Fear of Ambiguity

Our chronic discomfort with ambiguity — which, ironically, is critical to both our creativity and the richness of our lives — leads us to lock down safe, comfortable, familiar interpretations, even if they are only partial representations of or fully disconnected from reality.
~ Maria Popova (born: 1984 age: 30)

Overpopulation: the root of all problems

population elephant

Climate change, energy depletion, food shortages, resource wars, species extinction — these are not the problem, they are only the symptoms. The singular root problem that causes all these horrifying threats to mankind is overpopulation.

So — logically — the solution that will eliminate these threats is simply to reduce the population of humans on this planet to a sustainable number.

Yet, no one proposes this obvious solution. No one is even willing to discuss it.

It is the elephant in every room.
