    Because people want to have a slice of the prosperity pie that the previous generations had.

    How sad that Max needs to troll to people who think the environment is dying! It’s much better now, today, than 40 years ago. Remember the Ozone layer?

    How about the cleaning up of the Great Lakes?

    Or the re-growth in the Eastern US forests?

    Remember DDT? We banned that, as well as lead paint.

    Then there is… recycling. An entire industry has grown from zero. Yes, we are far better off today in the environment than we were 40 years ago.

    Of course, none of that matters when you’re pandering for page views. Whatever sticks to the wall is what is important. If yellow trolley cars were important, then we would have article after article about them. Sad. Max, stick to financials – that’s where your expertise lies.

    There are simply way to many people wanting to consume much. We cut to may trees, eat lots of meat, use stuff we do not need etc. etc. etc.

    We are what Mark says: multi-cellular bacteria, with religious fantasies of our own importance. Although I would compare us with the water lily: and we are covering the pond, suffocating the life underneath.

    No carbon tax will fix that.

    @jack lee,
    I don’t see how the environment is getting better. 3 species a day or more dissappearing, megaflora and fauna on the brink with only 20 or 30 pairs left for many examples. I’ve seen the destruction of unique habitat in many places such as Madagascar,Indonesia and Venezuela where I saw 16 separate huge fires for 100′s of miles from a plane-smoke everywhere like the whole world on fire. Virgin rain forest chopped down everywhere not even used as wood to make way for so called eco fuel. The world stretches a little further than the great lakes and N Eastern forests.
    When our grandchildren ask where the largest animal that ever existed went( the blue whale) or the unique aye aye lemur or northern white rhino or snow leopard or yangtze river dolphin(probably already extinct not seen for 8 yrs) or mountain gorilla, What ru going to tell them ? That u have some new growth forests or cleaner air? Great lets have more mono-culture eh?

    As u mention the ozone layer…
    http://undsci.berkeley.edu/article/0_0_0/ozone_depletion_09
    ”With the CFC-ban in place, atmospheric levels of chlorine are beginning to decline and the ozone layer is, we hope, on its way to recovery. If our current scientific understanding of the situation is correct, the ozone hole will start to shrink significantly by around 2018, with full recovery not expected until around 2070. ”

  29. Angelo says:

    “Why Do So Many People Believe In The Fantasy Of Infinite Growth On A Finite Planet?”

    A finite planet the surface of which we have barely scratched in a universe in which we are so small that we are virtually lost.

    I must say that from my look at geography v population, and observations during extensive intercontinental travel, there seems to me to be huge areas of the world that are completely uninhabited. This discussion is bogus for this century and we deserve to be snuffed out if we can not figure a way to free ourselves from our embryonic earth. Within the next couple of centuries.

    How many times does the UK land mass fit into the USA or Australia or Canada? Times that by around 60,000,000 and you still will not be at capacity. Most of the UK is countryside with that large population and a 250 people per kilometer density. Apart from India and Monaco the rest of the world has huge room for expansion before reaching there.

    The USA population would have to grow 10 times bigger to around 2.5 billion to catch up with the UK and India. Russia which is virtually twice the size of the USA would have to see a population explosion of over 30 times to do the same. Canada would have to see its population grow by around 100 times.

    And that is just the beginning. For the UK to catch up to Monaco, it’s population would still have to increase over 65 times! That would be virtually 5000 times for Canada’s population. That would give the USA a possible population of 129,746,835,443 give or take a few thousand (about 500 times current population).

    Then there’s the sea, under ground and the universe. Plenty of room.

Then bird nests are lovely and beaver dams, but not awful stinky human things especially nuclear stuff… thats not natural boo hoo hoo! F@*king bunch of pessimists.

    Yes, monkeys can use stones to smash nut shells. We find special elements and create power. OK when the monkey slips, she hurts her finger and when we slip it is somewhat scaled up. It’s still f-ing nature we are natural, that’s just our specialty. Are we or the things we do unnatural? No, unless we are perhaps super or even supra natural. Just more grey than white wizards at the moment. Not quite super yet.

    @Mike/Canada,

    I just read a synopsis of it on Wiki. My assertion is that very much of environmental destruction is a symptom of the government backed usury and counterfeiting cartel. The population is so desperate running in the rat race the bankers create that they have little energy left to be concerned with the environment.

