Prof Rectenwald:

MR Q: What is your ecological carrying capacity definition?

I received your 21 Oct 2020 email [21 Oct: MR Re EoP Re: MR: Peacenik Trump wants to end endless wars] in response to my 12 Oct email [12 Oct: EoP Re: MRectenwald: Peacenik Trump wants to end endless wars] in response to your article [Michael Rectenwald: In backing Biden, the leftist ‘resistance’ to Trump is perpetuating illegal US invasions & wars, & handing victory to the neocons, via Attack the System]

Thank you for your question.

NYU-MR: How do you know what the “ecological carrying capacities”?

EoP-LJ: If my interpretations of academic ecological carrying capacity research is accurate, it does not appear as if there is a major environmental footprint researcher academic consensus amongst environmental consumption and procreation footprint academic researchers as to what the ecological carrying capacity limits are for different eco-regions.  

In terms of carrying capacity science, I imagine consumption and footprint academic researchers find themselves in the same place as Orville and Wilbur Wright. They can objectively see that there are exceptions to natural gravity laws, that enable birds to fly. They can see that overpopulation and overconsumption are a root cause of resource depletion and resource conflict. As of date Wright Footprint Brother academic researchers have not found the 100% academic certainty specific natural law carrying capacity limit factors for eco-regions; they are still researching and tinkering with their carrying capacity airplanes research.

The primary consumption and procreation footprint researchers are included in the McVeigh [mcveigh2020] Campaigns Procreation and Consumption Footprint Science Expert Commission [11 Sep: McV20 EoP Sci-Cult Law Judge Picks A to DJT20 WiP Law Judge Picks Q]:

The EoP law temporary – consumption and procreation – footprint definition can be found at [eop-footprint: mcv20: PDF: pp.40-43/71]. If or when EoP law is implemented as international law, that will be the procreation and consumption working hypothesis foundation starting point.

[2.2] Carrying Capacity Sustainability: I=PAT Equation:
[A]  For activities to be genuinely sustainable it must be possible for them to continue indefinitely. The impact of humanity on the environment and the demands that people place on the resources available on the planet can be summarised by what is known as the Ehrlich or IPAT equation, I=PAT. I = impact on the environment or demand for resources, P = population size, A = affluence and T = technology. The two most important conclusions deriving from this IPAT footprint relationship are that: (i) the Earth can support only a limited number of people, at a certain level of affluence, in a sustainable manner; and (ii) Population and Consumption must be reduced to below EoP Footprint carrying capacity.

[2.3] Carrying Capacity aka Biocapacity Limits:
[A]  The maximum number of individuals that can be supported sustainably by a given environment is known as its ‘carrying capacity’. Worldwide the total amount of biologically productive land and sea amounts to 12 billion global hectares (gha); or 1.8 gha each if divided by 6.7 billion each. In accordance with the proactive conservation policies of Bhutan and recommendations by The Global Deal for Nature, EoP Footprint sets aside 60% of biologically productive land to be returned to its natural state, for other species and wildlife conservation purposes. That means that the total amount of biologically productive carrying capacity land available to humans is 40% of 12 billion; which amounts to 4.8 billion gha total; or 40% of 1.8 gha, which is 0.72 gha each.
[B]  Population factor is relevant, because the more humans there are, the less biologically productive land there is for everyone else. For example: Biocapacity limits of 6.7, 3.5, 1 Billion, 500, 250 & 100 Million: 4.8 billion global hectares of biologically productive land and water divided by (a) 6.7 billion humans, equals: 0.71 gha each; (b) 3.5 billion equals 1.37 gha each; (c) 1 billion equals 4.8 gha each; (d) 500 million equals 9.6 gha each; (e) 250 million equals 19.2 gha; (f) 100 million equals 48 gha each.

