Endangered Species Condoms Win Ad Award; Take Action Against Overpopulation

The Center for Biological Diversity has a very successful campaign linking human population growth to other species loss. They sell "Endangered species condoms." Their creative approach has now been independently recognised by, of all things, the American Advertising Federation. Good on them!

Overpopulation poses two global problems

The overpopulation poses at least two problems:

(1) The excessive growth of humanity is destroying natural systems across the globe. Five selfish and delinquent countries contribute to nearly 50% of the world's population (notably China, India, USA, Indonesia and Brazil).

(2) The mass migration of humans due to whatever cause (civil war, famine, climate change, natural disasters, sea rise, poverty, recession, the lure of a better life, whatever).

Climate Change is 1% of the problem, but 99% of the excuse

Blaming human overpopulation for the earth's ills does not come easy to humans, especially to those self-righteously but religiously conditioned to traditional procreation; far more palatable to blame some external force for human damage - easier to blame 'climate change'.

Coalition, Greens & DLP vote Tim Holding's North South Pipeline enabling regulations down!

Victoria's Water Minister, Tim Holding, is angry that his government's regulations to allow country water to be funnelled to Melbourne via a north-south pipeline were rejected in the Victorian parliament on Wednesday. The opposition moved a disallowance motion to block the order, which regulates the delivery of pipeline water. The Greens and DLP supported the motion, giving the coalition the numbers it needed for it to pass.
