Attenborough: 'Humans are a plaque on Earth'

Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough.

The television presenter said that humans are threatening their own existence and that of other species by using up the world’s resources.

He said the only way to save the planet from famine and species extinction is to limit human population growth.

“We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times.

What does this plaque say?

Is it bronze? LOL

But on a serious note, this is disgusting propaganda in the service of the "environmental" (aka sustainability aka international socialism) agenda. These chickens littles of overpopulation hysteria have been making the same idiotic claims for several centuries, if not longer, and always for the same purpose: to justify an expansion of State power.

it's a socialist anti-human agenda that ties directly into the global warming nonsense. Capitalists and property rights advocates know that this is not a problem is a properly working economy. It's not a conspiracy, they really do want you dead.
