Petition update

Jane Goodall zur Überbevölkerung / Jane Goodall about overpopulation

"Es ist sehr frustrierend, dass sich die Menschen nicht mit diesem Thema beschäftigen wollen", sagte die 75-Jährige. Das Bevölkerungswachstum sei für "jedes einzelne" Problem des Planeten mitverantwortlich. "Wenn es nur wenige von uns geben würde, dann wären die bösen Sachen, die wir machen, egal, und Mutter Erde würde das allein erledigen - aber wir sind so viele", ergänzte Goodall. Deshalb müsse über eine Begrenzung des Bevölkerungswachstums nachgedacht werden.

“It’s our population growth that underlies just about every single one of the problems that we’ve inflicted on the planet. If there were just a few of us, then the nasty things we do wouldn’t really matter and Mother Nature would take care of it — but there are so many of us.”
