A SELF-EVIDENT TRUTH
If any fraction of the observed global warming
can be attributed to the actions of humans,
then this, by itself, constitutes clear and compelling evidence
that the human population, living as we do,
has exceeded the Carrying Capacity of the Earth>
This situation is clearly not sustainable.
As a consequence it is AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH
that all proposals or efforts
at the local, national or global levels
to solve the problems of global warming
will have little lasting effect
if they fail to advocate that we address
the fundamental cause of global warming
This is not "rocket science." This is just a modern interpretation of Malthus, and it's not difficult to understand. It is difficult to put into practice because it is politically incorrect to try to do so. We don't have to wait for technologically elite experts to tell us this. It is self-evident.
We also know, as has been pointed out repeatedly, that if we don't act to reduce populations to sustainable levels in humane ways, nature will ultimately do it in her own inhumane ways.
