Humans are very species-centric

Humans are very species-centric. We tend to focus completely on ourselves and what is best for us. After all you’ve read and viewed in this module, develop a personalbiostatement by considering and answering the following

  • Environmental resistance will determine how many humans the Earth can support
  • Human needs/wants should be the only consideration for the building of new roads, housing developments, golf courses, cities, etc.
  • Pollution is OK if it is controlled or minimized
  • The greenhouse effect is not a big deal and probably temporary
  • Quality of human life is measured only by housing and possessions
  • No human should have to make sacrifices so that other species can thrive and so that our planet is not degraded
  • Consumption is what humans have evolved to do

The biostatement should be about three paragraphs (600 words) and should contain your own rules to live by concerning how you wish to interact with other species while on this planet. It should accurately reflect your insights after thoughtful consideration of the scientific evidence
