Given that they all appear to be bald men with one exception, neither Angela Markel or Theresa May are there and the only guy with dark hair could be either Trudeau or Macron but not both!

They're discussing the wrong problem. Over population is the real issue, but business and politicians will never buy it because the capitalist model requires growth. Growth until when?

Yes over population is the problem!

Let's stop all those African and Asian countries breeding, so they don't destroy our planet. :ugh:

Edited for those with a sarcasm blocker:
Overpopulation is inevitable. Live or die with the consequences

Which came first, that or the remarkably similar scene in Eric the Viking?

Looks like from the bumps on their bodies that they have been out with the same girl in the last year and are trying to get at her in the middle of the pool

That would be a descendent of the Viking that did the pillaging I assume, leaving cousin Erik back in Scandihooligan land.


Very strange bumps on the crowns of some heads. Perhaps Michael Jackson will emerge from the melé.

Over population is the issue.
As was stated , the capitalist model needs growth upon growth.
Nobody here mentioned African or Asian breeding, you can obviously see that it's a big part of the problem!.
And if overpopulation is inevitable, the consequences are dire indeed.

Look at the natural world. Populations grow until they are unsustainable and then inevitably something happens to cut them back. It may be lack of food, a disease, or competing species. But they always die back.

Humans have developed means to combat all of those effects, which means we are increasing our population even faster than it would otherwise have done. But this can't go on forever, and sooner or later the population will crash.

We do of course have one very efficient method of population reduction which is unavailable to the natural world. War.

I agree, there will be a time when the population becomes unsustainable...

Blimey happy days !!

Climate change.
Before the asteroid/comet hit the earth, massive eruptions of volcanoes had caused earth's climate to be changed.

In 1984 Ethiopia could not sustain its 46 million population in a bad year. Geldof and co, with the best intentions, started the Band Aid programme. Between 1985 and 1995 1/2 million moved INTO Ethiopia to get the free handouts.

Continuing aid has now pushed the population up to 108 million; way beyond the country's resources.

Meanwhile,
Syria, Yemen and a few others are busily reducing their populations with generous assistance from outside. :}

What ever happened to the dinosaurs?
They turned into snowflakes and died from emotional stress.
Or, a meteor 65 million years ago.
Or, the more likely cause of their demise ... (http://ircamera.as.arizona.edu/NatSci102/NatSci/images/extdinoext.htm)

and our ability to sufficiently alter the climate to make the planet uninhabitable. Unfortunately that will mean the end of a lot more species as wel.
