Snip from his stated reasons for the suicide.

“Pollution ravages our planet, oozing inhabitability via air, soil, water and weather,” Buckel wrote in his email to the Times. 
“Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result—my early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.”
“A life of privilege requires actions to balance the harm caused, and the greater the privilege, the greater the responsibility," Buckel added. "For if one does not leave behind a world better for having lived in it, all that remains are selfish ends, sometimes wrapped in family or nation.”
Nevermind that actual lifespan continues to increase.  The only things causing it to decrease recently are opioid overdoses and war.  And war deaths are lower now than the historical average.
