Porritt – UK Population Must Fall to 30M

  • From 61 million people to 30 million. How exactly does this fella think UK is going to ‘remove’ half its population. There are a lot of strange people around with even stranger ideas. This certainly reminds me of the Illuminati’s de-population plan.
     
  • The Sunday Times UK reports :
     
    JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Brown’s leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society. Porritt’s call will come at this week’s annual conference of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), of which he is patron.
     
    The trust will release research suggesting UK population must be cut to 30m if the country wants to feed itself sustainably. Porritt said: “Population growth, plus economic growth, is putting the world under terrible pressure. 
     
    “Each person in Britain has far more impact on the environment than those in developing countries so cutting our population is one way to reduce that impact.”
      …….
    Population growth is one of the most politically sensitive environmental problems. The issues it raises, including religion, culture and immigration policy, have proved too toxic for most green groups.
     
    Such views on population have split the green movement. George Monbiot, a prominent writer on green issues, has criticised population campaigners, arguing that “relentless” economic growth is a greater threat.
     
    Many experts believe that, since Europeans and Americans have such a lopsided impact on the environment, the world would benefit more from reducing their populations than by making cuts in developing countries.
     
    This is part of the thinking behind the OPT’s call for Britain to cut population to 30m — roughly what it was in late Victorian times. Britain’s population is expected to grow from 61m now to 71m by 2031. Some politicians support a reduction. 
        …..
    Despite these comments, however, government and Conservative spokesmen this weekend both distanced themselves from any population policy.

Joseph Stiglitz – Geithner Plan will Rob American Taxpayers

  • Stiglitz is absolutely right ! This is legalized theft. No better than daylight robbery. Reuters reports :
     
    The U.S. government plan to rid banks of toxic assets will rob American taxpayers by exposing them to too much risk and is unlikely to work as long as the economy remains weak, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz said on Tuesday.
     
    “The Geithner plan is very badly flawed,” Stiglitz told Reuters in an interview during a Credit Suisse Asian Investment Conference in Hong Kong.
     
    U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s plan to wipe up to US$1 trillion in bad debt off banks’ balance sheets, unveiled on Monday, offered “perverse incentives,” Stiglitz said.
     
    The U.S. government is basically using the taxpayer to guarantee against downside risk on the value of these assets, while giving the upside, or potential profits, to private investors, he said.
     
    “Quite frankly, this amounts to robbery of the American people. I don’t think it’s going to work because I think there’ll be a lot of anger about putting the losses so much on the shoulder of the American taxpayer.”
     
    Even if the plan clears banks of massive toxic debt, worries about the economic outlook mean banks could still be unwilling to make fresh loans, while the prospect of a higher tax burden to pay for various government stimulus plans could further undermine U.S. consumers, he said.
      ….
    Stiglitz welcomed China’s proposal on Monday for an overhaul of the world monetary system in which Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China, said the IMF’s Special Drawing Right has the potential to become a super-sovereign reserve currency.
     
    Stiglitz has long called for the U.S. dollar to be replaced as the only reserve currency. Basing a reserve system on a single currency whose strength depends on confidence its own economy is not a good basis for a global system, he says.
     
    “We may be at the beginning of a loss of confidence (in the U.S. dollar reserve system),” he said. “I think there is support for some sort of global reserve system.”

London G20 Summit: Last Chance Before Global Geopolitical Dislocation – 1 World Central Bank & 1 World Currency

  • The drive towards the centralization of control continues. This is the major push towards a 1 world ‘sovereign’ bank to issue a 1 world currency and undoubtedly ‘666’ in the not too distant future.
     
  • This crisis is engineered by the Illuminati banksters for the creation of this new global ‘sovereign’ bank entity to enable global government. What do these Satanists want? A dictatorial police state that micro-chips all its citizens with ‘666’. This is just what the Bible predicted.
     
  • In the past week, China, Russia and many emerging countries are calling for a new global currency to replace the USD. This is just what the Illuminati planned for, using their Hegelian dialectic: thesis, anti-thesis and synthesis. Or more easily understood: Action, Reaction and Solution.
     
  • You first engineer a crisis (Action). The people respond to this engineered crisis (Reaction). You introduce your pre-planned Solution. Of course, the sheeple do not know that the crisis was manufactured in the first place to drive them to the Solution. The Solution will look like the most logical, well thought out answer and will totally resolve the problem. Any logical, rational person will think that this Solution is the answer. But of course there are a lot of hidden agendas to this Solution.
     
