Population IS a Problem

Enviroment

And it warrants greater attention, not less. This roundtable discussion with the staff of World Population Balance answers the question, “Is there a problem with population?” An attempt to answer the question with a “not really” was recently published in a commentary at Resilience.org. Population: What’s the Problem?, written by Chris Smaje, made some points that World Population Balance staff-members believe should not stand unchallenged.

    Davy’s long winded spews with little or no comment to show understanding or agreement. I can cut and paste too, but if I do not add my own view, or place it in context with what I am trying to sell, it is just words no one reads.
    You mean when you cut and paste long comments and say “slip slidin: and “we shall see” and or some other one liner nonsense?

    “I read Theedrich’s because he is saying something intelligent and thought out. I may not always agree, but I will listen to a logical, mature, educated comment and consider his/her point of view.”
    BS, makato, you assassinate characters and cultures per your warped agenda. You listen to yourself talk not others. You are the primary reason this forum was an extremist magnet. Fortunately I moderated much of this bad behavior. You are now a side show and largely irrelevant. Much of your extremist anti-Americanism and pro Asia puke has been a failure.

    “Don’t miss the point I’m making… The point is to show that people will take complex and extraordinary measures to defend their BS. Capitulation in the form of admitting one might be wrong is never an option.”
    Look in the mirror makato

    “Defending the indefensible…Davy’s motto. Hypocrisy all the way!”
    This should read: Defending the indefensible….makato’s motto. Hypocrisy all the way!”

    “BTW: Did all you American tax slaves get your ‘papers’ in to the Gestapo IRS on Monday? I hope so. That 3AM visit by the Storm Troopers…er…SWAT Team will not be pleasant. The least they will do is break down your door and kill your dog.”
    Makato, taxes are part of living in a society. You ran off to a 3rd world shanty town in your one room shack to whine and moan about the life you left…LOL.

    “Keep in mind that their IQ is so low they cannot even read addresses. LOL”
    Makato, you are a picture perfect example of someone who thinks they are intelligent but really is suffering what many old people get when they approach 80 and that is delusional grandiosity. You think because you are old that you are wise. Your mind is warped by old age onset dementia that clouds your ability to reality test your thoughts. You have proven largely a failure and one of my biggest success stories for my moderating and neutering those who are enemies of the truth. JuanP is the other success. The other who went AWOL is your old buddy GregT. BTW, where is annoymouse these days? Hopefully in rehab. You are a narcissistic vile old man and I wish you the worst.

    “U.S. Energy Consumption Hits All-Time Record”

    “World Trade Suffers Biggest Collapse since Financial Crisis”

    Two pieces of information that would appear to be contradictory. Until the turn of the century, energy consumption can be correlated quite well with real GDP, given that energy is the truly indispensable input in the production of all goods and services. Yet a slowdown in global trade (and manufacturing in China and the US) strongly suggests a fall in the consumption of real goods and hence falling real GDP.

    The US shale sector consumes a lot of natural gas and generally has poor net energy return. Maybe there are time lags between the two that obscure direct correlation. Either way, rising energy consumption no longer appears to signal rising prosperity. This is what we might expect if gross energy consumption were rising to offset a declining societal EROI. Maybe high gross energy consumption is no longer the sign of robust economic health that it used to be.

    There is such a thing as Emotional Intelligence that combines with IQ to produce the best of what humans can be. Theebitch is quite intelligent from a statistical viewpoint but lacks warmth and empathy, a fractionalized being. As Nature excells with balance, so too do the human species. But as we observe the decimation of the natural world we never question ourselves as being the vital cause of said destruction. No, we become tribal and blame our imagined inferiors which is so much more indolent and convienant than self examination.

  4. DerHundistLos on Wed, 17th Apr 2019 9:43 am 

    Sissyfuss, you nailed it once again. Thank you.

    “There is such a thing as Emotional Intelligence that combines with IQ to produce the best of what humans can be.

