    Lets get to the real point. the land use and so on is all due to the amount of people on the planet! overpopulation is the problem! This is going to keep building until we (people) start dying off in mass numbers. If we don"t make hard choices we will suffer mass losses. This is fact not fiction. The solution is less births, less babies. meaning we would need to de-fund birth. IE pay for abortions and not pay any more discounts for more then one kid. this is a hard change but it needs to happen to lower people count. I would bet that you will see mass deaths before you see limiting births. We will have the babies and then kill them off and the planet as well. He is now talking state fairs but lets get real john

    Consider this, Howard Hughes, who had major OCD about germs and infections, had just become a teenager during the 1918 Spanish flu outbreak. Still think he was an obsessive compulsive madman?

  • L

    The same things were said about the 1918 Spanish flu, but were soon forgotten again. Things to do are, reducing human environment contact surfaces. Encourage hand washing. Take cold and coughing symptoms in the work place and on public transport more seriously.

    During WW2 lots of people became vegetarians, not because of ethics, but because it was much more efficient use of the land than keeping animals for meat. They pretty much had to use an entire south American country for beef production during that war. If we are going to keep increasing our population then we will have to change our habits and start to rely on local efficient farming produce.

  • Chandir

    Obviously we need to stop squeezing thousands of animals into small areas. If we want another huge pandemic asap all we need to do is keep doing what we're already doing. GO VEGAN it's the only way!

    Let me see if I got this right: I am almost 53 years old, so I have spent over half a century on this planet without ever even hearing about "plandemics" or, if I heard about, they were no cause for paranoid hysteria; but now these fools would like to have me believe that the rest of my life, however long this might be, will be an endless succession of consecutive "plandemics"????!!!! You are evidently underestimating people's capacity for free and critical thinking (and, based on what's been happening lately, you seem to be right to treat people as idiots). We have ALWAYS lived surrounded by coronaviruses, as well as strains of influenza, pneumonia, etc. Why should this NOW become a problem?

      You know, people like you are the issue. There have always been pandemics, and there always will be, and they will always be as awful as this one, because for all our great achievements and collective smarts, some of us, such as yourself, still battle with this simple notion: You're not god's chosen creation, you're not the ruler of this planet, you're part of it. Stop thinking you're outside of the food chain, or next time it will be worse.
