This is where environmentalism is headed:
Environmentalists ultimately want to wipe out the human race.
The Club of Rome's Depopulation Agenda. [Scroll down] The current fad of referring to looming extinction, as in the corporate-owned protest group Extinction Rebellion, has therefore a double entendre — the intended extinction is, of course, that of most of the human race. Environmentalism is used to justify moving people from rural areas into the city, and increased control over people's lives and property by local and central government. Above all environmentalism, and especially the global warming scare, are being used by the Club of Rome and its members to create acceptance for increasing powers for the corporate-owned United Nations bureaucracy and the corporate-owned NGOs affiliated to the United Nations.
NYT Keeps Readers In The Dark On Bernie Sanders' Population Control Comments. The New York Times is keeping readers in the dark about Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders' embrace of population control, including abortion, as a means of combating climate change. Sanders was asked during CNN's climate town hall on Wednesday whether he would support measures to curb population growth in order to protect the climate. The Vermont senator answered yes, and said using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion abroad, "especially in poor countries around the world," is something he "very, very strongly" supports.
Sanders under fire for remarks on population control. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has came under fire from conservatives on social media Thursday [9/5/2019] after he said he would be open to discussing population control as a means to combat climate change. The presidential candidate made the comments on Wednesday at a climate town hall on CNN after he was asked by an attendee about rising populations and how the planet "can not sustain this growth." The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic "poisonous for politicians, but it's crucial to face."
Kira Davis: Abortion Is Not a "Gift" To The Black Community. Last night was the CNN "Climate Town Hall" and it was interminable. I could only bring myself to tolerate a few candidates. I caught the end of Klobuchar and then watched a bloody-eyed Biden ramble through explaining his connections to Big Oil donors. The audience was there for Bernie and Warren and they were only there for Bernie and Warren. It was the usual climate talk, but what struck me the most was when Bernie Sanders responded to a question about population control. Without hesitation or any sense of self-awareness, Sanders offered up abortion in third world countries as a necessary and legitimate solution to overpopulation.
Bernie Sanders says abortion and birth control should be used to fight climate change. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been criticised after arguing population control should be part of tackling climate change. The Vermont senator told a TV debate that women "in poor countries" should have access to birth control.

Climate Crazies: CNN Pushes for Global Eugenics, Trillions in Spending, No Beef. [Scroll down] Arguably the most disturbing point during the climate hysteria came roughly halfway through the town hall with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I). After a commercial break, AC360 host Anderson Cooper went to an audience question from Martha Readyoff, who's "a teacher from New Milford, Connecticut." [...] Sanders got in touch with his inner communist and declared "the answer is yes." He went on to decry the Mexico City agreement as "totally absurd" because it "denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control..." It's worth noting that all the audience questions were pre-screened by CNN, so they knew that radical question was going to be part of their program and the narrative they were crafting.
Bernie Sanders Calls on Accelerating Abortions in Countries Populated by People of Color. In a bizarre, almost surreal CNN town hall event that repeatedly claimed hurricanes are all man-made, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders called for a global-scale eugenics program to reduce the human population by accelerating abortions in countries populated by people of color. Advocacy for all this came from Sanders' response to a pre-screened question from an audience member named Martha Readyoff, "a teacher from New Milford, Connecticut." Her question is heavily peppered with presuppositions, such as claiming abortion is "empowering women." The question was obviously intended to push Sanders toward a more radical left-wing position, and he took the bait.
Scientist Says Eating Human Flesh Will Save Planet From Climate Change. These global warming people are crazy. First, they want to take away our juicy steaks [...], but now, this crosses the line of decency. A Swedish scientist suggests that it may be necessary to turn to cannibalism and start eating human flesh to save the planet[.] And NO this story is not from The Onion. A conference about the food of the future called Gastro Summit being held in Stockholm Sweden featured a presentation by Magnus Söderlund claiming that we must get used to the idea of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combating the effects of climate change.
Bernie Sanders Reaches A New Level Of Depravity. I'm not sure calling those pushing climate hysteria a cult is enough anymore. We are at the full blown human sacrifice stage.[...] This is a level of depravity that you'd expect to see in 1930s Nazi Germany. It's sick, sick stuff that should be immediately disqualifying. The idea that people must be culled in order to "save the environment" is not a new one. It has its roots in eugenics and the ridiculous musings of Malthusian theory, which has been proven be absolute horse crap over the decades. The planet is not nearing peak population, nor resource use. There is simply no science to back up such craziness. But with climate change, that kind of garbage has seen a new rise because it's no longer about resources for these people. Now they claim it's about too many people emitting carbon. Climate change has went from just being overwrought insanity to a death cult.
Bernie Sanders says he supports worldwide funded abortions to combat climate change. Socialist presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders says if he's elected, he wants American taxpayers to pay for abortions in poor countries around the world to limit population growth. Why? Because Sanders claims mass abortions will limit climate change. Sanders made the assertions at the CNN townhall discussing the "climate crisis."
Sanders supports US taxpayer funding of third-world abortions to combat climate change. Sen. Bernie Sanders threw his support behind U.S. taxpayer-funded abortions in third-world countries when an audience member stressed the importance of curbing the human population because of climate change. "Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth," an audience member said. "I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it's crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?"

What (and Why) You Should Know About Anti-Natalism. A 27-year-old Indian man plans to sue his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. Raphael Samuel, whose claim is based on anti-natalism, told the BBC that it's wrong to bring children into the world, because they then have to put up with lifelong suffering. "There's no point to humanity. So many people are suffering," Samuel said. "If humanity is extinct, Earth and animals would be happier. They'll certainly be better off. Also no human will then suffer. Human existence is totally pointless." Anti-natalism (sometimes spelled antinatalism) is the view that it is immoral to bring new people into existence because doing so would be a harm to them.
The El Paso and Christchurch Shootings: The Ecofascist Connection. While Big Green currently downplays the issue, many enviro-organizations keep overpopulation phobias alive. Several million Europeans and Anglo-Americans belong to groups that contend Earth and/or their homelands are dangerously overpopulated.
Suicide of the West: Disney Chief Thinks Eliminating Children Is Good for Business. When Disney CEO Bob Iger threw in with the Hollywood radicals threatening to boycott Georgia for its new law outlawing aborting babies with a heartbeat, I was reminded of Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto's recurring theme in his original, great emailed daily newsletter, "Best of the Web Today," that he called "The Roe Effect." Taranto's thesis was that proportionally, Democrats were depriving themselves of future voters by promoting abortion as their sacrament, since the demographics of abortion would suggest that a majority of the aborted children were likely future Democrat voters. Of course, to make up for that deficit, Democrats today are desperate to import voters, by any means necessary.
With 9th baby, lawmaker, wife 'taking AOC's carbon footprint for ourselves'. Wisconsin Republican Rep. Sean Duffy and his wife, Fox contributor Rachel-Campos Duffy, are decidedly not taking liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's advice to zip it up and forgo having children because it might promote global warming. Instead, they have announced that they are having their ninth child.
The Case for Being Born. The Left's war on children is by no means restricted to the project of maximizing the scope of opportunity to surgically dismember them prior to birth, preferably at public expense. From radical feminists to radical environmentalists to academics and such mainstream figures such as Bill Nye, the word has come down: Children are not the future, but the future's enemies.
CNN Interviews Author of Debunked Population Doomsday Book. CNN interviewed the author of a debunked population doomsday book from 1968 during a segment on climate change Monday morning [5/6/2019]. "For a species that named itself homo sapiens, the wise man, we're being incredibly stupid," Paul Ehrlich, a professor at Stanford University, told CNN. In his book The Population Bomb, Ehrlich projected overpopulation would have dire implications and result in widespread famine, and pushed limiting population growth.
Radical Environmentalism and Transhumanism: Symptoms of the Same Disease. Two of contemporary society's most prominent anti-human utopian movements — radical environmentalism and materialistic transhumanism — appear on the verge of a bitter showdown. When you think about it, that makes sense. Both movements see themselves as the future's only hope. But their core purposes are incompatible. Radical environmentalists — "nature rights" activists, deep ecologists, Gaia theorists, and their fellow travelers that elevate nature above humanity — hijacked and refashioned traditional environmentalism into a mystical neo-earth religion that disdains homo Sapiens as a parasitical species aicting the earth. These radicals hope to thwart our thriving off the land in order to "save the planet."
