    You mean the correlation between population density and pollution for example?

    Indeed... anyone serious about reducing greenhouse gas emissions should really be pushing for reduction in the population... not the ever increasing numbers we have.

    The population growth rate shows that fertility has massively reduced due to education and development


    So short of killing people we are doing everything we can. Eventually as the fertility declines kick in, population will stabilise and then hopefully reduce

    How are you suggesting we "reduce" population in the short term?

    Do you like love island?
    Would you like to take part in a new reality TV show?
    We're looking for contestants, who have never seen the film Logan's Run, to start in this exciting new show

    Good country, Denmark. Climate's no worse than here. And same as me, they like beer, jazz and modern art, so we get along fine.

    I did think of mentioning my, um, comparative longevity. I can even remember when this site was actually fun and interesting and people got along. Or were at least civil. Then some people decided to fix that.

    I think it's a great place, but not one people usually choose hence my surprise.

    We 've been all over Scandinavia but like Denmark best. Don't tell my Finnish relatives. We've been to DK lots of times and enjoy everything about it. Should be there now, in fact, but my shaky health precludes. Maybe in the autumn...

    Mainly by instituting endless premoderation (1 and a half years and counting) for posters with immoderate views.

    You were sentenced to premoderation for posting "oh dear me" 200 times? That's a bit harsh.

    "Endless" eh? That's disheartening.
    I've often wondered how long my punishment would last. It's been about a year now and I was hopeful of amnesty or early release or somesuch.
    Oh well. Back to the chain gang...

    It is bizarre to me that they continue to premoderate you when other posters post far worse and they seem content to let it slide...

    Would they be non conformist posters?;)

    I think we should get the whole world population and make them stand on the Isle of Wight. Apparently they would fit!

    I recall many years back in Disney, Florida. We got on a bus (4 of us) the bus held about 25. Then a family of huge Americans got on (making the passenger total 8) and the driver said "That's it, we're full", and drove off!

    God no! I went to Amarillo and I wouldn't go back again. Mind you Lubbock was fairly good.
