Funny thing when people talk about that: Administrative costs are a real issue in charity. The most efficient charities I know of are only efficient because they're run by rich volunteers.

If you paid them what they're actually worth, those charities would be in the red.

But no, there's no convincing some people that uplifting the beggars in spain will do anything to improve the global economy.

Oh well.

Also a volcano no one has ever herd of erupted in the middle of no where china. The significance is its only erupted just before or during prolonged solar minimum for the last 2000 years.
Probably just coincidence.
I say volcanoes are never wrong, don't believe me, try to argue with a volcano, it will just incinerate you.
Like I said before, volcanoes erupt all the time.

We're on track for being an average year. It's just that some of the eruptions are close to civilized areas, which means they're in the news more.

We're all pooping in the pool.

And the pool is getting mighty mighty crowded.

Helping people grow where they are planted is much cheaper than trying to force them away or take care of them in a different country after they emigrate. Europe is separated from Africa by a sea. A natural border wall.

But all of South and Central America will eventually just start walking to get to the USA.

OTOH the Mediterranean is wide, with four main trafficking routes, while the Ithsmus is narrow and filled with jungle.

I am sure that many argue the current population is unsustainable, let alone projected growth. People keep posting that the U.S. population only grows because of immigrants.

1. Stop all immigration.
2. Stop all foreign aid.
3. The U.S. and the countries we help support will shrink to manageable levels.
4. ????
5. Profit!

Women's education is critical. Planned Parenthood is critical. Many cultures still treat Women as having no rights and also view the highest number of children as a status symbol.

Many argue the current population is unsustainable — at Western standards. But we can do better than that.

Immigration grows the population because those already here are concerned and doing what they can about overpopulation.

People like to talk about the number of mammograms that Planned Parenthood gives out.

That number is zero: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.a0340b75c69f
