On Mayor Files Lawsuit to Block End of World

I agree with the previous commenter. Further, it is no doubt, large and noble to address the inevitable climate change issues before us. When I first became involved in the environmental movement in the "70s", the battle cry of environmental leaders was the "population explosion". There was a best selling book written about it. Since that time I believe the world's population has more than tripled. There is only one way to reduce over consumption of the world's resources and reduce polution, including global warming. The earth can only renewably sustain a certain number of humans at any one time. Clever conservation practices can help increase that number, but there will alway be a tipping point. This is so obvious it dumbfounds me as to why it is politically incorrect to mention it today when it once was THE answer. It is more so now that ever.
If you want to pine about the way things used to be for poor Zoe, not affording to live in SB and that it doesn't really matter because SB will be a dessert soon anyway. Zoe's entitlement has been compromised. So sad. A reduced the population to 1960's levels would solve her dilemma. But then, if that were the case, maybe Zoe would not even exist. Maybe her Hippie parents would have decided that “0” population growth really was the prudent thing to do to preserve Mother Earth from the ravages of over population. Illegal immigration might not be an issue had the Catholic Church had encouraged it’s followers that birth control was not only OK, but encouraged, to help preserve the world for future generations, and that having 4, 5, or 6 children was politically incorrect and selfish. The same for India and China (which has taken action in this direction although certainly not with the ideal approach). There would be no global warming issues and less tension internationally as to where people can live a reasonable life style. The answer is simple. There are too many people for Mother Earth to support. Those passionate scientists are right. It’s not too late, if we take action now. That action is to support, encourage and ultimately reach “0” population growth. That is truly the only way the earth will survive.
That’s all of course if Earth is not wiped out by being struck by and asteroid or comet in the next 200 years. It is highly more likely than people realize and probably the most probable eventuality to occur before global warming or over population is contained. But that is a topic for another bone dry, over heated or flood decimated day in an overcrowded coffee Americana shop.
