Almost all people are playing ostrich.
People continue to pop out babies, travel, eat animals, hunt and fish, mine and log, use leaf blowers and other machine toys, consume, pollute and party like there’s no tomorrow.
It’s not just world leaders. It’s humans in general who ignore anthropogenic mass extinction.
You may stick your head in the sand, but you can still get kicked in the butt !
