    This video is just telling us why the population is growing so fast but it's not mentioning the problems it causes...What about natural mass extinction, trash, climate change, resources, nature destruction, water problems etc....???

    More people also means more deforestation to farm animals, more consumption of water, of electricity, more traffic on the roads and through the air (which means more air pollution, more greenhouse gasses), more phones and televisions to be produced (which means more mining for rare metals). In other words: even more threats to biodiversity on earth and an even bigger challenge to combat climate change. I think this video fails to paint an accurate picture of the actual threats deriving from the unparalleled numbers of people that will be walking around on the planet in the next couple of decades.

    I am a patron. But now that i see ya'll are bought by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, or at least sponsoring--I think I'll quit. This is really sad, to think that Bill Gates is a good guy is sad, this youtube channel has lost their way. I fucking hate this.

    This was a lovely video. But I'm still a bit concerned about overpopulation in a context of pollution, over-consumption and waste.
