The beauty of the sky, flying home from Seoul, Korea – Environmental loading 19

Coming to terms with ourselves the human primate

First, we need to understand that we are one species. Then we have to understand what happens over time and that there are limits to how many of any one species the Earth can support at any one time. That applies to microbes through roses to the human monkey. That especially applies to the human monkey as we invent more and more “things” that use ever more of the planet’s finite resources. So there’s a finite number of us that can live at one time if we all lived in a natural fibres tent and ate salads, fruits and nuts and there’s a lot lower number that can live at any one time if we want a highly developed and mobile civilisation if and it’s a big if, we want equality. For anyone with a developed mind equality should be as much an essential part of our species future as sustainability must be. We can’t have it all.

It’s complicated

It started in all probability with modern humans and us walking out of Africa if you follow the Recent African Origin of Homo Sapiens. Maybe we could consider these common ancestors as the first ones to migrate. Over the time since then various groups of people have moved on for one reason or another. Up until very recently once people migrated away that would have been the last time that family members would have been in contact with each other. Air travel changed all that and made migration that much easier but at a deadly cost to the environment and one that is not sustainable in terms of of CO2 emissions, pollution and resources use. It doesn’t scale up to 7,800,000,000 human primates growing at 80,000,000 every 365 days. The problem is that many people have migrated, married and the like and now have families on different continents with the ability to physically be in contact with each other but this is far away from being a sustainable arrangement. 17th October 2017.
