While the British are content to accept the picture of a kindly and caring octogenarian presented by the UK meida, it seems it takes other countries to look more closely at David Attenborough’s seeming Malthusian intentions. Harsh words? This is a deadly topic.
…Sir David Attenborough, stated in the Radio Times on 21st January that “We are a plague for the earth.” If this was aimed at the oligarchs of the British Empire one could only agree. But for him ‘we’ stands for ‘we people’. Sir David says, ‘We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times.
As many newspapers reported, Sir David concentrated his argument on Ethiopia. We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia; that’s what’s happening. Too many people there. They can’t support themselves — and it’s not an inhuman thing to say.
Sir David, Commander of the British Empire, a leading member of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), an organisation created in 1991 which is in favour of the elimination of 3 – 5 billion people by 2050. OPT works closely alongside Prince Philip’s World Wildlife Fund (WWF), and ‘partners’ the Global Footprint Network. The organisations work together to produce a biennial report entitled Living Planet.
Attenborough, who describes himself as a naturalist, is a close friend of Prince Philip..On 10.3. 2011 he received the annual prize of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts (RSA) from Prince Philip, the RSA president. At the presentation he stated: We now realise that the disasters that continue increasingly to afflict the natural world have one element that connects them all – the unprecedented increase in the number of human beings on the planet,’ he added.
Perhaps you attributed the known lack of economic growth to the unbridled financial speculation in the past decades and the brutal, worldwide pursuit of chaos and conflict politics by the British
Empire. But no, states Sir David, it is population growth that is responsible for this. For those who still retain their sense for economic reality this theory is as wrong as it was in Thomas Malthus’ time.
No doubt Attenborough would support the revealing statement reported by the Deutsche Press Agentur by Prince Philip in August 1988: In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation.
As the topic of supposed overpopulation is shared by many leading representatives of international organisations and their green followers, whose influence has resulted in important industrial and infrastructural projects being torpedoed, developing countries find themselves in a desolate situation. If man would concentrate on the development and advancement of countries, instead of constantly starting new wars, it would easily be possible to afford ten billion people a decent standard of living using the technical know-how available today.
