If the "survivors" of this very likely scenario are as flexible in their thinking as you are here, then it wouldn't make a difference: you guys would still sully your own garden, regardless of any numbers. "Alarmism" itself towards any criticism of how we tackle energy problems is already ad hominem. Then the move to distract by conjuring up population growth problem. Yes they are related, but one doesn't negate the other: the world faces a lot of problems and bringing one up to play denial on another is what it is. Red Herring. All of them have to be tackled and framed more precisely. > and > http://www.amazon.com/Crimes-Against-Nature-Corporate-Plundering/dp/B008SLYJ8CI > really don't have time to do what you should be doing for yourself. > Ad hominem 2. Same as above. And no, I don't need to cite 100 sources to verify claims to you. My standards are more modest than that: Everything I've said here can be verified by gardening or taking care of a couple of plants, animals, human beings for extended periods of time. If you want the ultimate test on the subject, a personal empirical approach will bring my point across with more authority than anybody's paper or arguments: try growing or caring for your any lifeforms you deem appropriate, like I said plants, animals, children for extended periods of time, split whichever life you choose to care for, into two sets, and subject one set to random mutagens (e.g. research industrial waste, hydraulic fracturing and make a selection), carbon, and extreme temperature shifts, spikes and stresses, while keeping the other set safe from the same. Then after a few years, tell us which population thrived. I don't need Ivy League authority and citations for common sense. Sure, I read papers but I can make up my own mind, thank you very much.
