Homo Sapiens – man – human beings.
Written records approximately 5,000 years.
Planet Earth is about 4700 million years old – Happy Birthday!
Man? Us? We’ve been here about 2 million years.
That represents a 2 million year learning curve to get where we are today.
Some curve! Some failure!
Many successes – yet ultimately failure.
If we truly had “the benefit of hindsight” we wouldn’t carry on making the same mistakes.
At our present level of intelligence the 2 million year learning curve could now see dramatic changes; both planet saving and life saving changes.
In our lifetimes man can change very quickly; we have the power, capability, intelligence and technology to do so.
2 million years learning curve?
Time for change.
