does protecting environment hiders progress
Thank you for this debate.
Let me just say, I like nature as much as the next guy. Nature is beautiful . Going hiking in Canada is amazing.
However, nature isn't as important as you think. Trees themselves can be replanted. Lakes can be man made, and so can rivers. Trees can be planted on top of skyscrapers and on top of apartments, in the flat section of the roof. Nature is expendable, and in today's society, think about how many people DONT care about nature. Technology is influencing society down a more virtual road. The future of humanity is not nature, but virtual reality.
If you're upset about animals, think about how many of these animals are hostile towards humans. Bears, wolves, lions, vultures, and think about what would happen if dinosaurs were still about. Animals are by default, either hostile towards us or afraid of us. They serve no purpose other than either being part of our families as pets, or as resources.
Bushes, grass, shrubs, all can be recreated, especially so in a virtual reality.
"By the 2030s, the nonbiological portion of our intelligence will predominate."
"In canda there are" is a typo so pelase ignore that.
This goes back to what I said. We don't need to protect water, we need to move along with research. Lower the population. It is the POPULATION that requires thinning. Governments are trying to be politically corrrect by letting the population continue to grow. Earth is on the verge of collapse because there are not enough resources to go around. By lowering the population we can continue to harvest nature as we see fit and still stay alive as a species. That's all I have to say.
