Because of seemingly endless, incredible greed, sense-bound materialism, and stupidity, the natural world is dying a long and horrible death. For example, the corral reefs, providing natural habitats for countless marine life are deteriorating. The coral reefs are dying because oceans are growing increasingly acidic as they try to absorb more and more Co2. 90% of the fish have already been removed due to generations of overfishing. There is also an ever growing problem with plastic pollution causing gigantic floating garbage sites in every ocean such as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which is twice the size of Texas. Even worse, the ice caps are disappearing while oceans are rising causing islands in the pacific to flood over during storms and to be inundated by salty water where there used to be only fresh water.
The vital lungs of the Earth are being sawed off; millions of acres of sacred old growth forests are clear-cut all around the world by lumber companies who have no idea the long-term devastation and grief they are causing. Thousands and thousands of vital herbs and vital plant species are being lost every day to the utterly irresponsible use of fire to clear land for more beef, sugar cane, palm oil, and tobacco. The global loss of deep forests and plants is devastating not only on a vast scale, but also on a subtle level as more and more immune system enhancing pollens and spiritually uplifting fragrances disappear from Gaia's atmosphere. Mother Earth's atmosphere was only a few hundred years ago extremely pure, clear and fragrant, full of life, energy, zest, and prana. Unfortunately this beautiful atmosphere is slowly fading away into a horrible soup of toxic soots, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane gases, and nuclear "fallout" waste from blown-out nuclear reactors.
Housing and the land for it to exist on is becoming harder and harder to find, while fossil fuel prices keep going up and up through the roof. The planet's atmosphere is becoming more and more depleted of vital, life-giving oxygen because of the existence of more and more gas-guzzling vehicles, coal-burning factories, and filthy-air creating electrical generation plants.
Even the global economy is collapsing because of ever increasing shortages of natural resources, mineral rich, fertile lands, and natural, whole organic health-giving food. Even all sorts of metals are becoming rarer and rarer as the earths crust is being over mined, destroying vast areas of natural habitat and vital forests. Stimulus packages, bank bail-outs, printing more money and increasing taxes will only temporarily patch the problem at best and greatly exasperate the problem further down the time-track. As the U. S. dollar finally loses its global value as a major currency, massive inflation will cause a tusnami of financial destruction throughout America and the rest of the world.
These and many related problems are only going to get worse and worse until their single and most obvious underlying cause is properly addressed. If not addressed in an intelligent manner, then all hell will eventually break loose as entire economies collapse and billions of people start food shortage riots and become severely ill from not having enough clean water to drink. Also rising oceans will inundate millions and millions of square miles of heavily populated low-lying land.
Unfortunately, these and similar problems are never or only rarely treated at the level of their underlying cause. Like the doctor who prescribes only drugs to cover up the patient's symptoms, the underlying cause is often ignored or just "pasted over" to only come up again as even more serious disease further down the road. Governments around the world typically work this way, and wonder why the problem or problems only escalate into something else even more awful and far-reaching.
OBVIOUSLY Nearly all the world's problems and shortages, etc. are caused by the ridiculously high rate at which human beings are reproducing. As humans begat children, and then their children begat even more children, and so on… populations throughout the poorest nations on Earth skyrocket exponentially resulting in multitudes of people lost in dire poverty, starving, and suffering all manner of horrible diseases. This insanity must stop, and it must stop now!!!
The best way I know of to prevent overpopulation is to practice a lifetime of celibacy or some form of transmuted sexual expression that avoids the loss of vital sexual fluid. Unfortunately, no one seems to be able to control their impulses, and it can be rather challenging to educate everyone well-enough as to why and how to redirect and transmute sexual impulses for a higher expression. Convincing enough people of the the amazing benefits of living a pure, Spirit-centered lifestyle simply would be impossible for the vast majority of sense-bound humanity to follow, let alone fully comprehend. The only other alternative is some form of birth control, however MOST UNFORTUNATELY some of the largest religious organizations in the world unrealistically condemn birth control as being a "sin" or somehow against the commandment of God, "Be fruitful and multiply."
Our situation is similar to a crowded life boat in the middle of an oceanic universe. Here we have a tiny boat being tossed and turned by the mighty waves of an infinite ocean, and then some people aboard this tiny boat decide to do what? Create more children?! "Oh yeh, there's plenty more room on the boat!" Then obviously as more and more children are being created, the boat gradually gets more and more unstable or top heavy, while the water level all around it goes higher and higher, until one day, a critical tipping point is reached… capsizing the boat with all of humanity drowning inside it, simply because too many individuals had participated in the process of creating too many children far too soon. Similarly, global warming will cause the oceans to rise and flood all our coastal towns and cities where most of the world's population has and will continue to reside in ever-increasing numbers.
Populations should only produce enough children to replace those who have died, and not a smidgen more! Obviously, all women around the world need fast and easy access not only to all methods and means of birth control, but also education and self-empowerment both spiritually and economically. They all need to be given the right to choose whether or not to create more children, as too many mothers are locked in a terrible and vicious cycle of dire poverty, lack of education, and no access to birth control whatsoever and other reproductive health services.