Save the world, have more babies. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez takes her friends' worries seriously that it's immoral to have children because of climate change. The freshman congresswoman, however, had only insults for a Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, when he suggested that having more babies would be good for the planet. The gentlelady from New York is doubtlessly serious in her concern about climate change, and so we'd urge her and her party to drop the reflexive animosity and instead consider the argument Lee made, which has its roots in serious economics. If you believe we face serious threat from climate change and that mankind's current trajectory is a disastrous one, you shouldn't discourage people from having children. You should encourage them to be fruitful and multiply.
The Post-Child Democrats. "Is it okay to still have children?" Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wondered while making a salad. "It's basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question." It's easy to dismiss her, but the loudest proponent of a Green New Deal doesn't come up with original ideas, she just snatches extreme lefty ideas already being mainstreamed, and dumbs them down into a ridiculous and easily digestible form. Cortez hadn't come up with the idea of cracking down on air travel or cows. And she hadn't invented environmentalist proposals for human extinction on her own. [...] In 2015, black women in New York had over 25,000 abortions and only 23,116 births. New York's progressive values have made it a place where birth rates keep dropping and the death rate keeps rising.
Ocasio-Cortez: People Maybe Shouldn't Reproduce Due To Climate Change. Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested on Sunday night [2/24/2019] that people should consider not having children due to climate change because there is a "scientific consensus" that life will be hard for kids. "Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don't turn this ship around and so it's basically like, there's a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult," Ocasio-Cortez said while chopping up food in her kitchen during an Instagram live video.
Ocasio-Cortez: Only the Latest in a Long Line of 'You're Gonna Die' Con Men. [Paul] Ehrlich's best-selling The Population Bomb (essentially an ecological handbook) sold over two million copies within a few years of publication. The first sentence of the book is "The battle to feed all of humanity is over." [...] Ehrlich's solution was to hunker down and hope the terror he foretold would shock the world into a thinning of the herd — zero population growth through birth control and sterilization. Fifty years and a twofold increase in population later, the main problem with insufficient food is distribution. Speaking of shills, Ehrlich's book was broadly ignored until he appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, after which it became a bestseller.
Dem Candidate Deletes Tweet Touting Endorsement From Abortion Advocacy Group. Pennsylvania congressional candidate Susan Wild touted her support on Twitter from a group that has previously advocated population control before ultimately deleting her tweet and calling the matter "a distraction." Wild said she was "honored" to receive the endorsement of the Population Connection Action Fund, formerly Zero Population Growth (ZPG), which in the past condemned "irresponsible breeding" and called for excessively taxing large families. In the 1960s, the group said its goals were providing government funds for abortion and implementing heavy taxes on families with more than two children.
Who wants to aim for the Paris policy and starve 84 million more people? Fujimori et al estimate that if we aim for the 2°C Paris commitment as many as 84 million more people will be going hungry by 2050. Their solution, naturally, is to still aim for futile, global weather management targets, but to add another layer of socialist complexity and welfare. It's only money. If we feed corn to cars instead of people, and we limit land-use to carbon storage rather than food crops, how could the outcome be any other way? A million dead here, a million dead there, and pretty soon someone will be using their deaths to ask for for a grant, a tax, and a supranational committee.
Top Dem candidate gave millions to groups advocating for taxing families 'to the hilt' for 'irresponsible breeding'. Scott Wallace, a liberal millionaire candidate running for Congress in Pennsylvania, has given millions of dollars to so-called population control groups. Such groups have advocated for taxing parents "to the hilt" for having more than two children, calling it "irresponsible breeding," and said abortion is "a highly effective weapon" to combat overpopulation. Wallace, grandson of a former vice president who's running as a Democrat in Pennsylvania's 1st Congressional District against Republican incumbent Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, has used the Wallace Global Fund to give out nearly $7 million to population control groups since 1997.
Berkeley declares 'climate emergency' worse than World War II, demands 'humane' population control. The Berkeley City Council on Tuesday night [6/12/2018] declared what it called a "climate emergency" with more global significance than World War II, and demanded an immediate effort to "humanely stabilize population" and "reverse ecological overshoot." The resolution, which invokes the global conflict between the Axis and Allies, charges that Americans bear an "extraordinary responsibility to solve the crises" facing the environment. "[D]uring World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities," the resolution reads. A similar effort is necessary today to confront an even greater threat, according to the document.
Why the Environmental Left Is Secretly Petrified by Truly Renewable Energy. [Scroll down] For many on the left, growing human population sizes and their effect on the environmental is also a very serious concern. For instance, in his population control book Ten Billion, environmentalist Stephen Emmott wrote, "Only an idiot would deny that there is a limit to how many people our Earth can support. The question is, is it seven billion (our current population), 10 billion or 28 billion? I think we've already gone past it. Well past it." University of Hawaii at Manoa professor Camilo Mora wrote in a 2014 paper in the journal Ecology and Society, "What caught my interest on this whole issue is how humans are causing the destruction of ecosystems. At the end of the day ... we cannot stop hurting biodiversity if we don't stop reproducing so quickly." Liberal environmentalists believe that more people means more problems, and history has repeatedly proven that when electric power and technological advancements become readily available, population growth inevitably follows. During the twentieth century, Earth's population expanded by 400 percent, largely thanks to fossil fuel-powered societal improvements.
Prominent Science Fiction Author Calls for Depopulating Rural Areas. Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas — plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities.
Prominent Science Fiction Author Calls for Depopulating Rural Areas. Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson [...] recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities. [...] Robinson doesn't claim credit for this idea. "Here I'm referring to the plan EO Wilson has named Half Earth. His book of the same title is provocative in all the best ways, and I think it has been under-discussed because the central idea seems so extreme," he notes. Well, he's right. It's extreme.
Empty half the Earth of its humans. It's the only way to save the planet. Cities are part of the system we've invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That's why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing enough food to feed a settled crowd on a regular basis. Cities can't work without farms, nor without watersheds that provide their water. So as central as cities are to modern civilisation, they are only one aspect of a system.
Matt Damon's 'Downsizing' Movie Is More Tired Overpopulation Nonsense From The Usual Suspects. The movie "Downsizing" opened in December of 2017, eventually grossing about $40 million worldwide. The movie's main characters are shrunk to five inches tall, part of an effort to reduce the size of people, reduce their environmental footprint and save the planet. It's a fun fantasy, but "Downsizing" repeats tired fears of overpopulation that have wrongly plagued us for decades. News outlets gushed over the "Downsizing" concept. [...] The movie builds on fears of overpopulation, a foundation of the ideology of environmental sustainable development, which has been broadly accepted. Today, colleges and universities teach students that modern society is unsustainable. They claim we're using too much energy, emitting too much carbon dioxide, and exhausting our resources, in large part because of an uncontrolled rise in world population.
UN is Pushing Abortion on Africa, But This Pro-Life Scientist is Trying to Stop Them. What do you call it when Western elites attempt to foist abortion on native African cultures? At the United Nations, two women were squaring off: one, a Danish abortion advocate, the other, African scientist Uju Ekeocha. Their opinions expose the deep clash of civilizations across the globe: the culture of life versus the culture of death.
John Podesta's Cure for Climate Change: A Government in Charge of Your 'Family Planning'. John Podesta, former chief of staff for President Bill Clinton, chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, and the current chair of the Center for American Progress, recently wrote an article in The Washington Post rallying all good progressives to cure the scourge of climate change by controlling the earth's out-of-control population explosion. In the beginning of the article he told us that his goal is to "reduce emissions, raise living standards, and build a more sustainable future" ostensibly for the masses in developing nations. [...] He went on to comment on how we cannot overlook the importance of "reproductive health." He never actually defines "reproductive health" but according to Planned Parenthood and their supporters (such as Robert Reich in the following video) it includes contraceptives and abortion.
Chelsea Clinton Encourages Women To Have More Abortions To Help Global Warming, She Gets Crushed. Chelsea Clinton is growing up to be just like her mother, and obviously, that is not a compliment. She recently tweeted a Washington Post article written by John Podesta encouraging women to get abortions in order to get help with 'climate change.' [...] Of course, when she says 'women's reproductive health rights' she means 'abortion'. Although Democrats argue that abortion isn't a big deal, they are still squeamish saying the word directly.
We Need To Shame Couples Who Have Kids Because [of] Global Warming? Why is it that some of the hottest hot takes come from Canada? This week, we're delving into the very 'none of our business' category of married coupled having children. On HGTV, Fixer Upper couple Chip and Joanna Gaines announced that they're going to have a fifth child. Good for them. No, seriously — that's great news, but some whack jobs denounced the announcement, citing overpopulation concerns. Really? That's the troll bait that attracts these legions of losers. Folks, this is why Trump won. This busy-bodying from liberals, and make no mistake the trolls who cite population controls and global warming are most likely left wingers, have made their brand of politics insufferable. Josh Barro, a former writer for the New York Times, penned a column about what he called the hamburger problem, where progressives denigrate and lecture everyone else who's normal about why they should, for example, eat less meat for the sake of the planet.
