    The biggest problem on the planet, as I see it, is a lack of access to affordable, available birth control methods. Reduction of the uncontrolled and rampant population growth in every country is what will doom all of these plans. We are our own worst enemy.

    Dave Foreman, one of the founders of The Rewilding Institute and founder of Earth First!, wrote a very comprehensive book about 5 years ago. It was entitled “Rewilding North America: A Vision for 21st Century Conservation”. It was a very detailed book on how the spne corridors in North America should look.

    At the time I was wondering how these corridors were going to be achieved due to human occupancy. Now I see how it can be achieved. One of the concerns about the articleis there is no mention of Dave. to me, that is sad, as he was one of the first visionaries to propose this concept.

    I agree, we are our own worst enemy.

    I should have mentioned Dave Foreman when I posted the article today. I might have given some background.

    I’ve known about this Wildlands Project since he first envisioned it. When was that, 15 years ago?

    Dave Foreman is a real hero in my estimation.
