Sustainable growth is an oxymoron

Get History every day at the Register

50 years ago, 1963: Thousands of AFL-CIO sponsored demonstrators walked around Columbus with signs protesting planned legislative changes tightening unemployment and workmen's compensation regulations.

25 years ago, 1988: Land, air, and water resources vital to man's survival were being overpowered by the crush of the world's burgeoning population which grew by 220,000 people a day, or 150 humans a minute in 1988, a U.S. report said. The world population was over 5 billion and expected to reach 6 billion by the end of the century.

10 years ago, 2003: A Berlin Township man tried multiple times to shoot a groundhog, missed, and shot holes in a neighbor's summer cottage instead. He entered the house and patched holes, but the owner returned to find three bullet holes in his windows and a poor patch job on his walls. He was still debating whether to file charges.

To the central planning Warmers; people are the cause of AGW.

For the 'good' of the planet they wouldn't object seeing a few billion Earthlings "terminated."

Like all authoritarian-totalitarians, they believe themselves to be intellectually superior and think that they should make the "cut."

Maybe deniers are morally bankrupt when using economics as an excuse to do nothing in the short term. Gains made short term through ignoring the facts to create your wealth at a cost for future generations.

What a crock. Please tell me that you didn't watch that entire thing. Everything we have and use on this planet came from this planet. It can't run out. This planet was taking care of itself long before we were here and it will for a long time after. That frippin guy acted like he was a preacher in a church! I couldn't get past 2 minutes.

luv, you are exactly the person he is talking about with the attitude of oh well, it'll take care of itself.

Excellent. "He entered the house and patched holes, but the owner returned to find three bullet holes in his windows and a poor patch job on his walls. He was still debating whether to file charges."

You see how we should resolve our own affairs?

So in that 25 years, the global population went from 5 billion to 7 billion. Call that sustainable? "Can't run out"? Geez, stuff is already running out - peak oil, grand banks cod, and much more.
Stunning ignorance. Would you spout that nonsense if you were not anonymous?

@ AJ Oliver:

So how many brown, black and yellow people should be eliminated in order to comfortably fit the Earth?

Thanks for helping to prove my point about the mindset of the Aryan Nazi Warmers.
