This, is right up there with the fact that we send shrimps caught in the North Sea to China to be peeled before they are shipped home to the supermarkets.

Just heard that we are about to clock seven BILLION people on this little rock we call home. That is a BILLION more than in 1999. And it is not slowing down, eight billion is just around the corner and I’m sure that this jump will be faster than from six to seven billion.
With flying everything around the globe to make it easier for ourself is not going to float for longer. The natural resources, space and pollution with come to a head as we grow in numbers and Earth will win this battle.
