Global Warming Providing Solution to Overpopulation Woes
LONDON, England (CNN) — The first comprehensive report into the human cost of climate change warns the world is in the throes of a “silent crisis” that is killing 300,000 people each year.
Environmentalists and other-odd Lefties rejoice at the news!
Earth’s population is about 6.8 billion people today, or four times the population of a century ago. Even though birth rates are lower than during the 1960s and ’70s, the world is adding 75 million to 80 million people per year and is expected to peak at more than 9 billion by midcentury – far too many, say some population experts.
Whether this growth can be sustained and still provide a decent living standard for people is itself controversial. Some, including Ehrlich and Alan Weisman, the author of the best-selling book “The World Without Us,” argue that even today’s population is too large to maintain without ravaging the environment and creating an inhospitable planet.

We’ve gotta do something, people. Rev up those Hummers! Louder!
If we’re lucky, those crazy Norks will launch a nuclear strike. Maybe the Iranians, too. That would really help!