Prince William, Whose Wife is Pregnant, is Telling People to Stop Having Children. Prince William recently was labeled a hypocrite for urging families to stop having children while his own wife is pregnant with their third. The British prince touted population control measures during a November speech for the conservation charity Tusk Trust. The Daily Mail reports the British royal family has advocated for population control throughout the past decade, claiming the world will face "monumental" problems if the human population continues to grow.
Having Children Is a Sin Against Liberalism. Liberalism starts from the assumption that we are bad. Americans are bad. White people are bad. Capitalists are bad. The First World is bad. You don't have to extend the mentality far to reach the logical conclusion that human beings are bad. If the human race is the problem, the solution is simple: don't have babies.
NBC: Stop Having Babies! It Causes Global Warming! NBC News 'Think' calls themselves on Twitter a home of 'fresh opinion, sharp analysis and powerful essays.' But there latest pro abortion "opinion" is hardly fresh, rather dull and hardly a powerful essay. You see, according to NBC, you need to stop having kids, because it's bad for global warming. Not only is it a scientific decision to stop having babies, but also a moral one.
Prince William warns that there are too many people in the world. Rapidly growing human populations risk having a "terrible impact" on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned. The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under "enormous pressure" and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour. His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated "voluntary family limitation" as a means of solving overpopulation, which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation.
New York Times: Spike the food supply with sterilization chemicals to cause global infertility and depopulation. A November 4, 1969 New York Times feature article authored by Gladwin Hill called for sterilization chemicals to be added to the food supply in order to achieve globalist goals of human depopulation. That article, entitled "A Sterility Drug in Food is Hinted" came with the byline, "Biologist Stresses Need to Curb Population Growth."
College Professor Argues in Favor of Murdering Newborns. Once you let a handful of black-robed oligarchs decree that it is your "right" to kill your baby, a slide down the slippery slope is inevitable.
University of Chicago Professor — It Should be Legal to Kill Newborns. Professor Jerry Coyne, a biologist at the University of Chicago, has convinced himself that murdering infants is morally fine because infants are too stupid to know they're being murdered. [...] He says that if a child in the womb looks like they will have a genetic condition, they ought to be murdered. This is an arbitrary decision, because what we considered to be life ending conditions 100 years ago are now treatable. This is an arbitrary decision, because sometimes genetic tests and fetal scans give inaccurate results.
Stop Enjoying Summer, Climate Activists Advise. The Merchants of Misery — a.k.a., climate scientists — are working overtime to shame you about all the pleasures you're enjoying this summer and how your selfish indulgences will cause the planet's demise. Grilling your favorite cheeseburger? Glutton! Packing up your brood for a drive to the lake house? Monster! Hoping vacation sex will result in a new baby to add to the family? Hedonist! Even mowing your lawn earns a tsk-tsk. A study from Sweden's Lund University published July 12 lists many of the sacrifices you should make to reduce your carbon footprint. Most of the media coverage — and criticism — focused on the study's recommendation to have one fewer child. Not only did the researchers consider more than three dozen scientific papers to compile their list, they also reviewed a handful of school textbooks and government publications to see whether the ruling class in Canada, Australia, the U.K., and the U.S. was appropriately indoctrinating the masses, particularly young people, about which "high-impact actions" will most effectively reverse global warming.
Bill Nye says skeptics will die off. Instead young gullibles grow up to be old skeptics. Poor Bill Nye — he's thinks somehow most people are as religious about climate change as he is, and will keep their naively unscientific beliefs about our ability to control the climate with power stations, wind mills and light bulbs, into their old age. Instead, the reality is Bill's biggest nightmare, skeptics are not dying out at all — there is a never ending source of skeptics, as young gullible believers grow up to be old and wise.
NPR & Bill Nye share 2-step climate change fix: You stop having kids, then die ASAP. How to stop climate change? Here it is in two creepy, Orwellian steps. Step one, from NPR: Your kids have become a real problem for eco-progressives, unless they work for NPR: [...] Step two from Bill Nye: Annoying older people and their skepticism they've developed after decades of exposure to sham artists need to kick the bucket.
Bill Nye: Climate science needs older generations to 'die' off. Bill Nye "the Science Guy" said Wednesday that significant action on climate change will be possible once the climate skeptics and deniers of older generations die off. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, the 61-year-old TV host was asked to comment on a recent Pew survey that revealed 58 percent of Republicans and right-leaning Independents believe higher education has a negative effect on the country, a number that spiked significantly during President Trump's rise to power.
Alleged 'science guy' Bill Nye: Older people need to die before climate change science can advance. In an interview published Wednesday at the Los Angeles Times, Bill Nye, the alleged "science guy," said that older people have to die off before so-called "climate change" science can advance. The reason, he said, is that older people are more resistant to the environmentalist propaganda. "It just sounds like people are scared. It just sounds like people are afraid. And the people who are afraid in general — with due respect, and I am now one of them — are older," he said. "Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It's generational. So we're just going to have to wait for those people to 'age out,' as they say. 'Age out' is a euphemism for 'die.' But it'll happen, I guarantee you — that'll happen."
Why Is the Left So Anti-Baby? My own personal experience is that the closer an American identifies with academia the less likely he or she is to have children. The "educated" have been anti-baby and pushing population control for at least a century. What is going on here? In part, of course, the push is to discourage other people from having children: eugenics and the "unfit." In part, it is that upper-class women prefer to outsource child-minding. So Birth Control was invented. And the educated classes decided to make abortion respectable. But it looks like the only people interested in birth control are the We, the educated, the evolved. Ordinary people just go on having babies like they always did, only now a lot more of the babies are surviving. How unfit of them.
Climate Alarmists: Abort Your 'Extra' Children. [A recent] NPR story highlights a 2016 paper by philosophers and bioethicists at Georgetown University and Johns Hopkins University, titled "Population Engineering and the Fight against Climate Change," which argues in favor of penalizing families for having children via a progressive tax that would increase with each child. In his new Netflix series, "Bill Nye Saves the World," the show's eponymous host asked a group of panelists, including one of the Georgetown professors, "Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?" The question from Nye, of course, is a rhetorical one. (Strikingly, unlike normal humans, none of the panelists found it creepy and disturbing that Nye said "extra kids.") Not content to let Nye hog all that creepiness for himself, feminist Gloria Steinem charged the "patriarchy" with causing climate change by forcing women not to have all those abortions they secretly want, leading to overpopulation and "climate deprivation." This unfortunately low number of abortions, according to Steinem, is "the fundamental cause of climate change."
Bill Nye, the Eugenics Guy. It is a short trip from deciding how many children people should be allowed to have to deciding who gets to have children at all. It bears a striking resemblance to China's one-child policy, which included sterilization and forced abortion. China's one-child policy, instituted by the Communist government in the late 1970s to stem rising population, compels couples in urban areas to have just one child and limits couples in rural areas to two children if the first child is a girl, as girls are seen as having lesser value than boys in some parts of the Asian nation.
Bill Nye, the Misuse of Science Guy: Why Science Doesn't Answer Public Policy Questions. Science was championed as the answer to our problems, with scientists such as Neil deGrasse Tyson and non-scientists like Bill Nye held up as messiahs for the noble cause. Now Nye's new Netflix show, Bill Nye Saves the World, has come along to rescue us and our policies from scientific ignorance. The underlying message behind the March for Science and Nye's show is that science can "solve" public policy problems if we would just let the scientists and technocrats take over. In one episode of his show, Nye pondered whether we should have policies that "penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world[,]" in order to combat climate change. (Will all the "extra kids" please stand up?) Population control movements have a long and sordid history, and have been endorsed by everyone from environmental catastrophists to anti-immigrationists to eugenicists.
Bill Nye's View of Humanity Is Repulsive. [Scroll down] The Nye segment, it turns out, was just a repetition of a 2016 NPR article on overpopulation featuring Travis Rieder. "Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?" asked Reider and others who were pondering the "ethics of procreation." The article is titled "Should We Be Having Kids in the Age of Climate Change?" In it, Rieder, a philosopher with the Berman Institute of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University, scaremongers a class of college students about The End of Days and the immorality of having children. NPR describes: "The room is quiet. No one fidgets. Later, a few students say they had no idea the situation was so bad." (It's not.) "Here's a provocative thought," Rieder says. "Maybe we should protect our kids by not having them."
