LETTER: Time to get tough on Chinese food exports

CHINA used to be the only environmentally responsible nation doing something about world human overpopulation.

Now it's succumbed to religious pressure and dropped its one child policy.

The Chinese are again breeding at a fast rate.

Australia, as a major supplier of food to the world, has a responsibility to stop the environmentally destructive habit of humans to breed excessively.

We should enact a policy of only selling food to nations who have strict, working, human population reduction policies in place.

Of course, it would be hypocritical of us to expect the rest of the world to reduce it's populations while we breed up like rabbits, therefore we must immediately close our borders and introduce restrictions on breeding.

We must lead by example.

But for countries led by ignorance we must give them the choice; reduce human population or starve.
