Ecomentalist wants to wipe out half the population of Britain

In case you missed it, Jonathan Porritt, the rent-seeking ecomentalist extraordinaire, who has become a rich man by feasting upon the trough of taxpayer largesse, recently made the extraordinary assertion that Britain's population must be halved.

How does he presume that this will happen? Will the socialist/fascist overlordship of Britain be benign, and merely adopt the Chinese solution of one-child families lorded over by a horrendous bureaucracy? Or will we go for a more dramatic final solution?

A British Gulag might do it, I suppose, over 30 years, killing off a million a year in the death slave camps. Or perhaps we should just go for some gas chambers and some ovens to get it over with quickly?

Whichever way you look at it, however, I think it goes to show that if you prick the skin of any ecomentalist, what you will find beneath is a human hater who wants people to die so that slugs can dominate the Earth.

Well, I think you will find no finer example of a human slug than Jonathan Porritt. My only request is that to help reduce the population by one tax eater, Mr Porritt puts himself on a boat with a one-way ticket to Sweden, or some other socialist nirvana, so that we can be free of both his opinions and his depradations on our wallets.

For all you need need to know about environmentalism and the environmentalists, all you need to do is read the following splendid articles by George Reisman, the former sparring partner of Uncle Murray Rothbard, and fellow key attendee of the Mises forum in New York:

=> Environmentalism Refuted
=> Global Warming: Environmentalism’s Threat of Hell on Earth
=> Environmentalism Is Recycled Communism and Nazism

The last of those is particularly good.

The nerve of him, just how does he suggest we do this ? Maybe he should have said something about overwhelming immigration to Britain this is the reason it is so over populated. political MIZZ

Environmentalists think Britain is overpopulated if there is just 1 person here.

Sorry. They'll probably allow a few stone age camps, but you'll only be allowed to live even then, if you are a fully signed-up ecomentalist.

The 30 million was just a gambit.

What was the pre-industrial population of Britain? About 2 million, constant for hundreds of years, give or take the odd Black Death?

I suppose they'd accept that. But the stone age, of perhaps 100,000 is probably more to their liking.
