Evidently in the tradition of Malthus and Ehrlich, a latest report released by the Royal Society predicts a “downward spiral of financial and environmental ills” if the world’s population is not quickly substantially curbed. The study, entitled, “People And The Planet,” openly calls for Western deindustrialization, increased “family planning” (especially in the Third Globe), implementation of Agenda 21, and a solidification of the existing claims that population increases are straight relevant to environmental degradation inside of the public discourse.
People And The Planet:
The report, whose alleged aim was to assess the state of humanity for the subsequent 100 years and offer suggestions for its improvement, calls for the concerns of population and consumption be pushed to the top of the international political and financial agendas.
The report starts by stating that “The number of folks living on the planet has in no way been increased, their levels of consumption are unprecedented and vast alterations are taking place in the environment.” This statement, of course, is genuine. Yet the quantity of individuals on the planet, as it at the moment stands, is not accountable for these changes. This much has been repeatedly demonstrated.
Nevertheless, the report establishes two concerns that it claims are definitely vital to the health and wellbeing of the planet as well as “future generations” – population development and the consumption economic system.
The report states:
The annual price of international population development has slowed from its peak at over 2.0% in the mid 1960s fertility charges have fallen so that in 2010 almost 48% of globe population had a total fertility of significantly less than 2.1 young children per woman (UN 2011a). Even so, rapid population growth continues in some parts of the globe. The upward population trend will not attain its peak for another 40 years or more because present day kids and the unborn have nevertheless to have children themselves.In relation to the consumption situation, it says:
The second key problem facing the planet is that, taken as a total, per capita consumption is rising. Complete consumption will continue to boost as the population gets greater, as a lot more folks on the planet means a lot more mouths to feed and far more goods to satisfy their aspirations. Folks depend on their natural environment for meeting many of these needs and desires but overconsumption of material sources is eroding this natural capital. Entry to ample meals, water and fuel for everyone is already a issue (UNDP 2011).After a wonderful deal of discourse regarding the state of the world’s poor and the escalating level of environmental degradation, “People And The Planet” finally arrives at the familiar conclusion deduced by population reductionists of each generation – that human population growth is at present at a state that will quickly outstrip the resources offered. In other words, as posited by Thomas Malthus, Paul Ehrlich, and Ted Turner – indefinite development is not achievable in a finite globe.
Early eugenicists such as Thomas Malthus have prolonged been verified incorrect. These more current myth purveyors such as Paul Ehrlich and John Holdren have also been uncovered as nothing at all a lot more than anti-human propagandists serving a considerably larger agenda than that which is presented to the public.
Now, even after the failures of these theories and predictions, the Royal Society, itself entirely overtaken by the eugenics movement many years ago, has made “People And The Planet,” another piece of apocalyptic propaganda that will no doubt be established false just as its predecessors have been in the past.
But the report is not only a critique of the population “boom.” In fact, the Royal Society researchers are forced to admit that there is no population boom due to the truth that there has been a drastic reduction in fertility of the common person, with the notable exception of much of the Third Planet. It states, “Even though the common annual rate of population modify peaked in the 1960s at 2% and now stands at 1.1% per year, the absolute price of development peaked at 89 million per annum in 1988 and now stands at 78 million . . . ”
That becoming stated, the report does provide 9 recommendations as to how to fight what it claims is an unavoidable disaster so prolonged as people continue to reproduce. These recommendations are acquainted to anybody who has been following the eugenics/population reduction/eco-fascist agenda for any length of time. They are as follows:
The international community need to bring the 1.3 billion men and women living on significantly less than $1.25 per day out of absolute poverty, and minimize the inequality that persists in the globe today. This will require focused efforts in essential policy regions such as financial development, schooling, family planning and health.
