David De Mayer Rothschild's Global Population Reduction Ideology

Recently Popular Mechanics published an interesting article about David Mayer Rothschild building a boat he calls the plastiki. In the article Rothschild explains that he is building a 60-foot sailboat out of plastic bottles he plans to sail from San Francisco to Sydney. His intent is to raise awareness of the plastic pollution in the oceans. It seems to me that David Mayer Rothschild, head of Adventure Ecology, has been very environmentally aware and conservative, attempting to save the world from pollution.
