You can make a very good comparison of humanity and it's urban sprawl to ants, like ants humans continue to populate with no regard for the environment, the more we populate the more precious resources we take up, the more urban sprawl happens, the more motor vehicles have to be driven, the more farming has to be done to feed this population and yes, the more garbage is generated that needs to be disposed of that we have no where to put right now as it is. This all contributes to greenhouse gases and global warming. Deforestation all over the world is happening at an alarming rate for lumber to create homes and the thousand other things we use trees for just for the out of control masses . Our rain forests are disappearing, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that our rain forests lend a hand in controlling the climate of our planet. Before 1900 the population stayed pretty constant but then in 1900 the world population climbed to 1.9 Million then exploded after that, today , 2022 world population is 7.999 Billion people. On average that is and additional 64 million people per year and the number keeps climbing with better medicine and technology. Humans are reproducing faster than society can sustain the population. Like ants, you can chase them all around the world and back but you will never eradicate them ..... Sooner or later humanity will be the cause of it's own undoing. Global warming ...... pffft, a good place to start in controlling it or reversing it would be population control and reduction.
