(NaturalNews) In the modern era, uber-left wing academics who view environmentalism as a religion and take on blind faith that the world is being destroyed by the infestation of human beings have long considered and discussed how best to achieve “population control” and even population reduction.
Most have been careful not to actually state what it is they would really like to see: the mass murder of billions of people, so they could “save” the planet through avoidance of destruction by humans. But even a reasonably astute observer can see through the veneer of their “concern” and figure out what they really want.
One recent academic paper serves as a perfect example of this hiding our zest for depopulation by any means mentality. Corey J. A. Bradshaw and Barry W. Brook, both of the Environment Institute and School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide in Adelaide, Australia, note that even a loss of 2 billion people over the course of five years still would not be enough of a depopulation effort to do the earth much good.
‘Catastrophic human event’ needed?
The paper, titled, “Human population reduction is not a quick fix for environmental problems,” states the issue thusly, in a summary; note that the authors have already essentially concluded what the problem is and who is responsible (my emphasis):
The planet’s large, growing, and overconsuming human population, especially the increasing affluent component, is rapidly eroding many of the Earth’s natural ecosystems. However, society’s only real policy lever to reduce the human population humanely is to encourage lower per capita fertility. How long might fertility reduction take to make a meaningful impact? We examined various scenarios for global human population change to the year 2100 by adjusting fertility and mortality rates (both chronic and short-term interventions) to determine the plausible range of outcomes. Even one-child policies imposed worldwide and catastrophic mortality events would still likely result in 5-10 billion people by 2100. Because of this demographic momentum, there are no easy ways to change the broad trends of human population size this century.
Except, perhaps, some sort of mass casualty/pandemic/world war? That is the possibility the authors examine in the body of their work. In the paper’s abstract, the authors talk of the “inexorable demographic momentum” of the growing human population, which is, of course, “rapidly eroding Earth’s life-support system” (though there is no proof of this, notice how the authors state it as fact).
