Red Meat To The Masses

This video is by a food guy. You know the type - change what you eat because it is killing you. If it's not one thing it's another. About 45 seconds in he puts up an atomic bomb blast (very pretty) and then he goes on to discuss the existential threat of our time. Wait for it. Can't guess? Climate Change.

Yep. Global Warming is real and dangerous and all scientists agree. Sounds serious. Why the glaciers in the Himalayas could be gone by 2030. Or was that 2035? Or 2350? Well no matter. It is serious. And Catastrophic. But we have these planners who have a plan and they can fix it all. They just need to control everything. What you eat. Travel plans. How much energy you can use. The number of children you are allowed. And one or two other minor points. Certainly we can all agree this must be done.

Am I overreacting? Maybe. But I don't think so. Here is what some person had to say in the comments at YouTube.

While I agree with this, fixing it is basically like getting a T-rex to eat veggies and telling people in general money isnt important. Simply put, if you want to correct this huge problem, you have to attack the cause. If humans were not allowed to procreate as much as we do, every and almost all problems will be fixed. Hell, just even making a law that you have to pass an IQ test before you conceive will cut down population and increase non-ignorance for a race.
The commenter is not an alimentationist he is an eliminationist.

It's amazing how leftists define themselves by what they won't allow in others. Then they have the gall to take umbrage when their philosophy is accurately characterized as tyranny.

People who don't contribute to society obsess over what it takes to sustain them.

Damn, this post made me think of something I tend to forget. What an odd coincidence that it would be just before my post about "better food" technology.

I totally forgot about the environmental angle.

I guess it just illustrates the selfishness of my priorities (and I'm sure that I should be ashamed), but thanks!

Voluntary human extinction starts with the self! Show your dedication to the cause and kill yourself! Be sure to leave a note so we know why.

There are two kinds of people in the world.

One kind wants to tell you what to do and is willing to use force to make it stick [and possibly argue that it's for your own good].

The other may or may not tell you what to do, but they're willing to let you go to Hell in your own handbasket.

I much prefer the company of the second kind.
