Earth: 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?
New York Times environmental writer Andrew Revkin participated in an Oct. 14 panel discussion on climate change with other media pundits titled "Covering Climate: What's Population Got To Do With It?" People who need people they are not.
In a recently rediscovered book, "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment," co-authored with Malthus fans Paul and Anne Ehrlich, Holdren wrote that families "contribute to general social deterioration by overproducing children" and "can be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility."
Holdren envisions that a "Planetary Regime might be given responsibility for determining the optimum population for the world and for each region and for arbitrating various countries' shares within their regional limits ... the Regime would have some power to enforce the agreed limits." In other words, China on steroids.

The “death panels” return in another form... next step will be forced abortions.. these environmental nutjobs want to turn us into Communist China, although the Chinese themselves are exempt from any environment regulation...
Don’t ask questions.. the Communists always know best!

"Most of us believe socialism is what the socialists want us to believe it is - a share-the-wealth program. That is the theory. But is that how it works?... If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."
- Gary Allen, None Dare Call It Conspiracy
It's no longer just a "theory"...
We are not all that far from having to get a government permit to have a child.
A crackpot Alinskyite socialist, who may not even be an American, his
fuzzy-bearded 1960s-style Malthusian environmentalist wacko "science czar",
and his Hungarian billionaire puppetmaster are going to tell Americans how many
children they can have? That's a B science fiction movie.
I dare Holden and his buddies to try this. How many here are going to roll over and obey?
They won’t succeed. There will be pro-life doctors helping people with home births. Give birth in the living room and guard the house with plenty of ammo.