    Typical leftist arrogance and nihilism on display from DerHundistLos and Sissyfuss.

    Theedrich fails to fall over himself with ’empathy’ for invading foreigners that he has never met; who are not part of his tribe and who pose a threat to his way of life; so naturally, there must be something wrong with ‘HIS’ emotional intelligence. These two will never accept of course that it is they that are the idealistic oddballs; with such a weak sense of tribal identity that they have to externalise their compassion to every other human on the planet, most of whom would happily kill them and take their stuff. Exactly who is this sort of virtue signalling intended to impress?

    Theedrich displays tribal and tactical thinking, which is quite sensible to anyone who understands how human society actually works. Only deracinated western idealists, with no sense of their own history or culture, would think otherwise. No one respects a man that is constantly apologising. No one respects a man that has no sense of his own people and who bends over and gives away his home to every stranger that happens to be in need.

    If you genuinely believe that all humans are brothers; that racial origins and tribal loyalties don’t matter, then feel free to welcome the invading immigrants into your own home. They will happily take everything you have. Try explaining to them that all men are brothers and that their culture is as valid as yours. You can watch them rape your daughters, right before they ‘pop a cap in your ass’.

    Conservatives have a low mean IQ in the US and UK..And the IQ declines around age 25 goes into reverse..This is why elderly people usually swing to the right..And why younger people tend to be more liberal..

    Study finds link between brain damage and religious fundamentalism

    A new study finds a connection between brain lesions and the ability of a person to consider other beliefs.

    Makes perfect sense, the right are batshit insane..And now we have proof..You have to be batshit to believe such far fetched ideas as the bible..

    Mob is a moron who lacks the ability to read and doesn’t understand the different between IQ and wisdom. He seriously thinks that a teenage geek, raised on a diet of college Marxism, has a better political understanding than men that have watched the world turn to shit for sixty years. Pity the poor loser. Hurry up and post more shite. Your mum is calling you for dinner.

  9. Hello on Wed, 17th Apr 2019 11:50 am 

    >>> This is why elderly people usually swing to the right

    Nope. It’s because at after the age of 30 you’re about settled in your ways, while the world keeps changing around you. And as the world more an more diverges from your static inner picture you wish to go back to the good old days, hence you slowly become a conservative.

    Mob are you a negro by any chance? It’s hard to believe a real person to be as stupid as you. That’s why I’m asking. But no offense if you are, you just can’t do any better, I guess.

    Negro are jesus freaks just like people on the right..There IQ are nearly identical..

    Conservatives have a mean IQ of 93 while liberals have a mean IQ of 106 (highest average in the world)..

    I mean look at our society all the smartest people are liberals..Doctors, scientist, artist, inventors, writers, etc.

    And all the dumbest are right wingers, gun nuts, racist, religious people, nascar fans, country music lovers, etc.

    Antius, All races ARE brothers. Only time and location has given us different looks and abilities to survive. We ALL came out of Africa. American Indian tribes were among the last to reach their final destination, only about 24,000 years ago. The Philippines were settled about 700,000 years ago.

    “In what some scientists are calling a “one-in-a-million find,” archaeologists have discovered a cache of butchered rhino bones and dozens of stone tools on the Philippines’s largest island, Luzon. The find pushes back the earliest evidence for human occupation of the Philippines by more than 600,000 years, and it has archaeologists wondering who exactly these ancient humans were—and how they crossed the deep seas that surrounded that island and others in Southeast Asia.”

    https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/05/ancient-humans-settled-philippines-700000-years-ago-new-fossils-reveal

    “But when Cinq-Mars brought the fragments found at the Bluefish Caves back to the laboratory, he came to an incredible conclusion: humans had actually occupied North America as early as 24,000 years ago.”

