pit mines and then dumping the waste into rivers and the like.

You shouldn't because when nuclear war breaks out, or when a majour epidemic breaks out, more people will die.

Let us all come together and help save the world, one tree at a time.

I remember Charles Darwin concluding a chapter in The Voyage of the Beagle with the same sentiment of ewolfs original post.

It was along the lines of: people are so amazed by the mystery of extinct animals and how they would do anything to see them roam again. Yet when animals of current times are going extinct right in front of us, no one gives a damn.

In Fairness, while that was somewhat true in Darwin's time, today the people amazed by the mystery of extinct animals are usually pretty on board with preventing the extinction of modern animals. (unless you're talking 8 year olds obsessed with dinosaurs) Its the people who don't care at all who are the issue. 

 

In Darwin's day there was a strong POV that god wouldn't let anything go extinct that he did not want extinct, so humans could do whatever. A lot of the guys who were the closest thing to modern biologist and naturalists just went out and shot interesting species to take home and stuff.

but not enough to increase it's numbers. now maybe i haven't been doing my research but the black rhino recently died. since we might have dna samples, i guess bring them back is not too hard unless people are on board with it. knowing humans? ya no, just playing god or something.
