It is interesting that only China is making a serious attempt to limit
growth with it's one child policy and they are dead serious about it. It
sounds harsh but they will probably avert millions of horrible deaths by
One hundred million couples with a third child add one hundred million
additional people to the planet and they all need recourses and space. I
really get irritated at some self proclaimed environmentalist with 3 or 4
kids trying to limit my property rights. The president should get on a
bully pulpit and talk about responsible family size. With that said - I
don't see it ending well. It is inevitable that we will become as crowded
as India with slums to match. Also - big business loves cheap abundant
I think the next thermonuvlear war would explode from Iran and
Those Muslim nations had been growing at a demencial pace, well over
2,5% over tha past 50 years. They are living in very arid climates,
and growing up faster than sudamericans and africans.
This is themonuclear clock bomb ticking.
Of course, growth is limited. We will keep growing till everything is
exploding in pieces, or collapsing. Perhaps we need a good plague, or
a thermonuclear war to stop the demented growth.
In some place there is more room and water to grow food. But in many
other places there are plenty of land but no water to grow food. Just
take a look at the world map. You need to learn a little geography.
In the US school do not teach much geography.
we would not lack energy for the next millennium, but not at the rate
we are spending now. If the rate of consumption goes down to 1/1000
rate that our present consumption there would be not any trouble to
have some candles, and we would have some wind mills to produce
electricity, and some dams also. What if instead of 6.7 billion
people we were just 6.7 million only? It would be much easier, isn't
In fact what actually happened is that NOT ONE modern first world
country is even self replacing on population if you take out immigration.
No exploding in pieces or collapsing either.
Clearly the first world doesnt need anything like that. JUST industrialization.
Wrong, as always. The only thing we have any problem with is
transport fuels and that is trivially fixable by changing to nukes and
heating out houses with the power from them instead of wasting natural
gas on heating houses and use that as a transport fuel for our cars.
Completely pointless going that route.
Makes a hell of a lot more sense to use nukes and heat our houses as well.
Not even possible.
Nope, what would be needed to get to that would be nothing like much easier.