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/humans-may-have-arrived-north-america-10000-years-earlier-we-thought-180961957/

    Who is best suited to survive the collapse and regression of civilization? My bet is on the Filipinos. After all those years, they are still self-sufficient and moving up. Not like fat, dumbed down Americans. We shall see.

    “Mob are you a negro by any chance? It’s hard to believe a real person to be as stupid as you.”

    What an incredibly cruel statement. Some people can be incredibly hurtful when hiding behind the anonymity of the internet.

  15. DerHundistLos on Wed, 17th Apr 2019 8:01 pm 

    Antius-

    Explain to me why the following is “Leftist arrogance and nihilism”.

    “There is such a thing as Emotional Intelligence that combines with IQ to produce the best of what humans can be.”

    “As Nature excells with balance, so too do the human species. But as we observe the decimation of the natural world we never question ourselves as being the vital cause of said destruction. No, we become tribal and blame our imagined inferiors which is so much more indolent and convienant than self examination.”

    These are insightful and erudite statements of the human condition.

  16. Cloggie on Wed, 17th Apr 2019 8:14 pm 

    “Mob are you a negro by any chance?”

    Sigh, more clear signs that our right-wing friend from Switzerland has zero understanding of the JQ. I doubt if he even understands where these letters stand for. Only the two smartest guys here, the American (no doubt with German roots) Theedrich and the Englishman Antius fully understand it and so did the Canadian GregT.

    Empire dave understands it a little bit but loves to play stupid and will go at great lengths to deny it.

    Makati will every now and then ventilate that Jews do have enormous power. DerHund (who is closet pro-German) and Siss, simply have no clue about the JQ. Siss even thinks that the Fed is a “government institution” instead of what it really is: the jewish-owned moneybag with which they manage to corrupt the entire US political system.

    Once we had the laughing stock from Texas, boat, who opined that “Germans” ruled America, not Jews, because he had counted Confederate and Israeli flags in his hood and verified that there are more Confederate flags, hence QED. The good people of Dresden would be surprised to learn about that little factoid.

    DMyers understands the JQ, but prefers to remain quiet. The rest: no clue.

    Makati, DerHund, Siss have zero racial motivations. They want “emotional warmth”, values for sheep, they don’t want to fight, love to see everybody as his “brother” (“we are all from Africa, you see”), but sheep invariably end up on someone else his plate. They refuse to see the Darwinian universe for what it is: an eternal battle between rising and declining groups, groups defined by ethnicity and/or religeon.

    Makati, DerHund and Siss and Dave basically have no country. Makati is in Manilla, DerHund in South-America and Dave will be in Italy, the moment the cw2-shit will hit the fan.

    Two days ago I watched BBC Newsnight, a habbit I picked up (again) in the wake of the Brexit drama/farce. Here it is:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRh2G628Wqc

    Guests:

    – (((David Frum))), a [cough] Republican
    – white Dems wimmin
    – smart black guy, on the Trump team

    The BBC rat was afraid that DJT could win a second term, because of the failed Mueller farce and I think that too and love it.

    Commissar Frum…

    http://www.antiwar.com/justin/j032203.html

    …nominally is a “Canadian”, whatever that may mean these days, is in reality Henry Ford’s international kike, “the world’s foremost problem”. He was one of the main advocates behind the, thank-God, failed US attempt to add Iraq to the empire.

    Although he parades as a “Republican” in the BBC video, he gives advice about how to topple Trump! “The African vote needs to be mobilized!”.

    Frum is no Republican, he is a kiken deep stater, who “does” the right-wing part of the US Dems-Reps government party and to his horror has to recognize that Trump hijacked the Reps, no matter how much Trump panders to the kikes with Jerusalem or Golan. He is an out of control hated white guy and needs to be toppled, a notion with which the bbc rat agrees.

  18. makati1 on Wed, 17th Apr 2019 8:56 pm 

    Cloggie, you have it kinda correct. I’m not a “sheep”. I am intelligent enough to avoid a fight if I can, but don’t threaten me or mine or you will be killed. A crossbow bolt in the head is just as effective as a bullet and silent.

