He’s seen the change and he hasn’t retired from campaigning because he knows and he’s wise and he cares. And most people now don’t value what matters. Just because day to day they don’t see it. It’s sad. The things he’s seen!

  • There are many Thinking people today who want answers like David who Love our planet and study lifes complexitys,it does however show does it not that Man is unable to rule ourselves? Therefore unless we Develop a Love of God and neighbor as Gods word teaches, are we not heading in the wrong direction?Revelation Chapter 11:15-18 reveals that His established Kingdom would Bring to ruin those ruining the earth,or as other translations say, destroy those destroying the earth we live on, is that not what Jesus taught us to pray for in Prayer ,for God's Kingdom, or Government to Come ,Is that not a Good Hope ,which is not far away?💓👍🙏😍

  • Human is just not Earth animal, is earth builder and combiner, and we stay quite without pretend to "have sex" and that's a so bad think... I pray for having a lady with me without need to go alone every night, instead people think of this more and more power, with arrogance and pretending being treated as masters and teachers... We let PC comunicate more than humans... And we base our future on being prepared for anythink thanks to scientists that are also divided by "need of being considered" as all people... We are apparently prove things by traditions and these maximum some month of good behaviour, but in fact we are not curious people, just interested of things... As Phisics also pscycology have no more words to describe and to proove others what's trully happen... I'm sorry Mr. David, I hope this planet will be less stupid, because the only solution is to don't let "underscored" people to add more stupidity... Either to reduce some videogames, and more footbal, tennis, baskets, and any other movement of body in this planet... More we stay without moving more we leave the planet without being on it living... That's it, plus some "medics" don't say young go learn this and this sport looser... They prefer doing experiments or what? I was everytime moving me, and instead a lot of bones broked I feel a lot energic and without so much agony as I should express being of remembrance of my child movement liberty of body... I hope bad people just die without a home, that's all.. I'm 25 but I just "walked" till moon and back as I moved in my still now own life... That's folk... Someone think they will live in ipocrisy and asks till they discovery something genial... Anyway, I hope for the entropy space density to don't overpass the ozone one and the internal magma one... even if, I think that will be just more and more "earthquakes" because earth is also a glue as, electrons to air, complex molecoles to magma, and so go on, till photons to univers... I hope just people will start immagine more and more combination of their substance they are made, than to scam each other...

  • Nature has found in man's error the cure for the worst parasite that ever inhabited the planet. A matter of time... time that the Planet has to recover from the chemotherapy. Man does not have this time. While we wage war to promote peace... our greed and selfishness have evolved into atomic energy. And the intelligence of nature... was to use it against the disease called "Human". Just a simple fire in Chernobyl...or a slight earthquake in Fukushima...some kind of ripple... Nature has learned that the best way is to use what we have invented. The same way nature is blamed for earthquakes caused by nuclear tests...even those killed because of religious war. But time...time is the only human disadvantage. The great problem of humans... was inventing the money to survive. Even a parasite can perpetuate its own species when the host body is dying. time for that...we have no more. Also, there is no option to "buy" another planet Earth. The only solution is in radiation. Either quickly and efficiently by a stupid war or as nature is doing with its environmental tragedies. slow and progressive contamination of the globe. If it were just a single nation on a single planet...we might have some chance of survival...but we are human. We respect cultural differences, but we do not respect the basics to ensure the survival of each. We create borders, but we pollute air and water. We proclaim ourselves the most intelligent...or do we believe we are...are we? Recently we have been protesting against our own civic evolution. Under the threat of a pandemic...imminent war...widespread corruption and disorder. The world and its misfortunes just can't be solved because they don't want to. It generates profit to keep the difference. In the same way that our evolution has been exploiting natural and fossil resources to have a collection and make it dependent. You don't pay the energy bill for the sun...and neither does the they have not evolved. same thing with magnetism... Why?! invent something that doesn't generate a monthly bill or dependency? That is to be human. We cry out for family...but we don't respect the huge family we are inhabiting the planet...?!?! We cry for life and love... but we kill to see it fall. Our plastic rubbish is worse than radiation... Nature is crying out for our extinction. and we are working hard on it.

  • So sad, when I was in kindergarten we did "collecting field trips" every friday. We would go on class walks/bus trips to parks with our reusable bags and collect stuff we thought was cool. When we got back we would write a sentence about them. Sadly the adventures stopped years ago, it was those adventures I grown my love for buckeyes. Small things like that can build so much love for nature in children and of course the god Sir David himself.

  • He fails to point out that almost all the soy grown is fed to livestock. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation in the Amazon. We need to avoid animal products and products containing palm oil. Animal agriculture is also the leading cause of water consumption and water pollution. Very strange how carefully he skirted around the issue of animal agriculture. The single biggest thing you can do for the planet is to a adopt a fully plant based diet.

Realisation, quantification is really important for us all to make an informed decision. Livestock agriculture is what I wanted to hear but didn't get a mention. Please deepen the explanation because I'm sure please will listen to you even if they don't like what you are asking for.

  • We have to end capitalism. There is no other way. International agreements will not work because each government is serving their own bourgeoisie or the imperialist at charge, and the capitalist class don't give a fuck about nature, life, no matter if it's wild life or human life or any life, they are planning world wars just to keep capturing surplus value and profiting of nature depredation - wars allow to distract the working class and derive class warfare into world workers killing each other... Will Monsanto and Chevron save our planet? Will Bayer, Barrick Gold and the IMF saver our planet? We live under the capitalist regime, and this is our situation: the actual disaster is the work of the capitalist class. We can't solve it whereas the capitalist class (that "1%") keeps in power, we have to abolish private property of means of production, of great lands, of water and earth, it's the planet we live on, no one can be the owner of our common planet. We have to abolish human exploitation. We need that we, the immense majority of the world, the working class, govern by its own. Not for a communist ideology, just for survival, to avoid convert the only planet full of life know in the universe in an uninhabitable dead waste land.
