A Thomist learns to party on.
The world's population is actually on a pace to peak in 2045 and then start declining. The science is settled, to coin a phrase. The overpopulation scaremongering is just 1970s hippie leftover garbage.
They might have dogs.....
Yeah, it could have been dogs. Or he could have been hauling produce for the local collective. Who knows? My bet is people.
Maybe he's hauling people to the Soylent Green factory!The movie takes place in 2022, after all, so if Soylent Co. is going to be the world's primary food source in just 10 years, they'd better already be in business now!Incidentally, I just saw pointed out recently that the story that Soylent Green was based on was set even earlier, in 1999, and had the world "horrendously overpopulated" with 7 billion people. Which is the number we are now projected to hit sometime this month. So Harry Harrison's overpopulation projection from the 70s was too fast by 13 years, and he overestimated the bad effects pretty substantially.
What a movie got the future wrong! You mean we didn't all turn into vampires from a biological weapon released in the 70's! ;)Damn dirty apes!
The new environmental book, Green Illusions, shows the importance of solving overpopulation as a first step in combating our broader energy challenges. The author argues that solving overpopulation is a better project to pursue than new energy technologies, which have many negative side effects and limitations.
