Golgo 13,<b> The Prophet of Doom</b>. You should buy a soap box, go to Hyde Park with a big sign: <b>REPENT! THE END IS NEAR!</b> and sing your litany there. You might ask other Prophets of Doom as Paul Ehrlich or Lester Brown to join you. None of them have ever been close to their prophecies. From the first moment you started to post, I got the strange idea that you were working in the cabinet of some politician, probably Senator McCain, or Lieberman. Finally I see you work in Rep. Roscoe Bartlett’s team. Those flashy graphs were all too familiar. And Rep. Bartlett has a tremendous background, I will admit, but although he shows himself as a <b>non politician</b>, I still have a weird feeling. <b>Once you enter the pig pen, you get mud up your ears.</b> I have seen it among many old friends of mine that went into politics (the pig pen) pretending to stay pure and uncorrupted, were elected senators or even ministers, and finally they got mud all over them (one notorious case is former Argentinean Minister of Economy Cavallo, who is no longer among my friends). This thread has gone from the initial topic “Man killing the Planet” to “Man is Drinking Oil”, with <b>no proposal whatsoever from your part, or any solution to the problem</b> (besides an oil prohibition era). According to one of your statements: It seems that the only way out for supporting what Earth “carrying capacity” allows, is practicing what Thomas Malthus said: “For making room for a new person on Earth someone has to die…” (not the same words, but the exact meaning, you recognize the phrase…). Then following your logic of <b>“ we can go back to the old methods as well, and a population comparable to what was the case back then”</b> Earth population should not exceed 1,5 billion. I wonder what you plan to do with the remaining (or excess --<b>disposable</b>?) 5 billions. How are you going to make them disappear and leave room for the fortunate (fortunate?) future inhabitants of Earth. Gas chambers? Zyklon-B is not an effective gas. Commander Cousteau once advised the use of Atomic bombs to get rid of excess population. Don't pay attention to him, he was a nut. British ecologists really tried to lower India’s birth rates by offering an organic vegetarian hamburger and 5 free tickets to a soccer stadium to all men who accepted vasectomy. (Reuter-Latin, 25-11-75, told about British activists Brett Pollard and Anne McLean, leaders of the “Green World Revolution” working in Kerala, Radrashamon, and Rushucul, India). Then there have been programs of forced sterilization on Hindu women. I have about 2500 newspaper clips of this kind, about sheer stupidity from green activism, including terrorism. I know you haven’t promoted violence –yet. But how can we be sure that your kind of people won’t do it when they installed a 1984 style Big Brother World Government. Isn't Globalization going towards that end? World governance? Central planning? When Kerensky started in April 1917, no one thought his pure sentiments were going to be overtaken by Lenin and Stalin in October. Even Germany's Reich Chancellor Hindenburg supported Adolf Hitler’s advent to power. Then, you now. How will you enforce the killings? Who will determine who’s going to kick the bucket and who’s getting the lucky ticket? Who will be the Judges? Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth?, Perhaps Al Gore (don’t think so, you’re Rep). So, what’s your solution to the presumed future depletion of oil? What’s your bright program? How are you going to save us all?
