Some of you may remember this book.
Nude in Space. A story that tells about a world that’s heating up and becoming unbearable to live in, unless you go naked or when you live in a sealed, cooled dome that adds to the heating of that same world.
A few days ago I read that soon the world’s population will hit or pass 8 billion people.
8,000,000,000 humans. Imagine that.
Not 8 billion, but lots of folks.
When is this going to stop? How is this earth going to be able to handle so many people, with needs for housing, food, water and other basic life necessities?
It’s a crazy place that we’re in and it’s about to get worse. And almost all of these people are wearing clothes. While the planet warms up. Which means more people want air conditioners. Which means more need for energy and more heat exhaust. I guess I don’t need to paint the entire picture.
I hadn’t thought that the world from “Nude in Space” would come closer this quickly, but at the rate we’re continuing to breed, that’s going to happen. Many places of the planet are already becoming uninhabitable due to the heat. Because of that, more people will crowd onto the places that are still fine, pushing more heat out, and so creating even more hot spots that, I guess, will just accelerate the speed of bad things to come.
Why don’t people come to their senses and accept that going nude is at least some help to face the problem? Sure, it won’t solve everything, but no clothes means less need for air conditioners, and less production and waste of clothes.
Humanity is at a crossroad, and it has been there for a while, slowly moving towards the point of no sustainable return.
I see this happen. And many do so with me. There has to be a way to make ‘the world’ see that nude people aren’t as harmful as all those air conditioners and (heat) pollution producing factories.
If someone knows, or has an idea, I’d love to know.
Be well. Be nude. Be happy.
And be vigilant.
