Africa is No More Overpopulated than Iraq was a Haven for Weapons of Mass Destruction

I just hate it when I am bamboozled, swindled, schmoozed, lied to, lulled into submission and otherwise spoon fed what I am supposed to believe in the media. Wake up journalists! The media is falling all over itself and promoting the National Geographic and “conservation” occult agenda of depopulation politics in Africa by publishing and not vetting some simple math in the just-released United Nations Atlas of Africa.

The cornerstone of the depopulation agenda is allegedly the “protection” of the African environment from the people who live there.

The United Nations’ Atlas maintains that in 1950 there were 13.5 hectares of land per person in Africa, but by 1990 this had shrunk to 4.7 hectares per person and by 2005 to 3.2 hectares per person – while on present population growth estimates, by 2050 the amount will be 1.5 hectares per person.

Sounds bad. But what in the heck is a hectare? I know. Do you? Make it your business to know, because the devil is the details. Otherwise we will believe the propaganda that the innocent people of Africa are weapons of mass destruction. We fell for it once. Are you ready to fall for it again?

One mysterious hectare equals 2.47 acres, or to be exact, 2.47105381 acres.

The U.S. Census Bureau claims that as of 2006, there were 301,139,947 of us Americans chewing up 2.3 billion acres of land and environment. (USDA Economic Information Bulletin No. (EIB-14) 54 pp, May 2006)

Do the math.

2.3 billion acres converts to 931,174,089 of those mysterious hectares as the area of the United States.

Do some more math.

In the United States, that means we have .32 people per hectare, or 3.1 hectares per person!

My God! We have the same amount of people per hectare as the poor sons of bitches in Africa. But would we allow the conservation organizations to dictate our land use and population planning?

Based on projections made by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Census Bureau, the American population is projected to increase to 392 million by 2050 -- more than a 50 percent increase from the 1990 population size.

Amazing. We look to be worse off than Africa, but no one is shoving Depo Provera down our collective throats like the conservation organizations are doing in Africa.

International depopulation politics rules the African continent. Consider that the population is barely sustainable with an average live span of 45, and in some places less than that.
