NOT JUST ANY GREENIE, BUT THE PM'S CHIEF ADVISOR!
TOL - VIA HOT AIR:
UK population must fall to 30m, says Porritt
JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.
Porritt’s call will come at this week’s annual conference of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), of which he is patron.
The trust will release research suggesting UK population must be cut to 30m if the country wants to feed itself sustainably.
Porritt said: “Population growth, plus economic growth, is putting the world under terrible pressure.
Population growth is one of the most politically sensitive environmental problems. The issues it raises, including religion, culture and immigration policy, have proved too toxic for most green groups.
However, Porritt is winning scientific backing. Professor Chris Rapley, director of the Science Museum, will use the OPT conference, to be held at the Royal Statistical Society, to warn that population growth could help derail attempts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
- AGW - IT ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO AGW! SOMETHING WHICH DOESN'T EVEN EXIST!
- THIS IS WHY I CALL THESE GREENIES ECO-NUTSIES! THEY ARE INSANE!
- ECONOMIC GROWTH IS EVIL TO THESE TURDS!
- THEY WANT YOU TO HAVE FEWER KIDS - LIKE THE TYRANTS OF CHINA, THEY WANT TO DECIDE WHO HAS THEM AND HOW MANY.
THEY'LL BE ABLE TO QUIETLY AND SOFTLY EUTHANIZE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS SIMPLY BY WITHHOLDING/RATIONING HEATHCARE TO THE ELDERLY - AND "LETTING" THEM DIE, PEACEFULLY - LIKE TERRI SCHIAVO.
IS THIS A GOOD THING?
SHOULD GOVERNMENT HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE WHO HAS BABIES AND HOW MANY THEY HAVE !?
OR HOW LONG IS LONG ENOUGH TO LIVE!?
LEFTISTS DON'T WANT HUMANS LIVING BETTER, LONGER LIVES WITH HIGHER LIVING STANDARDS; THEY WANT HUMANS TO LIVE IN ACCORD WITH THEIR WORLDVIEW.
THIS IS TYRANNY. THIS IS THE GENOCIDAL ROAD TO SERFDOM. IT ALWAYS IS WITH THE LEFT...
- FACT: SINCE THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, THE HUMAN POPULATION HAS GONE UP MORE THAN A HUNDREDFOLD AND AS POPULATION HAS INCREASED, SO HAVE LIFE-SPANS AND LIVING STANDARDS.
- FACT: THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING THE LONGEST AND RICHEST LIVES ARE THOSE WHO LIVE IN THE MOST INDUSTRIALIZED REGIONS - WITH THE MOST FREE MARKETS AND THE MOST TRADE.
- YET THE LEFT DESIRES TO REDUCE INDUSTRIALISM AND HAMPER FREE MARKETS AND HAMPER TRADE.
- THE LEFT OPPOSES THE VERY THINGS WHICH ACTUALLY IMPROVE LIFE.