    I studied Darwin 50+ years ago. I am well aware of the “survival of the fittest” idea, but what constitutes “fittest”? Not necessarily the biggest or strongest. Not even close.An elephant can be brought down by a virus. It is the life form best suited to the changing conditions that will survive. Likely, the last life form on Earth will be a virus.

    Many “less intelligent” humans, as measured by so called “scientists”, will survive long after the so called “intelligent” humans. Better to know how to raise corn than how to buy stocks. Better to know what wild plants are edible than where the best restaurant is in town. Intelligence is relative. Survival is not.

    BTW: I have an adopted country, the Philippines. A country I chose, not one I was born into. I have my SRRV so I never have to leave it. I have friends and contacts here and appreciate their culture. The US has no culture, only greed. I have lived here for about 11 years and have no regrets for my decision. The days only get better and better. ^_^

    White supremacists have a new radical plan to destroy the civilized world as we know it

    white supremacists are turning to accelerationism theory in America and around the world, the Anti-Defamation League explained in a new report.
    “Fueled by the perception that the future of the white race is bleak, these white supremacists believe they must employ any means necessary to expedite the collapse of the current system,” ADL noted. “Solutions to bring down the system range from the most extreme form, violence, to deliberate political engagement that supports destructive and divisive societal elements.”

    MOB, the US has them beat with lies. The US GDP is about half of what they claim. You can do anything with numbers. The US has been in a Depression since at least 2000.

    http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/gross-domestic-product-charts (-1%)

    http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts (8 to 22%)

    All you have to do is change the formula, and BAM! the US is growing and doing fine! Ignore the crumbling infrastructure, 500,000+ homeless, thousands of stores closing…

    BTW: If the GDP was negative on average of 2% for 18 years, the real GDP is about 40% lower than claimed, meaning that the national debt is actually ~180% of GDP.

    https://www.thebalance.com/national-debt-by-year-compared-to-gdp-and-major-events-3306287

    20.5T X 60% = 12.3T real 2018 GDP, divided by 22T national debt = ~180%, not the 105% claimed by the government.

  34. Antius on Thu, 18th Apr 2019 5:25 am 

    “As if “policemen” will ever stop a civil war if its time has come.”

    The US and UK police states are presently strong enough to contain any internal revolt, probably before you even hear about it on the news. The UK spends more money on surveillance, counter-insurgency and policing (including its secret police force – the ‘Terror Police’) than it does on defence. An insurrection would be a non-starter and suicide mission at present. You probably wouldn’t get past even the early planning stages before you were discovered and jailed as a terrorist, along with anyone that was even tentatively associated with you. Even entirely civic nationalist movements, like National Action in the UK, have been crushed by the authorities as terrorist organisations and their members jailed.

    However, this sort of authoritarian control does depend upon a great deal of money that ultimately comes from public taxes and government borrowing. The approaching debt implosion and resulting depression could provide a window of opportunity for nationalist insurrection in the UK and US. But right now, such an insurrection would not stand a chance. Watchful waiting, along with the development of (presently) non-militant nationalist underground, are the best games in town.

    “– Scotland leaves the UK and goes Europe direct.
    – Ireland reunified
    – England compensated with New England and large parts of Anglo-Canada”

    Scotland is run by a group of political firebrands that are effectively Marxists in nationalist clothing. If Europe lurches to the right, as you seem to think it will, then any appetite amongst these people for joining the European project will rapidly evaporate. Remember, when Britain originally joined the EEC, Scotland was far more Eurosceptic than England.

