The PROBLEM is GREED by the RICH, NOT the SIZE of the human population.


Promotion of population reduction of the poorest among us is based on a FALSE EQUIVALENCE between two factors.

The carbon footprint of the the top 17% VASTLY outweighs the carbon footprint of the lower 83%. It is disingenuous, as well as mean spirited, to claim the two sources of emissions are "equally" damaging.

What those who push this false equivalence REALLY want to do is depopulate the earth of of the lower 83% so that they can continue their unsustainable hydrocarbon burning reliant standard of living. Not only is that murderous plan  empathy deficit disordered, but doomed to failure!

The biosphere math facts clearly state that less than 17% of the human population, MOSTLY concentrated in wealthy countries, is DOING over 80% of the damage by consuming over 80% of the resources. Only about half (or less) of the MILITARY budgets alone of the wealthy countries could pay for bio-remediating the most impacted areas, stop the exploitation and care for and educate the high population growth poor there so they become good stewards instead of biosphere destroyers.


The fossil fuel industry 🐉🦕🦖, and almost half of the world’s 100 largest companies 😈 👹 💵 🎩, want that 'Fragmentation of Agency' pie chart to look like is as follows:


How convenient!

We DO NOT NEED TO BURN HYDROCARBONS for energy to have a civilization that guarantees a viable biosphere for future generations. Amory Lovins has made that crystal clear since a peer reviewed study he published over a decade ago titled, "Reinventing Fire". Google it. We need hydrocarbons like a dog needs ticks, PERIOD.
