    We ARE nature..with or without resources to survive..if we aren't respecting 'the wild', then we won't be worthy of anything wild..but humans aren't 'the opposite' to earth..we ARE animals..just need to find a way to live on it simultaneously sustaining ourselves(which includes complete bio chains). Earth will continue with or without us..either way.

    The grim reality is that we can't stop the next novel virus outbreak from happening, as this video showed. But we can stop the next novel outbreak from becoming a pandemic. But in order to do so, it's going to require co-operation from every country on the planet. Any country that has a novel outbreak with no treatment needs to lockdown immediately, and that includes suspending all international travel. While all other nations need to provide the affected nations with plenty of financial aid or assistance to ensure their economy doesn't collapse. We've seen that nations were able to defeat Covid-19 without a vaccine, just look at New Zealand, Australia and Taiwan. It's a far better solution than going into half baked quarantines for a year or two again while we wait for a vaccine.

    And what is the main reason for deforestation and land-use change? Growing crops to feed animals instead of people. A whole food plant-based diet for humanity, which of course starts with you, would solve many problems including global warming, hunger, and health issues, and let's not forget pandemics. So let's take personal responsibility and change ourselves instead of blaming others.

    Tuberculosis is a global pandemic such as the world has never seen. It has been for decades. Just last year 10 million cases were reported and 1.5 million died from it. ONE AND A HALF MILLION! That’s how many people die from it each year! EACH YEAR! It is the “most contagious disease in the history of mankind.” . It is spread from infected people talking, singing, laughing, sneezing, coughing or spitting. It is the most contagious pandemic in world history and has killed tens of million of people worldwide and is going on stronger than ever. . So, why were/are there no tuberculosis pandemic response demands from the WHO, CDC, governments, doctors, or the UN to wear masks, washing your hands? Where are the food shortages, toilet paper shortages, disinfectant shortages due to the tuberculosis pandemic? Where are the job losses, the shut downs, the layoffs because of tuberculosis pandemic? The quarantines, the social distancing because of tuberculosis? Tuberculosis has ALWAYS made flu-viruses like Covid-19 look like the sniffles. So what’s the big to do about Covid-19? New statistics are proving that even the elderly are not as high a risk as previously touted. . There are no knee-jerk reactions to the tuberculosis pandemic as with Covid -19 because masks and all of the above CANNOT STOP IT! In fact, herd mentality history indicates that those ‘preventative measures’ make it much worse. . Covid-19 is real but the toxicity is immensely exaggerated and the mortality rates are purposefully inflated for the sake of monetary greed within the medical profession and for the benefit of liberal politicians and their power grab. . For once, just once, people need to do their own research. There's an elephant in the room and it's called 'tuberculosis', and it’s exposing the lies about Covid.

    And this is why we shouldn't be allowing any debate or questions in the task of saving our planet. Put the laws in place and NEVER allow people to abolish them. Earth does not care about you, your family, your fame, your money, your wants or dreams. You are nothing in the grand scheme of things and so your opinion on saving the ONLY home we have is not worth much. But of course, those with money don't care and know they won't be alive long enough to face the consequences of their greed.
