Re: Canada’s cli­mate goals not enough: UN — Oct. 10

Most sci­en­tists believe that just slash­ing car­bon emis­sions will slow cli­mate change. Ap­par­ently, this one sim­ple engi­neer­ing so­lu­tion will save the world. If the Earth’s pop­u­la­tion re­mained con­stant I would give this so­lu­tion more cred­i­bil­ity. I sus­pect there are more fac­tors in­volved. Over­pop­u­la­tion is prob­a­bly one of the great­est threats to hu­man­ity but no­body of­fers any solutions or wants to take any ac­tion. Maybe dis­eases, hunger, star­va­tion, mass mi­gra­tion and wars will save us? Ernest Forster