Let's penalize people for having 'extra kids' — Bill Nye's outrageous idea. Just who gets to decide how many children is too many? And who determines which child is the extra child? I also wonder what Mr. Nye would consider to be an appropriate punishment? Additional taxes? Post-Birth abortions?
Bill Nye: Should Parents Be Penalized For Having 'Extra Kids?'. Comedian Bill Nye suggested that saving the world from climate change might entail punishing people in developed countries for having too many children. Nye asked one of the panelists on the Tuesday episode of his Netflix show "Bill Nye Saves The Earth" if it would be a good idea to have the government penalize having "extra kids." "Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?" Nye asked Travis Rieder, an academic for Berman Institute of Bioethics at Johns Hopkins University. "I do think we should at least consider it," said Rieder, who believes that limiting the size of families is paramount to fighting global warming.
Bill Nye The Eugenics Guy: Maybe We Should Penalize People With "Extra Kids". Katie wrote yesterday about Bill Nye's rather, um, abrupt departure from his "The Science Guy" persona from the 90s. Nye, the star of a new Netflix show called "Bill Nye Saves The World," also has some rather interesting thoughts on human population. Namely, he mused over the idea that people in the developed world should be "penalized" for having "extra kids" who will then potentially contribute to climate change. Nye dedicated the 13th and final episode of the first season of Bill Nye Saves The World to discussing overpopulation and how the world's population has grown rapidly since he was a child. After almost gleefully endorsing family planning and contraception services, Nye and a panel of experts sat down to discuss possible solutions to the issue.
Sierra Club Believes Abortion Helps the Environment. In today's progressivism, a chief material goal is to achieve an environment that is as close as possible to "natural" — which is often code for humanless, or at least devoid of certain of humankind's technological advances, such as cars, plastics, and our ability to harness energy from coal, natural gas, and oil. For [Michael] Brune and other progressive environmentalists, anything which gets us closer to that state of the environment has the capacity to be "moral." To the extent abortion reduces human impact on the planet's environment, it apparently is a moral good for the Sierra Club.
Environmentalists Hand Out Condoms to Protest Feared Trump-Era Overpopulation. An environmental group handed out 10,000 free "endangered species condoms" at New Year's Eve events and on college campuses nationwide to mark 2017 in a show of protest against President-elect Trump. The Center for Biological Diversity said the condom giveaway was meant to highlight overpopulation amid fears of Trump policies on contraception along with fears of what could happen to protected wildlife species under his administration.
People Who Hate Humanity. While liberals talk a lot about racism they ignore the far greater threat of their own Anti-Human Movement (AHM). The AHM is a way to group and describe those people, the vast majority of modern liberals, who object not to this or to that race but to humanity in general. They're the people who view other people as the problem. The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement — which believes mankind should go away in order to help the planet — is the extreme wing of the AHM. [...] To the AHM, people in general are a blight on the planet and civilization. That's why the AHM supports killing the unborn and denying medical treatment to the elderly. [...] Instead of seeing how we can make medical treatment less expensive, AHM members view the people as the problem and hence their go-to solution is paying for suicide cocktails rather than treatment.
Why Environmentalism Became Both a Religion and a Con Game. This notion that people are parasites really got started in the 1960's. A couple of highly promoted bad actors started this environmental heresy. The first was Rachel Carson with her hysterical polemic about DDT and its purported harm to birds and other wild life. Her ideas proved to be, at best, problematic, but millions of people have died as a consequence of the resulting international banning of DDT.
The Psychopolitics of Climate Change and Population Control. Despite the fact that man-made climate change continue to be proven false, the left drives on with its fear-driven insistence that human beings must dramatically change their behavior in order to save the planet. Everything revolves around the idea that man's consumption of natural resources is creating an unsustainable environment, and if we don't somehow curb our use of fossil fuels, we will destroy mother Earth and humanity itself. The left would have you believe that the only way to save our world is to give up your sovereignty and let a cabal of global elitists tell you how to live.
Climate change activists demand altering tax policy to cut birthrate. Climate change activists want to save the planet by cutting the birthrate. According to their logic, more people are bad because it means more CO2 emissions. The way to achieve this goal is by changing the tax code — a "carbon tax on kids."
Green Europe is Killing 40,000± People a Year. Europe's suicidal green energy policies are killing at least 4o,000 people a year. That's just the number estimated to have died in the winter of 2014 because they were unable to afford fuel bills driven artificially high by renewable energy tariffs. But the real death toll will certainly be much higher when you take into account the air pollution caused when Germany decided to abandon nuclear power after Fukushima and ramp up its coal-burning instead; and also when you consider the massive increase in diesel pollution — the result of EU-driven anti-CO2 policies — which may be responsible for as many as 500,000 deaths a year.
Top 10 Methods Used To Reduce The Human Population. "The Elite" with their infinite generational wealth feel obligated to proclaim themselves as protectors of the earth and "guardians" of human society. They take their access to resources to mean infinite knowledge and wisdom so of course they know best what is good for the rest of us. Some of these Elites consider everyone else mindless eaters flocking about aimlessly like [a] herd requiring thinning. After dividing the earth's resources given to us all free of cost among themselves they now proclaim that there is not enough to share with all of us and so they must reduce the population and control population growth for the good of us all.
Greenpeace Co-Founder: Climate Alarmists Would Kill Civilization. If left unchecked, climate alarmists at the United Nations and within the broader man-made global-warming movement would smash industrial civilization, killing untold millions in the process, Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore explained in Paris as the UN COP21 climate summit was taking place nearby. Fortunately for humanity, though, the radical agenda is predicated on discredited pseudo-science. [...] In an interview with The New American after his presentation debunking "ocean acidification" hysteria, Moore said the real agenda behind the UN climate summit was bringing down industrial civilization under the guise of "saving" the planet from humanity. If successful, he said, the lives of countless human beings would be lost as a result of energy famines. "They are saying that by destroying civilization, we will save the world," Dr. Moore explained, referring to climate alarmists gathered in Paris for the massive UN global-warming summit last month. "I don't buy it."
What is "Unsustainable"?
The Global Biodiversity Assessment directed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) calls for urgent action
to reverse the effects of unsustainable human activities on global biodiversity, including but not limited to the following...
China abandons one-child policy after 35 years. For months there has been speculation that Beijing was preparing to abandon the divisive family planning rule, which was introduced by Communist leaders in 1980 amid fears of a population boom. The government credits it with preventing 400 million births, but the human cost has been immense, with forced sterilisations and abortions, infanticide, and a dramatic gender imbalance that means millions of men will never find female partners.
Environmental activists turn up the rhetorical heat. What is the endgame of the contemporary green movement? It's a critical question since environmentalism arguably has become the leading ideological influence in both California government and within the Obama administration. In their public pronouncements, environmental activists have been adept at portraying the green movement as reasonable, science-based and even welcoming of economic growth, often citing the much-exaggerated promise of green jobs. The green movement's real agenda, however, is far more radical than generally presumed, and one that former Sierra Club President Adam Werbach said is defined by a form of "misanthropic nostalgia." This notion extends to an essential dislike for mankind and its creations.
Pope's climate push is 'raving nonsense' without population control, says top US scientist. One of America's leading scientists has dismissed as "raving nonsense" the pope's call for action on climate change — so long as the leader of the world's 1 billion Catholics rejects the need for population control. In a commentary in the journal Nature Climate Change, Paul Ehrlich, a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, argues that Pope Francis is simply wrong in trying to fight climate change without also addressing the additional strain on global resources from population rise. "That's raving nonsense," Ehrlich told the Guardian. "He is right on some things but he is just dead wrong on that."
Vatican Speaker on Climate Thinks There are 6 Billion Too Many of Us. One of the speakers slated for the Vatican rollout of the long-awaited Papal document on climate change once said the earth is overpopulated by at least 6 billion people. The teaching document, called an encyclical, is scheduled for release on June 18 at Vatican City. Perhaps with the exception of the 1968 encyclical on contraception, no Vatican document has been greeted with such anticipation.
Earth Day and the celebration of suffering. Earth Day brings each year a worldwide religious celebration at which large masses of people both right-thinking and affluent proclaim their devotion to Gaia and their love of humanity, while displaying their contempt for the lives and wellbeing of actual people, the poorest among them in particular. Should you find that judgment overly harsh, merely consider two musings from prominent organizers of the original Earth Day.
