PODESTA: ‘Stabilize The Population’ To Fight Global Warming

Daily Caller: Former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post calling for more programs to “stabilize” world population to fight global warming.

Podesta argues “family planning” — code for access to abortion and contraceptives — would “do a world of good for the planet, which is bearing an environmental burden because of population growth.”

“Population projection experts estimate a worst-case scenario in which we grow by 70 percent and reach a population of 13 billion people by the end of the century,” Podesta wrote in an op-ed co-authored with former Colorado Democratic Sen. Tim Wirth.

“But if we continue to invest in sensible international family-planning programs and accept the challenge of meeting the needs of women and families, we could potentially stabilize the population at below 10 billion,” wrote Podesta and Wirth.

 

It’s not a new argument. For decades, catastrophists have argued global population growth would swamp the Earth’s ability to support human life. Stanford University Prof. Paul Ehrlich popularized the argument in his 1968 book “The Population Bomb.”

Ehrlich warned of mass starvation in the 1970s and ’80s due to population growth, and called for policies to limit population growth. Now, Podesta is applying that same logic to stopping man-made global warming.

“In fact, family planning ranks as one of the 10 most substantive solutions to climate change, according to a recent analysis of peer-reviewed research,” wrote Podesta and Wirth. “In addition to being cost-effective from an emissions reduction perspective, the co-benefits to women and families across the globe are enormous.” read more

    > Wait…Wouldn’t Global Warming stabilize the population without any special effort by the spirit cookers?

    OUT! OUT, YOU UNCLEAN LOGIC!

  3. Wars, family planning, contraception and abortion haven’t gotten the job done.

    Flood Europe with islamic fanatics and the problem will be solved within a generation.

    Either the surviving European population will rise up and exterminate the islamic disease or they will be be annihilated.

    Problem solved.

  4. It’s really quite simple. Feminism is keeping females and males apart. Then when the feminist realizes that what she actually wants is a male “provider”, she is already too late to reproduce. This elongated age of childhood has creeped to 50 years!

  5. What Podesta, along with Malthus and Erlich, really mean is that “there are too many brown people.” So far, Podesta is in the running to win the Margaret Sanger Trophy for Racism in Action.

  6. Let’s start with you and you and your family first, jerk. You are one evil worthless SOB. Why do they take cruds like this POS seriously? And take the Clintons, obummers, Kennedy’s and all the rest of the hoity toity, snooty elites with you led by George Soros the biggest POS of all. All of us deplorables will thank you.

  7. I can never understand why these people are not offing themselves along with a note stating how they are saving the world.

  8. I predict that the world will run out of non-fat mocha lattes and reduced fat blueberry muffins by the year 2025 unless urban soccer moms are banned by the World Court. Sure, this is a silly prediction, but doom and gloom sells.

  9. If you look carefully you can see his antennae on the back of his head. He’s never fully recovered after My Favorite Martian was cancelled.

  10. Soooo … the ONLY way to prevent certain, inarguable, mathematically-precise, annihilation of the species is to … ANNIHILATE THE SPECIES?

    Sort of like: “We had to destroy the village in order to save it?”

    Or is it implied that the annihilation is selective?
    Haven’t we read about this before? Selections made for the good of GrossDeutschland and Europe, in general? Now in the United States?

    Hmmm.

    izlamo delenda est …

  11. They don’t care about the species. They want to destroy the more “undesirable” wrong-thinking members of our species to “save the planet.”

    They fewer of us, the more control they have.
