Chronicles of the Wayward Moot

WELCOME TO THE MOOT, oh world-wanderers and word-whisperers. After two years of Peace Corps. After 2,200 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail. What. Comes. Next?

Wonder why there's so much traffic these days when is wasn't so bad a few years ago?

Wonder why the establishment has been talking about feeding those starving millions for decades, but today the world still has starving millions?

Wonder why the amount of rainforest and wild savannah in the world was just perfectly acceptable a hundred years ago (and 200, and 500, and 1000 years ago, etc), but now there is ever-increasing pressure to destroy those resources and cultivate them?

Wonder what kind of future your children and their children might face, given the current paradigm?

EDUCATE YOURSELF!

Here's a link to a site that has a clear, decently researched primer on the growth of the human population, and I wish everyone I knew would watch it.  The presentation costs nothing but your time, and even if your religion contradicts it and you hate me for suggesting you watch it, at least you'll have something to chew on and debate me over.  I welcome dialogue on these topics.  OK, enough of me, take a look for yourself.  Click the link, and then click the blue box that says "World Food and Human Population Growth."
