For those arguing elsewhere about the CO2 levels..

“At current emission rates it is possible we will pass the critical level of 450 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere by 2040. That’s the level when, it is generally agreed, global climate change may become catastrophic and irreversible,” they add.“At that point we can expect to see the loss of most of our coral reefs and the arctic seas.”

The ocean is the biggest imaginable biological treatment facility for sewage and agricultural waste. Raw sewage is a problem because it becomes locally concentrated. For the ocean as a whole, there are other problems. Plastic garbage, driftnets, overfishing, bottom trawling, acidification for just a few.

Which mostly come down, again, to waste and greed.

Maybe the planet is overpopulated, maybe it isn't.

One thing is certain, a time will come, sooner or later, when mankind becomes an extinct species, along with all other animal life on Earth.
It will be decided naturally, not by a puny two legged species with an average life expectancy of 66 years.
