Two Kids Max – Green Lobby Doles Out Death Card


black_baby

For decades the environmental lobby has been holding a particular nuclear bombshell close to its vest – its agenda to eliminate humanity.
They rarely come out and say it. Instead they sing and dance around platitudes like:
– Humans are causing global warming.
– Humans need to cut back on consumption.
– Humans need to drive cars with better gas mileage.

But anyone with an ounce of experience in didactic reasoning knows that arguments presented by anti-human environmentalists lead to only one conclusion:
The Earth is being destroyed by consumption.
Humans consume the most.
Therefore, humans must be destroyed to save Earth.

Environmentalists, whether consciously or unconsciously, all prescribe to this theory. They have to. Otherwise their “movement,” has no meaning.
Occasionally they let the true cat out of bag, but nothing as blatant as the chair of Britain’s Sustainability Commission did in an article in a Times’ article saying that two children should be the maximum for all families to avoid more environmental harm on Earth.
In the article, Jonathon Porritt “says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming.”
Wow, really. So killing babies must be at the heart of any policy to protect the earth?
There are those who have fallen for the population control argument and it seems logical. Too many people. Not enough resources. Bad for every one.
However, there’s just one flaw to that argument. It’s the definition of what you mean by resources. There is enough food, land and air for every living being on this planet. There may be a challenge of water but there doesn’t have to be with desalination technology.
I reject the premise that resources are scarce. They aren’t scarce. God supplies more than enough. Resources  just aren’t equally distributed. And I believe in the power of innovation and technology to help even the resources playing field.
I worked with a Christian businessman who engineered a way to extract enough moisture from the atmosphere to provide clean water to communities drowning in drought. He didn’t subscribe to the fallacy that the resources do not exist. Just that we hadn’t discovered them yet.
To subscribe to the philosophy that resources are limited and therefore people should be limited as well, is to limit man’s potential, his very essence of being. To eliminate him from the equation. And by doing so eliminate his Creator – God.
Do I think we have a resources problem on Earth? Yes. Do I think personal responsibility plays a role in solving this problem? Yes. But do I think doling out death is the way to solve it?  No.

One thought on “Two Kids Max – Green Lobby Doles Out Death Card

  1. I don’t see how you arrive at the conclusion that people want to kill people to reduce population. Even “radical” proposals merely argue that if we don’t voluntarily reduce our population, nature will do it for us but it will be far more horrific a process than if we do it (stop making babies) ourselves.

    Sorry, but there is no evidence that “god” is at work here or elsewhere and countries that claim to be the most “religious” often have the worst problems, including those related to population, environment, and social justice.

    We’ve already exceeded global carrying capacity. We are now in “overshoot”. (Visualize a car sailing smoothly, but quite temporarily, through the air after having been driven off of a cliff.)

    Global population is nearing 7 billion. Different theorists using different methods seem to end up agreeing that global carrying capacity is probably about 2 billion. (This assumes some level of social justice and a moderate, low by US standards, standard of living. More is possible if you accept a cattle car / Matrix-esque “life”.)

    In any case, we will get to that much-lower-than-7-billion number the hard way (wars, famine, disease, and their accompanying losses of environmental quality, freedom, and social justice) OR the less hard way (immediately and drastically reducing our population voluntarily). Yes, all of us, yes, everywhere. There is no scenario anywhere in which population growth is a “good thing” long term.

    Yes a drop in population would cause problems, but none of those problems are as big as the problems, suffering, and environmental collapse that is certain to occur if we don’t.

    I disagree with any argument that there is some “right to reproduce”. If there is any “right to reproduce” it’s in the concept that one has the freedom to nurture a child or children and form some sort of family. Biological reproduction is not necessary to do that and there are many in need of this sort of nurturing.

    This is a global issue with local and nation-state consequences. For example, immigration is a consequence of overpopulation, not a cause of it. Likewise, global climate change and the collapse of ocean fisheries are not impressed by national boundaries.

    No technological / “alternative energy” options have the capacity or can be ramped up fast enough to avoid major global calamity. That isn’t to say we shouldn’t do them. Aggressively shifting to alternative energy is necessary, just not sufficient.

    For more comprehensive analysis of all this I suggest
