A large group of environmentalists subscribe to the theory that the cause of all the worlds problems is people and the only way to solve the problems is to eliminate people. Looks like they are well on their way to killing off most of Africa. People in the West are unwitting accomplices to this through our environmental policies, support of abortion and Europe's move to euthanasia.
Update: Looks like someone just wrote the book on what I'm talking about
Update 2: From the Corner:
So how does that add up? Check out this piece in Foreign Affairs, from last year's May-June issue:In a study of global food security we conducted in 2003, we projected that given the rates of economic and population growth, the number of hungry people throughout the world would decline by 23 percent, to about 625 million, by 2025, so long as
agricultural productivity improved enough to keep the relative price of food constant.
But if, all other things being equal, the prices of staple foods increased because of demand for biofuels, as the [International Food Policy Research Institute] projections suggest they will, the number of food insecure people in the world would rise by over 16 million for every percentage increase in the real prices of staple foods. That means that 1.2 billion people could be chronically hungry by 2025 — 600 million more than previously predicted.
The world's poorest people already spend 50 to 80 percent of their total household income on food. For the many among them who are landless laborers or rural subsistence farmers, large increases in the prices of staple foods will mean malnutrition and hunger. Some of them will tumble over the edge of subsistence into outright starvation, and many more will die from a multitude of hunger-related diseases.
More genocide here Guess the one Green focus is population reduction.
