Somehow I fail to be encouraged by your perspective of our 99% extinction rate. And I'm only slightly more upset with the situation than previously.
The sticking point is the standard bell curve distribution of human awareness and ability to understand process logic. Unfortunately, the bar of planetary well-being and species survival has been raised, and we need to make some serious adjustments for that.
It appears that we are so far down that we cannot even discuss this and have no hope of making useable adjustments as it questions our definition of humanity as citizens.
