So I'm sure this isn't a popular point of view but global warming is a good thing because there are way too many people on earth to be sustainable and mother nature is going to fix that. Why try and stop her?

I'm not just a troll,
seriously humans are not going to stop breeding till there is mass starvation and even then they won't stop.

There is no real problem with over population. This is an evil myth.

The degree to which humans can grow food increases with the level of wealth of the population concearned. That is we can grow enough food in the UK for the population it has. That is a staggering amount of food, enough for the 60+ million people here given that pre-industrial population of less than 10% of that often starved.

More humans on the planet means more humans to trade with. The richer they all are the better for you as they will want to buy your stuff, whatever it is you do to make your living. And the cheaper the stuff you want will be because of the drop in price when things are mass produced. Be they goods such as coffee cups or services such as telecommunications.

Absolutely correct. Humans are assets too, not just liabilities.

Then we can get rid of those who are traitors to humanity.

Criteria sould include holding beliefs which have no real justification about killing vast numbers of humans.

You fit the bill.

This drivel you spout is evil and 100% wrong.

There have been far less mass disease outbreaks in the last 50 years than ever. those which have happened, Ebola, SARS, AIDs etc have been contained and dealt with extremely effectively. They have not rocked the boat at all for the rich world.

This is down to us being in a position of having so much wealth we can afford to have specialialist disease control infrastructure, planning, research, responce and all the rest. This is a product of number of humans x wealth of those humans. More humans more capacity to do all the good stuff.

**** off with your evil crap.

In a reasonable world where people were more responsible for their speach you should at least be legally cautioned.

If you have the wealth capacity to deal with those levels of human population then yes.

Very soon, next few decades, humanity will being the process of capturing asteroids. Initially these will be used for extractive industry. The best place to mine gold and all other heavy elements and such stuff as carbon as well.

Quickly they will also become the best place for heavy industry.

Then there will be the process of building heavens. A 3km long asteroid, medium sized, can be remade into a city as big as all the urban land in the world. Multi level habitation of orbital habitats will allow a massive increase in effectove living space.

This will continue. Billions of people can live in extreme luxury and security in such artifical heavens.

The earth can become a parkland we cherrish. We will still need it but as a resevoir of biodiversity and nature. Also our spiritual home.

Having smaller families is not what you advocate by saying that humanity is over populated.

That you have retreated very quickly is good. it means that the idea that humanity should reduce it's population has gone away in your head the moment it was challenged assertively.

Well done. You can think for yourself. That is unusual.

Then again when socities get rich they don't have big families.

We have done almost all the extincitions of large animals already. This we did before we even began agriculture.

Some more are vulnerable in Africa. We, at least the rich world is addressing this issue. Hopefully we will be able to save the vast majority.

Not clearing land for sugar for biofuel would help a lot.

Island species are dying out very quickly as the interconnedness of the world means nowhere is safe from invaisive species.

How do you think a slightly warmer world will kill anybody?

We are producing more grain PER ACRE AND IT INCREASES EVERY YEAR.
stronger hurricanes and typhoons,

This keeps getting repeated as scripture, but it just isn't true. Not even the beloved IPCC supports this claim.
famines,

As I pointed out, grain productions is booming. Poor governing is the cause of starvation in most cases. We have starving people across the world and our grain bins are overflowing in the US. Can't find uses for all the grain.
do not all these kill people?.

Yup, but has nothing to do with temperatures.

Choose one of those and we can look at it to see if there is actually a problem.

You will find, if you are open minded and skeptical, of me as well, that all such problems vanish to nothing much at all when examined.

What warmer world? Heatwaves, droughts, and floods are normal weather. Crops fail sometimes. That's as old as farming. Hurricanes are not stronger or more frequent (see National Hurricane Center historic data). A typhoon is just another name for a hurricane. Famines are mostly caused by war and politics.

Your basic argument is that the Earth is warming. We don't know. It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth.

Your basic argument is based on CO2 and other 'holy' gasses. No gas or vapor is capable of warming the Earth using surface infrared. That just violates the laws of thermodynamics and the Stefan-Boltzmann law.

Then explain why past epidemics no longer exist? Large populations usually allow large businesses to grow which causes increased wages and not lower. Increased hygiene rather than decrease as your comment about pollution suggests. Indeed it does cause increased stress but man is highly adaptable and easily handles it. Note that we don't have anything other than bushfire wars instead of world wars.

