- Re: "Anti-Population Zealots Condemning the Human
Race to Extinction"
- A reader asked me to comment on this latest piece on
anti-human population zealots along with abortion. Therefore, I have sharpened
my quill and will create a reasoned response.
- "The "left" must be shaking in their boots
to see the latest trends of the pro-life juggernaut. More and more people
consider themselves pro-life, and favor more restrictions on abortion.
The lean towards being pro-life is growing, especially with the young adult."
- Reality check: no matter how much moralists, religions,
anti-abortionists and the Pope condemn abortion, a mind-numbing 46 million
women choose abortion every year around the planet. A whopping 96 percent
of them use abortion as a secondary form of birth control. In other words,
they didn't have the pill or condoms for their lover. If the U.S. Supreme
court outlawed abortion, it would go back under the table to backroom butchers
at a rate of 1.5 million annually, or women would board "mercy flights"
to England or Canada again as they did in the 1960s.
- Nobody will stop abortion, not by laws, not by moral
hissy-fits, not by religion and not by castigation! While I attend church
every Sunday, I am a realist. If we don't provide birth control and family
planning information to prevent pregnancies, we will continue to see millions
upon millions of abortions for the foreseeable future.
- OVERPOPULATION OF HUMANITY
- "Things will get more dramatic, and time will seem
to accelerate. People will start to realize that population could actually
top out in the year 2050."
- While experts chortle that human population will level
off by 2050, they fail to appreciate that it will continue to grow by adding
another two to three billion before that time. Humanity will hit 7.1 billion
this year, keep adding 1.0 billion every 13 years and reach 9.2 to 10.0
billion by mid century.
- By that time, we will have wrecked the planet beyond
repair. We will have killed off tens of thousands of species. We will have
poisoned our biosphere and disrupted the environment beyond comprehension.
We will have created horrific living conditions in cities around the USA
and the planet where human misery dominates everything. The Great Pacific
Garbage Patch will be so big and that we'll be able to walk across the
Pacific filled with plastic. Our 80,000 poisons will disrupt DNA for animals
and ourselves. By 2050, we will be fighting wars for energy and screaming
- I laugh myself sick at men like the Pople and other nut-bags
that think we can expand the human race forever. The Pope and other major
religions stick their heads into the sand and into the past. They are
- "Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy
West not to stem the migrant tide [that adds 80 million net gain annually
to the planet], but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their
horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all-ten billion humans packed
onto an ecologically devastated planet." Dr. Otis Graham, Unguarded
- Experts think that humans will become suddenly smart
by 2050 and start winding down their birth rates. But, by that time, as
illiteracy dominates most of those and our society-what do you think illiterate
people do-go to the opera? No, they stay home and procreate more of themselves.
As humans add 137 million new babies annually, there is no way to educate
them, so they will birth more of them. Where did I get those numbers?
- Check out that 57 million humans die every year planet-wide.
Humans replace that 57 million and add another net gain of 80 million.
That's 137 million more babies to educate annually. We cannot do it. Thus,
I would like to see how we're going to stop the human herd by 2050.
- Finally, the big arbiter will be oil energy. It will
not allow us to feed ourselves and our enormous population once it runs
out. Even if it didn't run out, we cannot keep up with feeding 10 billion
humans because we won't be able to access arable land. But if we could,
we still not be able to pay for it as to the horrific cost of energy.
- "The cheap oil age created an artificial bubble
of plentitude for a period not much longer than a human lifetime....so
I hazard to assert that as oil ceases to be cheap and the world reserves
move toward depletion, we will be left with an enormous population...that
the ecology of the earth will not support. The journey back toward non-oil
population homeostasis will not be pretty. We will discover the hard way
that population hyper growth was simply a side-effect of the oil age.
It was a condition, not a problem with a solution. That is what happened
and we are stuck with it." James Howard Kunstler, The Long Emergency
- We stand in a Faustian Bargain that will end in Hobson's
Choice. Be absolutely certain that Mother Nature enjoys the last laugh.
Brutal, benign, ruthless and effective in her ability to cull the human
race with the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: disease, pestilence, starvation
- If we continue on our merry, stupid and arrogant path
by adding 100, 200, 300 million to the USA, we will find ourselves in the
crosshairs of Mother Nature's final equation. We're well on our way in
