    speculation. we are contained system.

    • You misunderstand. He’s not saying we’ve brought stuff in from space, he’s saying that we’ve created more synthetic stuff than there is all life on Earth (we’ve also killed a lot of life and turned it into dead junk).

    Just a question if we get alot of the products we use from the earth then how are we making it more heavy besides the overpopulation?

  5. Pure hogwash…all speculation and theory with no possiblity of proof.

  6. We’ve just put a lot of stuff on top of other stuff.

      the metal weighs the same whether its in the ground or stacked 50stories high. all we have done is displace the weight.

  7. so you’re saying we have to eat more…way ahead of you dude.

  8. And soon humans will be going back to the dark ages.

  9. The world has more synthetic crap than actual life. There are too many humans and too much stuff. 😒

      no. we are a contained system. everything on our planet is in perfect synchronicity to create something requires the sacrifice of something else.

  10. Out weigh? So did they calculate the weight of the planet? Impossible and ridiculous cause everything is made out of what we have on our planet. Incredibly stupid

  11. I disagree for the simple fact that we dont even know completely whats on Earth. Plus humans arent going anywhere so our stuff is only going to grow. I think weve out numbered Nature for a long time with our selfishness and greed.

  12. Just reshuffling existing mass around. Not really a big deal in terms of space and time. Ants and ant hills really.

  13. Brilliant deduction there, Einstein.

  14. This guy is on Crack!

  15. All I care about is my weed supply.

  16. Matter cannot be created or destroyed… Alfred E Newman

  17. We’ve mined everything from underneath the earth’s surface and placed it on top.. hmm..