  41. Dark Markets says:

    Why Do So Many People Believe In The Fantasy Of Infinite Growth On A Finite Planet?”

    good one! The simple answer: Self-centric feelings of SUPERIORITY over one’s neighbors, and especially the “unwashed masses” beyond the dark forest…

    This self-centric superiority, self-righteousness, arrogance, SCORN and CONTEMPT of those lower on the social pecking order than you, is amplified by MOST ORGANIZED RELIGIONS, which all PREACH “humility,” but in practice – among their bureaucracy and established authority – promote a self-righteous CONTEMPT of the “un-saved,” the “un-washed,” the “un-chosen;” those out-of-the-fold.
    Religious scholar Michael Lind (“Made in Texas”)
    http://www.amazon.com/Made-Texas-Southern-Takeover-American/dp/0465041213
    discusses how, in the case of the alliance of former enemies, the Anglo + Celtic Protestant fundamentalists, + the Northeast (psuedo) “intellectual” neo-cons, this CONTEMPT for disposable “unwashed masses” translates in to policies that ACTUALLY SEEK to DESTROY the environment – truly the SUICIDAL, GENOCIDAL, ARMAGEDDON baseed fantasies of destruction and mass-death that Max labels as “suicidal bankers”!

    Right on, another Rush fan. I had an ES335 for a while back and should have kept it. That is a classic, and very versatile. I bought a 1970 Les Paul Custom and still have it. Since then, I bought a Manuel Reyes Jr. flamenco guitar (hand made in Spain). and an Amalio Burguet (also made by the man himself in Spain). I have been on a Flamenco kick as well.

    Thanks for your earlier comment.

    “My assertion is that very much of environmental destruction is a symptom of the government backed usury and counterfeiting cartel.”

    So are you saying this is a cycle , Production , Destruction, Construction?

  58. JonnyJames says:

    @Mike/Canada
    I think at that stage, Neil was into Ayn Rand (not anymore) and he was writing as a metaphor for world communist dictatorship. He was pro-individual against the power of the state. Now the state has been captured by bankster/corporate interests (neo fascism) . Funny, it turned out that communist dictatorship is dead and neo-fascism is on the rise. Like George Carlin famously quipped: “The Germans lost WWII, but the Nazis won”.

    Today I think of the high priests of the Temples of Syrinx as folks like Ray Kurzweil trying to engineer eternal life, as well as the neo-fascist Oligarch elitists enslaving us and destroying everything in their path.

    I am saying that it takes energy and pollution to produce a tank that fires a missile that creates more energy and destruction. Not thinking of it as the circle of life. Perhaps a circle of death destruction and pollution. ;)

    P.S. I did not think the reductive aspect of the poor carbon life forms that are snuffed out had a place in the equation. Not at all. I am biased.

    Of course you have to break eggs to make an omelet. But then you have an omelet.

    The problem with the US MIC is that there is a crater where the eggs, fridge and house used to be to hide the fact that the corrupt leadership has eaten all the omelet.

    I just find there’s allot of thought from bloggers putting in there conceptions on what the cause is, I Just do not see allot of ,problem solving .
    I think F. Beard said that well ” the rat race keeps us to occupied, even on this site I notice there’s allot of care about how much silver is climbing, how much The fed is fucking everyone.. I think if your search has lead you to a site like this and your reading threw the blogs , you know these things all ready , even tho every day, allot of the same things get repeated over just in a more fancy way.
    Look I,m not trying to be self-righteous and saying I have any answers, I just think people that care this much would have more to share in what might a start a change . I see the same crazy on Zero hedge , Info wars . The economical collapse.

  65. twotone says:

    The old Bumper-Sticker “Will No-Growthers Feed Your Family” was more than just a slogan during the late 60′s and into the 80′s-90′s. Espousing ‘themes’ like ” Infinite Growth is not possible” got yours truly kicked off of hiring lists that could have advanced a lot of people from labor to management. I survived with help from God and Duct Tape, but inane ideas about prosperity have fueled a storm of retardation (called “no guts, no glory”) in all walks of life; and what would have been a wholesome future is now a dreary ghost of the dreams of 40 years ago. I am always asking myself “….is this a free market reaction to loss of innocence, or is there a secret Fabian Dis-Order working furiously to bring about total belief in lies and the impossible?”.

