David Attenborough & The Population Matters Organisation

Overpopulation alarmists like Attenborough have it the wrong way around. Abundance of realiable carbon based energy, creating wealth, in fact reduces population.
Negative birth rates in wealthy Scandinavian countries vs overpopulation in energy starved African / Asian nations is evidence of this fact.

Anthropogenic “climate change”, and the control of carbon dioxide (energy) has deep roots in a radical, yet gravely misguided campaign to reduce the world’s population.

A misanthropic agenda engineered by the environmental movement in the mid 1970’s, who realised that doing something about “global warming” would play to quite a number of its social agendas

Along with consumption growth and industrial practices, population growth increases damage to the environment and depletes natural resources. We believe that human numbers should be reduced voluntarily to a sustainable level that enables an acceptable quality of life for all.

A stable and ethical transition to a sustainable population level would take several generations. Given that human activity already exceeds Earth’s capacity to support it at an acceptable consumption level for all, mainly due to overconsumption in the developed world, we should begin without delay.
