    Breeding starts at home. I hope you've exercised restraint for the planet's sake.

      I think over populating is fact but not as big as we the human cutting the trees, vanishing the forests, just to make another building, or producing woods from the trees.

      Tree is a very important to keep air and environment clean. But nowadays we're seeing huge cutting of trees to make space for another commercial building, shopping mall, or a Golf yard.

                China has a one family, one child policy.
                What do you think of that, too PC, too leftist?

                  The one-child policy has been dropped if memory serves but more alarming than that failure is the Social Credit system. Genuine Orwellian bad news.
                  God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

                    After coughing his lungs out for quite a while, a friend recently passed away from a respiratory illness in bkk. I take antihistamines before working out at the gym to control post-nasal drip aggravated by automobile pollution. I have 2 air purifiers running whenever I'm home. Cocktail hour on the balcony is limited to a once-a-week maybe. Such is my life in the only location in this tropical paradise that I would choose to live in. I understand the air in Nakhon Nowhere is cleaner, but the bugs, the snakes, the lack of services, and...the neighbors make such a move unlikely. *cough*...still, there are worse places to die.

                      Generally speaking, yes! (outside the burning season)

                      but the bugs, the snakes, the lack of services, and...the neighbors make such a move unlikely.
                      Prejudiced much?
                      Most 'bugs' don't do anything to you - two weeks ago was the first time I was stung by a dten, didn't see it. Rarely come across snakes.
                      Neighbours - some are friendly, some ok, some idiots and unpleasant folks around. None speak English.

                        a) Prejudiced much?
                        b) Most 'bugs' don't do anything to you - two weeks ago was the first time I was stung by a dten, didn't see it. Rarely come across snakes.
                        Neighbours - some are friendly, some ok, some idiots and unpleasant folks around. None speak English.
                        a) I prefer selective: personal preference determines much of what all of us do...b) mosquitoes and flies are quite enough, thanks. No vermin of any kind here on the 35th floor. I must say, you don't offer a very persuasive argument for moving deeper into the swamp...

                              The above sites do not show lesser sites that are contaminated which are/might be polluting groundwater today.
