Scientists: Climate Change Means Some of You Have to Go

The real solution to our climate crisis is fewer humans, scientists say. Yesterday, the American Institute of Biological Sciences journal Bioscience published a declaration signed by 11,000 scientists stating “clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency” and that “[a]n immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis.” Among their prescriptions: end fossil fuel drilling, reduce living standards for the rich, shrink national economies, and take meat off the menu.
The real pith, though, is population control. “[T]he world population must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced,” they say. They tout “proven and effective policies that strengthen human rights while lowering fertility rates”—including government-supplied contraception and abortion, and more education for women, which presumably suppresses the urge to have children.
Over the roar and clatter of such alarmism, truth can get drowned out. But it’s worth remembering: Science’s track record on this issue is abysmal.
The notion that the only hope for this doomed planet is to eliminate humans is at least decades old. This very month 50 years ago, Stanford professor Paul Ehrlich suggested that, to prevent global cooling, the government might reduce the population by putting sterility drugs in the food and water supply. You can read this and many other deranged and failed predictions collected by scientist Tony Heller in response to this latest scientific edict on overpopulation. (Our Brad Macdonald wrote a great article in June showing the real motive behind the push to depopulate—and it has nothing to do with concern for the Earth.) Mr. Heller has also created an eye-opening video—worth watching all 12 minutes—showing blatant fraud in the Fourth National Climate Assessment produced by the U.S. government in November 2018.
It is good to be reminded of such facts, because they are being absolutely buried by noise. We’re told that activist children like Greta Thunberg “get it” as they scold and scream at the world for supposed inaction regarding climate change. And what barbarian would dare question 11,000 scientists? The media is on board this train, and more and more leaders are clambering on, or being pushed there—and are making ruinous decisions accordingly. It has become presumed consensus. But it still doesn’t make it true.
Right now, Australia is withering in drought (you can hear about this on today’s Trumpet Hour), and California is burning. Every such curse we suffer brings out the climatologists, who speak as though these disasters would cease if only we would all become vegetarians, erect windmills, and stop flying airplanes. This is not only delusional, it is terribly dangerous—because it obscures the real lesson we must take from these curses!
I urge you to read our booklet Why ‘Natural’ Disasters?—especially Chapter 3: “The Deadly Climate Change Deception.” Amid all the cacophony and hullabaloo on this subject, here is some truth—ABSOLUTE truth based on the Bible. It gives the real solution to the problem—and it “clearly and unequivocally” does NOT involve suppressing fertility rates and encouraging abortions!
