UK population must fall to 30m, says Porritt Jonathan Leake and Brendan Montague
JONATHON PORRITT, one of Gordon Browns leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society.
Porritts call will come at this weeks 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.
However, Porritt is winning scientific backing. Professor Chris Rapley, director of the Science Museum, will use the OPT conference, to be held at the Royal Statistical Society, to warn that population growth could help derail attempts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Rapley, who formerly ran the British Antarctic Survey, said humanity was emitting the equivalent of 50 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.
We have to cut this by 80%, and population growth is going to make that much harder, he said.

Here it comes. The only way the greens will meet their goals for a final solution to global warming is with Zyklon B.
They could start by kicking out some Muslims
The answer is “Soilent Green”!
so, if they start by deporting ALL the illegal immigrants back to Africa and islam, how many left to go?
I wonder what the population of Manhattan will have to be reduced to for sustainability?
hmmmm - so who decides which 30 million gets to die?
Part of the DNA of Socialism. Human life has no value. Thus the death camps, the gulag, the cultural revolution, Cambodia.
The Brits will not lose population, they will just lose their culture.
So now I understand the real function of the National Health Service...
Jonathan Porritt receiving honorary degree.
Among his other accomplishments, he is the environmental adviser to Prince Charles.
He has the right to be a baron, but so far has refused it. Like Lord Obama, he has two daughters.
Evil leftists idiots. They let milliosn of “asulum seekers’ aka illegal aliens from places like Islamic countries and Africa flood in and now they are talking about a population explosion. Fools.
There’s always the “Chinese Final Solution.”
One child limits and forced abortions.
Except for Muslims, of course. They would not want to offend them.
Are British leftists seeking to engage in some kind of cultural suicide pact?
Why the environmental Khmer Rouge, of course!
Hey, I will even buy into it when you agree that 100% of all immigration must stop and all illegals must leave.
Sine quo non
