The cause of climate change is human over population.
There - now its spelt out you cant ignore it.
The side effects of human over population - from the rise in industrial pollution caused by factories producing consumer goods to satisfy the human hordes of the planet, to environmental destruction caused by over use of resources are all symptoms of the same problem - HUMAN OVER POPULATION.
Its not 'particulates' or C02 that is over fishing the oceans - its human beings to feed the demands for fish from other human beings.
Its not particulates or C02 that are chopping down the rainforests - its human beings to meet the demands for resources for other human beings
Its not god melting the ice caps and drowning polar bears - its industrial pollution produced by factories producing goods to satisfy the demands of human beings
Its not extraterrestrials killing tigers, elephants and rhinos - its human beings to meet the demands for those 'commodities' from other human beings.
Its not particulates or CO2 that are over using the land and causing soil depletion - its human beings over growing crops with oil based fertilisers and pesticides to feed the growing human population.
The issue at every level of climate change is human over population.
If there were less people on the planet there would be less industries producing pollution to satisfy the demands of those people.
Pollution rises in direct proportion to the rise in population.
Pollution and population are aspects of the same issue.
Yet the climate change lobby will never admit this, for one simple reason.
The climate change lobby are using the issue of climate change to enrich themselves.
The climate change scientists are paid billions per year to focus in on the plight of the madagascan crested penguin and how its home on an icy island the size of Gordon Browns brain is shrinking each year.
They are paid to shrink the problem to the size of a penguin or a polar bear, and therefore the media can avoid the BIG ISSUE which is human over population.
The big industries dont want a global population reduction, as these people are CONSUMERS.
The more people on the world = more consumers = more profits from peddling their shit to the latest swathe of mug punters.
The industrialists see every screaming new brat in some rat infested shithole around the world as merely a potential new customer, and they want to grow rich selling their products to them and thereby turning every bushman and pastoral nomad into a reebok wearing, x factor watching, coke drinking, armani clad, plasma TV owning consumer whore just like the rest of the morons on the planet.
The industrialists and bankers want to peddle the myth of pollution from 'dirty industries' causing the problem of climate change and that if they fit enough particulate scrubbers like suppositories up the large soot pouring industrial chimneys of the West, India and China that the problem of climate change will be solved.
Quite how stopping 'particulates' and CO2 will stop over fishing, people chopping down trees, over using the land and causing soil erosion, save the tigers and rhinos and stop the growth of industry and the production of commodities is never answered.
Thats because they know that the real problem is over population but that no-one dare admit this.
The Greens are about as honest as the average MP's expense claim form, they NEVER address the issues of over population and mass immigration - simply because they are a bunch of bearded, hypocritical, communist fuckwits with about as much integrity as a Tory Toff lecturing the working class on the benefits of multi-culturalism and immigration from their ivory clad castles in vast expanses of the British countryside ( re Zac Goldsmith and James Bethell) .
The answer is simple.
To defuse the global environment crisis, then humans in places like China, Africa and India must be forced to have less children.
There must be no more aid to developing nations unless they agree on plans for forced family planning.
Trade to nations like China must be reduced until they reduce their populations.
The threat to the world is not WMD, nuclear weapons or terrorism - the true threat is over population.
Unless nations like Ethiopia agree to allow their populations to be sterilised after having one child - then we do not give them any more food aid or financial aid.
Let them deal with their own problems, instead of us funding and feeding them to breed.
The developing world can only stand on its own two feet when it imposes what the late, great comedian Bill Hicks called a 'Food for Fucking Deal' ;
"There's too many fucking people in the world. Someone needs to say that by the way. Tired of this, "Hey hey aren't we the coolest. Humans are so neat." Too many of yer. Quit rutting, just for a fucking day. Let's work out this food/air deal. Then go back to your rutting"
They get paid to stop spitting out kids that will end up as fly covered skeletons on the ITV news which will then be used by the media and Bob Geldoff and the rest of the white, over privileged, middle class elite and happy clappy 'Jeyzuz' lovers to pour billions into the developing world that will merely sustain and subsidise another generation of useless human breeders.
If they agree to stop breeding, we feed them.
If they agree to stop breeding, we give them financial aid to build up their societies and to assist them in organising nation wide family planning schemes.
If they keep breeding, then let nature take its own course.
