Michele Duggar doesn't believe overpopulation is a problem



How clueless and selfish can you be ?

And by selfish I mean that there is NO WAY one woman can give enough nurturing and care for NINETEEN kids.

quote:

Michelle Duggar, reality TV star and mother of 19, doesn't believe in overpopulation. In a Web interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, the star of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" remarked that the idea of overpopulation isn’t accurate.

”Well, first off, the idea of overpopulation is not accurate because really the entire population of the world, if they were stretched shoulder to shoulder, could fit within the city limits of Jacksonville,” Duggar said. The land area of Jacksonville is between 758 and 885 square miles. The world population is a little over 7 billion, which would equal about 8,500,000 people per square mile.

But overpopulation, according to experts, isn't just about the number of people on a piece of land. James Hopkins' site on the human population crisis states, "Overpopulation applies much more so to the number of people in an area exceeding the resources and the carrying capacity of the environment necessary to sustain human activities."

Scientists have called overpopulation the worst problem the environment faces. "Overpopulation is the only problem," said Dr. Charles A. Hall, a systems ecologist in 2009. "If we had 100 million people on Earth -- or better, 10 million -- no others would be a problem."

In a speech earlier this month, Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich remarked that to give everyone the kind of standard of living enjoyed by the average Kansas resident, we would need about four or five other Earths.

nice generalization. she gives far more nurturing to her 19 kids than these welfare queens give to any of their children.

start a thread on those leaches of society, leave these nice people alone

you have hardly proven that it is.

Overpopulation isn't the problem - the problem is lack of honest capitalism in much of the world.

If you were really so concerned about overpopulation, why haven't you given the ultimate sacrifice of self in the pursuit of this good?

I get it. You are saying that everyone should just get in the pile and reduce the future population. I knew there was a gay connection in here somewhere.

It isn't.

Looks like you're the clueless one. We do not have an over population problem. Any scientist saying otherwise is a blithering idiot.

No. A lot of my friends are straight. It sounds silly.

I do think it's sad that a lot of people don't think overpopulation is a problem. We are running out of resources. Guess it's easier just to stick your head in the sand...

Yeah, yeah, everyone laughs at Ehrlich, Malthus, et al. The population graphs went bonkers with the introduction of fossil fuels, and they will crash just as spectactularly in the absence of them.

I wouldn't term her as selfish. Those kids will most likely be caring, hard working people when they grow up. We need more of those.

Toddy, how in the hell can you say that you have a "right" to adopt children but at the same time condemn Michele Duggar for having what you deem as too many children?

Honestly, Turdy, the more of you guys that don't breed the more people having 19 kids don't need to concern themselves with over-population.

You're so funny. You're ignorance is astounding. It really is comical.

Tell me. Which resources concern you? I'm up for a bit of a chuckle.

Pretty obvious that much of the earths resources are stretched to the limit, but there is really no turning back at this point. Maybe it is best just to go ahead and burn through them and pretend that it's not a problem. To bad for the little ones though.

Actually it is your head that is in your sand

One of the biggest challenges the future will face is underpopulation

People that say overpopulation is a problem are fricking dullards, you included

re: Michele Duggar doesn't believe overpopulation is a problem


whether or not overpopulation is real is besides the point - the duggars certainly shouldnt be a target for toddy's ridiculous attack.

hell even octo-mom would have been a much better target if he didnt want to call out welfare moms or birthers of the hordes of starving children in african countries
