Stuff Black People Don't Like is primarily concerned with educating the world on American Black people.
However, we do notice world trends and see an incredibly high-ranking SBPDL that few wish to discuss frankly - Global Warming and Population Control.
Now, SBPDL isn't "going green" on you just yet. We'll stay Black for the time being, but we would like to point out an interesting article:
"Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC) .The global warming debate rarely discusses the impact that the proliferation of human beings has upon the environment and finite resources that help sustain these populations (mainly disingenous white liberals who send boatloads of money, medicine and resources to ensure the continued aggregation of third world populations). Why is it that only white people seem to care about the environment anyway? Is "going green" primarily a white activity?
"Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture," said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.
Many studies link population growth with emissions and the effect of climate change.
"Calculations of the contribution of population growth to emissions growth globally produce a consistent finding that most of past population growth has been responsible for between 40 per cent and 60 percent of emissions growth," so stated by the 2009 State of World Population, released earlier by the UN Population Fund.
Although China's family planning policy has received criticism over the past three decades, Zhao said that China's population program has made a great historic contribution to the well-being of society.
As a result of the family planning policy, China has seen 400 million fewer births, which has resulted in 18 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions a year, Zhao said.
The UN report projected that if the global population would remain 8 billion by the year 2050 instead of a little more than 9 billion according to medium-growth scenario, "it might result in 1 billion to 2 billion fewer tons of carbon emissions"."
These DWLs must be blamed for the population growth in one sector of the world, Africa:
"Sub-Saharan Africa is headed for a "population emergency" according to a new French analysis of demographic trends.
The population of the continent south of the Sahara, decimated by the slave trade and colonization, stood at 100 million in 1900, according to the study by Centre Population et Developpement. It had grown more than seven-fold to 770 million by 2005. By 2050, it will grow by as much as 2.6 times above that level, to 2 billion. The population of the entire world today is 6.6 billion.
In 1960, one African city had 1 million residents. Now, 40 do, and the rural exodus is continuing at such a pace that already strained cities are struggling to provide services, like health care, and infrastructure, like sewage treatment, enough to support the population growth."
The high fecundity rates of Black people in Africa is stressing out the finite resources on that continent, and endangering not only the inhabitants of that continent, but the citizens of every nation in the world:
"The Swiss-based conservation group WWF reported Monday that growing populations in many African nations are quickly dwindling the continent's natural resources.
The warning was part of the group’s flagship report on Africa’s ecological footprint, which provides an estimate of a region’s land and sea surface required each year to meet the consumption demands of its population.
"A growing number of African countries are depleting their natural resources -- or will shortly be doing so -- faster than they can be replaced," said Chief Emeka Anyaoku, WWF’s President, as he presented the findings to a conference in Johannesburg."
Stuff Black People Don't Like is hard at work on a number of new posts (including two on college football, one on the medical profession, the reality of Denver, going green, reality of global warming, defending the environment and the Chinese takeover of Africa - not to mention the 12 days of Christmas), but we wanted to take the time to get this issue out in the open for discussion (send any links you have on these ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org)
It is important though for all people concerned with the environment to understand that population control is not a fantastical notion discussed by Ted Turner, but a reality that will be upon us whether we like it or not in the next 10-20 years.
And Stuff Black People Don't Like will once again be on the cutting edge of pointing out these uncomfortable truths.
The former Green Czar of the Obama Administration, Van Jones, found $60 billion dollars of stimulus money appropriated to his formidable, green-friendly hands. Sadly, nothing came of this, because noone really understands what a "green" job is or how to stimulate "green" jobs.
The "green" jobs of the future might include being employed by the government to care for the refugee crisis out of Africa, as millions of Black people are displaced to the United States in a humanitarian emergency that will make the Darfur crisis pale in comparison.
So, for all those white people out there seeing The Blind Side, you just might get your chance soon to have your very own Michael Oher, direct from Africa! The reality of adoption being what it is, a humanitarian crisis in Africa will only lead to mass adoptions of Black people into caring homes in America.
As for us, we'll keep blessing the rain down in Africa.
