Steyn on Self-Extinction

This Steyn guy is really good.

It's striking that, no matter how many British women think globally and sterilize locally, the population of the United Kingdom keeps rising: those London ladies assume they're saving the planet for Al Gore's polar bears, and the spotted owl, and the three-toed tree sloth, and the green-cheeked parrot. In fact, they're saving it for the cultures whose womenfolk don't get themselves sterilized. Forty per cent of children in London primary schools now speak a language other than English at home. The Muslim population of the United Kingdom is growing 10 times faster than the rest of the population. No matter how frantically the ecochondriacs tie their tubes, their country grows ever more crowded. This is a story not of "overpopulation," but of population transformation

And yes, there is a parallel in the USA.

I'm half way through one of his books (I put it down).

Very doom-and-gloom. I'm not saying it isn't statistically supported, I'm just saying it's a tough pill to swallow.

The perfect guest for the Glenn Beck show.
