    plant more trees, make sure you personally try to benefit the ecosystem, take cuttings and propogate them and plant them out when grown enough. skip a meal a day could help. try to actually use only what you need and be a tight arse around reusing things and collectively that should help.

    Disguise help no one and nothing for environment or diversity! This urban Profi Protester dont plant trees, dont start a new way of farming, dont invent new cars, dont help only one animal anywhere... They just pay the price of their ideology! And its sad, that so many kids get involved in this theatre🤢🤮☹

    I guess for me it looks like two Pyramids are trying to make sex... But anyway things are gettin' nasty in this world & our planet and some of ,,we" are responsible for this error, Human Error...Somehow we deserve this but in the end it' s human nature...Or Human Or Nature... Avé Greta 🤟😊

    Oh a lot of people here commenting extinction doesnt exist. Lots of species have been extinct. Just one species disappearing is already bad for the balance of nature. Lately the last male northern white rhino died. Only 2 females remain which makes it usless coz how the fuck can there be babies?

    I like how they always gag themselves and pretend they were refused reasonable debate.
