Unchecked population growth is speeding climate change, damaging
life-nurturing ecosystems and dooming many countries to poverty, experts
concluded in a conference report released Monday.Unless birth rates are lowered
sharply through voluntary family-planning programmes and easy access to
contraceptives, the tally of humans on Earth could swell to an unsustainable 11
billion by 2050, they warned. . . .
Weary sigh. According to The Population Bomb weren't we all supposed to be dead decades ago?
The experts are all about saving our "natural resources" yet they totally discount our greatest natural resource-us. No mighty oak, no majestic whale has ever or will ever achieve or have the ability to achieve the potential innate in each human at creation. We are a miracle. Yet, the environmentalist would rather control human growth than find ways to adapt to it.
Every person I have ever known who has closely identified with the environmental movement has been pro-abortion. The would save the whale or the oak or smelt but would not a human, unless they were an adult serial murderer sitting on death row.
There is a self-loathing in the environmental movement that defies understanding. Yes, as populations grow, particularly in under developed countries, innovation will become more and necessary. Where do they expect that innovation to come from, the timber wolf? Humans will achieve the greatness we need to successfully transition forward. And in 2050, some expert will still be calling for our end.
