268. Overgrazing

If a little too many farm animals graze on a little too small area; then that will after a little too long period of time, result in overgrazing. When that in a sneaking way has impoverished the area a little too much year after year, then the number of farm animals must be much reduced, or the area must be totally untouched for many years. The area didn’t have enough resources for so many farm animals. Either the farm animals have to be moved to another area, or they will die of hunger.

It is the same with the planet Earth and us humans. If we too late understand that we have overconsumed the Earth too much for a too long period of time; then we understand that too late. Then we don’t have another planet to move to, and the economy can’t help us.
