And lo, the cry went up from the mainstream media: When, O when, will the Copenhagen climate summit, which concluded on Friday, discuss the real solution to global warming â€“ fewer people? When will Jesse Jackson get around to talking about race? Writing in The National Post (Canadaâ€™s largest newspaper) on December 8, columnist Diane Francis waxed apocalyptic, â€œThe â€˜inconvenient truthâ€™ overhanging the UNâ€™s Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world.â€
Francis insisted, â€œThe worldâ€™s other species, vegetation, resources, oceans, arable land, water supplies and atmosphere are being destroyed and pushed out of existence (global-warming cultists are big on over-kill) as a result of humanityâ€™s soaring population rate.â€
The Washington Examiner described a training film shown at the conference (the world as seen by Al Gore and a paranoid polar bear on an ice floe), â€œThe planet will be ravaged and millions of people will die horrifying deaths as increasing temperatures in the Earthâ€™s atmosphere result in a monumentally devastating deluge of man-made floods, droughts, storms and rising seas.â€
Seven years of darkness, seas boiling over, dogs and cats living together! Who ya gonna call? Red China!
