          The Planet Technopolitana idea is based on the observation that the earth's resources are finite. The impact of 1,000,000,000 humans is less than the impact of 2,000,000,000.
          And a lot less than the current approx 7,300,000,000 up 7 times since 1900.
         If this sounds obvious, I propose that it can lead to tricky questions.

          FOR EXAMPLE -- humankind in relation to the environment:
              If we cut down a tree or trees to make a field in which to grow wheat, what rights do the cut trees & the species that live on and with them have in relation to those who cut them?
           Any? or Some?
If in doubt, extrapolate to cutting all the trees on the planet. When do trees have rights?

Environmental Positivism & Good News?


Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction. You are capable of more than you know. We should preserve every scrap of biodiversity as priceless while we learn to use it and come to understand what it means to humanity - E.O. Wilson .....or see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._O._Wilson + multiple other web references & his books.

Canary Warf London -- How many cities, how many cranes, how much land for 'development'?
The eminent American environmentalist, E.O. Wilson, says half the world should be reserved for non human use.

All nature when examined closely is the result of millions of years of evolution. Does this constitute a miracle?
