Not that I care about CO2 emissions, but it does show no signs of "de-growth". The government lockdowns being a horrible exception.

I know, it's crazy as shit, ain't it?
The West is all about pushing girls into high power careers and preventing pregnancy, and if it does happen, killing the baby. All the while importing 3rd world to pick up the slack. Sure have to wonder if the West still has the head on straight.

If you think overpopulation is a problem and don't support large scale immigration into first world countries that makes you an eco-fascist. I guess that makes two of us!

I get the point that overconsumption is a bigger problem than overpopulation given that population growth is concentrated mainly in countries like Nigeria that have much lower per capita consumption. However, it sure seems stupid for environmental groups to advocate for further population growth in first world countries via immigration from third world or developing countries that have low per capita consumption.

People don't think things through. The knee jerk reaction.

When faced with multiple undesirable choices we kind if freak out, can not commit to the analysis, so we just go with out gut. "Screw it, do this!"

It is just the way we are. Not mean or nasty, but limited and overwhelmed.
