Prince William warns that there are too many people in the world

Prince William warns that there are too many people in the world thumbnail

Rapidly growing human populations risk having a “terrible impact” on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned.

The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under “enormous pressure” and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour.

His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated “voluntary family limitation” as a means of solving overpopulation, which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation.

His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain animal populations.

“In my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half,” he said.

“We are going to have to work much harder, and think much deeper, if we are to ensure that human beings and the other species of animal with which we share this planet can continue to co-exist.

“Africa’s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 – a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month.

“There is no question that this increase puts wildlife and habitat under enormous pressure.

“Urbanisation, infrastructure development, cultivation – all good things in themselves, but they will have a terrible impact unless we begin to plan and to take measures now.”

a group of people standing next to a man in a suit and tie © Provided by The Telegraph The Duke, said that overgrazing and poor water supplies could have a “catastrophic effect” without new ideas about how to mitigate such challenges.

“We are going to have to work much harder, and think much deeper, if we are to ensure that human beings and the other species of animal with which we share this planet can continue to co-exist,” he added.

The Duke warned that many species, including rhino, lion and pangolin,  still face an existential threat because of the illegal wildlife trade.

“It is barbaric, it destroys livelihoods and communities, and it supports organised crime,” he said.

“The world is a worse place for it, and we must stamp it out.”

He also said he was pleased that the Government had recently announced plans to restrict sales of ivory within the UK.

    He best keep his fly zipped up with the pecker in the pants…
    Kate Middleton’s and Prince William’s hands are about to be very full next spring! While the Kensington Palace announced in September that the Duke and Duchess are expecting baby number three, a new report claims they’re actually preparing to welcome their third and fourth child together

    What an awful person. A waste product of their
    British welfare system, “royalty” does nothing useful
    has no skills.
    Cranking out babies with his “royalty” wife,
    pisses and koans about “too many people”
    yet has no suggestions at all what to do
    about it.
    After the speech against population growth,
    he retired to the bed chambers to bang his wife.

    If he had a reasonable proposal to solve the
    problem, that would be great. He doesn’t so
    he should shut his ugly royal mouth.

    UK has 1.8 children per woman, pretty high for the West, but still below replacement level:

    https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.DYN.TFRT.IN?locations=GB&year_high_desc=false

    That high number probably has something to do with immigration to the UK.

    As far as I’m concerned the good royal can have 15 children. They at least will probably be able to read and write and not drive their Rolls Royce into a large crowd.

    Go for it, William!

    F* for the future!

    The welfare prince is concerned that the rest of the world is reproducing too quickly. He sounds like his forbears, speaking about the Irish.

  5. JuanP on Fri, 3rd Nov 2017 1:43 pm 

    This completely useless motherfucker already has two biological offspring and his wife is pregnant again. I would castrate this retard if I could. He should sterilize himself and stop telling other people what to do. He is nothing but an entitled, arrogant prick and he makes me sick!

  6. MASTERMIND on Fri, 3rd Nov 2017 2:22 pm 

    WOW..Look at all the double think in the comments on this article..What he is arguing is true..The comments of total ignorance under this article. Are proof why we can’t solve our overpopulation issues ever besides of course a massive die off happening…Anyone who dares even talk about the issue is instantly vilified and attacked..Well I got news for everyone here in peak oil comment land..

    The last law of nature says: that any creature that despoils and outbreeds its natural habitat will be culled to bring its numbers under control and restore a stable environment.

    So since we can’t talk about it or deal with it..Looks like a massive calling it will be….Great choice!

    MM, the culling is already in progress. The white race is not reproducing to even replacement levels, including the supposed educated Japanese. The rest, thanks to their still holding onto their regions (Catholic/Muslim/etc.) are exceeding replacement levels.

    It depends on what “culling” you are speaking of. The “others” are used to a higher death rate. It is just daily life in their world. So, having six kids is just insurance that one or two will live to take care of them in their old age. You are not going to change that by telling them they should limit their family because there are two many people.

    I keep trying to educate some here that they cannot judge others by their own standards. The world has many very old cultures that vary considerably from one another. The US has no culture. It is a stew pot that needs a few more hundred years to get the beginnings of a “culture”, after it homogenizes into a tan skinned people.

    I live in a culture quite different than that of the US. Much better in most ways. But no one who hasn’t lived here will understand why it is better and why it has a better chance of surviving the Western collapse. I do, and that is why I stay.

    The world will be a better place when they’re are alot less people. But getting there is pardon the expression is A Bitch. Oh and rich person STFU, because we know very well you nor your family are volunteering to leave this planet.

    WTF did you just say mad kat? That is exactly what you do mr. mad kat judgment agenda. LOOser

    What are the chances of another major war coming due to climate change+energy crisis+economic crash?
    When that happens the powerful will reduce the peasant masses where necessary to ensure the land stays in good condition for planetary survival (asian and european peoples will need to survive for survival of humanity).
    The cold dark distant future holds only war because of the stupidity of the masses today.

  11. makati1 on Sat, 4th Nov 2017 12:49 am 

    Nat, War is in the cards because it is the last gasp of every empire. And there will be no place to hid after as it will be nuclear. Those elite actually believe they can survive a nuclear exchange so they believe they can use them and not lose. THAT is the real danger today. Insanity.

