    This is inciting mass murder, it is unacceptable.

    I'm not advocating or inciting anything  not really i'm just having a discussion ,  but it is the only way to save any of us, is to get rid of most of us, or am i wrong?

    Who gets to decide who hits the floor? Naturally every person advocating the idea thinks "I'm special and so I should be exempt from what everyone else has to suffer".
    Perhaps you fantasize about being a political leader who would solve the world's problems through measures like this. But the catch-22 is that you will not be a political leader some day, and so you should exercise the empathy to imagine it being done to yourself as well and shape your ideas accordingly.
    How much could you personally bear? To be euthanized in the prime of your life? I highly doubt it. To be euthanized as an old man? More bearable perhaps but even then people are going to be terrified of death no matter their age.

    I would rather have recreational abortion socially acceptable over a tyrannical 1 child policy.

    The problem isn't the number of humans. The problem is the technology we have chosen to use (fossil fuels, meat heavy diets etc). If we cleaned up our act then the population we have now would not be an issue. But there are alot of companies that profit from the way things are now, so trying make the changes needed is being fought every step of the way.

    He is free to voice his opinions, however controversial, so long as he is neither violating the law or the COC. As far as I can ascertain, this thread violates neither. Obviously, his views are morally despicable--killing children is always wrong--but that I find them despicable does not mean that they ought to/can be censored.

    The problem actually isn't the number of humans it's the density of humans in places like India, Africa, and China. Those are the major contributors to global pollution.

    To reduce climate change, lets replace coal with hydro power.

    We don't have infinite plutonium, but we do have a reusable supply of hydro power.

    We can't store the waste in any areas where the owners consent.  We can store it in Yucca mountain, but the natives who own it don't consent to that.

    How do you know how much fissionable material is in the Earth? We were supposed to run out of oil 50 years ago if you listened to the experts.

    Nuclear isn't even being given a chance.

    Nuclear fission is better than coal, and it can be used.  I think hydro power is better though.

    Nuclear fission is running about 20% of the US's electricity, so it's definitely out there.