We already HAVE 7 billion people on this planet and it is virtually impossible to stop that sort of growth until you make people rich and healthy enough to have food and little to no need of medical care. But the world has reached that spot. over 85% of the world's 1 year old babies have been vaccinated for the most common diseases. Hunger in the last century has dropped from one in three to one in nine.

Do you realize that the largest and fastest growing diseases in the world today are from NOT EXERCISING??

The world is becoming heaven without the angels and harps. And don't let social media and the leftists tell you any different. The statistics are clear and even with the media telling you that you should be frightened and angry all the time were you the age you are 150 years ago you would have an expected lifespan of 3 years less.

Time to make more people in the world aware of this.

Then maybe it is time for deluded (and clearly now indoctrinated by peeps like WWF - or how much are they paying him?!?) Mr Attenborough to step aside and stop preaching climate fear making 'stuff' he surely doesn't have a clue about. Now he shows us images of those poor, poor Walrus's plunging to their deaths - or did they die - because of the effects of this global warming religion nonsense that it only global weather or climate, which has been changing most drastically for 4.2 billion years. So what were the lovely walrus's doing back when it was hot (very hot) enough for the Vikings to colonise Iceland then Greenland?!? Bungee Jumping maybe?!? And 4000 years before that it was even hotter - really hotter. And that's just the last 5000 years. So do us sane peeps a favour, mate.
Get off your high horse, Attenborough... You are a global pest now, and clearly being paid so much by global warming nut jobs, some of who are making big, big bucks from your lunatic sermons.
Get him off the box and stuff him and put him in the natural history museum where the moths can get at him...

We never been able to control the weather, and doubtful we ever will. Although, I sometime suspect there might be some government secrets on the topic. The church defines climate, as weather, over a period of time. The time period seems to be a duration, that conveniently implies some sort of crisis, that needs a lot of cash and resources to fight, or we all are going to die. But the irony is that most of us will die natural, or with a little help long before the prophecy. If we can't control weather, we can't control time, then we can't control climate either, as defined. Doesn't get much simpler than that.

The vast majority of the vegetation on this planet do best in a warm climate, and much higher levels of CO2. This is genetic, plants that were most productive, thrived and reproduced. Plants are the food for everything else living on this planet. When plants are healthy and happy, so is everything else. It's the lack of food, and poor diet, that weaks most, and leaves them vulnerable to disease, and slows healing. With more food available, people will naturally be healthier, need fewer pills, Obamacare. With food easier and cheaper to acquire, most people will have the time and resources, to construct better shelter from the elements, and overcrowding, another thing that promotes better health.

It should be obvious to all, that 'Climate Change' is a scam, we have no influence on time or weather, intentional, or otherwise. There is no cause, no cure, just an operatunity. Some people see an operatunity to tax, regulate, control, basically steal your money, your livelihood, freedoms, and liberties. We have the operatunity to prepare and adapt for a changing world. I doubt seriously that a warmer climate will bring more intense, violent storms. Think the weather will do the same as it always has in the past. There will be extremes on occasion, but for the most part it's going to get much nicer. It's been a strange winter, blizzards in mid-April up north, while here in Florida, daytime highs are 80-90 F. Barely dropped below 40 F, where the folks not so far north were in the 'teens.

What could possibly go wrong... Those asteroids have been peacefully (for the most part) flying through space, since the beginning of our solar system, more or less. Just a guess, but they've been there a long time, without incident. Why poke the sleeping alligator with a stick, to see how fast it can chase you?

Maybe NASA figures if Global Warming gets out of hand, they have a backup plan. An asteroid impact cooled down the planet, least once...

I did some checking. It's closest position to the Sun is about the same as the Earth's furthest distance from the Sun. You might be right. If it's orbit becomes more elliptical then who knows what? Wish they gave more information about it's orbit relative to the Earth's.

The scary part is that the aren't particularly concerned about which asteroid they move either. They are going to hit something, even if they miss the chance at the one they chose. Then again, even if everything goes as planned, and they don't alter the obit sufficiently to impact Earth (anytime soon), there are a whole lot of other asteroids, planets and moons. What happens if that asteroid smacks into another asteroid, throwing it of it's usual path?

Maybe I played to many games of Asteroids as a kid, but it seems kind of foolish to play with space rocks like this. It'll cost way more than a quarter, if they mess something up. Not to mention the many millions of dollars going into the project...

We call them 'meteors' when that happens.

A meteor will enter Earth's atmosphere about once every few minutes. Most are about the size of a grain of sand. They still leave behind an ionized trail when they burn up though. We can even bounce radio signals off that trail before it dissipates in a second or so.
