Environment - Did I Just Say Drought, Part 2

Well, I could've told them that! U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon is opining as how the conflict in the Sudan is due to competition for scarce resources brought on by global warming. No shit, Sherlock.
"It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought," Ban said in the Washington daily.

When Darfur's land was rich, he said, black farmers welcomed Arab herders and shared their water, he said.

With the drought, however, farmers fenced in their land to prevent overgrazing.

"For the first time in memory, there was no longer enough food and water for all. Fighting broke out," he said.

A UN peacekeeping force may stop the fighting, he said, and more than two million people may return to rebuilt homes in safe villages.

"But what to do about the essential dilemma: the fact that there's no longer enough good land to go around?"
Tell you what, people! Stop reproducing!!!

If there isn't enough for all the people, there needs to be fewer people. Time to dump the abstinence programs and aggressively implement a ZPG solution. Otherwise we're fucking doomed.

I don't understand why this simple fact is so difficult to grasp.


Stumble It!
