  • We could try, you know, preserving entire habitats and ecosystems. Maybe making it so things stay alive, or even flourish and recover from our earlier farking around. It's been done in places, it's not impossible. Hard maybe. We would have to tell people "no" a lot.

    You're being prejudiced against the new species that will occupy our space, bigot.

    Excellent example. But we need to recognize that phosphate depletion has been a continuous cause of social disasters for thousands of years. I'm going to write a history of dead civilizations due to depleted phosphorus in the soil over the eras.
