I think the problem is that:
1. We are using a broken system to live by, in terms of how we value things, people,
who gets what, when and why.
I'm just one person, so I don't know how to make it better.
I accept that it can't be perfect, but it could be su much better!
2. There are way way too many people using that broken system and it's really
really hard/impossible to get out of it.
And it's not just a developed verses developing countries thing when it comes to the over population question.
Many factors, including religious and cultural reasons, push/encourage people to have many children.
Also lack of empowerment to women and girls, but also men in some cases.
I'm not saying at all that people shouldn't have children, it is something that after all, is wired in to most of us and after all if our parents didn't have children, we wouldn't be here today.
This isn't just about a few families who choose to have many children, it is a global issue, where people are not empowered, or do not have access to the right services to make informed choices about how many children they bring in to the world and when.
Again, not bashing anyone on here with multiple children, the issue is bigger than just the folks on this forum.
The same argument could be applied to me, as an assistance dog user.
But surely, I can use a long cane to get around, so I should do that instead of having a dog, because even though it's less efficient for me (in my opinion) it's much less carbon footprint than having a dog!
However I still have my trusty wonder hound.
I personally probably wouldn't have children, but I feel the current climate crisis has totally taken that choice away from me.
I am angry that I live in a broken and over used system, that I can't escape from.
I feel that no matter what I do, I'm still never going to get to where I want to be, because of the system.
And yes, I know some folks on here do live super amazing green lives, that's great. but again, we can't all do that due to disability, lack of funds, not having the skills etc.
As for doing something like protesting, even if I felt that it wouldn't get wrecked by a few people who would cause things to get way out of hand, I can't afford to lose my job, as being blind, it's hard to get employed, even in the UK in 2019.
So what to do???
Sorry this is a huge rant and way off the original thread subject, but this has been building up for a few days now and I just need to get it out.
I guess the Fire gwers have really done some work!!!
Peace and best wishes,
