You've been an avid denier on here of this period of global warming is entirely driven by the man made burning of fossil fuels, you've extensively argued that you didn't believe the scientific experts and it was just all a ploy by shady businessmen to get rich quick by building wind turbines and solar panels - have you suddenly forgotten what you've been saying all these months???
I wouldn't worry much about population growth if you are (as you are) in denial of global warming because the planet won't be in a position to feed and water the current population with global warming temperatures becoming too hot to sustain the growing of crops and the watering of livestock. let alone anyone else!
The first priority is obviously to stop the fire that is engulfing the house and all within in it before we tend to the kitchen garden to feed us - can't you see that?
Of course in reality we need to be doing both at the same time but if we fuck up the planet, and turn the land into desert and heat the seas to kill off all the fish, then we starve and die - or at least all the poor and frail will, so do you think those effected first in Africa, South America, Asia, etc are just going sit on their bums and let it happen to them?
There's going to be mass migration, a break down in society as we know it.
Yes it all sounds like the plot of a film but we've seen with our own eyes a change in the weather over the last 50 years and we've watched it getting hotter and hotter just over the last 10 years, so where do you think all this is heading and what will it be like 50 years from now in our children and grandchildren's time, and then another 50 years beyond that?
We won't be around of course, so you can act like you want now - nearly everyone else does anyway - but it is your own that will suffer down the line.
I'm not batty enough to think I can change the world, or indeed that the world will change much anytime soon but I'm not stupid enough to be in denial of it and I just do my own tiny bit not add to the global warming myself - that's all I can do - and if that is only a spit in the ocean, well at least I've done what I can.
You can argue with me as much as you like but the science is the science and will happen whether you believe the experts or not.
As I keep saying, it is just as simple as that.
You can politicise, economise and monitories as much as you like but none of that is going to stop the science happening - and it has already begun.
All that we are able to do now is to lesson its impact and this is what all this is about.
