Posted on 06/22/2011 9:08:37 AM PDT by broken_arrow1
On Monday, former Vice President Al Gore discussed climate change and pollution control at the Games for Change convention in New York City. Aside from his usual litanies of environmental advice nuggets, the 2000 presidential candidate delved into family planning.
Curiously, Gore said that couples need to learn to feel comfortable having small families so that pollution can be curbed. When asked about what could be done to address population growth, he said:
One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women. You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.
You have to lift child survival rates so that parents feel comfortable having small families and most important you have to educate girls and empower women. And thats the most powerful leveraging factor, and when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices.

Owl Gore go buy your own island and have your followers with you until they get fed up also.
Why doesn’t algore just “off” himself and set an example for us to follow?
Good thing that he did not become President of the United States.
typical libtard behaviorist mentality of social planning and social engineering.
If you anagram “global warming” you get (among many others)
“Algor wang limb”.
Weren’t the women of the Western world already called on to have fewer children, and then, right after, told that immigration from the non-Western world was absolutely necessary for the economy because they’d had too few children?
All this coming from the man who kept knockin’ up Tipper until he got a son! Ted Turner is another blowhard when he talks about the need to “control” population.....but doesn’t mention the fact that he has FIVE kids!
I am so tired of the “do as I say, not as I do” crowd - and the adoring media that will never call them on their blatant hypocrisy!
maybe his mother should have chose..
Go to hell Al.
Algore should lobby Zer0 to sign an Executive Order that allows only one child per couple. After all, that has worked so well in China.
Make birth control mandatory for anyone receiving welfare or disability payments.
...because reducing the birth rate has been so successful in China and Europe.
Maybe someone should apply this “fertility management” to welfare queens.
As usual, there is a total disconnect between liberal dogma and the real world. On the one hand, libs want birthrate decline and "sustainable" growth. On the other hand, they want to redistribute wealth so people can lie around, watch tv and draw money for every child they bear,encouraging multiple welfare families. There are already third, maybe fourth, generation welfare families.
Libs/Dems are certifiable--every one of them.
George Soros is another. He’s spawned 5.
Gotta understand, they just want to create a perfect world for their master race with a manageable number of serfs to serve them.
It’s right there in black and white folks. You can’t make this stuff up. Al Gore believes children are pollution. Well, at least other people’s kids.
Yeah Al your mother should have practiced that as well,Not polluting the place with a filthy Commie like yourself.
“Can rationalizing shooting people in the back of the head to control ‘surplus’ population be far behind?”
It’s the “China Method”. ObaMao wants to emulate them.
Yep, that’s exactly it.
Things will be PERFECT when the right people are given enough power to implement their superior ideas on the whole world.
I call on Al Gore to shut his mouth... to curb BS.
Children are “pollution?”
By the way, Algore has four children. So four must be OK with him.
how many of his grandchildren is he willing to turn over to the childless so they won’t pollute the earth by having their own?
maybe more people should just have nice anonymous massages instead of sex?
Frauds on the scale globalist warming have one purpose, control. The final solution is to downsize humanity to a controllable level, and the lunacy only begins with abortion.
Downsizing government is the better option.
We have ELEVEN children, two married, with ten grandchildren so far.
See my tagline.
Lets hope the Leftists abort and birth-control themselves out of existence.
The greatest blessing God gives to the living is, “I will multiply your seed.”
The greatest curse he gives to the living is, “I will cut off your generations.”
The Left is rejecting God’s greatest blessing while welcoming His greatest curse.
Even the genocidal, barbaric, Mohammedan savages know that “the hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
It’s time for a Lorena Bobbit Day to save the world. Make eunuchs of all males. We’ll save the earth, and women will be free and enlightened. lol
In Al Gore’s perfect world, he’ll ride through the countryside in his air conditioned limo on roads off limits to all but a few. Outside the quaint collective farmers will toil in the fields using nothing but manpower and wooden implements.
Its nothing new really, royalty has a long history of similar behavior.
“GLORY TO THE GREAT STALIN”
His daughter Karenna has 3 kids- when is she gonna put a plug in it?
Correct! Without immigration to Germany, in about 20 years there will be one retiree for two workers. Assuming a retiree receives 50% of his or her salary each worker would pay 25% of his or her salary for that one retiree. Lots of assumptions here: no inflation and everyone is earning the same income) But the point is, this is the result of low birth rates-at least for some period of time-lots of retirees and few workers. China may see this problem in about 20 years. People who study economic development wonder if China will get rich before it gets old.
I call it a “neo-feudalist” mindset or worldview.
Their goal is to have a society just as you have described.
Their supporters naively believe that they will also be in that air conditioned limo instead of toiling in the fields.
Orwellian euphemism for "birth panels."
so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.
But of course the whole point of this is the complete absence of "choice."
Please tell Algore about your family ... maybe his head will explode.
This from the man who attempts raping hotel masseuses! Undoubtedly without a condom.
20 years? Sounds like just enough time for us Westerners to get busy, to get to it starting right now.
I’ve been wondering what’s going to happen with China too, the way they’re going. Apparently, the disproportionate number of males has many of them marrying Africans, or those from surrounding countries.

On the train from St. Petersburg to Moscow in 1998, we saw this very thing for many miles. Not a car or tractor or telephone pole in sight. Not even a donkey. Everything was done by hand. Nothing but ramshackle, run-down huts made with rough sawn lumber and log slabs, and people in groups hoeing common gardens and fields by the side of the tracks.
NO signs of modern civilization until we were about 50 km from Moscow.
“... you have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management...”
Gee, you don’t think this phrase means abortion, do you? Ubiquitous availability of fertility management?
It means abortion at gunpoint. It also means sterilization at gunpoint.
To have fewer children, implies having less sexual relations.
Less sexual relations equals sex-crazed poodles.
The birth rates in most of Western Europe are already far below replacement rate, except for the immigrated Muslims in those countries (France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, etc...). The US is just about at replacement rate. If the west takes Gore’s recommendations, the appearance of the global Caliphate will be hastened.
How about a “one child” policy like Red China - then Thomas Friedman’s dreams can come true..........
I see that as a selling point - if only liberals are refusing to reproduce, won't we end up with fewer liberals and more conservatives?
Embarrassment after embarrassment after embarrassment and this clown algore refuses to go away.
Yup, He’s a democrat all right.
