Nothing encapsulates the Fake Left’s hypocrisy better than the below whinge by The Guardian over the world’s population “crisis”:
…there has been a deep and potentially catastrophic failure by the west in promoting a measure on which the future health of our planet depends: limiting numbers of our species. Until this basic task is achieved, virtually every measure we take to tackle global heating will be negated by the energy demands of the extra billions we have added to global populations…
Today there are about 7.7 billion men, women on children on Earth, a staggering figure given that a century ago, there were only 1.9 billion. And although populations have stabilised in many regions, in particular Europe and North America, figures released by the UN this month show global numbers are now growing at the alarming rate of about 100 million every 14 months. By 2050, the Earth’s population will have hit 9.7 billion and it will continue to rise, reaching a figure of about 10.9 billion by 2100.
These are the kind of population numbers we associate with simple organisms swimming in a pond, not those of a big-brained omnivore that requires 3,000 calories a day to survive. If there are 10 billion of us, every forest, valley and piece of land will have to be turned to agriculture to feed us…
But anytime somebody in Australia argues to slow Australia’s turbo-charged population growth by returning immigration back to historical levels:
The Guardian is quick to label them racist or xenophobic, as Greg Jericho so succinctly put it:
Immigration – because there are many desperate to hate – must be treated with extreme care by politicians and journalists, and certainly with more care than Abbott seems capable. The inherently racist parties will seek to use any discussion and any seeming evidence of the negative impact of migrants as fuel to burn their fires of hate.
The astonishing thing about the fake left media is that they expect Australia to act locally to curb greenhouse gas emissions, but we are not also allowed to act locally to curb population growth by moderating immigration.
Yet, there are few better ways to protect Australia’s natural environment than limiting the number of people living on it.
