I love this time of year when the bluebells cover the woodland floor and all the birds are busy building nests and courting. Being in nature is a central part of my soul. I hate the idea of 300,000 new homes per year plus all the infrastructure being built on such a small island as Britain until one day we have no wild areas left at all. Its a hard thing to think about. Most liberal and decent people appear to favour all immigration and human growth as a human right and yet if you do we also have to accept our countryside and nature being wiped out until the only wildlife is what can live in our gardens and parks such as foxes which have moved back into the cities.
If you look at England alone we are more densely populated than India. if you only include counties with a population more than a million England is more densely populated than any country outside of Asia and in the worlds top 10. The planet Earth is in the sixth biggest extinction event of all time right now with more animal species becoming extinct than at any time since the dinosaurs were wiped out. This time its not a giant meteor but entirely due to mankind spreading and wiping out habitats and killing species for food. I once saw a documentary where some scientist type person said that if an alien species were in charge of managing the earth the first thing it would do would be to start a mass cull of human beings. We think this would be cruel and yet that is exactly what we do with all other animals species that become a pest or overpopulate.
