ARE THERE REALLY TOO MANY OF US?
JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, thinks so. In fact, he's warned that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.
Porritt said: “Population growth, plus economic growth, is putting the world under terrible pressure. Each person in Britain has far more impact on the environment than those in developing countries so cutting our population is one way to reduce that impact.”
The current UK population is 60,000,000 with 70,000,000 predicted by 2030. Porritt advises that a more sustainable figure would be 30,000,000 but for that to happen FORTY MILLION UK CITIZENS MUST DIE by 2030. How? I mean, by what murderous mechanism will that many people be eradicated? It's certainly not openly discussed in the mainstream media.
