The world's other species, vegetation, resources, oceans, arable land, water supplies and atmosphere are being destroyed and pushed out of existence as a result of humanity's soaring reproduction rate.
“ -If only one child per female was born as of now, the world's population would drop from its current 6.5 billion to 5.5 billion by 2050, according to a study done for scientific academy Vienna Institute of Demography.
“Doing nothing, by contrast, will result in an unsustainable population of nine billion by 2050. Humans are the only rational animals but have yet to prove it. Medical and other scientific advances have benefited by delivering lower infant mortality rates as well as longevity. Both are welcome, but humankind has not yet recalibrated its behavior to account for the fact that the world can only accommodate so many people, especially if billions get indoor plumbing and cars.
“The fix is simple. It's dramatic. And yet the world's leaders don't even have this on their agenda in Copenhagen. Instead there will be photo ops, posturing, optics, blah-blah-blah about climate science and climate fraud, announcements of giant wind farms, then cap-and-trade subsidies.
“None will work unless a China one-child policy is imposed. Unfortunately, there are powerful opponents. Leaders of the world's big fundamentalist religions preach in favor of procreation and fiercely oppose birth control. And most political leaders in emerging economies perpetuate a disastrous Catch-22: Many children (i. e. sons) stave off hardship in the absence of a social safety net or economic development, which, in turn, prevents protections or development.
“China has proven that birth restriction is smart policy. Its middle class grows, all its citizens have housing, health care, education and food, and the one out of five human beings who live there are not overpopulating the planet.
“For those who balk at the notion that governments should control family sizes, just wait until the growing human population turns twice as much pastureland into desert as is now the case, or when the Amazon is gone, the elephants disappear for good and wars erupt over water, scarce resources and spatial needs.
“The point is that Copenhagen's talking points are beside the point. The only fix is if all countries drastically reduce their populations, clean up their messes and impose mandatory conservation measures.”
…This one-child-per-family idea, if it becomes global public policy, will guarantee a Islamic jihad against the Copenhagen government coalition, and that means a global jihad, Islam vs. everyone else.
With stifling omnipresent government regulations and people nearly all herded into cities (historically slave centers), coupled with comprehensive high tech monitoring and a amoral technologically armed military and disarmed population, control of people/labor today is a given.
This is already a “Prison Planet”. (Slaves in the Old South and under Pharaoh in Egypt were only taxed 10%-20%.)
People live with the illusion of freedom, like a gold fish does swimming around a bowl with the Powers That Be watching.
This is the religion of the Gaia, Mother Earth, environmentalists’ crowd. Government is, after all, always the enactment of someone’s religious ideas into laws that specify the rules of human action/interaction – economics.
…If Copenhagen was consistent to its earth-saving beliefs, it would implement this population control measure to solve the so-called climate crisis; it would also declare Islam to be the primary enemy of “Mother Earth”.
…It all comes down to which philosophical position one holds as ultimate. Either “The earth was made for man” (with good stewardship a priority), or “Man was made for the earth”, …either a primary supernatural or a natural perspective respectively, one or the other, no middle ground.
…Mankind being mankind, human nature being unchanged, history being history, this comprehensive growing global upheaval has the risk of ending in plague (probably human engineered) and a horrific global population reducing war, the “Mother Of All Wars”. …
From The Daily Reckoning
“Again, they exaggerated. While Americans built too many shopping malls, the Chinese built too many factories. Then, in 2008-2009 came the ‘greatest collapse in world trade in history,’ says Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman. Americans - their biggest customers - rediscovered thrift. You might think China would realize it had too much capacity and back off. Instead, it rolled more steel. It built more factories and offices...entire cities.
“If stimulus spending is a measure of stupidity, the Chinese are three times as dumb as Americans. Both governments respond to correction by doing more wrong than they did before. Loans in China are rising by about 40% of GDP annually. The money supply is soaring at nearly 30% a year. ‘We estimate that [fixed capital formation] accounted for 70% of China's growth in 2008 and close to 90% of China's first half of 2009 growth,’ says a report from Pivot Capital.
“It is just a matter of time until this capital spending bubble blows up. But China is full of bubbles. In another example of its central planning, it made the ancient practice of infanticide state policy. One couple/one child was the rule. Missing girls was the result. Then, when the boys grew up, they discovered that their brides were missing too. The working age population of China is collapsing. There were 7 workers to every old person in 1990. Now, there are barely 4. By 2035, there will be only 2. What happened to the workers? They are the missing children of the missing girls who then became missing mothers. And by 2040, 397 billion old people - more than the total populations of France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the UK combined - will be missing the support of those missing workers.”
How does Israel, with fewer people than the state of New Jersey, no natural resources, and hostile nations all around, produce more tech companies listed on the Nasdaq than all of Europe, Japan, South Korea, India and China combined?
The MIT Real Estate Center says that commercial property prices have dropped almost 42% over the past 2 years.
As a result of that drop, about 55% of the $1.4 trillion commercial mortgages that will mature in the next five years are underwater.
The delinquency rate for commercial mortgages climbed to 5% in October.
A year ago the delinquency rate was just 0.77%.
About half of all commercial mortgages sit on the balance sheets of smaller banks.
So the massive number of bank failures this year is significantly attributable to losses from commercial real estate.
Late last month, CIT Group, one of the largest commercial real estate finance companies in the world filed for bankruptcy.”
