S.O.S. Memos (Saving Our Species). Leveraging the most famous distress signal in the world, I distribute a weekly memo aimed at promoting the sustainability of our civilization and our species. You can access all previous memos and join our mailing list at S.O.S. Memos.
One Enormous, Yet Easily Removed, Barrier to the Long-term Sustainability of the Human Species
I call it the Protein Myth and describe it here:
Because of the mistaken, yet ubiquitous, belief that humans actually “need” to eat animal protein to be healthy—a host of incredibly powerful, plant-based solutions to the world’s most serious health, hunger and sustainability crises never even make it to the table for consideration.
For this reason, I consider this “protein myth” to be the single most serious obstacle to the longterm future of humanity. For if we cannot take the “animal out of the equation” when it comes to feeding humans, we will never learn to live in harmony with nature; thereby placing the future of our civilization (and even our species) in serious jeopardy.
Overpopulation continues as one of our most challenging issues. 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 our population on the world map 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).
World Population, having tripled during my lifetime, now stands at 7.75 billion, as of 12-12-19, and we’re still adding a net 226,000 new mouths to feed every single day. See dynamic World Population in realtime. The U.N. projects a global population of ten billion by 2056.
