Speaking of the "wrong track," we humans have created a grossly unsustainable situation with a booming population of 7.5 billion--rapidly headed for a mid-century number of 9 or 10 billion on a planet whose natural resources can sustain 4 billion at best.
What can we do? Since we won't be able to reverse evolution back to the Stone Age, our best chance is to urgently begin to re-engineer our lifestyle--so that Mother Nature will not evict us humans from her planet.
Should we ask her how she thinks we're doing so far? A mid-term report card:

For our "chances" of not being evicted by Mother Nature, I end this BSB with a quote from

Keep it Simple. Get it Done. The Clock is Ticking.
