    If you need more evidence that the Greens intend to destroy our standard of living, you need not look further than the Oct. 18 issue of New Scientist magazine — the cover of which reads, “The Folly of Growth: How to stop the economy killing the planet.”

    The issue features eight articles that New Scientist editors believe justify their editorial entitled, “Why economic growth is killing the planet and what we can do about it.” Presented below the editorial is an ominously drawn graph purporting to show how global temperatures, population, carbon dioxide concentrations, GDP and loss of tropical rainforest and woodland have dramatically spiked upward since 1750, and how species extinctions, water use, motor vehicle use, paper consumption, fisheries exploitation, ozone depletion and foreign investment spiked during the 20th century.

    The editorial concludes that “the science tells us that if we are serious about saving the Earth,” economic growth must be limited.

    Well, there is enough land in Texas to provide a city building lot for every family in the world but modern families want a 3000 sq ft house with a 1000 sq ft garage so each family member can drive 60 miles every day to work over a "freeway" paid for by someone else. After WW2 a family was happy to have a 1000 sq ft house on a 5000 sq ft lot.

    There is room for Every person on the this earth but not if all 5 billions live like rich Americans. The alternative, of course, is birth control or turning the whole world into a Calcutta + poor farmers.
