This is a letter I submitted to the “Letters to the Editor” section of The Advertiser. It was published on 16th December, 2019.
Moira Newman (11/12) points out the elephant in the room, the huge over-population of the world. We can’t control over-population because no-one can find an acceptable and effective way of doing it. So Gaia – the Earth – will have to do it for herself, and it looks as though she’s planning to do it by global over-heating, with us humans helping along the way.