  12. Theedrich on Sat, 4th Nov 2017 3:38 am 

    Ah, more virtue-signaling from rotted elites.  The British filth who loves committing fratricide against its Germanic relatives in World Wars is now telling Whites (the only ones in earshot) to go extinct.

    Meanwhile, the black and brown dross from Negroland and from other muddy ThirdWorld trash pits is multiplying like the bacteria it is, not caring a whit about the prattling princeling.  Its only obsession is moving to Whiteland in order to feed off the suppurating BleedingHeart Judeo-Cretins there.

    Actually, the best way the parasitic royal could help diminish world overshoot would be for him himself to find some way to compete for the Darwin award.

  13. Sissyfuss on Sat, 4th Nov 2017 8:54 am 

    Do as I say, not as I do is never a very convincing doctrine.

  14. Davy on Sat, 4th Nov 2017 9:01 am 

    Good one siss!

  15. Newfie on Sun, 5th Nov 2017 9:03 pm 

    Mad Kat, if the world economy collapses hordes of starving Pinos will swarm up that tower you live in and toss the white boys out the windows and carry off all your loot. You are totally delusional if you think the Philippines will become a utopia after the West collapses. ROTFLMAO.

  16. MASTERMIND on Sun, 5th Nov 2017 9:20 pm 

    Newfie..We know..Madkat is so delusional he thinks he little shithole will survive the global economic collapse..

  17. Davy on Sun, 5th Nov 2017 11:11 pm 

    Newfie, this is where mad kat falls flat in his face. With mad kat it is a situation where he thinks “I am secure” and “you will be killed”. His attitude is narcissistic. Many of us here realize we are all going to have security problems. We are all going to have food issues. Let’s talk about those scenarios and try to help each other with coping strategies. With mad kat it is all about I am safe and you are screwed. Mad Kat is in a very vulnerable place. He has nothing to brag about. Few of us here can brag about our locations for survival in a global collapse. A lot depends on many factors that will vary globally depending on how a collapse might happen. There are very many scenarios in time and place. There are too many to generalize for.

  18. Davy on Sun, 5th Nov 2017 11:31 pm 

    We should all be clear that what happens in China will not stay in China. The US and Europe are no longer immune from an Asian contagion and of course the same is true for Asia. This is likely the greatest problem for all here together. A global financial crisis will magnifies all other problems because of lowered economic strength to fund problem resolutions and a steady erosion of social safety nets. That is the good. The bad is a quick unwind of markets and trade leading to a breakdown of vital supplies of food and energy. It will likely be a process with both good and bad happening in variable locations. Luck will surely play a part in who get the worst of the break down in the status quo order.

    “PBOC’s Zhou Warns Of “Sudden, Complex, Hidden, Contagious, Hazardous” Risks In Global Markets”
    http://tinyurl.com/y8pajp6a

    “Just two weeks after warning of the potential for an imminent ‘Minsky Moment’, Chinese central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan has penned a lengthy article on The PBOC’s website that warns ominously of latent risks accumulating, including some that are “hidden, complex, sudden, contagious and hazardous,” even as the overall health of the financial system appears good. The imminence of China’s Minksy Moment is something we have discussed numerous times this year. The three credit bubbles shown in the chart above are connected. Canada and Australia export raw materials to China and have been part of China’s excessive housing and infrastructure expansion over the last two decades. In turn, these countries have been significant recipients of capital inflows from Chinese real estate speculators that have contributed to Canadian and Australian housing bubbles. In all three countries, domestic credit-to-GDP expansion financed by banks has created asset bubbles in self-reinforcing but unsustainable fashion.”

    “Which all sounds very ominous and very positive in ending this facade..but just like the promises/threats ofprevious deleveragings – at the first sign of market jitters, the bankers will fold. As Kyle Bass recently concluded…it’s the biggest bubble we have ever seen in the history of financial markets. $40 trillion of assets in a system with $2 trillion in equity.”

    “We’re now in a bubble of epic proportions for Chinese credit…everything seems to be bubbling to the top and reaching a boiling point almost concurrently.”

    MM, Newfie, Davy, et all: The delusional capital of the world is the USA. You all keep declaring that USMSM/Hollywood brainwashed version of the rest of the world that does not even come close to reality. But stay in your delusional world called America. The rest of the world doesn’t want your insanity to spread.

    All of you have that “exceptionalist/Indispensable” bullshit so ingrained in your narrow minds that you cannot even entertain any other reality as possible. Brainwashing is the only thing that the US is good at besides debt. I am going to have the last laugh when the SHTF. Wait and see.

  20. DerHundistlos on Mon, 6th Nov 2017 12:40 am 

    MASTERMIND thank you for an excellent point of clarity re. double-think.

    While I understand the criticism directed at the prince’s prodigy count, only fair to point out that Andrew and his father have served as active proponents for wildlife conservation. Their opinion matters. Further, the royal family has donated significant funds to environmental causes.

  21. Davy on Mon, 6th Nov 2017 6:08 am 

    “MM, Newfie, Davy, et all: The delusional capital of the world is the USA.”
    What, you are saying mad kat is you have no response just your normal deflections of delusional, insanity, brainwashing. I wish I had a penny for every time you have said that. You are shallow intellectually so instead of elaborating you just deflect. When the SHTF you are in the worst possible place Mad Kat. A condo above 20MIL hungry people is a bad place to be.
