    In my humble opinion...........BS

    This is necessary only if we plan to return to a non-scientific agrarian society. We can ride horses and clean the poop from the stables by hand
    and fertilize the garden with the poop. Sounds good on paper, but does not fit the human spirit. How do you keep them down on the farm after they have seen TV??

    Many experts believe that, since Europeans and Americans have such a lopsided impact on the environment, the world would benefit more from reducing their populations than by making cuts in developing countries.
    Is this a call to sterilize all Americans and Europeans??????

    Well, if they pay for me to live somewhere with better weather and a stable banking system, then I'll leave
