“ECOCIDE = ECO (environmental) + CIDE (killing or harming something)
;the act of harming the environment”
There are less than 19 years before we run out of clean water. Didn’t that scare you enough?
There are less than 9 years before we run out of oil.
There are less than 39 years before we run out of natural gas.
There are less than 40 years before we have food shortage.
There are less than 80 years before the World becomes too hot to live in.
None of the above is made a possibility because of natural causes. Humans exploited the precious resources on Earth. We’ve shot ourselves in the foot, and, if we keep going like this, our planet will be uninhabitable. Why not stop the ecocide* and act before it’s too late? We are ALL responsible.
We are ALL running out of oil
We are ALL running out of natural gas
We are ALL going to have a food shortage
And, we won’t be able to find clean water to drink, after this countdown ends
