Thanks for this thread, LiveForever8, and for the trouble you have taken to research and provide the excellent data in your post. I think it's a
fascinating topic, and one which generally isn't scrutinised enough.
I'm with you on this. Me too, I believe that overpopulation is exaggerated, and probably a myth.
It's just one more thing they use to browbeat us with and grind us down, and further their own diabolic agenda.
I don't deny that population has grown, but the data relating to the decrease in global birth rates since appro. 1965 is being too often ignored and
not included as part of rational debate on this topic, and, of course, is never included in the overpopulation propaganda. No surprise there.
The drop in global birth rates is real. Experts predict that it will have a huge impact in a generation or two, some are already raising the alarm
that the world is facing a serious depopulation crisis.
Fact: It is already acknowledged that Europe is experiencing a depopulation crisis.
See: "The World Spinning from a Population Crisis"
Excerpt from above article:
These demographic figures in Europe indicate that there will be one worker per one retired person by 2050. Already, the declining population in Europe
has given rise to reductions in social services, which have led to angry demonstrators objecting to this decline in services. Such demonstrations have
occurred in the past few months in France and Austria, as well as Italy.
The U.K. has attempted to meet the ominous drain in pension funds caused by its low birth rate with the recent announcement that it will raise the
retirement age from 65 to 70 years. Other countries are offering job re-training programs for 65 year olds in order to encourage them to remain in the
workforce. Increased taxes to cover the growing financial problems in Europe are also proving to be another solution, but also a headache for many
governments, which must face a disgruntled electorate over the rise in taxes.
In UK the increased retirement age is already being implemented.
It's inaccurate that deforestation is happening because of increased population, I believe it's happening because of increased consumerism and
greed, and because a total lack of ethics by the big corporations who care nothing for the environment, but only about how to make maximum bucks at
the least cost to themselves, irrespective on consequences on the environment.
The greedy powers-that-soon-won't-be prefer to blame overpopulation rather than their own greed and total lack of regard for the environment, in the
name of their god of exploitation and profit. It's a diversion tactic.
There is a lot of disagreement between scientific experts about whether global warming is happening at all, and even more so about whether CO2
emissions are actually causing the destruction to the climate as claimed.
In any case, we could reduce CO2 emissions and most other pollution virtually overnight IF the greedy, criminal corporations weren't suppressing the
hundreds of patents which would provide us with viable, clean, non-destructive alternatives.
They say that overpopulation is causing a food shortage, whilst at the same time they continue to criminally pollute the seas and the earth, which is
the source of our FOOD - THIS will cause a huge food shortage if it is allowed to continue.
Fact: he whole population of the globe could fit into a state like Texas or Arkensas, based on a calculation of each adult having an allocated lot of
land of 33' x 33'. The WHOLE of the rest of the world would be unpopulated. And, don't forget, the global birth rate is falling significantly and
rapidly. Is anybody seriously suggesting that wouldn't be enough to feed everyone?
So, even if the world population grew to the point where it would fit into the whole of the United States, which would be a huge increase in world
population, the rest of the world would still be unpopulated and enough to feed everyone.
These same group of soon-to-be-history world leaders' who are pushing the over-population are those with HUGE financial interests in the Corporations
which are ruining our planet. In my opinion, this is THE MOST URGENT PROBLEM.
They are poisoning our air, our seas, and our food, they are posinong our bodies, our children and our wonderful animals on this planet.
Corporate greed, corporate disregard for our planet (The Gulf oil Spill being just the latest example) and populaces who have been conditioned into
mass, greedy consumerism is what is ruining us.
The earth won't be able to sustain ANY life at all if this crimiinal, murderous agenda isn't stopped soon.
When the world embraces human values as the most vital foundation on which everything else must be built, when care for our planet is the first and
highest priority by which all manufacture must be ruled, the world will be a wonderful place to be, and there will be enough for everyone to live
