LONDON, Oct 2 (LSN) – Researchers from the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Cornell University have both claimed to find scientific evidence for the need for mass population control. Despite the refutations of their so-called evidence by thousands of credible scientists, the radical environmentalists continue to purport that an overabundance of human beings on the planet are the main causes of “dramatic decline in the state of the natural world.”

On Thursday the WWF released its Living Planet Index (LPI), which claims to have analyzed “the deterioration of the world’s forest, freshwater and marine ecosystems between 1970 and 1995” and found that humans have destroyed 30 per cent of the natural world.

Another study released Wednesday by researchers from Cornell University said that “life on earth is killing us.” Ecology professor David Pimentel and his team wrote in the October journal of Bioscience that “global- warming” and over-population threaten all humanity with disease and death. As a solution to the situation they present, the researchers encourage “population control.”