United Nations Climate Commissar: "We Should Do Everything Possible" to Reduce Human Population. Students of history will recall what happened when German social engineers decided that certain sectors of the population needed to be reduced in the name of their oligarchical collectivist ideology. But the oligarchical collectivists running the United Nations are different from Nazis. They don't want to reduce certain sectors of the human population. They want to reduce all of it. [...] To envirofascists of the type driving the global warming hoax, all humans are the enemy. From their point of view, the problem isn't fixed so long as there are any of us left.
The Climate-Change Solution No One Will Talk About. The equation seems fairly simple: The more the world's population rises, the greater the strain on dwindling resources and the greater the impact on the environment. The solution? Well, that's a little trickier to talk about. Public-health discussions will regularly include mentions of voluntary family planning as a way to reduce unwanted pregnancies and births. But, said Jason Bremner of the Population Reference Bureau, those policies can also pay dividends for the environment. "And yet the climate-change benefits of family planning have been largely absent from any climate-change or family-planning policy discussions," he said.
NAS study looked at global one child policy to save the environment. Global climate change. Sustainability. Erosion of the natural ecosystem. A strain on global natural resources. These are all vital concerns to those who would work as shepherds of the biosphere. And what is the biggest threat to all of these things? You can try to blame it on certain niche factors such as the use of fossil fuels, industrialization, deforestation and the like, but in the end it all comes down to one overarching problem. There are just too many [...] people. So what to do? Well, the National Academy of Sciences recently concluded a study which, in part, examined precisely this problem.
Professor Proclaims We Must "Terminate Industrial Civilization" Because of Global Warming. When it comes to the global warming hoax, neo-Marxists like Obama who want to use it as a pretext to jack taxes through the stratosphere and incrementally impose a Soviet-style command and control economy are the moderates. Extremes exist even further to the left. The place to find them is academia, where developing young minds are guided: [...]
Population Controllers Call Babies "Carbon Legacies," a Threat to the Environment. I guess it takes global warming hysteria to get the bioethics movement to criticize what is known in the trade as "artificial reproductive technologies" or ART. But now, in the ever more radical Journal of Medical Ethics, Cristina Richie, of Boston College's Department of Theology, argues that these technologies should be regulated to limit the number of children — called "carbon legacies," as a means of fighting climate change.
Exposing Climate Science Corruption. [Tim] Ball logically begins at the modern beginning of stifling environmental activism: Paul Erhlich's egregious and fallacious 1967 book, The Population Bomb. Ball documents how the 1972 Club of Rome report ridiculously preached population growth must be immediately stopped for our planet to avoid imminent and utter catastrophe. Ball then walks us through the 1992 United Nations Rio Conference led by Canadian tycoon Maurice Strong. This conference gave birth to Agenda 21, a bureaucratic justification that — among other things — tied population growth to other perceived evils such as global warming. Strong ultimately conceived of and implemented the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose purpose is to advance the notion that human activities are bringing about climate catastrophe.
How to challenge overpopulation propaganda. Overpopulation gurus tend to forget a crucial truth: One mouth brings with it two hands.
Greens Are Reds. The environmental movement has been hijacked by those who worship the created and not the creator. They regard industrialization as retrograde, resource extraction as evil, and human beings as net destroyers of the planet. I remember several years ago reading an article by a prominent environmentalist who said Earth's greatest problem is that mankind has no natural predator. In other words, it is a global curse that human beings sit atop the food chain.
The dubious apocalypse of global warming. [R]esearchers at the University of Maryland insist that global warming will destroy civilization. [...] There's a solution, of course. Higher taxes, increased regulation and more government supervision of everyone's lives, and other liberal nostrums. In an earlier presentation on "Population and Climate Change," the Maryland researchers find hope. "In order to avoid collapse, government policies are needed to stabilize population and stabilize industrial production per person." A powerful centralized government must take over the means of production and even reproduction. "Family planning is cost-effective," they write, "and should be a primary method to reduce [carbon-dioxide] emissions."
Federal Dietary Guideline Committee Focused on "Population Behavior Change'. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on Friday emphasized the need for the group to institute "population behavior change" in order to engineer healthier Americans. DGAC Chair Barbara Millen said the upcoming report would serve as the "foundation for public policy and food nutrition, physical activity, and health-related areas." The group will release new recommendations for federal food policy in the 2015 report. Millen said the "potential is vast" for their recommendations, which deal with everything from "sustainability" in the food supply to "carbon footprints," food deserts, alcohol consumption, and obesity "interventions."
Gore: Reduce African Women's Fertility to Limit Global Warming. Global warming activist Al Gore told the World Economic Forum "making fertility management ubiquitously available" is key to the future of civilization and efforts to limit global warming. Gore said such efforts to manage African women's fertility were important in his desire to reduce the growth of human population.
Al Gore once again suggests 'fertility management' to fight global warming. Former Vice President Al Gore raised eyebrows last week when he suggested that "fertility management" was the key to fighting global warming and promoting economic development in poor countries. Gore's comments drew criticism from free-marketeers who said his remarks amount to "eco-imperialism." "Gore's agenda for saving the world from global warming has always included population control," Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Liberal Professor Tells White Male Students To Commit Suicide To Benefit Society. Noel Ignatiev, a professor at Massachusetts College of Art, has for years advocated the total elimination of Caucasians. During his final lecture before retirement last Monday, he told his white male students "you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease."
Orwellian high school preaches population control to students. "It's up to you — no more than two." This dystopian command was posted by staff inside an Indiana high school as a warning to students that if they grow up to have large families, they are contributing to overpopulation — a pseudoscientific hoax pushed by some liberals. The message was posted on a banner above lockers at Northview High School in Brazil, Indiana.
Should We Live Shorter to Save the Planet? Humans are the enemy! A new study published in Ecology and Society claims that longer life expectancy for us is bad news for the planet.
'No children, happy to go extinct', tweets weatherman after grim climate-change report. A meteorologist who has covered weather for the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and is considering having a vasectomy. He also vowed to stop flying after the world's recent climate-change report made him cry.
David Attenborough: Don't Have Large Families. Human beings have stopped evolving and should be persuaded not to have large families, Sir David Attenborough has said. The TV naturalist, 87, said he was not optimistic about the future and "things are going to get worse".
Obama 'science diplomat' advocated for population control. [John] Holdren has previously stated that the United States and the rest of the world have too many people, a population bomb that technology can't defuse. "Dr. Holdren has a record only surpassed by his longtime collaborator Paul Ehrlich for spreading misinformation and making failed predictions," Myron Ebell, director of international energy and global warming policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Are Liberals Misanthropes? In the view of liberals, humans are the one species that is destroying the planet. Humans deplete "non-renewable" resources and do things that emit carbon dioxide. In their view, carbon dioxide (an absolutely essential building block of all life) is a pollutant that is destroying the planet. Environmentalists have often likened humanity to a virus or plague. "Population control" targets only humans. Why are liberals so uncaring for the unborn? Why are they such passionate defenders of "abortion rights"? Why do they care more about baby seals than they do about human fetuses?
Does Big Green care about people or nature? Back in 1974, the elite Club of Rome published "Mankind at the Turning Point" with its infamous motto, "The Earth has a cancer and the cancer is man." Today it has become routine for some well-funded Big Green group to block life-saving projects supposedly to save some allegedly threatened creature.
The Pressure is Building! Population control through abortion, euthanasia, Obama Care and homosexual marriage has ties to the elimination of personal and national sovereignty within Agenda 21.
The Darkness of Earth Hour. No amount of turning off the lights is enough. Eventually you come around to having to turn off the people. The Nazis were among the most enthusiastic environmentalists of their day, even the term 'Ecology' was coined by Ernst Haeckel, whose racial views served as precursors to Nazi eugenics. But while Nazi environmentalist believed that we were all animals, they insisted that some animals were better than others. Modern environmentalists believe that we are all worse than animals.
The Myth of Overpopulation. One of the frequent cries of many on the left is that the world is overpopulated. The latest hysterical outburst on this matter came from Sir David Attenborough, a recent patron of "The Optimum Population Trust." The 86-year-old Attenborough, who has a degree in natural sciences and is a former senior manager of the BBC, is a high priest among earth-worshiping liberals. Attenborough, famous mostly for his Life documentaries, declared, "We are a plague on the Earth. It's coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change; it's sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us[.]"
Environmentalism and Human Sacrifice. "Golden rice" contains vitamin A, making it by far the most effective and cheapest way to get vitamin A into Third World children. So who would oppose something that could save millions of children's lives and millions of other children from blindness? The answer is people who are more devoted to nature than to human life. And who might such people be? They are called environmentalists.
