The Earth is a biosphere, a living, life-supporting weather system that is now struggling to process the growing tons of pollution we humans dump into it every day. So, unless we safely recycle 100% of all our human-generated waste materials, the violent weather will get very much worse.

The ever-growing mass of 7 billion people all grow up wanting to drive a car or truck, but the Earth is not growing to provide endless tons of oil to be refined into gasoline, so that creates a scarcity which is why prices rise for any commodity. Peacefully reduce the human population with family planning education and convert to electric-powered vehicles, then there will be plenty of everything for a smaller and wiser population..

I agree. It's extremely ironic that astronomers discover another possibly living planet (600 light years away and out of reach) at exactly the time when we humans are on the brink of polluting our own planet to ecocide and extinction.
