Remark: American and British scientists submitted an official report to the National Academy of Sciences of the United States that the Earth will become unfit for life by 2200-2400, regardless of the estimated decline in population growth by 2100.
Experts point to the danger of climate change, unavoidable due to the increase in energy consumption, which will continue even with the greenhouse gas emission reduction into the atmosphere. In addition, there are other global risks. (Kathmandu Tribune) Following in the same direction, Stephen Hawking has recently suggested finding a new home for humanity in space. (NBC News)
My Comment: The problem is that such projects are unrealistic. People are inextricably linked with this planet by an invisible “umbilical cord.” We are a single whole, we are intertwined with it with an infinite number of threads and we cannot function without it.
But let’s say, for example, that we moved to Mars. What happens next? We will pollute it or squeeze out all of its resources, just as we did with the Earth. And besides, we will face personal and social problems because having changed the place of residence, we would not have changed our nature. So, what will we do? Will we roam from planet to planet escaping ourselves? It won’t help.
We bring death around us because this is our nature. “Death” is the egoism that wants to devour everything. It enjoys that it destroys everything around. We will not survive on any planet. After all, we do not know how to take into account the global nature and its basic laws.
We take into account only what is beneficial and convenient for us. This very attitude is already destructive for the Earth because it poisons the common planetary system.
The negative charge of egoism is what really shakes the noosphere. Growing imbalances in society, among people, undermine the balance in everything. What is the future preparing for us? In the worst case, after going through the hardest suffering—up to nuclear winter and other anti-utopian “delights”—we will finally realize the need to get rid of egoism.
Then people will finally rise above their egoistic nature and correct this Earth, ceasing to pollute and ruin it in all kinds of ways. After all, the Earth has great regenerative potential. It can recover if people stop harming it and if they accept the laws of nature that establish interaction, harmony, and homeostasis.
In other words, having risen above egoism, we will be as if on another planet, which heals the wounds and relates to us benevolently. Then we would not have to go anywhere. We will find that if we give up self-love, then everything will serve our prosperity. And there is only one question left: Why not do it right now?
