Three and a half Earths
In an alarmistic article in one of the biggest tabloids here it was stated with a citation from a "scientist" that 'If all people on the planet would live [use resources] as we do here in Sweden- then we would need three and a half earths to support us'.
Well, you can turn that reasoning around and say: "If all countrys on the earth had the same population as for example Indonesia- then we would need a hundred earths to support us."
The sollution for poverty, famine, and pollution is in demographics- not in "aid".
How can a farmer in for example- the "Palestinian areas" make an honest living, when we here in the west gives it out for free? At the same time analysts are warning for a 30% increase in food prices here in the EU because of shortage of food!
The palis is whinig now about Israel cutting off the electrical power to "their areas". Well guess what donkey- holes. You could have used all that energy and aidmoney to build yourself a powerplant or two instead of financing terrorist activities!
On a side note regarding powerplants. Hyperion Power Generation in USA is developing a mini nuclear reactor- the size of a bath tub- that could support 25000 households with electricity. How cool isn't that? And scientist here in Sweden are prohibited by law to even think about nuclear power! Another reported news is that engineers thinks that we can run our allready 35 year old nuclear power plants for another sixty years! Well that makes me feel a whole lot safer!
