    @Deckard truth
    We need replicants to replace humans to do jobs that humans don’t want to do

    this is how we sustain human life and migrate to new planets

    non human beings

    This guy not only does not read full length articles and jumps to conclusions by just reading click bait but he also doesn't watch the very own videos he links.

    Ok but look deeper.

    This video has 3.2 million views, and was posted 3 years ago.

    3.2 - 3 = .2 ("point 2")

    John Wall used to wear #2 and is a point; aka point 2.

    Right now the Rockets are overpopulated at the guard position so many think we should get rid of John Wall, aka point 2. This is Gates' way of saying he thinks the world is overpopulated and that we should get rid of some people.

    I can't believe I have to explain this stuff to you people.

    the earth has been around longer than time itself. On the other hand compared to how long earth has been around EVERYBODY on the planet right now technically just got here yesterday. People have predicted the end of the world plenty of times and the planet is still here

    This is a case of scientific illiteracy on your part. No one is claiming humans will end the earth. The Cali is humans will alter the climate to where certain types of life will need to migrate or not arrive.


    You do know scientifically we are in a global extinction even right? The rate of endangered and extinct species in the past century has matched previous mass extinction eras. Earth will still be here. That doesn't mean extinction level events don't occur.

    We are currently living in a 6th mass extinction event.

    The developed world obviously needs to take less care of the undeveloped world: sorry guys, malaria and cholera will keep your numbers down

    I assume you think there needs to be population control? Am I assuming correctly? You posted videos without your views so I don't know what your actual thoughts are.

    Do capitalists who invest a lot of money have an incentive to have population growth to accelerate?

    I wonder if it's a conflict of interest. We know more population = more gross domestic product.

    historically; more population = higher standard of living

    division of labor, global markets, more problem solvers innovators
