Why is the British government spending £814 millions on vaccines for the third world? Why is Bill Gates, too – and, for that matter, funding anti-malaria stuff? Yes, it’s tragic that Africans have a hard time, but they’re going to have a much, much harder one if we don’t tackle our massive environmental problems. The oceans are dying, the forests being cut down. Everywhere is suffering the consequences of too large a human population. Let’s stop saving people: we’re only condemning them, and ultimately us, to misery. Our only hope is something like bird flu.
