To whom it may concern (everybody):
When, make that IF, we care to tackle AGW (anthropogenic global
warming) start by looking into that first letter, the anthropogenic
Reasons: 1) The current global warming fiasco is well documented
to have a human cause; 2) There has not been any recent major
asteroid- or comet impact to Earth, nor 3) A substantive recent
change in solar output, nor 4) Any major release of greenhouse
gases from within the Earth's globe or 5) Major greenhouse gas
releases from the oceans (though one should expect such some time
sooner or later).
The mere fact that GW is anthropogenic, making it AGW, implies
that: The more people there are roaming around the planet, the more
the Earth's climatic future will get disturbed by us humans. In
fact that is so self-evident that it's a no-brainer, which makes it
the more baffling the press isn't on this 24-7. The 'everyday-life'
equivalent is: 'If you want no crime remove the
In short: What needs to be addressed in any plan for
successfully combatting AGW, climate change if you will, is to
downsize people's family size, expectations for large families,
etc., etc, etc. Relief from the Anthropogenic onslaught of the
planet can only reasonably be expected from a downsized human
procreation. The goal should be that any person will at most be a
parent of one child. Summarizing that in a 'One and done' slogan
would clarify the point to anyone.
The clincher lies in World (and local) Economy, which thus far
has relied strongly on the 'there are no bounds' credo. Well, there
are numerous economists, and other intelligent people, so,
somewhere and somehow among them the economic and political problem
must be solvable.
Mind you, if we humans refuse to solve this one major problem,
that by the way we humans have caused and are exponentially
aggravating, 'we' are doomed, with the rest of the living natural
world. Most likely I myself will escape the main environmental
disasters, as they will likely occur after I've been moved into an
urn, yet I see (¡) no reason (!) not to draw the
straightforward, simple and basic conclusion I have laid out here.
Bring the folks with (¡) real (!) insights together and have
them figure this out . . sooner rather than later.
