Unknown monsters lurking in a dark soup? How do you feel about these being damaged by human activity, such as deep-sea mining, changing ocean acidity and temperature, and bottom trawling?

‘Be fruitful and multiply!’

Our demand for natural resources depends on how much stuff we consume, multiplied by how many of us there are.

Human population is discussed much less; it’s a political “hot potato” which conservation organisations, development agencies and churches tend to steer clear of.
