Ah yes, but we are so much smarter now.  Rather than burning tons of coal we are instead producing tons of radioactive waste some of which will remain radioactive for 300 000 years.  Of course that doesn't matter either what with Fukushima still gradually poisoning the ocean 7 years after the original debacle.   Because there are people greedy enough (GE) and stupid enough (GE) to build nuclear reactors on geological faults our fate is pretty much sealed.  Somebody please correct me and say it ain't so.

You are 5,000 percent correct !

So pass stiff laws that only Wind, Solar and Geo thermal are legal, bankrupt and jail any abuse of the law. Worked fine 250 years ago  Problem solved.

If there were easy options we would take them but unfortunately any option we take makes life harder and or shorter for another human. Quit generating electricity and we have a smorgasbord of problems that follow. Deaths from no a/c, no way to refrigerate food or medicine, industry jobs can only be done in daylight hours. Quit using pesticides and fertilizer and we go back to 60-80 bushel an acre corn instead of over 300 bushels an acre (that goes for all crops, different yield but just as drastic  drops) so half the world or more will starve out. I see the concern but I don’t see any fair to decide who should go without which comfort. We all want food, electricity l, medicine etc and I don’t see any viable way to make real change without drastically dropping the world population by taking any of these things away.

We could get rid of the Middle East.

The Generators and reactor units were designed by G. E.. Fuji Heavy Industries, Tokyo Electric Light, International Nuclear Energy Development of Japan Co., Ltd, Innovation Network Corporation of Japan and the MAI Consortium LTD built and maintained it. Kind of tough to blame G.E. for it IMO.

Long Pig!!!! Lol

Maybe I should pre-sell my carcass to them for $500 since I’m absolutely unprepared for an apocalypse. May as well enjoy the cash now? 

Few probably know what it is.

the human race is a invasive species that has taken over the planet and over populated. at some point the earth will balance itself out by wiping the majority if not all of us off the planet. the simple fact is no mater what you do the earth cannot support the population of the human race. 

True. The bottom line is too many people that want too much stuff.

And regulating the population isn't going to happen. No country wants to be weak by having too few people.

Population control won't/shouldn't happen. It goes against human nature.

Does China’s one child policy ring a bell?

Feminist’s and socialist’s in US managed to kill off >45 million American Citizens with abortion since the 70’s. US is a step ahead of many countries in murdering its citizenship. Disproportionate number black, so they also managed to pulled off an ethnic cleansing, legally.