    “Earliest Data Show More Signs of Recovery for China’s Economy”

    Well, 2 things cloggo, first I don’t get joyful over cherry picked news like you and the other binary agendist on this board. I am a mild doomer and prepper looking for the truth of what is happening so I have an edge in my little local in the Ozarks of the US. I am very happy over the last few years that I can take my doom meter down several notches. I am not a doomer because I want to be. I am also glad the US Empire is in decline and almost over. It means a multipolar world that is more paralyzed to destabilizing events. I believe in balance and power must be balanced. I am not an empire lusting war pig like you are. If I highlight Euro and Sino negative news it is an effort to show how you and makato are cheerleading good news and ignoring the bad from your regions while you spend most of your time here puking anti-American news of every type. Second, you have very little understanding of business, economics and finance (also military matters). You know it just enough to snatched what numbers big or small make your agenda look better and prospects for the US worse. You are the worst kind of intellectual who is compromised by rotten emotions and lies with the facts. Makato is in the same fraudulent group. You two are why I spend more time than I would here. I can’t stand the truth being violated so much.

    “US GDP is about half of what they claim. You can do anything with numbers. The US has been in a Depression since at least 2000.”

    Makato, shadow stats is a useful tool to see how much the world has changed in 2 decades but it has to be put in context. The whole world is in a globalized system that is relatively the same in regards to stats with some differences. Investors rat out lies by their investments. They call them vigilantes and governments are constantly fighting vigilantes. China is the one big difference in the globalized system. Their economy is quasi capitalistic and controlled centrally. Their numbers especially at the local level are compromised by efforts to increase their growth prospects with the locals knowing the central government will rescue them. The top is compromised by party targets. The US numbers are messaged for various reasons but overall more accurate than the Chinese. Yet with so much growth the Chinese have room to fudge the numbers. China is not a Turkey. Shadowstats numbers use previous economic period’s economic criteria that are no longer relevant to current economic reality. We are in a new world of controlled globalism with some old capitalistic elements. Central banks and governments are playing a new game and the statistics reflect this. Trying to say the US is this or that based on these numbers is just more of your binary anti-Americanism. You like cloggo never ran a business or studied finance and economics. The only reason you and cloggo like talking these subjects is when it pushes your agenda. Both of you never talk your bad numbers. This is because you are clueless and actually think these bad numbers are bogus. Both of you are frauds.

    The American Civil war was effectively an attempt by southern states to secede from the authority of Washington. The US crushed this revolt and killed hundreds of thousands of men, women and children in the process.

    If you attempt to repeat that sort of civil war today, you can expect more of the same. Except this time, you won’t be fighting men with muskets and Springfield rifles. You will be attacked by reaper drones and organised SWAT teams armed with automatic weapons. Your every move will be monitored by state surveillance; using AI internet surveillance, satellites, aerial drones, phone taps, cameras with facial recognition, as well as good ol word of mouth betrayal, from turncoats and spies that infiltrate your movement. It will be very difficult to even get such a movement started without the authorities knowing everything about it before you can even get it off the ground. Against those sorts of odds, what hope do you think any insurrection has?

    “World after empire (202*):” – England compensated with New England and large parts of Anglo-Canada – Quebec goes to France
    – Entire West-coast back to Mexico – Most East-coast to black nationalists – Upstate New York to jews – Vancouver to China – Heartland independent, strongly allied to PBM – China first country in the world – Downunder and Taiwan become Chinese – PBM + Heartland or “The North” remains first civilisation on earth.”
    LMFAO, cloggo how is this going to happen? Is your big fantasy Eurotard army going to force this shit? What about all those thousands of NUK weapons? You are constantly talking about an American CW2 but it is Europe erupting in protest and your sacred EU balkanizing. You are one clueless lunatic lost in fantasy and fiction. I have some respect for you on energy matters but the rest of you is so delusional it is better left to comedy.

    “Begin of an era of new white colonialism… in deep space. The ZOG word “racist” will evaporate, just like the Soviet expression “class enemy” evaporated.”
    LOL, more of it “ZOG, white racism, and spec colonization. Double LOL.

