"cost of living increase"

The govt have neglected housing for 3 decades, it's a roundabout cause of brexit - cost of living is too much because of stagnant wages, soaring houses prices and rents, both affected by immigration. Funny thing is the middle classes flat out refuse to accept that more people going after jobs = lower wage or that more people trying to rent or buy = higher housing costs, it's a very weird denial of the most fundamental aspect of capitalism which is 'supply and demand'. But hey, easier to just chant 'racism'.

I think billions is too many, it would be hard for us to live sustainably with so many people, we're buggering up everything, the from the ocean floors to the rivers, land and air, wiping out species on every continent. Over fishing, 'intensive' farming, too much deforestation etc.

"You simply aren't going to have modern society without billions of people."
I don't see why not quite honestly, a few hundred million could easily be enough.

" You can have 2 people and still produce too much CO2 for the earth to handle "
Now you're being silly.

"And you simply aren't going to revert 7 billion people back to an agrarian economy. "
So what, I've never heard anyone suggest we should do this.

Less people = less waste. The problem is one of polluting less and recycling more, and reducing the human footprint upon the ecosystem. Clean energy is not a problem, we've solved that 10 times over.

What part of co2 is a greenhouse gas don't you believe in, its a simple concept that is easily proved in a lab and humans have released staggering amounts of. Co2 into the atmosphere, enough to blanket the entire globe with several inches of co2. If you had a greenhouse with several inches of glass, it would heat up inside substantially., we're very lucky that the ocean's have taken most of the heat energy because if it hadn't we'd be very very fkkd right now, 30deg C hotter iirc. Where fkkn preview gone?

The difference between me and the original poster is I don't have this crazy blind hatred that anti-SJWs often seem to have. I was pointing out that they often seem to be various combinations of white supremicists, bigots and racists and sexists and even when they're not, they're often fueling the hatred of these hate filled prejudiced groups.

I don't like prejudice, the only hatred I have is of fallacious arguments, lies and the twisting of the truth that comes from groups with vested interests such as industry lobbyists, 'think tanks' and the rest of the 'swamp dwellers'.

And do you know who always comes across as fake news reading, racist sexist, hate filled 'WASP's? People who use the term 'SJW'. This instant I hear this term I think sad misinformed person who can't tell the truth from fiction and can't partake in an argument without multiple fallacies, no point in interacting with them, time to move on.
