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?

The Berkley folks should put their money where their mouthes are.
After they euthanize themselves to show their commitment to their idea, and all the others who agree with them follow suit, we just might be in good shape!

I demand that they start thinning out their own numbers, or is this just another case of do as we say not as we do.

I know.... "We need to reduce the population right away! I pick you, and you, and you..." There is never a mirror around when you need one...

Hopefully a brush fire will burn down the entire campus to the foundation. How very Nazi of them...

The only legitimate thing to come from Berkeley was FreeBSD

OK. Then let's start the population control with Berkeley....

Probably all things for other people to be compelled to figure out.

Don't expect Berkley to set any example, i.e. order their people to stop having sex. Although proposals for mandatory "retirement community" resettlement for anyone over a certain age would not surprise me.

It seems mass extinction happens gradually, we've lost a lot of species over the last 15-20 thousand years. It's not necessarily our fault...

Life evolves or it disappears.

We have accelerated things though, I gotta say that our destructive ways had nothing to do with our carbon footprint, more like our desire.

These days... Who knows?

Maybe our lust for resources are wiping the planet out, if the planet was already changing then we might be making things worse.

Meh.

Population control. We should start with the architects and not the builders, especially not the poor either. It's the former who created our mess, the rest were just partially-willing participants, gotta make a living somehow.

When they start contributing to the sustainable production of food, the recycling of non decomposing articles, extending of permaculture and any multitude of actual labors shared by all of the actual feeders and shelterers of the world .....these non producing erudites that like to climb on their high horses and point fingers, i may give 2 fux about what these inept non contributors have to say.

We could reduce our population here in the U.S. by stopping illegal immigration. I am sure the leftist tools at Berkeley will be all in on that idea.

Wouldn't you want to live and work in the greatest nation on Earth, say if you already didn't?

From what I gather, illegals always work one way or another. Only citizens have access to governmental aid.

Quell the demand for cheap labor.

Illegals here have access to more than most tax paying citizens do. They can get more for free than I ever could including a college education.

It would seem that the general consensus here is that us Morloks should snatch a few Eloi now and then to keep the numbers in check. I have to tell ya, there is nothing better than grilled Eloi in garlic butter... mmmmmm

Let those who created this mess be the first against the wall. Not a bad approach.

Until the whiny leftists start offing themselves, I'm going to ignore their annoying blathering and consider it nothing more than diarrhea that has backed up into their mouths from eating too much tofu.

Yep.

The peoples republic of Berkeley should be FOR gun violence instead of banning them.

humane' population control = Eugenics

This is an opening discriminately statement being back by a supposedly liberal institute of academics. Typical double talk by Globalist Imperials.

Yes, anyone who doesn't know anything about the world. There are more poor people than ever and no relief in site, not to mention weather catastrophies like the flooding we just had in PA.
