and as our numbers rise the probability of a great human dying becomes more and more likely. Climate change will make this significantly more likely. Not an extinction event I think but it will be well beyond anything our species has ever experienced.
Maybe if we can build a planetary awareness then we could find a sustainable solution and adapt and change enough to support the currently large and exponentially growing human population. I'm unfortunately very skeptical that we will be able to maintain our current state and certainly not without a dramatic awakening that recognizes our precarious situation.
