The Most Serious Obstacle to the Longterm Future of Humanity
The Protein Myth. Because of the mistaken, yet almost 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 perhaps our single most challenging issue. 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).
World Population, having tripled during my lifetime, stands at 7.71 billion, as of 6-13-19, and still adding a net 230,000 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.
Global Footprint Network sounds the alarm. They 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. For our own survival, we must soon learn how to live in harmony with nature.
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. For more information, visit my Speaking page.
