The law of unintended consequences...


So this man saves all these lives, but who is going to feed them?

Improving the life chances of people is admirable but is meaningless if they continue to have lots of children then die of starvation.

If he really wants to improve their lives he should be encouraging them to stop breeding and to move to places where food actually grows.

The population of Ethiopia is over double that of when they had the famine of the early 80's.
If the famine struck now, how many more would die?


Simply stopping them dying of one thing does not mean they won't die of something else.

There needs to be a discussion on birth control and population levels.

The world has limited resources and more people means that these rare resources are used up at an ever increasing rate.

I foresee wars over water in the next few years.
