    [–] Global insect collapse ‘catastrophic for the survival of mankind’ | Humans are on track to wipe out insects within decades, study finds. d00dsm00t 1 points ago in worldnews

    We need our higher intelligence, but we also need to evolve beyond or most basic primitive instincts of resource hoarding and fascination with shiny things.

    It kept us alive in the wild, but now it's killing us.

    Q: How do we fix it?

    A: We just need to change the entire way we run our modern economies, and do it within a few years

    Q: Do you think that can happen?

    A: Not a chance in hell

    I hear what you're saying, and I basically agree with the general principle. I have zero faith in humanity as a whole at this point. But even then, I'm not going down doing the wrong thing. It may all be for not, but there's no honor in giving up.

    The thing is, I learned that in basic high school science. You don't have to be a scientist to have learned how this stuff works. Studies aren't about confirming something. You present a hypothesis and see what happens. If your conclusions tell you something different than what your hypothesis is, that's not wrong. It doesn't mean you failed. You got an answer. That's the whole point.

    They absolutely, fundamentally don't understand that. It's why they hate science, as proper studies are unbiased and don't give a shit about what they want.

    [–] World on track to miss emissions ‘turning point’ for tackling climate change | The world is not on track to meet the greenhouse gas “turning point” required to avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change, experts have warned d00dsm00t 2 points ago in worldnews

    Even if we took after those responsible, which I'd love to do, anybody think they're not prepared? A lot of the richest fucks in the world are already preparing their bunkers and escape routes. When it all goes to hell they'll disappear with their security teams and helicopters and avoid any consequence, outside of the dollar they worshiped and hoarded and sold us down the river for will be worth fuck all I guess.

    [–] The world’s insects are hurtling down the path to extinction, threatening a “catastrophic collapse of nature’s ecosystems”, according to the first global scientific review. More than 40% of insect species are declining and a third are endangered, the analysis found. d00dsm00t 1 points ago in Futurology

    And do you see why I compared us to bacteria? You seem to agree with me.

    On that point? Hardly.

    We're smarter than bacteria, I mean, does that have to be said? But we also aren't as special and brilliant and we like to think. Smart enough to create some amazingly comfortable 1st world conditions, but too stupid to realize how truly primitive and vulnerable we are.

    Classic Thrash with a modern mix. Sounds really clean. Love that. Vocals are great. Reminds me a bit of Dungeon Bastards.

    It's a pretty far stretch to boast about the genius of humans and then compare us to bacteria. Bacteria doesn't know any better. We're supposed to know better. We tout our excellence, our marvels, our brilliance, our superiority over all that resides on earth. But we fail to keep our egos in check. We're all just one fucked up domino away from returning to the wild. We talk about population control in every other species, except for our own. We take and take and take and take. Our intelligence is truly our own worst enemy, in my limited human opinion.

    Maybe our impending doom will be the impetus for us to get into space?

    I don't know that we're close enough to have a space colony without earth being able to be the command center. Sure, we can put people up there. But without organization here, they're dead anyways.

    culminating in the greatest animal intelligence ever to exist on Earth

    So damn smart, yet we can't coexist with the rest of the animal kingdom. Just a bunch of apes with big brains, even bigger egos, that worship ghosts, and seem hell bent on killing themselves because we've incorrectly convinced ourselves we are superior.

    the only life ever to gain the ability to spread life and consciousness outside the confines of Earth?

    The window for this is closing pretty rapidly. When food chains collapse are we going to keep building spaceships?
