> 4. Lack of arable land. At a certain point people won’t be able to grow enough food to feed the world.
A) there's plenty of land. The problem is too freakin' many people
B) a great deal of formerly-arable land is covered by the cities those excess people are roosting in.
"I need some more room in this-here tree, I'll just saw this branch off..."
> 5. Antibiotic resistant diseases.
Mostly from CRIMINALLY negligent misapplication of antibiotics. From "I feel better, so I won't take the full course of pills" to things like antibiotic-coated trash bags. All you're doing is selecting for resistant bacteria by killing off the weak ones instead of all of them.
Survival of the fittest. You're Darwin's bitch.
> 6. Chemical poisoning of the water ways.
Yeah. The EPA has its own freakin' SWAT teams, and aircraft, and satellite time, and fleets of trucks with lab equipment. They claim they can detect the effluent of ONE crackhead pissing into a river, but they can't trace massive dumping of exotic chemicals.
I have this bridge for sale...
> 7. Fresh water scarcity.
I can get to water with my bare hands. Fresh water is not an issue where I live. But when you build your human ant farm in a temperate desert, and suck water out of four surrounding states trying to support it, yeah, I guess you can feel a pinch. Too many people in the wrong location.
> 12. Pharmacentical poisoning of humans.
And forgetting to use the spall chequer.
> 15. Expansions of human settlements into known disaster areas.
In California, it's your Constitutional right to build your McMansion on a dirt cliff, then watch it slide down to wreckage when it rains. Hey, your insurance will pay for it, plus a hefty amount extra since real estate prices are always going up!
What moron zoning commissions and building inspectors are involved with this? To do it MULTIPLE times on the same site? And are they going to share the graft money with the rest of us?
> 18. Over populating urban areas worldwide.
I think I mentioned that.
> 39. People’s lack of convictions.
Looking at the prison population, not hardly. Oh, you mean "convictions" as in "conviction that the world owes them a new house and a Cadillac?" We have no shortage of that, either.
> 40. Indifference and falling apart of the family unit.
Family units are doing fine. One mother, one grandmother, one social worker, one Child Safety worker, one parole officer.
The 21st century nuclear family.
