‘The world is just not a bowl of fruit from which we will simply take what we want’
Effectively, it was, when our inhabitants was sufficiently small. However, like each different species on the market, we predict “extra of us is nice” with out a lot severe reflection.
That is not fully our fault, it is in our genes to be a “profitable” species. We simply occur to be sensible sufficient to be “too profitable”, whereas maybe not sensible sufficient to simply accept the implications and do one thing about it.
However that is okay too. Finally evolution will provide you with a species that may be each very smart and sustainable throughout the world ecosystem. May take just a few tries although.. in any case, homo sapiens is barely the primary strive.
I say give meerkats just a few million years and see what occurs.
