Truth of the matter is , the earth can easily sustain the population .Selfishness , greed , avarice and irresponsible behavior regarding pollution of the environment are the main causes for starvation , plagues ,andpoverty .

He shouldn’t use such extreme language, since it’ll be used against him.

I aborted a post on the GM food guy that suddenly got the scientific method after 15 years of being anti-science.

This is a case where it’s not just the Right Wing nuts that are anti-science. 20 years ago it seemed to me it was more of a left-wing thing. And here it is again.

These are the people who think we should use 10 or 20 times the land mass per person for farming, since GM food is scary to them. In fact, they might as well be Amish for where it is they want to go. Really, we can feed the world’s population without problem if it wasn’t for mismanagement of the resources.

The bigger problem is Climate Change. If this doesn’t get taken care of nothing else will matter.

The cool thing about Climate change is that it will probably force us to learn how to Terra-form the planet. So, IMO, there is a silver lining to this. Then we take that tech elsewhere…. Still, the 2nd part of that is probably not in our lifetimes.

re: #3 TDG2112

The left has historically attracted just as many anti-science crazies as the right. It’s just so off-kilter with the repubs over-run with madmen these that it’s easy to forget.

Love your optimism re: terraforming, but that might just be fantasy.

re: #2 Dark_Falcon

Yep. Over breeding is a problem for any species, but only humans get hysterical if you discuss the topic, and loaded language like “plague” doesn’t help.

Terrafarming just involves the geography of the land , not necessarily the climate …right ? I’m asking , no sarcasm intended .
