Berkeley declared that the world is suffering a "climate emergency" more dangerous than WWII and that a sixth mass extinction is coming.
Well...I guess things are worse than I thought.
I know the climate is important. I don't think anyone will deny that. But is it as bad as all that? And are humans really responsible for something
that is dynamic and always changing anyway? Maybe we are, maybe we aren't. But either way, is "humane" population control really necessary?
First of all, what exactly is 'humane' population control. We euthanize animals not lucky enough to find forever homes and claim we do it in a humane
way. So what exactly is humane population control? And who enforces it? And what are the penalties for not complying?
If the people at Berkeley, and the democrats who defend the climate emergency tooth and nail, really believe there is an extinction level event coming
due to climate change why are they still driving around in limousines and flying personal jets? Why do they have refrigerators and air conditioners
for that matter? If the climate is really in that much danger, why aren't they walking the walk instead of talking the talk?
I know the majority of people who read this will say it just means we need to be more responsible. But 'we', the US, are only 340 million people in a
world nearing 8 billion people. As for the population/land mass ratio we are about as responsible as anyone could be. And if the idea really is benign
and simplistic in nature, what of the politicians who will seize this as an opportunity to enable more sinister devices meant to cut population, not
just control its growth?
