If someone wants to complain about population growth, that is fine. But if you yourself aren't willing to starve to death to save the planet, you should not be complaining about creating new farmland to feed all the other people who, just like you, don't want to willingly starve to death to save the planet.
BTW, the ice age I referred to above was around ~600-800 million years ago, not 300. Info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowball_Earth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryogenian#Climate
Why do they have to starve to death instead of making fewer babies, to save the planet?
I'm not a crack addict and I have every right to complain if someone burns down a forest to grow coca.
Maybe the problem is the 3rd world is addicted like crack addicts to unprotected sex without birthcontrol.
Because the moron thinks he found some valid counter argument to support his consumption dreams. For the record i would gladly starve off in front of the cameras 24/7 if that would stop the disproportionate destruction of nature by morons like you
, but it won´t happen, you know why?, because i can do it, and all the people in the forum can go for it but it won´t be change anything because morons like YOU have to have their cozy lifestyle, here is an example, tell me did this:
stop the Vietnam war? here you have people self immolating as you want for an issue less important than the one we are discussing here. What changed? nothing, nothing at all.
So stop trying to change the issue. YOU are the one advocating the destruction of the little virgin land that still remains in this planet to feed even more people.
What about your proposals? what about some voluntary powerdown, from the countries than use more energy and food? what about drastic measures to control population? are you in favor of that? Of course not, i bet you are in the camp that says "eventually population will stabilize for itself" very nice argument. kick the solution to some indefinite future to others take the responsability. And lets keep our way of life, what the hell, i´m not to blame.
Finally the true colours of Shitfinder have appeared eh? nothing
will stand in the way to my plasma tv and my disney holidays. Wow, what a pathetic excuse for a human being.
