Greetings to all you selfish breeders. Apparently the London School of Economics have decided that people are bad for business:
Every £4 spent on family planning over the next four decades would reduce global CO2 emissions by more than a ton, whereas a minimum of £19 would have to be spent on low-carbon technologies to achieve the same result, the research says.
The report, Fewer Emitter, Lower Emissions, Less Cost, concludes that family planning should be seen as one of the primary methods of emissions reduction. The UN estimates that 40 per cent of all pregnancies worldwide are unintended.
Remember when economics meant making people wealthier? These guys circumvented the rules and just decided to boost wealth by knocking off a lot of people. They aren’t an indicator of human progress as far as I can see. You have to love a bunch of Europeans (yes, this means you, England, and don’t deny your geography), still dictating who gets to live on their precious little planet.
The article refers to the Optimum Population Trust, which “campaigns for stabilisation and gradual population decrease globally and in the UK.” These guys alome make me wish the UK was not part of this planet, which seems to be their perception. (I would suggest the Telegraph help you with their editing but they can’t seem to tell the difference between a million and a billion.) Their patrons include “The Population Bomb” writer Paul Ehrlich, Jane Goodall, James Lovelock, snooze-fest TV host David Attenborough, and a bunch of other people the world would be better off without.
They want to see what they call a sustainable rate of decrease at 0.25% per year, as well as balance out immigration to emigraation. Why stop there? Close the borders altogether and you’re stopping growth in its tracks. Also, the modern British woman is having 1.66 babies (according to the CIA world factbook). So, you’re there! Congratulations, OPT.
Since we covered the UK, now we can focus on the real world. Any time you get a bunch of population controllers together, you can bet the pigmentally-enhanced are next on the block. Why else would they be talking about access to proper birth control? Anyone can wander into Boots in downtown London and get some Femdoms. Not so easy for Trang in Ho Chi Minh City. So we have to decide who is “overpopulated” based on a larger scheme of geography.
Is savage Africa overpopulated and the nice little recycloids of Eurpoe not? Well, let’s look to Wikipedia:
Europe: population of 731,000,000, area of 10,180,000 sq. km., or 71.8 people/sq. km.
Africa: population of 922,011,000, area of 30,221,532 sq. km., or 30.5 people/sq. km.
Now I’m sure that there might be more sensitive savannahs in Africa or the amount of desert area is much more sensitive to change. But why is Europe allowed to tell certain populations who is overpopulated? Even densely populated Asia, with nearly four billion people in the world, has a population density of 88.5 people/sq. km. The density in the United Kingdom? 250.9 people/sq. km.! Even places like India still dwarf that with a population of 354.7 people/sq.km., but look which colonizing country corrupted the harmonious nature of the Indians with quinine and penicillin.
So you have to hand it to a group that can’t get proper population control underway in their own country, and yet are ready to sacrifice lives to “family planning” (i.e. abortion) in the name of not angering the planet. These people are not sages predicting the future, but are primitive tribal chieftains casting virgins into the volcano to appease Mother Gaia. Halting energy solutions to depopulate the Earth just because it’s cheaper? Without even any proper resources expressing any evidence of global warming, they want to drain the population of the whole world as a “safe bet.”
In a world of weather extremes, where land is being lost due to rising temperatures, desertification, floods and rising sea levels, the world will not be able to feed, water and sustain even its current 6.8 billion population.
This would be more terrifying if Paul Ehrlich hadn’t been saying it since 1968, where he proposed “sterilants” in the water supply to curb the population. That’s right–poison the water supplies around the world to stop population growth. Aren’t Africans threatened with enough dictators as it is?
I’m predicting that the future of the world is in an enterprising, bright African child’s mind. London’s School of Eugenic Volcano-Worship is the real population problem.
