This Site is ALL about Promoting Health. For Ourselves. For Our Planet. For our Future.
Posted below; my latest (11-17-17) presentation re Sustainability. ( J. Morris Hicks Bio)
My primary focus these days is ARCH, a new 4Leaf initiative aimed at helping self-insured employers everywhere save money; i.e., the acronym, “Automatically Reducing the Cost of Healthcare.” Introduction to ARCH
What is your number? That is the title of a BSB (Bite-Size Blog) about the 4Leaf Survey: how to take it online, how to find the online report for your level and how to share it with others. Click on the image at right for more info on “Bite-Size” Blogs.
Our #1 Sustainability Problem: Overpopulation. Want to clearly see what’s happened to the world’s population since the time of Christ? Watch this 5-minute video as it traces human population from a few million to the 9 billion projected by 2050. Each yellow dot represents one million humans, and by the year 2000, it looks like the entire world is “on fire” as our we add almost 3 billion people during the last five seconds (from 2000 to 2050).
The good folks at the Global Footprint Network have concluded that our planet can only sustain indefinitely, a population of 2 billion people at the lifestyle of the average European. Clearly we have a huge problem on our hands, with no solution in sight.
World Population, having tripled during my lifetime, stands at 7.57 billion, as of 10-17-17, and still adding a net 220,000 new mouths to feed every single day. See dynamic World Population in real time. The U.N. projects we’ll have ten billion people by 2056.
Things that we value most—family, health, freedom, happiness, friends, peace and wealth—do not exist without sustainability. In other words, if we don’t quickly learn how to live in harmony with nature, life will be nothing more than a hell on Earth for those few of us who survive. —J. Morris Hicks
SUSTAINABILITY is Paramount. I write about it in my blogs, I talk about it in interviews and it is featured prominently in my public speaking. In my role as a sustainability activist, one of my favorite speech titles is: SUSTAINABILITY. Ecology. Civilization. Humans. For more information, visit my Speaking page.
