Arrow Scientists: The Earth Requires Population Reduction. - 11-05-2019, 05:02 PM

Uh OH.

Global Human Population Reduction.

It appears scientists have been listening to me.

Seems to be a consensus. Therefore it must happen.


Climate Changed
Earth Needs Fewer People to Beat the Climate Crisis, Scientists Say
More than 11,000 experts sign an emergency declaration warning that energy, food and reproduction must change immediately.


Forty years ago, scientists from 50 nations converged on Geneva to discuss what was then called the “CO2-climate problem.” At the time, with reliance on fossil fuels having helped trigger the 1979 oil crisis, they predicted global warming would eventually become a major environmental challenge.

The scientists got to work, building a strategy on how to attack the problem and laying the groundwork for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s preeminent body of climate scientists. Their goal was to get ahead of the problem before it was too late. But after a fast start, the fossil fuel industry, politics and the prioritization of economic growth over planetary health slowed them down.

Now, four decades later, a larger group of scientists is sounding another, much more urgent alarm. More than 11,000 experts from around the world are calling for a critical addition to the main strategy of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy: there needs to be far fewer humans on the planet.

“We declare, with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from around the world, clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency,” the scientists wrote in a stark warning published Tuesday in the journal BioScience.

While warnings about the consequences of unchecked climate change have become so commonplace as to inure the average news consumer, this latest communique is exceptionally significant given the data that accompanies it.

When absorbed in sequence, the charts lay out a devastating trend for planetary health. From meat consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and ice loss to sea-level rise and extreme weather events, they lay out a grim portrait of 40 years of squandered opportunities.

The scientists make specific calls for policymakers to quickly implement systemic change to energy, food, and economic policies. But they go one step further, into the politically fraught territory of population control. It “must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity,” they write.

The problem is enormous, yet the signatories still manage to strike an upbeat tone. For all the lost chances, progress is being made, they contend.

“We are encouraged by a recent surge of concern,” the letter states. “Governmental bodies are making climate emergency declarations. Schoolchildren are striking. Ecocide lawsuits are proceeding in the courts. Grassroots citizen movements are demanding change, and many countries, states and provinces, cities, and businesses are responding.”

The report, however, comes one day after U.S. President Donald Trump began the formal procedure of withdrawing America from the Paris climate accord.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

Actually, the earth just needs fewer people in certain places.

New York, California, Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Venezuela, North Korea, etc...

We haven't had a world war in a few years...... Could any of you think of a better way to get rid of a bunch excess population in a great big hurry!?


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

I wonder if PJ will step up and do his part along with all the others that want to save the planet from Global Warming.

Scientists have spoken.

Step up and do your part.

According to the left when scientists have a consensus it must be true.

Since this consensus does not involve taxes, the redistribution of wealth and forcing people to make their lives miserable in order to save the planet.
I doubt the left will sign on.

After all.
When you have to make a choice of substance that actually addresses the supposed problem directly and is an actual solution.
That means both power and money will be lost.

There is a lot of power and money to be made by treating symptoms and not offering tangible solutions.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

Don't worry. That's one thing the communists actually are good at.


Don't believe everything you think.

I did not think 11,000 people could make a living being a scientist, could it be the study is flawed?

Something seems to be flawed ... check this out :

https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/R43061.pdf

Here is an excerpt from the Summary:

"In 2016, there were 6.9 million scientists and engineers (as defined in this report) employed in the
United States, accounting for 4.9% of total U.S. employment. Science and engineering
employment was concentrated in two S&E occupational groups, computer occupations (57.6%)
and engineers (23.6%), with the rest accounted for by S&E managers (8.4%), physical scientists
(3.8%), life scientists (4.1%), and those in mathematical occupations (2.4%). From 2012 to 2016,
S&E employment increased by 747,040, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.9%, while
overall U.S. employment grew by 1.9% CAGR. Viewed only in aggregate, the increase in S&E
employment masks the varied degrees of growth and decline in detailed S&E occupations. "

I'll do a little math for you ....

physical scientists are 3.8% of 6,900,00 .... 262,200
life scientists are 4.1% if 6,900,000 .... 282,900

That's over half a million scientists in the USA alone. Then recall that there are other countries

Ahh, there is the connection. It's all Don's fault. Let's not forget about how many Chinese and Indian's are on the planet.
