Previously, I offered my opinion on why the whole "going green" thing was a bit futile and most people just didn’t get my logic. I’m hoping today you’ll agree with a solution I’m proposing.
Now, let’s be clear about one thing (I’m sure we’ll all agree on this point), that evolution is evolution and it dictates the species that survive or don’t. That’s plain and simple, right?
We can’t get all upset about Mother Nature doing what she does best, killing off the weaker and dying species.
I know it’s a sensitive point for a lot of folk around the world, but no use crying over spilt milk when our planet is just auto-correcting and adjusting as it’s always done.
I’m no scientist or biologist and don’t really understand chromozones and enzymes and how cells grow and evolve to new animals, but there is some science to all this if you understand it and if you do you’ll agree with my thinking here.
So the question I ask today is this:
Can we fight against evolution to ensure the survival of species that we wish to save?
It’s a good question once you think about it.
The way I see it, we have 2 options:
1 – We allow nature to take its course and take lots of photos and film footage of species that are on their way out so that we can educate our children and their children one day.
2 – We roll up our sleeves and mankind gets hostile and declares a kind of peaceful war on Mother Nature as we fight to save the animals worth saving.
If I may make a neutral observation at this point; it does seem that the more rural and third-world the continent, the more trouble you have in controlling the numbers of the affected species.
So my proposal is this: If we look at the handful of animals that are about to checkout, we could round them up and transport them in planes or ships to the US. We’re a massive continent with adequate space and facilities to take care of all the threatened species and because we’re first-world and have security and border controls, we’d ensure safety for the animals as well as control the breeding cycles to manage the numbers.
I was going to suggest other first-world nations like Europe but the weather there is probably not suitable for Africa’s beasts and they’d just look out of place.
This seems like a good idea and a win-win for all parties involved:
1 – The animal lovers get to keep the weaker species alive.
2 – The animals get to live on for future generations.
3 – America gets to help Africa again and gains international favor for our generosity.
4 – Mankind wins the war against evolution.
