Sending millions to die isn't crule then?
Common misconception. They aren't ours
to send to die at all. They don't belong to us.
Why fight nature? This is a bad thing to do, because we don't have a method, currently, that will allow life to continue on living for another billion years. Nature obviously has it pretty down pat.
Like I said, it is FAR more cruel to continue to try and help them. They can either suffer and die forever, or they can suffer and die for a hundred years and then have a population roughly proportionate to that of their agricultural output.
Starving isn't a cruel way to die.
Every single species on this planet faces it at some point, why should we be any different?
"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."
