    In an earlier critique of environmentalism, I wrote this:

    1. "What the take-away? Environmentalists view mankind as a virus, a disease that must be eradicated. In 2011, [Paul] Ehrlich’s wife wrote a piece in the LATimes, comparing humanity to cancer: “Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society.” Overpopulation: Perpetual growth is the creed of a cancer cell, not a sustainable human society - Los Angeles Times
    a. Gee….I’ll bet these folks would be in favor of a President who favored infanticide. And that’s just what we have."


    And, viola...what rabbit pops out of the cosmic rabbit hole to verify the above?

    2. "Sir David Frederick Attenborough is a British broadcaster and naturalist.
    His career as the face and voice of natural history programmes has endured for 60 years. He is best known for writing and presenting the nine Life series, in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit, which collectively form a comprehensive survey of all life on the planet."
    David Attenborough - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    And...he spills the beans....today:

    3. "BBC Legend David Attenborough Labels People a 'Plague'

    4. National TV treasure David Attenborough has turned prophet of doom by calling humanity "a plague." He warned in the latest issue of The Radio Times that mother nature shall unleash catasphrophic disasters unless the human race changed its behaviour to slow down population growth.

    5. "We are a plague on the earth," warned the presenter of BBC documentary series such as Africa.

    "It's coming home to roost in the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change, its sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde."


    6. "Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us and the natural world is doing it for us right now," said Attenborough."
    BBC Legend David Attenborough Labels People a 'Plague' - IBTimes UK

    A warning: Mother Earth Gaia will get you!




    Need context for this lunacy?
    Let me reprise the following:

    While the intellectual father of environmentalism is the philosopher Hegel, who posited two aspects that make ecology possible: a) the idea of the oneness of everything, and b) the superiority of the collective as compared to the individual (a very German concept!). But the emotional daddy is none other than Thomas Malthus. And Liberals are nothing, if not emotional.

    a. Malthus originated the view that the food production of the world would increase arithmetically (1-2-3-…), while the human population would increase geometrically (1-2-4-8…). Conclusion: mass starvation and epidemics. Sounds ‘environmental’ already, doesn’t it?

    b. Malthus passed on in1834- yet his view continues in the hearts and minds of Progressives, today, who have expanded the vision to pollution and environmental damage.

    c. BTW…Malthus has been proven wrong over and over, based on agricultural advances, and technological innovation.


    Progressive environmentalists.
    They favor the deaths of human being.

    He's a perfect example of the mentality of the enviro whacko's that populate this board. I find it amusing that he advocates the death of billions of people but he leaves himself out of the equation..why?

    Is he special? If so, how so.

    He obviously lacks the courage of his convictions. Not unusual among modern liberals.

    Let's remember that eugenics was the pride and joy of Progressives, right up to the time of FDR....until the horrors of the Holocaust was revealed.

    1. Madison Grant, eugenicist, was responsible for one of the most famous works of scientific racism, “The Passing of the Great Race,” sold some million and a half copies, and played an active role in crafting strong immigration restriction and anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. Grant's works of "scientific racism" have been cited to demonstrate that many of the genocidal and eugenic ideas associated with the Third Reich did not arise specifically in Germany, and in fact that many of them had origins in other countries including the United States.
    Edwin Black: War Against the Weak. Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race, Four Walls Eight Windows: 2003, pp. 259, 273, 274-275, 296

    a. After eugenics was discredited by Nazi use, leading American eugenicists turned to contraception and abortion for population control. In 1953 they issued a document entitled "Freedom of Choice for Parenthood: A Program of Positive Eugenics," in which they linked so-called "voluntary parenthood" to natural selection.

    Nothing has changed.....except for their ascent into power.

    You know, PC, you have graduated from a loon, to an outright liar.

    Whatever your problem with life is, neither progressives nor real conservatives have anything to do with it. You really should be looking into some psychological help.

    He's a liberal. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM is absolutely indispensable for the survival of the species, from pseudo-intellectual talking heads like Attenborough to drooling mouth-breathers like TruthDon'tMatter.

    Just ask them.

    What has she lied about?

    NOTE: Your butthurt is not admissible evidence. Sorry if that utterly disarms you.

    There you go tossing that word around again as if you were some virtuous individual which you have shown repeatedly you are not. Here is a good site dealing with global demographics......and it shows that all of your predictions were wrong.....yet again.

    Will you EVER get one right?

    I doubt it highly.

    In case of a discrepancy between reality and an AGW cultist -- reality is wrong.

    Right, Roxy?

    I never lie.
    Ever.

    The fact that you fabricate this charge simply means that you cannot offer a response to the OP.


    True?