    It’s fun to read Euros discuss the US especially those who have never lived here or even traveled much here. The US is not going to have a hard CW2 because there are far too many different power centers. There is too much disunity even within the DC beltway where most of this soft CW2 is happening. The deep state is not even unified anymore. Yes we have the extremist liberals and conservatives howling and gnashing their teeth on the internet but they are a very small percentage of the population. People like cloggo and makato live with these people. It gives them comfort meaning to hear all this extremism. Most Americans live in their local and worry about making a living. The DC beltway on the other hand is where the intrigue is centered much like Rome. The battles are fought there not in the vast spaces of America.

    If the US breaks up much will depend on what the US military allows. States have their control of the military too. In the cities we have strong police forces. All of these forces are concerned with stability. We have a population well-armed which contrary to the binary anti-Americans here presents another force. Forces good and bad will not parade around the countryside without resistance although the US military and paramilitary forces can overcome any location if they choose. They cannot control the whole country so they will focus on the places that support their power. Contrary to the binary anti-Americans here civilians with arms does keep people from messing with other people except that we have lunatics with guns and inner city gangs killing each other. That is the nature of consequences and trade-offs. It is not all bad like anti-Americans would want to believe. I have not heard a Euro yet that understands this country very well. I am not saying the US will not come apart. The US will fail along with the global system. Nobody knows how that system will come apart of when. I believe it will eventually.

    Cloggo and makato hate these numbers. Rich migrating is a good indicator of good and bad of a region.

    “Mapping The Global Migration Of Millionaires”

    “High net worth individuals (HNWIs) – persons with wealth over US$1 million – may decide to pick up and move for a number of reasons. In some cases they are attracted by jurisdictions with more favorable tax laws, or less pollution and crime. Sometimes, they’re simply looking for a change of scenery. Today’s graphic, using data from the annual Global Wealth Migration Review, maps the migration of the world’s millionaires, and clearly shows which countries are magnets for the world’s rich, and which countries are seeing a wealth exodus. It’s no secret that China has been a wealth creation machine over the past two decades. Although the country is still making a number of its citizens very wealthy, over 15,000 Chinese HNWIs still chose to migrate to other countries in 2018 – the most significant migration of any country.”

    At all above:

    I have repeatedly said that I don’t believe that white nationalists can pull of an insurrection out of the blue. In the case of the US, balkenization will be a two-stage rocket: war in Asia + cw2.

    Scenario: China challenging the US in the South China Sea and in Asia in general. That is inevitably going to happen at some point with growing strength of China. If the US bites, we have a serious clash at hand. If tens of thousands of GIs die in Asia with no end in sight only THEN we have the conditions under which an uprising could succeed.

    “scenario” and “if” but little detail. Mostly fantasy without good economic or military understanding. What a waste of effort.

    Global cooling is coming. GOD or the sun shutdown will take care of the immigration problems, overpopulation problems and so on.

    GOD will fix what humans don’t have the courage to fix them self. GOD will cool down the planet until crops failed and people freezes to death.

    Ahmed Quasimodo scenario still a possibility. And if it is, the French authorities would try to cover it up.

    How Will Future Generations Remember Our Time?

    A mounting perfect economic storm born of a convergence of peak oil, climate change, and an imbalanced U.S. economy dependent on debts it can never repay is poised to bring a dramatic restructuring of every aspect of modern life.

    Liar. We have been through this before.

    The era of oil is coming to an end, with global oil production set to halve in the next five to six years. To avoid a global economic slump, the transition to 100% renewables worldwide needs to be accelerated. It is feasible and cheaper than the current system, research shows.

    It shows that with no new investment, global oil production — including all unconventional sources — will drop by 50% by 2025 (Figure 1).

    Why would there be no investment? The oil industry suffered from overproduction and corresponding low prices. Americans drive an SUV now by default. When oil will be at $100+ again, expect a run into smaller cars.

    I love high oil prices!

    $140,- bring it on!

    Is good for the European renewable energy industry.