Environmentalist says humans are plague on Earth. David Attenborough, British broadcaster and environmentalist, is at it again, claiming that humans are a plague. [...] Of course, this is nothing new. Environmentalists have been saying similar things for decades. Prince Phillip, former president of the World Wildlife Fund, said "If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels."
David Attenborough: Humans are plague on Earth. Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough. The television presenter said that humans are threatening their own existence and that of other species by using up the world's resources. He said the only way to save the planet from famine and species extinction is to limit human population growth.
Ehrlich: 'Nobody has the Right to Have 12 Children — or Even Three'. Paul Ehrlich, the doomsday biologist who coined the term "The Population Bomb" more than 40 years ago with a book of the same name, says the world now faces "dangerous trends" of global climate change and overpopulation, which threaten our extinction. Reducing the number of people is still the answer to civilization's woes, Ehrlich and his wife Anne wrote in an article published Jan. 9 by London's Royal Society.Bill Maher: 'The Planet Is Too Crowded and We Need to Promote Death'. [Scroll down] "I am for the death penalty, although I do believe in more DNA testing," Maher continued. "My motto is, 'Let's kill the right people.' I'm pro-choice. I'm for assisted suicide. I'm for regular suicide. I'm for whatever gets the freeway moving. That's what I'm for." "It's too crowded," Maher continued. "So, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death."
Eco-Luddites New Target: Air Conditioning. The leftist critique of capitalism and all the improvements in the quality of life that it has brought remains what it has always been: the desire of intellectuals to dictate to the rest of humanity how they may live. Or even more to the point, how many of them may live at all.
Prominent Alarmist: Humans Do Not Deserve to Exist. Global warming alarmist David Appell posted an item on his blog yesterday showing just how anti-human and out-of-touch global warming alarmsts are. According to Appell, if people do not side with global warming alarmists in the global warming debate and take drastic action according to alarmist prescriptions, humans are too stupid to deserve to exist.
A critique of antihumanism:
People Matter. A ruling idea of the last two centuries has been materialism: the notion, as arch-materialist Daniel Dennett asserts, that "there is only one sort of stuff, namely matter — the physical stuff of physics, chemistry, and physiology — and the mind is somehow nothing but a physical phenomenon." One consequence of this belief has been the rise of antihumanism — the stripping from people of their transcendent value and a reduction of them to mere things in the world to be studied, understood, reshaped — and ultimately controlled. As Robert Zubrin shows in his valuable survey Merchants of Despair, antihumanism's reductive view of human nature has underpinned movements like eugenics, population control, and radical environmentalism, all of which have been eager to sacrifice human life and well-being to achieve their dubious utopias.
Overpopulation is a matter of perception.
Green and pleasant land. The UK has a population density of 255 per square kilometre, placing it at number 13 out of 89 territories with a population of more than 9 million (figures from the UN). Bangladesh is top of the list at 964 per km², while both the Netherlands and Rwanda come in at just over 400, India has 368 and Vietnam 255. Clearly, the stage of development is no guide to how crowded a country is. But there are other surprises. China, with the world's largest population, has only 140/km², considerably lower than Italy (200/km²).
The World Wildlife Fund Targets Humanity. The World Wildlife Fund, the posh flagship of the global environmentalist movement, has just released its biennial publication assessing "the state of the planet." Entitled "Living Planet Report 2012," the publication bemoans alleged catastrophic effects that humanity is inflicting upon the Earth, and calls for drastic curbs on civilization as a necessary corrective measure. According to the WWF, the human race is currently consuming at a rate that would be sustainable only if we had 1.5 Earths. Since we do not, overall human activity needs to be reduced by 33 percent to put mankind "in balance with the Earth's biocapacity."
Earth Day's dark side. The seminal scriptures of modern-day environmentalism were Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring," Paul R. Ehrlich's "Population Bomb" and the publications of the Club of Rome. While stylistically quite different, these books all served to rally the public around a core anti-human philosophy. As the Club of Rome put it, "The Earth has cancer, and the cancer is man." Such misanthropic views could only have the most horrific consequences. [...] Mr. Ehrlich also called for the United States to create a Bureau of Population and Environment, which would have the power to issue or deny permits to Americans to have children.
The Sebelius savings plan. There's something perverse about a government $15.5 trillion in the red espousing a strategy to "save money" by discouraging the birth of human beings. That's what Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius is advocating through the implementation of President Obama's contraception mandate.
Global warmists: Let's get small. Our moral and intellectual superiors who bitterly cling to their religion of global warming caused only by man have come up with a new plan to make the world a better place with fewer people. Make the people smaller.
The Liberal Quest for Population Control. In addition to promoting contraception, the United States Preventative Services Task Force has also indicated that annual preventive breast cancer screening should be considered a luxury. Thus, without yearly mammograms, if breast cancer isn't detected until it's too late, women on birth control pills may also contribute to the left's initiative to foster fewer human beings. From the looks of things, it certainly appears as if the Obamacare concept of prevention seems obsessed with curtailing the population. And while birth control is not exactly a 'death-panel' per se, it could be described as a life-preventative.
Activists: Birth control can fight global warming. During a discussion series on Monday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., speaker and activist Kavita Ramdas argued that contraceptives should be part of a strategy to save the planet, calling lower birth rates a "common sense" part of a climate-change reduction strategy.
Dying to be Green. When Obama's energy secretary communicates that he has no interest in lowering the price of gasoline, instead focusing on energy efficiency and clean energy, he's following the same inhumane line which has made it so expensive to drive a car or heat a home in Europe. ... Stalin killed millions to industrialize the Soviet Union. The New Left will kill millions to deindustrialize the West.
Effect of Environmentalists Crying Wolf Over Ozone Thinning Appear. Adoption of environmentalism for political and religious agenda falsely identifies good and evil. Worst is the claim that humans are evil and don't belong on the planet. Anti-humanity is a fundamental theme typified by the Club of Rome's 1974 comment that "The Earth has cancer and the cancer is man."
Drinking Global Warming Propaganda. The Club of Rome, an environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations, shocked me with their blatantly false and outrageous statement that validated how the hard left thinks and acts, "The common enemy of humanity is man. In search of a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
Denver Post: Aborting Our Children Will Save the Planet. Written by Dottie Lamm, former first lady of Colorado and a member of the U.S. delegation to the U.N. Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994, the op-ed sounds as though it was torn directly from eugenicist Margaret Sanger's playbook, bemoaning the fact that some women continue to have more than two children apiece.
Daily Kos Hates Humans: 'We Could Really Use a Global Superplague'. Jon Stafford bluntly wrote on Wednesday night [8/10/2011] that "I often describe myself as 'Not Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion. ...' This will undoubtedly be met with accusations of callousness, but we could really use is a global superplague. The Black Death may have been horrible, but without it there would never have been a Renaissance."
Gore promoting fewer children to curb pollution. In an appearance Monday [6/20/2011] in New York City, former Vice President Al Gore, prominently known for his climate change activism, took on the subject of population size and the role of society in controlling it to reduce pollution. He offered some ideas about what might be done for females in the name of stabilizing population growth.
Al Gore, father of 4, wants to fight global warming with population control. Anyone want to guess what Al Gore is talking about here? Here, let me help. The subject is population control. The buzzwords are choice and women's empowerment. Seems obvious.
Al Gore: Sterilize Women Under 25. Al Gore wants to combat global warming by controlling the population — sterilizing women. Former Vice President Al Gore is venturing into a touchy topic, presenting his new solution to combat the buildup of greenhouse gases warming the planet.
Sterilizing Those Pesky Humans: Earth Day with Paul Ehrlich. Every April 22 is Earth Day. As one who studies Soviet Russia, I can't help but notice that the day coincides with the birthday of Vladimir Lenin. The inaugural Earth Day occurred April 22, 1970, no less than Lenin's birth centennial. This is most ironic. Lenin is a decaying symbol of central planning, which, regrettably, is the ideological preference of many of those filling the streets on Earth Day. ... Lenin had no respect for life. He declared certain people "harmful insects." In Lenin's deadly worldview, pesky humans were not precious, special, unrepeatable; they were disposable.
People Are a Big Problem to Environmentalists. The Carnegie Institution's Department of Global Ecology believes it has discovered in the annals of history a champion — though inadvertent — of environmentalism. ... Julia Pongratz, who was in charge of the institute's research project, claims that [Genghis] Khan — by his mass murder of up to 40 million people, inadvertently caused a beneficial effect on other life on the planet.
