Kerstin wrote she supports Speak Out because…. “Simple. We are to many. We destroy and break down the natural resources which are needed as a support for our survival on the earth. Life can be supported only by living systems. The technological processes help to break down, they cannot build up the living systems. Life supports life, A large population (large number) wants a better life, which means that we destroy the basis of our lifes…. Biodiversity, water, forests, insects such as bees and other pollinator are needed. Chemicals, GMO, are not needed. They destroy nature. We have less than 2000 square meter (0,2 ha) arable land each for producing all we need of food and other stuff grown on farmland. I myself is a animal husbandry geneticist. And I am a specialist in honeybee breeding and related questions and I often discuss questions concerning overpopulation, and the simple thing is that we all will die within 100 years or less, and the question thus concerns the number of babies per woman. The number is 2 per woman, and population will reach a steady state. With smaller number the population will decrease, and with higher number it will grow, fast. Even with 2,1 child per woman it grows fast! Thank you.” She notes she always speaks out all the time anyway, so fulfilling her pledge will be a piece of cake.
There are many ways to participate! Together, we can raise awareness and bring about change.
