Take a look at this interview and to the next part of this same interview, and then, tell me,

  1. what a wonderful speech! I loved it! I am totally agree with the fact
    that the human race are autodestroying theirelves slowly. In my
    opinion is a matter of inteligence yes, but also a problem of being
    selfish, insensitive,and super ambicius persons. I pray for this
    situation change one day because, how can we think about having
    childreen in a world like this? Is SAD, very sad... Like Michael

    1. Thanks very much Iria for your comment, I agree that humans have to change their attitude or we will destroy ourselves, and this, I insist, is to the most intelligent behaviour..but there is also a lot of selfishness, because people do not think about the next generations, they think it doesn't matter because they will not be on Earth anyways...this is a problem. Maybe education and raising consciousness on the new generations is a solution, what do you think?
