The signs are all too evident and I don't think it's a communist ploy. There is no way that 7 times the amount of people in this world consuming exponential amounts of fuel, food, water, minerals, air, and spewing out waste by the tons can be a communist alarm. Give me a break...If I could make less of an impact on the environment, I would. We are ALL caught up in this. In the big pond, every very successful species eventually meets its demise by overpopulation and living in its own waste. The only difference with us is that we are taking the diversity of all life on earth with us, save the viruses and parasites we play host to....everyone wants production and consumption....but no one knows what to do with the byproducts of the past 100 years.
