A world-renowned ecologist was invited to attend and produce a lecture on the planetary crisis due to human activities. Made to lead the event with his speech, he provided tons of information on how the environment is affected by various changes induced by humanity.
After throwing mind-blowing facts and conundrums, the ecologist stunned the whole crowd in silence by saying, “If humans continue on this path, every organism, man, woman, and animal alike will be gone within the next 50 years!”.
Upon hearing this, the whole auditorium erupted in a pandemonium of disarray and panic. People started arguing among each other, discussing the controversy that had been opened out in public. This made the ecologist more confident as he witnessed the power his words contained.
While the crowd couldn’t comprehend the reality of the situation, a woman in the audience got up and interrupted the ecologist by asking him to repeat what he just said.
Hearing the request, the ecologist was amazed at how his statement gained traction among the audience and took pride in what he had said earlier by repeating, “If humans continue on this path, every organism, man, woman, and animal alike will be gone within the next 50 years!”.
To the ecologist’s surprise, the man took a deep breath and sighed relief. Then, while the whole crowd, including the ecologist, was left aghast, the man said with a comforting voice, “Thank goodness. Luckily, we have another 50 years more and not just 15”.