[2.4] Procreation Factor:
[A]  As noted, the more people there are; the less biologically productive land there is available for everyone else. According to the research of Paul Murtaugh, the procreation factor that should be added by ecology footprint organisations to their Consumption footprint calculators, is 20 per child. [Each Child increases a parent’s cumulative consumption footprint by factor of 20]

[2.5] Difference between Sustainable Responsible Freedom citizen v Unsustainable Crime of Aggression Scarcity Combatant:
[A]  An individuals IPAT footprint is a result of: (A) Consumption Footprint multiplied by (B) Procreation Factor (Every child increases 20 Child Factor). If their IPAT footprint is below carrying capacity limits, they are an Eco-Innocent Leaver; if their IPAT footprint is above carrying capacity limits, they are a Taker Crime of Aggression Scarcity Combatant.

[2.6] Total Footprint = Consumption x Procreation Factor.
[A]  EoP SciCult law will designate a particular footprint calculator – presumably Global Footprint Network (copy available at Earth Day) or Center for Sustainable Economy  – as the temporary official EoP SciCult law global standard footprint calculator, pending completion of EoP Footprint calculator database.
[a] To work out your Consumption footprint; you will use the Consumption Footprint calculator. Current online footprint calculators: Global Footprint Network (copy available at Earth Day) or Center for Sustainable Economy; EcoCampus. See more at Global Footprint’s Application Standards, where they detail how their calculators calculate Consumption footprints. The quiz will ask you various questions about your consumption habits, and provide you with a final consumption footprint in global hectares which is your ‘consumption footprint’. For the purposes of this calculation; avoid footprint calculator quizzes that do not provide you with your final gha consumption footprint amount, such as for example: World Wildlife Fund’s footprint calculator  or Stanford International Students  (which is excellent and has great detail; but does not provide you with a final footprint in gha terms).
[B]  Multiply your consumption footprint gha amount by your Procreation Factor: factor of 0.5 for zero children; factor of 20 for each child, one child: 20, two children: 40, three children: 60 and so on.. The total amount is your Total Footprint.
[a] For example: Applicants Consumption Footprint using Sustainable Economy’s Myfootprint.org quiz, was 12.75  global hectares (gha)  [now 15.13 , presumably due to increased population since original quiz was taken]. She has no children, consequently her procreation factor is 0.5. Consumption (12.75) x Procreation (0.5) = Total Eco Footprint of between 6.375 gha.

As noted in Orderly and Humane Shut Down of Global Economy summary section [eop-sdwipecon: mcv20: PDF: pp.63-67/71] as soon as – or hopefully prior thereto – EoP law is implemented as international law:

Shut Down Ponzi Swamp Economy {eop-sdwipecon}
Global EoP SciCult intn-law Implementation:
[1.1] One Child Law [one-child-law ]
[1.2] Land Reform Claim [eop-landreform ]:
Minister of Justice and Land Reform files land reform claim notice: All individuals and organizations property – above and beyond the property ration level for that eco-region – will be nationalized by the state.
[2]  6 – 12 months legislative global emergency implementation deadline:
[..]
[2.5] Minister of Environment & Education:
[A]        Footprint scientists to setup a simple easy to understand Global Land Footprint database to formalize carrying capacity footprint [eop-footprint] limits for the different eco-regions. Upon the deadline date, it shall be known how many Responsible Freedom oaths citizens there are in the nation. Each eco-region’s footprint will determine the size of a responsible freedom citizen in that eco-regions property ration [property-ration].

The EoP SciCult Law [eop-scicultlaw: mcv20: PDF: pp.49-52/71] section describes how citizens will be able to measure their consumption footprint by submitting the consumption factor details of their household into the official footprint calculator at the library.

Practically: How would EoP SciCult law work?.

[5]  As the legal enforcement of EoP Scientific and Cultural [eop-scicultlaw] breeding/consumption international law occurs; more research will be done on refining the consumption footprint calculator, to be accurate for all eco-regions ; as part of the legal evidentiary truthseeking process. Each eco-region’s footprint will determine the size of a responsible freedom citizen in that eco-regions property ration [property-ration ]. For example: All nations will have a Consumption Footprint database, and there shall be an international consumption global footprint database. The national footprint database will include consumption footprint info for all the different eco-regions in that nation; adjusted to the global eco-footprint average property ration: 7.2 gha at a population of 1 billion, or 72 gha at population of 100 million as per suggested EoP Scientific: eco-footprint carrying capacity international law.

