John Ward – The Saturday Essay : Why Population Growth, Water, Wars, And Neoliberal Claptrap Are Inseparable – 8 February 2014

JohnW( Lucas: The classic stupid lie is told on there is too much of us to be fed and sustained… Even the UN in her reports explains that it is not about too much people on the planet but resources and food not equally accessed and dispersed on the planet…. Stop telling lies….!)

Almost every problem the world faces today starts at one base point: there are far too many of us

I don’t want to get into atmospheric, carbon dioxide output or food viability wonkishness of global population growth in this piece. There are only two areas where I proffer contention, and I’d appreciate it if threaders stuck to those – without straying into the usual mud-slinging, trashing, yelling jamboree. Continue reading

TheIndependent – Winter Olympics 2014: Sochi Protesters Arrested Over Banner Citing Olympic Charter’s Words Against Discrimination – 8 February 2014

The Independent