Outwitting Lethal Government Policies. [Scroll down] Environmentalists are constantly coming up with new efforts to assist, amuse, and entertain the snail darters, minnow smelts, and polar bears, usually at the expense of humanity as a whole. The Greens contend that the major driver of environmental degradation is simply too many humans. They view all means of lowering these numbers with strong approval. Keep an eye out and never forget: however innocent a Green policy may look, it's always aimed at you.
Go Green, Kill People! It may sound like a radical statement (and not the Jeff Spiccoli kind of "radical"), but the more you examine modern environmentalism and the dorks spearheading the "green" movement, it becomes increasingly impossible to deny its diametric opposition to a pro-human worldview.
Fight Global Warming! Get an abortion! Using abortion for population control is inhuman. But the bottom line is that Great Britain is moving toward a China-type policy where the government intrudes into the most personal decisions made by families; how many children is right for them. Our green friend also wants to shift health monies from curing illnesses to aborting babies.
Why do Green zealots think they can dictate how many children we are allowed to have? So the deepest green of them all turns out to be not so much a friend of the earth as an enemy of the human race. Jonathon Porritt, the Government's 'green' adviser, has said that couples who have more than two children are being 'irresponsible' by creating an unbearable burden on the environment. Curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must therefore be at the heart of policies to fight man-made global warming.
Who is speaking for the plants? David Graber, a research biologist with the National park Service said, "Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet." "Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along." Getting rid of everyone permanently solves the problem — David Foreman former chief lobbyist for the Wilderness Society says the optimum number is zero. Ingrid Newkirk of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said, "Mankind is a cancer; we're the biggest blight on the face of the earth."
Now we can see where the environmental movement is headed. Encouraging families to have fewer children seems innocuous, perhaps thoughtful. It's easy to dismiss those who support such measures as harmless busybodies, not ill-willed environmentalists. Beware, however, of apparent banality. Groups such as England's Optimum Population Trust have to be subtle. While a planet with few people — or perhaps no people — is their ideal, they know they can't say that.

Enviro Mentalists Call For Culling Of Human Population. A disturbing move is afoot by several "green" groups to associate climate change with over population and suggest that the solution is to implement depopulation policies and punishments for those who flout them. The London Times reports today that a report to be published by green think tank the Optimum Population Trust says that children are 'bad for planet and 'having large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags.
The Warm Turns. In a speech at Harvard last November, Harvard physicist John Holden, President-elect Obama's choice to be his science adviser as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, presented a "top 10" list of warming solutions. Topping the list was "limiting population," as if man was a plague upon the earth. This is a major tenet of green dogma that bemoans the fact that the pestilence called mankind comes with cars, factories and overconsumption of fossil fuels and other resources.
Doctors: Third babies are the same as patio heaters. A pair of doctors have said that British parents should have fewer children, because kids cause carbon emissions and climate change. The two medics suggest that choosing to have a third child is the same as buying a patio heater or driving a gas-guzzling car, and that GPs should advise their patients against it.
Global Warming Game Tells Children They Should Die. Are global warming alarmists encouraging children to commit suicide because their carbon footprints supposedly are harming the planet? It certainly appears so in a children's game concocted by the state-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Science Department, available online. The game is called Planet Slayer. Using it, children can calculate their carbon footprint — how much impact their carbon emissions allegedly have on global warming.
The Anti-Human Agenda: Some environmentalists think if we could just get rid of all the people on the planet it would be a great place to live. Generally over-population is a major part of the environmentalists' argument that humans are causing all the problems, including climate change.
Global Warming: The Left's Latest War on the Family. Procreation is killing the planet, and traditional religion is to blame, Global-Warming cultists insist. First the industrial revolution had to go. Then it was to the wall with oil company executives, those malignant Carbon Interests. Next, SUVs were declared enemies of the planet. Now, the left's attention has shifted back to its perennial targets — large families and "patriarchal" religion.
'Saving' the planet may deny heat, cooling for the frail. Fact: Cold, not heat, is what really kills people, as we see now in Britain. Fact: A warming world would save countless lives, not cost them. And fact: Those who died last week were in less danger from global warming than from the deadly incompetence of green governments trying to "stop" it.
Psychology Today Blog: Ban Having Children for 5 Years. A bestselling author has called octuplets-mother Nadya Sulamen a 'murderer' and warns of overpopulation saying, "we need to lose 4.4 billion people." ... Steven Kotler has declared that responsible adults should stop having children in order to save the planet. Those who are having kids, are being selfish and stealing from the future, the rest of humanity, and "every living thing on the earth," he wrote. Have too many kids and you should go to jail.
Global Warming Alarmists Propose Limiting Population ... to the Point of Extinction. In a statistical study entitled "Reproduction and the Carbon Legacies of Individuals," published in Global Environmental Change by Murtaugh and Shlax of Oregon State University, ... the authors propose that the potential savings from reduced reproduction rates among humans are some 20 times more effective than the savings wrought by life style changes. It is clear that the authors follow the Liberal mantra of the ends justify the means. If we can reduce carbon emissions by reducing the number of children, then we should do it, they gloat. It appears that carbon reductions trump even "life" itself.
UK population must fall to 30m, says Porritt. Jonathon Porritt, one of Gordon Brown's leading green advisers, is to warn that Britain must drastically reduce its population if it is to build a sustainable society. Porritt's call will come at this week's annual conference of the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), of which he is patron. The trust will release research suggesting UK population must be cut to 30m if the country wants to feed itself sustainably.
Earth population 'exceeds limits'. There are already too many people living on Planet Earth, according to one of most influential science advisors in the US government. Nina Fedoroff told the BBC One Planet programme that humans had exceeded the Earth's "limits of sustainability". Dr Fedoroff has been the science and technology advisor to the US secretary of state since 2007, initially working with Condoleezza Rice.
Ban Humans to Lower Carbon Emissions? According to California Congressman Tom McClintock, the world's six billion humans breathe out 2.4 billion tons of carbon dioxide each year. His state has a goal of reducing emissions by 170 million tons of carbon dioxide to meet legislative requirements. Simple mathematics shows if we can just "do away" with 425 million of Earth's inhabitants, we can help Governor Schwarzenegger meet his bogie.
David Attenborough argues the planet cannot handle more people. Sir David Attenborough has become a patron of an organisation that campaigns to limit the number of people in the world, arguing that the growth in global population is frightening. The television presenter and naturalist said the increase in population was having devastating effects on ecology, pollution and food production.
Depopulate and die of boredom. It must take a rather active imagination to look at a map of Australia and think that it is too full. Last week Sandra Kanck, the national president of the environmental group Sustainable Population Australia, urged the country to cut down its population from 21 million souls to just 7 million. To do so, she recommended we adopt a one-child policy, completely eliminating middle-child syndrome and saving the planet in the process.
The Population Bum. A member of Britain's government says couples should be limited to two children to save the Earth from global warming. It's discouraging that such muddle-headed people are in positions of power.
Save the Planet: Have Fewer Kids. A study by statisticians at Oregon State University concluded that in the United States, the carbon legacy and greenhouse gas impact of an extra child is almost 20 times more important than some of the other environment-friendly practices people might employ during their entire lives — things like driving a high mileage car, recycling, or using energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs.
Obama's Science Czar: Traditional family is obsolete, punish large families. President Obama's Science Czar, John Holdren, took a controversial and amoral approach to the science of population by recommending mass compulsory sterilization and even forced abortion (and/or forced marriages) under certain circumstances. His 1977 tome, Ecoscience, which he co-authored with Paul and Anne Ehrlich, also displays a revealing disregard for the institution of the traditional human family.
'Contraception cheapest way to combat climate change'. Contraception is almost five times cheaper as a means of preventing climate change than conventional green technologies, according to research by the London School of Economics.
Saving the Earth by Hating Humanity. One singular fact stands out in all Green propaganda and permeates all the legislation and other programs they sponsor. It is a contempt and disdain for the Earth's human population. The leaders of the movement hate humanity. Obsessed with population growth, anything that can reduce it — disease, poverty, famine, or lack of energy is pursued as part of the Green agenda.
Environmentalism vs. Human Life: Although most environmentalists are emphatic in their professions of how deeply they care about every little earthworm and gnat on the planet, environmentalism is, at its core, the hatred of human life.
Birth Control Seen As Way to Combat Climate Change. Giving contraceptives to people in developing countries could help fight climate change by slowing population growth, experts said Friday [9/18/2009].
An idea like this must be implemented gradually. Step one:
Cap-And-Trade For Babies? An environmental writer mainstreams an idea floating around the green fringe — save the earth by population control and give carbon credits to one-child families. Are we threatened by the patter of little carbon footprints?