  • I am an admirer of GEAB’s forecasts. They have been exceptionally accurate and lucid in pointing to the problems, trends and issues of the crisis. (Note: I am in no way implying that they are part of the Illuminati.) Franck Biancheri of GEAB comments :
     
    Open letter to the G20 leaders
     
    Ladies and Gentlemen,
     
    Your next summit takes place in a few days in London; but are you aware that you have less than a semester to prevent the world from plunging into a crisis that will take at least a decade to resolve, accompanied by a whole series of tragedies and ferment? Therefore, this open letter by LEAP/E2020, who saw the arrival of a « global systemic crisis » as early as three years ago, intends to briefly explain why it happened and how to limit further damage. 
       ……
    This crisis is getting more and more dangerous. Recently, in the 32nd edition of its Bulletin, LEAP/E2020 raised an alarm of direct concern to you, the leaders of the G20. If, when gathered in London next April 2nd, you are not able to adopt a number of bold and innovative decisions, focused on the essential issues and problems, and to initiate them by summer 2009, then the crisis will entail a « general geopolitical dislocation » by the end of the year, affecting the international system as well as the very structure of large political entities such as the United States, Russia, China or the EU. Any chance for you to control the fate of the 6 billion inhabitants of the world will then be over. 
       
    Your choice: a 3- to 5-year crisis or a decade-at-least long crisis? 
       ….
    In the case of a major crisis, one must get to the heart of the matter. The only choice is between undertaking a number of radical changes, thus greatly shortening the duration of the crisis and diminishing its tragic outcome or, on the contrary, refusing to make any such changes in an attempt to save what is left of the present system, thus extending the crisis’ duration and increasing all the negative consequences. In London, next April 2nd, you can either pave the way for the crisis to be solved in an organised manner in 3 to 5 years, or drag the world through a terrible decade.
      
    We will content ourselves with giving you three recommendations that we consider strategic ones in the sense that, according to LEAP/E2020, if they have not been initiated by this summer 2009, global geopolitical dislocation will become inevitable from the end of this year onward. 

     
    LEAP’S THREE STRATEGIC RECOMMENDATIONS 
     
    1. The key to solving the crisis lies in creating a new international reserve currency!
     
    The first recommendation is a very simple idea: reform the international monetary system inherited post-wwii and create a new international reserve currency. The US Dollar and economy are no longer capable of supporting the current global economic, financial and monetary order. As long as this strategic problem is not directly addressed and solved, the crisis will grow. Indeed it is at the heart of the crises of derivative financial products, banks, energy prices… and of their consequences in terms of mass unemployment and collapsing living standards.
     
    It is therefore of vital importance that this issue should be the main subject of the G20 summit, and that the first steps towards a solution are initiated. In fact, the solution to this problem is well-known, it is about creating an international reserve currency (which could be called the « Global ») based on a basket of currencies corresponding to the world’s largest economies, i.e. US dollar, Euro, Yen, Yuan, Khaleeji(common currency of oil-producing Gulf states, to be launched in January 2010), Ruble, Real…, managed by a « World Monetary Institute » whose Board will reflect the respective weight of the economies whose currencies comprise the « Global ». You must ask the imf andconcerned central banks to prepare this plan for June 2009, with an implementation date of January 1st, 2010.
     
    This is the only way for you to regain some control over currently unwinding events, and this is the only way for you to bring about shared global management, based on a shared currency located at the centre of economic and financial activity. According to LEAP/E2020, if this alternative to the currently collapsing system has not been initiated by this summer 2009, proving that there is another solution than the « every man for himself » approach, today’s international system will not survive this summer. 

      ….
    2. Set up bank control schemes as soon as possible!
     
    The second recommendation has already been mentioned many times in the preliminary debates to your upcoming summit. It should therefore be easy to adopt. It is about creating, before the end of this year, a scheme of bank control on a global scale, suppressing all the system’s « black holes ». A number of options have already been suggested by your experts. Make up your mind now: nationalize financial institutions as soon as is necessary! It is the only way to prevent a new episode of massive indebtment by them (the kind of episode which significantly contributed to the current crisis), and to show to the general public that you have some credibility to deal with bankers.
     
    3. Get the IMF to assess the US, UK and Swiss financial systems!
     
    The third recommendation relates to a politically sensitive issue, which cannot be ignored. It is essential that, no later than July 2009, the imf presents to the G20 an independent assessment of the three national financial systems at the heart of the current financial crisis: US, UK and Switzerland. No sustainable recommendation can be efficiently implemented as long as no one has any clear understanding of the damage caused by the crisis inside these three pillars of the global financial system. It is no longer time to be polite with the countries located at the centre of the current financial chaos.
     

        
  • Will the G20 move towards a 1 world ‘sovereign’ bank and 1 world currency? I think so ! Is this the end of the USD? I think so! A planned and engineered end. It does not look good for Americans.
