If right then how do we decide who lives and who dies. ?
The world could easily handle 10x the amount of people we currently have if we were perhaps a bit better organized.
When you look at Tokyo or Mexico city of course it seems overcrowded but then look at Wyoming or Siberia and it certainly isn't. We also have the technology to build underground, on the water and beneath the Sea if we have too. The Earth has so much room its laughable.
We can grow food in any environment, make our own water, raise fish on land.....plenty of methods to feed everyone and house them if we decide to do it.
What Mr. Cousteau is referring to is his desire to see a world remain as it is where the population does not interfere with him. Or at least while he was alive.
It has very little to do with what is sustainable and is actually an extremely selfish point of view held by many people.
Questions, right or wrong...Is the Earth:
A.) Reaching its' saturation point of population?
B.) Able to sustain ourselves at the current yearly growth rate? How?
C.) Able to survive as people are living longer, Medicine is prolonging life, our Earth has limited resources: What to do?
Again, its not a problem, the problems don't exist. They've all been solved for at least many decades, but probably far longer. We aren't facing problems, we're facing CRIMES WITH INTENT TO MURDER AND HARM, by a very small group of insane in the membrane universal freaks running this world.
Again, no problems exist, they've been solved. CRIMES EXIST.
No need to harm anyone, enslave anyone even. Just equalize, make sure all have land and resources and heritage seeds and stop this madness.
What a truckload of mule puckey.
We already produce more than enough to feed the planet. It just doesn't get to everybody.
If we dropped the chemical/ gmo/monoculture farming where we have to truck a friggin carrot 1500 miles to sell it and went to localized organic (read, OLD SCHOOL) farming methods then we'd have better and more plentiful food at lower prices.
The world needs less greed and interference, not more ineffective micromanagement.
Of course, all of the depopulationist enthusiasts plan on killing off 6.5 billion OTHER people. Not themselves.
Amazingly as this chart shows, just about 11 countries make up close to 6.5 Billion of the Worlds Total population. Of approximately 7.2M
If 6.9 billion people lived as crowded as say Paris France it would take Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas. Since there are 7.2 billion we could throw in Oklahoma...and call it Paris 2...
The population is not as problematic as the pollution and waste IMO. I did a thread not to long ago about the uranium mining which left radioactive mining waste that is today possibly irradiating and poisoning the ground water for an estimated 38 million people. www.abovetopsecret.com...
Japan's nuclear reactors may end up doing what many of the eugenicist have only dreamed of..
Funny how all the people who want to do away with people for their idea of population control always want to start someplace "over there not here"!
Some of the young want to kill the old and the old just want to live in peace or order someone else (the young) to die for some patriotic reason... To me it is simple. The earth will shake mankind off either through some super bug or super volcano or super duper extra solar event or we might do ourselves; terminate in a grand extinction event some government orders thinking they will survive.
In the mean time those who want to cry save mother earth she is dying, the oil is running out, the world is ending etc etc .... move over and let me play though; I have a few more holes (golf) I want to play.
Lassie met up with a wolf. Lassie liked to talk and was really getting on the Wolf's nerves with all the chatter about stuff Lassie said she knew and thought was a big deal.. They came to a river that needed to be crossed on the way home so they both jumped in. The current was swift and Lassie was floundering and about ready to drown. The Wolf grabbed Lassie and drug her to the shore. Motor mouth Lassie could not believe how the Wolf saved her from a horrible death. After a 20 minute time period of thanks and recuperation by Lassie the Wolf spoke.
"While you were learning all the things you have been talking about all day I took 5 minutes when I was a pup and taught myself how to swim. It is true I don't know much about geometry, Don't know much about history,
Don't know much biology, Don't know much about a science book, Don't know much about the French,
But there is one thing I do know and that is for sure, "I know how to swim find food to survive".
Knowledge based priorities work while screaming at the moon to come closer is a waste of breath and time.
“Lord grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Pick your fights well grasshopper for there are many battles that require no death just action based knowledge and the will to take the first step.
America just became the biggest oil producer in the world; did you see a cost reduction in a barrel of oil?.
In the 70s the greens were saying at about this time the earth would be out of oil... Doomsday and the rapture is coming you better get ready bubba etc etc and yet here we are; all 7.2 billion souls, making a living, breeding, laughing, and some quite content even though they are poor as dirt. I personally wish all the Eugenicist would lead the way and do themselves in... Lead by example etc etc otherwise if they ever get the power to enact their evil plans many who sang their praises will be some of the first to go.
There is plenty of land and the entire ocean still for us to populate
