Bindi Irwin: population warrior
4BC Drive: The passionate Wildlife Warrior, Bindi Irwin, joins Gary Hardgrave on over-population and her essay that has been rejected by the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Listen now and join the conversation.
Bindi's essay is honestly amazing and straight to the point on the over-population on human species statement, it is much better then the edited one. For the rest of you disagreeing to her essay and believe it should be edited, shame on you all. Everyone has the right to have their freedom of speech, her voice is allowed to be heard. She has her own intelligent mind to use.Kim Monday 8 April, 2013 - 7:36 PM
Greatings everyone, I have always been intrested in the environment and would like to thank bindies efferts to try to influence the government to bring out overpopulation laws to protect the environment. Unfortunantly though that goes against the multi national corporations wishes to do with macking monster profits for doing things like logging the amazon rainforest. But if you could put it on facebook and convince as many average people as possible that might change the worlds prospective idea on it.Maybe start an online pettition ive heard that they sometimes achave new environmental and human rights laws.jane Saturday 16 February, 2013 - 4:34 PM
We're not big fans of the Irwin offerings, but Bindi's original essay nails it.
Pity that Clinton needed it watered down, but then politicians worldwide are so often in the pockets of industries that put profit first, and that's not just here in Australia.
Things like terminal global overpopulation come a distant second to being 'in power'. -sigh-
Well done, Bindi. Nice one.

Please just go away, Bindi Irwin. Your "essay" reads more like a 3-page advertisement for your 'Wildlife Warriors' group than anything else. Good on you Hillary for trying to make it readable.Adam Freeman Sunday 27 January, 2013 - 2:23 PM
Congratulations on a thoughtful and timely essay Bindi on a vitally important subject, keep true to your beliefs young lady, as the world needs young leaders like you.
To those knockers I say, it's interesting to note that you are predominantely of the male gender. In my experience, as a 50 year old female, men have never been keen on taking responsibility for their own fertility, it's always been seen as a woman's problem. Be part of the solution don't perpetuate the problem gents. We could scrap the socially irresponsible public policy of the Baby Bonus for a start, Prime Minister.Michelle Wellard Saturday 26 January, 2013 - 10:48 AM
Its a sad indictment on society when we become so devoid of courage that we have to rely on children to tell the simple truth. You are entirely correct Bindi and I hope you are not dissuaded from the most important cause of overpopulation. It appears you are like your father so you will not likely be easily deterred. You may or may not be aware that there are two main reasons why populations not only continue to increase but that increase is actively driven and promoted by governments. The first is that nations seek military and financial superiority. The second is the banking system in every capitalist democracy. The banks are allowed to lend far more money than they actually have. This system works as long as the banks are not required to produce the capital they have made available through loans or the savings held by them all at once. The system must be furnished with ever more capital or it will collapse. The banking system as it stands also accelerates the concentration of wealth offshore. This is why you can see in the article below that local governments are charging citizens for the use of public facilities. Governments have become increasingly desperate and can no longer afford to provide the services the public has had for centuries. The entire system is fast approaching a point of complete collapse. The more the population swells the more acute the problem becomes. America is probably the last nation I would be petitioning for a solution because they are the most desperate and the most dishonest. No disrespect towards your mum intended. I would take a swipe at the wit of Michael for attacking the honest words of a child but it is too dim for me to see.Well Done Bindi Friday 25 January, 2013 - 5:29 PM