[6]  Example: Advocacy in violation of Consumption/Procreation Limits:
[7]  Jeremy heard Richard advocating on behalf of overconsumption/population. Jeremy informs Richard that advocating on behalf of overconsumption/population is illegal, and advises Richard to withdraw his advocacy on behalf of overconsumption/population and apologize. Richard (a) agrees that he was negligently advocating on behalf of overconsumption/population, and apologizes; or (b) disagrees that he was advocating on behalf of overconsumption/population; and so Jeremy and Richard go to civil court. The court finds Richard (i) innocent; Jeremy apologizes to Richard for his sincere but incorrect overconsumption/population interpretation; (ii) negligently guilty: Richard is required to go to ego & eco-literacy [ego-eco-literacy.tygae.org.za] consumption/procreation classes to learn about what kind of behaviours are overconsumption/procreation behaviours; (iii) intentionally guilty of consumption crimes of aggression [crimes-of-aggression.tygae.org.za]: the penalty for which is honourable death: Richard is allowed to remove his gene’s from the genepool by means of her preferred assisted suicide preference, by a date as decided by the sentencing judge. If not done, Richard is humanely – i.e. quick death – assassinated.

[8]  Example: Engaging in physical violation of Procreation Limits.
[9]  Measuring with the naked eye, the birth or not of a second child is easier than measuring whether an individuals consumption is above or below the EoP footprint, by walking past their house. Any individual convicted of negligent procreation of a second child crime of aggression will be sterilized, and the child will be put up for adoption. Any individual convicted of intentional procreation crime of aggression will be allowed to remove their gene’s from the genepool by means of their preferred assisted suicide preference, by a date as decided by the sentencing judge. If not done, they will be humanely – i.e. quick death – assassinated.

[10] Example: Engaging in physical violation of Consumption Limits:
[11] Julian is accused by Thomas of overconsumption in London, UK. Julian and Thomas go to the London library to input Julian’s consumption footprint data into the library’s consumption footprint calculator database. Julian and Thomas still disagree about the accuracy of their input data or the output results; and so they decide to go to London Footprint court. Julian and Thomas provide the Clerk of the Court with Julian consumption data; a Footprint police investigator checks it for accuracy; and the consumption data is submitted into the Court footprint calculator. Julian is found (a) innocent; Thomas apologizes in writing for his sincere but mistaken allegation and goes to a consumption footprint course to learn to accurately measure consumption footprint inputs; (b) negligently guilty: Julian apologizes in writing and goes to a consumption footprint course to learn to accurately measure consumption footprint inputs; (c) negligently and/or intentionally guilty: Julian disputes (i) the accuracy of one or more consumption factors measured in the Footprint calculator’s sustainability accuracy; and/or (ii) the finding of his deliberate intentional violation: so the matter goes to court for Julian to provide the court with his evidence in support of the IPAT calculators factors inaccuracy; and/or mitigation of deliberate intentional violation. If the Judge considers some of Julian’s evidence indicating that particular consumption factors for the eco-region are inaccurate to be reasonable; the Judge can make a recommendation to footprint database scientists to investigate Julian’s evidence; or if the Judge finds Julians evidence scientifically accurate, to order the footprint database scientists to correct the particular footprint factor error in the database. If Julian is found intentionally guilty of consumption crimes of aggression [crimes-of-aggression.tygae.org.za]: the penalty for which is honourable death: Julian is allowed to remove his gene’s from the genepool by means of her preferred assisted suicide preference, by a date as decided by the sentencing judge. If not done, Richard is humanely – i.e. quick death – assassinated.

[12] Example: Overconsumption/Procreation/Deception:
[13]       Similarly the crimes of aggression death penalty will be applicable for individuals in cases where: (i) if Jeremy, Richard, Julian or Thomas are found to have engaged in deliberate and/or malicious inaccurate data input statements to the Clerk; (ii) any Footprint Calculator scientists are found guilty of intentionally including inaccurate footprint data, or (iii) citizens found guilty of engaging in irregular methods to enter inaccurate footprint calculator data; (iv) citizens found guilty of breeding more than one child, or hiding information from the state about one child only breeding cheating.