Kevin Myers: Africa has to learn lessons -- the hard way if necessary
By Kevin Myers
Friday October 30 2009
Writing on these pages two days ago, Concern's CEO Tom Arnold wrote: "I am being constantly asked by people 'Why food shortages in Ethiopia again? Why are we always being asked for money to keep people alive there? What is the Government doing?'"
The questions were good. How did he answer them? Well, he didn't. For he continued. "The implication is that the Ethiopian government is doing nothing. . . The implication is that nothing has changed."
Tom. Do us a favour. Spare us what you think people might be implying when asking these questions, and simply answer them. So back to question one: "Why food shortages in Ethiopia again?" Go on: the answer please. Question two. "Why are we always being asked for money to keep people alive?" The answer, again, please. Question three. "What is the Government doing. . ?" Oh please.
True, later he pointed to a rise in food prices as a sort of general explanation for why six million Ethiopians now need feeding. (But food prices have risen round the world. And six million people are not queueing for foreign relief in India or Brazil). He added that a number of measures were needed, including watershed management, environmental regeneration, greater use of drought resistant crops, da da da da. . . "It takes time to achieve structural strange," he cautioned. Indeed it does. But if structural change is being simply overwhelmed by population increase, then it can achieve nothing.
There's one word that all our aid agencies never use when asking us for more money: demographics. I'll go over this again (just in case there's some other body of state-employed bullying layabouts which hasn't yet hauled me up before the Press Council or An Garda Siochana for having the temerity to disagree with them, and they think now it's their turn to have a go). So let's stick with Ethiopia, which at the height of the famine 25 years ago, had a population of around 34 million. Its population (conservatively) is now 72 million.
Excuse me. Just what on earth are we doing, continuing to sponsor, subsidise, promote, encourage and reward population growth at such catastrophic levels? What will we get, but only tens of millions more Ethiopians expecting us to feed them? Then scores of millions; then hundreds of millions. Though of course, at some stage, sooner or later, we shall stop feeding them, simply because. . . oh, just because.
Ethiopia is the sterling exemplar of why it's time we seriously re-examined our responses to the gathering catastrophe that is Africa.
One, its population growth is out of control. Two, it cannot feed the people that it has, never mind the future population it is generating. Three, its already deplorable water-management skills are deteriorating. Four, rapid environmental degradation is reducing the absolute amount of agricultural land available to grow crops. Five, Islamic fundamentalism is growing amongst Ethiopia's millions of Muslims. Six, for all the billions poured into Ethiopia, we haven't even demanded the basic quid pro quo, that Ethiopia abandon female circumcision, which kills thousands of little girls every year.
In other words, this is the genuine nightmare state, whose only prospects are more population growth, more environmental degradation, and more famine, prompting rescue and chronic dependency: to be followed by more population growth, more environmental degradation and more famine, prompting another rescue, and an even more chronic dependency: followed by even more population growth, et cetera. And that's it. That's been the pattern over the past 25 years, with absolutely no prospect of that pattern changing -- none whatever.
Moreover, this vicious and idiotic cycle is protected and perpetuated by a coercive and dogmatic silence in the lands which fund it. Even to say this cycle is self-destructive madness is to court allegations of racism. When I wrote on this subject last year, I was subjected to a criminal investigation by An Garda Siochana, one half-witted prig in the 'Irish Daily Mail' virtually compared me
with Eichmann, and the Press Council said my remarks were "offensive to Africans in Ireland". Ah, the poor dears.
Listen. There should be nothing quite as offensive to Africans -- here or anywhere -- as Africans starving to death in Africa, by their tens of millions, as they will certainly be, unless Africa's headlong rush to armageddon is halted. That means Africans having to learn simple things like sexual continence, and long-term planning, and deferred reward. We cannot teach them. They must teach themselves these lessons, the hard way if necessary.
They have not yet known the hard way. Ethiopia was rescued by outsiders from its self-made famine 25 years ago, and it then rewarded this kindness by promptly doubling its population, but without doubling its own food supply or its economic base. This is stupidity on an epic scale, for which only Ethiopia is answerable. Furthermore, it's long overdue that the Irish people abandoned their patronising and racist conceit that we can save Africa. We can't. Only Africans can save Africa, and the longer we interfere in their business, and the longer we continue to reward the outstretched begging bowl, then the longer it will take Africa to learn that basic lesson.
