Didn’t want o write this last week, but my solution to most of our global and regional problems are to “limit” growth. If the earth had say one tenth its current population and it was intelligently located, I do not believe there would be much problem with pollution of any kind incl GW.
I feel there would be les competition and tension over the resources we do have. Our oil supply would last a lot longer, and poor subsistence areas would have a lot more land per person to hunt and farm.

Actually I am pretty sure of this, but I’m not going to run for office with it. We’ll just have to wait until we are forced to make a decision like this. Luckily for us I don’t think it will be in our life time.

This week's TIME magazine is a double issue on the global warming problem and it is very well put together with in-depth articles.

What do you propose be done with the other 5.85 billion people? Which group would you place yourself in, the chosen or the culled?

Furthermore, are you planning to put said "solution" into practice from the core of a hollowed out volcano at a secret location in the middle of the pacific ocean?

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA

That's just a silly response. It wouldn't have to be done all at once to work.

i was thinking about getting a python. python have been known to swallow a whole cow. feeding humans to a hungry python could help keep the population down.

Seriously, please tell us how your solution will go about achieving a total worldwide population of just 650,000 people.

Pythons don't eat very often though. You'd need a lot of them.

Maybe a big mincing machine, so you could grind up the 5.5 billion and feed them to all manner of hungry omnivores.

Soylent Green anybody?
