    The Population Debate - Tonight!

    Don't miss tonights population debate on the ABC following Dick Smiths "Population Puzzle" doco - after seeing the promo's for the last week or so i'm keen to see just how it is that "we're a nation of migrants and we're going to continue needing migrants". Strikes me as along the lines of the US was nation founded via a revolution and therefore is going to continue needing revolutions?!?

    Dick Smith is a great Australian!!!!

    No surprise the racial others on the program were both pro immigration

    Unfortunately nobody brought up the impact mass immigration will have on Australian cultural and racial identity.

    Good points highlighted:

    The snowball effect of getting more immigrants in to support us (pensions for the baby boomers); as they get older more will be need to support them and so on. [Unless birth rates here rise which is unlikely]

    Lower quality of life per capita as we get bigger and bigger

    Infrastructure overburdened

    Water shortages and possible future food shortages

    Increased population driven by immigration most significant factor in growth of greenhouse carbon emissions.

    Bringing in skilled workers (largest group of immigrants by far) is unjust to the developing nations of the world as this brain drain deprives these nations of essential services , and actually stops us skilling our own because it is cheaper than training our own doctors and nurses etc.

    Environmental destruction and deforestation and how this will destroy the rural spirit of our nation

    That most Australians want less people

    Dick is a good sort but he is Pro multicultural and it didn't come up because they stay clear of the Evil racism

    the Q&A after the Doco was a laugh
    Tasmanian twice the heads!!.......twice the intelligence!?