Carbon Credits for One-Child Couples? Andrew Revkin, who reports on environmental issues for The New York Times, floated an idea last week for combating global warming: Give carbon credits to couples that limit themselves to having one child. Revkin later told CNSNews.com that he was not endorsing the idea, just trying to provoke some thinking on the topic.
The Editor says...
We will fix the climate all right... let's kill a ton of people. The bottom line behind the climate change leftists trying to save the world: people are in the way. People cause carbon emissions so people must die. Let us start with hundreds of millions of abortions worldwide.
The People Problem. Calls for forced population control as a means to conquer global warming are in the news this week. We knew the Copenhagen climate conference would keep drawing out the cranks. 'Humans are overpopulating the world," Diane Francis, a staff writer for Canada's National Post, said in Tuesday's [12/8/2009] edition.
Enviro-Marxists discover the real scourge of the planet: human beings. Diane Francis writes in the Financial Post: "The 'inconvenient truth' overhanging the UN's Copenhagen conference is not that the climate is warming or cooling, but that humans are overpopulating the world. A planetary law, such as China's one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days." What a great idea! Of course, there are a few details to work out, which Ms. Francis doesn't address, most specifically, how it would be implemented and enforced. I don't think she wants to mention those icky forced abortions that occur in China, as late as the 9th month of pregnancy.
UN: Human Life Threatens Climate!. "Too Many Births Said to Threaten the Climate" read the headline in the November 19 edition of the French daily Le Monde. The headline refers to the new "State of World Population 2009" report published by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The document is called a "report," but in light of the unabashed and unrelenting advocacy of which it consists, it might be better described as a "pamphlet."
In Pursuit of Death. The warped premise of radical environmentalism is clear: The earth is pure, and we are the pollutant. Devising plans to dramatically reduce earth's population is just another day's work for these modern Cassandras. There is a nihilist subcurrent bubbling to the surface of mainstream environmentalism, and it is being given a global imprimatur in Copenhagen.
Environmentalism and Animal Rights: "[O]bserve that in all the propaganda of the ecologists — amidst all their appeals to nature and pleas for "harmony with nature" — there is no discussion of man's needs and the requirements of his survival. Man is treated as if he were an unnatural phenomenon.
Environmentalists: Give Trees the Right to Sue. What if a trimmed tree could sue as an amputee or a shucked clam could claim wrongful eviction? In an effort to ban everything from drilling oil to incinerating garbage, about a dozen communities across the country have adopted ordinances that give nature legal standing and water down the rights of businesses.
Climate Change Debate Over? It's Just Begun! Along with stiff carbon taxes and straight-jacket regulations comes, inevitably, population control. At Copenhagen, China's Peggy Liu — chair of the Joint U.S.-China Collaboration on Clean Energy — bragged about Beijing's brutal one-child policy. That policy, said this winner of Time Magazine's "Hero of the Environment" award, "reduces energy demand and is arguably the most effective way the country can mitigate climate change."
Animal Wrongs. [Scroll down] The West is founded on a Judeo-Christian moral ethic, which holds that human welfare is central and that humans and animals are not of equal worth. The animal rights movement tears at the heart of that. It's a movement that is not based on rationality; there is a very strong anti-human element. For animal rightists, being human is not special. They don't believe in human exceptionalism. They see us as an evil species, as killers and the causers of suffering. The misanthrope is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
The True Meaning of 'Go Green': To "go green" is a metaphor for a cause, but the cause is not the one you might think it is. Green is not about saving energy. It is not about conservation or living more efficiently by recycling. It's not about electric cars or hydrogen power or solar panels. Green is not about you. Green is about saving nature. From you.
Progressives Against Progress. [Scroll down] Back in the early 1970s, it was overpopulation that was about to destroy the Earth. In his 1968 book The Population Bomb, Paul Ehrlich, who has been involved in all three waves, warned that "the battle to feed all of humanity is over" on our crowded planet. He predicted mass starvation and called for compulsory sterilization to curb population growth, even comparing unplanned births with cancer: "A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people." An advocate of abortion on demand, Ehrlich wanted to ban photos of large, happy families from newspapers and magazines, and he called for new, heavy taxes on baby carriages and the like.
Discovery Gunman: The Green Frankenstein. The radical green movement is rapidly trying to distance itself from Discovery Channel gunman James J. Lee. ... Wednesday afternoon [9/1/2010], an armed Lee walked into the offices of the Discovery Channel, took hostages and demanded that the TV network alter its programming to suit his demands as laid out in an 11-point manifesto. The incident ended when police shot him dead. Lee called for saving the Earth by getting rid of people, whom he referred to as "filth," and stopping global warming. He called for TV programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility, and exposing civilization's "disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed." "All human procreation and farming must cease," he raved, because "the planet does not need humans."
James Lee is Al Gore is Prince Charles is the Unabomber. Al Gore's Church of Climatism has claimed a new glorious martyr. His name is James Lee — the Discovery channel attempted eco-suicide-bomber — and if he'd had his way he wouldn't have been the only one who ended up in the great recycling bin in the sky. That's because, as far as the late James Lee was concerned, humans like the innocent Discovery channel employees he held hostage are the scum of the earth. Just read some of the manifesto he posted on the internet and see for yourself.
Who is responsible for Warmabomber's violent agenda? Filthy. Parasites. Disgusting, overbreeding candidates for sterilization and extermination. Possessed of false morals and a "breeding culture." Hitler talking about the Jews? Nope. This is Discovery Channel hostage-taker James Lee talking about ... human beings. Compared to Lee, Hitler was a piker, philosophically: Der Fuehrer only wanted to kill those he considered "subhuman." Lee considered all humans to be subhuman.
Eco-Terror's Inspiration. Eco-terrorist James Jay Lee last week executed a dangerous hostage plot inside the headquarters of the Discovery Channel. Armed with what appeared to be pipe bombs and a cheap pistol, Lee claimed to have been "awakened" by Al Gore's film, "An Inconvenient Truth". Lee regarded humans as the "most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around." His desire was to force the Discovery Channel to fill its programming schedule with "solutions to save the planet."
Taking it one step further...
Nutty Professor Pleads for Extinction of All Carnivorous Animals. If a certain nutty professor has his way, all lions, dolphins, as well as all other carnivorous animals on this planet would be selected for controlled extinction for the "high crime" of eating meat and causing suffering in other animals.
Ted Turner urges global one-child policy to save planet. Climate change and population control can make for a politically explosive mix, as media mogul Ted Turner demonstrated Sunday [12/5/2010] when he urged world leaders to institute a global one-child policy to save the Earth's environment.
Ted Turner's Craziest Scheme Yet: Cap and Trade... With Children. Media mogul Ted Turner, who founded cable networks CNN and TBS, wants a global child-bearing "cap and trade" system to combat climate change. He has thought up a bizarre take on China's one-child policy: set a strict one-child limit, and let poor people sell credits for children they don't have!
Go Green, Kill People! It may sound like a radical statement (and not the Jeff Spiccoli kind of "radical"), but the more you examine modern environmentalism and the dorks spearheading the "green" movement, it becomes increasingly impossible to deny its diametric opposition to a pro-human worldview.
It's a Wonderful Life, So Far. The single-family home with the white picket fence, two cars in the garage, and a couple kids in the backyard has everything wrong with it, according to some environmentalists. The home is made completely or in part of wood … but logging is a bad thing. That little yard in a small suburban or rural community contributes to "urban sprawl." When those two cars leave the garage for work or the grocery store or to take the kids to school, they burn unacceptable quantities of fossil fuels traveling paved roads which, in all too many cases, prevent animals from migrating (apparently only chickens are able to cross the road). Oh, those two kids? They are a problem, too. Overpopulation, you know. Enjoy America while you can.
Environmentalists Excluding People from Parks: Human enjoyment of the parks — sightseeing, golfing, hiking, skiing, biking, canoeing, camping — is being systematically sacrificed to environmentalist ideology. As long people believe that environmentalism is compatible with human enjoyment of nature (or anything), environmentalists will continue to prevent people from enjoying the parks. What makes these environmentalists tick?
Africans Starve Rather than Accept Bounty of GM Corn: I grow poison on my farm, feed it to my family, and sell it to unsuspecting consumers in the U.S. and around the world. That's what the president of Zambia seems to think. As 3 million people in his country face starvation, Levy Mwanawasa has let some 15 million metric tons of donated corn sit untouched in storage because some of it is genetically modified.
Environmentalist Mythology Killing Us Softly: One would have to conclude, given the facts, that environmentalists are either insane or intent upon eradicating every human being from the face of the planet.
"Human beings, as a species,