  72. JailBanksters says:

    The entire system that democracy is based on requires that everything expands. People, Money and Consumption must constanly expand to keep the Ponzi schemes afloat. As long as everything goes up the Ponzi scheme could have gone on for another 100 years. However, China threw a spanner in Works by making things Cheaper and People wanting cheaper stuff. I just replaced a Tap in my Kitchen for $70, 10 Years ago it cost me $130 (I kept the receipt), I figured it would $200 due to Inflation. The current Ponzi System can not continue to expand as long as China makes things cheaper every year. Something has to give, the current system is totally broken and no amount of Silver, Gold, Carbon Tax or Creating Digital Money will fix it.

    I would say it is not that many people think there can be infinite growth on a finite world, but that many people do not know how to think.
    Schools have been blamed for kids not learning how to write, read, or do arithmetic. And often schools do not teach, and take the time away from the kids who want to learn how, by making them the guinea pigs in the unsolicited human experiments that the “education” system conducts. This also results in many people never learning how to think, or having the tools to learn how on their own. The Department of Education is full of communists that need to be disposed of.

    LOL! I know how you feel! I was talked into going to college, only to discover the depth of corruption in the system that was designed to keep me dumb. So I struck out on my own to learn everything I could about everything that would be useful to changing the world for the better. But then after leaning, faced the obstacles in this country of trying to convince any body what needed to be changed. Guess what? Then, as now, most people do not give a shit. The biggest mistake I ever made was not leaving home sooner when growing up. I should have left this country, but back then still held out hope that this country would lead the world into the future. But now at the end of my life I only find the future I sought for every body is farther away than it was 50 years ago. Bitter dregs.

    @Mark Lytle – Canada is beautiful in the summer. I have some good memories of the grandparent’s house and my grandma making pie from the rhubarb in her backyard. The grandparents had a cabin on the lake. It smelled of burning citronella at night. Breakfast was cooked on the wood stove in the kitchen. Out on the lake the loons would call in the morning and we’d canoe around. The cabin bedrooms smelled of musky old magazines from the 1930s.

    The New World Order will be the savior, culling most of the world’s population and leaving just enough of us around to serve their every beck and call.

    It’s all written there on the Georgia Guidestones for those of you who aren’t aware of this stuff. It’s all good. The planet will be fine.

    But you will be dead.

    1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

    You can read the rest at the link. Enjoy this planet while you can. You’re a dead person walking.

    @Angelo
    Well in the city where i Live , 90% ex-union auto workers , with heavy U S A influence , 50% live petty good and there kept dum down , with the union brain washing. With that said I cant find a group like SLA in my neck of the woods.
    What I do is , I find people that need help on my own , The best way , I look for others that donate there time., then I work threw them. I found some of the best ways , where just trying to build relationships on your streets. I have seniors that live on my street , I cut there lawns , shovel there snow , trim there trees ect . That act has spread now 3 others on my street. They have started doing the same, Nothing in return, just a good ack of kindness for someone who cant do for themselves . My own rule for my self is ” offer 5 hrs a week to anyone that needs it ” and 10% of my paper . More people ask why I do what I do , then I tell them , in the most simple way that you can about the greed and corruption that I see, and That you have start somewhere.
    I know that sounds abit ” tree huger ” I,m far from It , just thought I would start with the basics, with hopes that kindness will make the bond that’s lacking in people. The best tool I gave people is a free C D

    Oh Canada .. Its simple but its a start to understanding .

  85. Alastair Carnegie says:

    In order to ensure demographic population stability 10 family units must bear 22 children. In prosperous nations that figure is 16 to 18 children, and their population is only maintained by immigration. In poor and developing nations the figure is more like 80 children per 10 family units. The logical conclusion is that ‘prosperity’ is a good way to reduce world population. When all our energy needs are provided by sustainables like Solar, Wind, Tidal and Wave, The impact of humanity on our planet can be positive rather than negative. We can become good stewards! In just four generations, universal prosperity could halve the world population harmlessly.

    Don’t forget that a lot of the kids don’t want to learn either. The blame needs to be balanced out on both sides. (And I am not a teacher and have zero patience to be a teacher.)

  87. Robert Mockan says:

    @ Kevin Eshbach

    Kid who do not want to learn, have learned to not want to learn. It is the nature of our brains that what consitutes neural tissue functioning and interacting with the physical universe is …learning. It takes institutionalized schooling under government control to take a natural behavior, and render minds dysfunctional to such a degree, that kids… do not want to learn. There is no way to understate the evil purpose of the insane oligarchs.
    And yes, it does come back to them, in the end.
