Guilt Assuager

Some say that the bad things we do
Kill nature—it might not pull through;
To deal with the guilt,
I say, that’s how we’re built,
And we’re part of nature too.

Behavior that’s not up to par
Did not cause this mass au revoir:
We’re still just a niche
In nature’s world, which
Evolved us to be what we are.

Our world is about to combust
For reasons we might think unjust;
Nature’s causal chain
Helps to explain
Why the universe moves as it must. 


  1. Despite institutional denial inside and outside the scientific community regarding the ecological science of human population dynamics, The AWAREness Campaign on The Human Population was founded in 2001. Since that moment I have seen it as a moral imperative to continue the work I’ve been doing for many years now: getting the message out and explaining to as many people as possible that human overpopulation of the Earth is occurring on our watch, that it poses profound existential risks for future human well being, life as we know it and environmental health, and that robust action is required starting here, starting now to honestly acknowledge, humanely address and eventually overcome.

  2. Good to see you. Thanks for stopping by!
