Humanity continues to suffer pressures from both natural and man-made sources. Yet, most of the experiencing stresses could be alleviated and humanity could be saved, if only mankind would act more responsible and rational, in respect to environmental, rights and conflict issues.
Humankind holds its existence and survival in its own hands. All actions taken by governments and measured down to the unitary actions of individuals, bear a direct correlation to the continuity of humanity.
Governmental policy to remove carbon cap emissions imposed on factories will adversely effect the environment. Littering Rock Creek and other parks with disposable water bottles will inevitably harm the environment.
Removing environmental protections will kill humanity. The air, oceans, rivers, lakes, forests and cities will become poisonous places for humans, animals and all organisms in the absence of environmental protections.
Conflicts in Syria, Yemen, Libya, Ukraine, South Sudan, as well as in other places, along with other conflicts that are in the making, will all damper humanity's survival. Escalations of conflicts and the infusion of more fighters into existing conflicts, will not save humanity. But ending all conflicts will ensure humanity's survival.
Moreover, any intrusion, denial and trampling of the rights of humankind, will not save humanity. However, humanity could be saved via the protection of all religious, human, civil and gender rights.
To safeguard humanity, rational, sensible and empathetic governance must be promoted under a broad mandate to preserving all species with no limitations of any preferences to class, color, creed or nationality.
