    •  People have lived in tents (0+ / 0-)

      for hundreds of thousands of years.  Millions still do.  The industrial revolution must be reversed to save the planet.  Otherwise we are all doomed by climate change.

      •  crazy (0+ / 0-)

        It's not the industrial revolution. It's too many people. If we go back to living in tents, we aren't going to stay cold. We will still be building fires to cook and keep warm. I would wager that would be worse for the planet than the way we keep warm and fed now.

        Slap a raincoat on the ole willie.

        •  So war is the answer? (0+ / 0-)

          Maybe the other horsemen of the apocalypse should be unleashed too?  Cutting the population in half to save the planet won't be too popular with those who must be eliminated.

          Why not just let GW run its course to reduce the population accordingly?

          •  Think first (0+ / 0-)

            Sheesh, thinkfirst. . .you should do as your name implies. Just because one believes the population is too large  does not mean one advocates wars or any other means to decrease those numbers other than simply good family planning.

            Slap a raincoat on your willie for the sake of the planet. It's really quite simple.

            •  Yeah, it has worked so well for the past 50 years (0+ / 0-)

              Birth control is a non-starter in the developing world where population growth is out of control.  So your answer is to do more of what obviously doesn't work.  Good plan.

              •  without (0+ / 0-)

                ...attacking population, ever thing else is futile.

                •  "Attacking Population" (0+ / 0-)

                  Developed countries do not have populations out of control. In fact, the opposite is true in Japan, Germany and Russia.

                  The solution is economic development, not birth control.

                    How is that even relevant.? There are 6 3/4 billion people on the planet. The atmosphere is warming. The oceans are becoming acidic and are dieing. They are being overfished all across the globe. The traditional fishermen of Somalia, whose fishing grounds have been overfished by interlopers, have now resorted to piracy. China, because they have ahad to deal with this problem for a very long time has bought up oil fields around the globe, preparing for the days of dwindling supplies. They have also bought up strategic points around the globe and built their military, in secret, to unprecedented strength. Are they preparing to wage battle when the time comes? I suspect so.

                    The point is, as our population continues to rise. . .

                                EXPONENTIALLY

                    . . .and as use for oil increases at an EXPONENTIAL RATE GREATER THAN THE POPULATION RATE, the natural forces are lining up for a grand scale human disaster.

                    And we sit idly by, twiddling our collective thumbs, argueing about whether greenhouse gasses are a contributing factor and whether developed countries birth rates are high enough.

                    We are, in fact, doomed. There's no way out. The human race is going to STUPID itself to death.
