About

My name is Joao Luis de Freitas Valle. I am Brazilian, an economist and have been part of the environmental movement for over 15 years. Over the years, I became a little skeptical about the effectiveness of traditional environmental approach. So, I began to explore the roots of environmental devastation: human consumption and population growth. I think the population control will be the primary means for environmental preservation.

How to spend Bill and Melinda's money: we asked and you answered

The main problem is that Bill and Melinda Gates have the mentality of a 18th century Malthusian ...

If they want to invest this huge amount of money they should revise this basic concept that the problem of population is only a problem of underdeveloped countries.

Bill and Melinda, the problem of the world, in my point of view, is the excess consumption per capita and not only the volume of consumption caused by the number of inhabitants. So if you want to solve the population problem, you must begin at your home country, since an American citizen consumes more than 150 Africans or Bolivians.
