Well, that is the tough part, isn't it. The answer is that individual freedom among beings who reproduce is incompatible with a sustainable, finite ecosystem. In other words, we will have to resort to tyranny to fix it. It will require a one-world authority in some form or another, and I would not expect the decisions to be "fair" in anyone's mind. Maybe Scotland is superfluous and should be eliminated. Maybe Germany is important and should be increased in population. Regardless, overall, we adapt to our finite reality or we destroy it. To you fans of the history of economic thought, it's the revenge of Malthus.
Now, having said that, if your attitude is "live free or die," and you would rather see the whole thing burn than be a slave, then this former Libertarian certainly empathizes with you. Maybe you are right about that. But what I can tell you is that a failure to organize on a global scale and stop the madness will INEVITABLY result in destruction for the humans.
Interestingly, when you accept this, you also accept a different viewpoint about the "elite." The Georgia Guidestones, for example, are pretty much spot-on, and if the elite succeed in taking over and driving us in this direction, then your descendents will be saved. But perhaps that fate is worse than death.

Don't need to do any real research I've done it for years being an avid recreational fisherman. At one time I would have agreed with you but I know how these environmental people exaggerate and distort the facts.I know those things you speak of do exist but I do not believe they are of a scale they are made out to be. All of that is blown way out of proportion.
