Skip to comments.Al Gore: Stabilize population to combat global warming
Posted on 06/22/2011 11:50:31 AM PDT by presidio9
From the safety of the political sidelines, former Vice President Al Gore is venturing into a touchy topic, presenting his holistic view of how to curb the buildup of greenhouse gases warming the planet. Besides improving technology to reduce fossil fuel emissions, he is advocating "educating and empowering girls and women."
"That's the most powerful leveraging factor," Gore said in a speech Monday in New York. "When that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices."
Although not entirely spelled out in the speech, Gore's thinking goes this way: If women are confident their children will survive, and if they have access to "fertility management," and if they have the power to decide how many children they want and when to have them, the result would be stabilization of the global population.
As it stands now, demographers at the United Nations forecast that the world's population will hit 7 billion later this year, march past 9 billion in 2045 and exceed 10 billion by the end of the century. Nearly all of the growth is expected to come in poor nations in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Gore made his remarks at the eighth annual Games for Change Festival, a conference organized by those who want to promote the use of video games for social change.

Same old eugenics/Sanger/nazi evil.
If algore wants to curb human “growth” he should begin with himself. Beyond that, the man is evil.
Hey Gore, what about all of the indigents sitting in wheelchairs and hospital beds taking up oxygen and precious energy? You will probably call for their heads next, right?
Gore couldn’t solve a simple two variable, two equation system.
He is a dufus.
He is stupid.
He is clueless.
Which is why one of the few jobs could do is to serve in our clown-infested senate.
Al Gore should first stabilize his brain chemistry.
Algore should start talking to the muslims. They breed the fastest.
Al Gore has four children.
These Global Warmist nutjobs have wet dreams about getting their finger on the nuclear button. If they could take out 50% of the human population, they would reduce CO2 by 50% they think. The only trouble is, CO2 from humans is a small percent of the total CO2 contribution. They would be killing half the human populaton for nothing.
If Mr. Gore can’t control his sexual urges, who’s he to tell others they should?
Put your money, I mean a bullet, where your mouth is, Al.
Have you noticed that people who want to control everybody else cant control themselves? Al Whore is a typical out of control liberal control freak fascist.
The one good thing about this is - it will be only liberals that stop having children.
Hey Al: does this mean you're now against mass third world immigration into the United States, like the Sierra Club was in 1966 when they started talking about this?
Agore has had a problem with “stability” for a while now
What a little sissy.
Instead just coming out and saying what he really thinks, he has to grovel for emotional support from girls and women by renaming abortion “educating and empowering girls and women.”
Kill people! Save the Snail Darter!
I agree with Gore. We need to stabilize the population. It would be a good start in the right direction,
SINCE WE’RE CURRENTLY REPRODUCING AT LESS THAN THE REPLACEMENT RATE.
we know this- it won’t be the generational welfare recipient that take and take and take and take and give nothing back- well, other than keep uber liberals in power....
Al Gore does kill my urge to breed. Maybe he’s finally decided to speak about something he understands.
Start with those in muslim countries who breed like rabbits. Once you’ve “stabilized” them, get back to us.
Read recently that Europe was under-breeding and was in danger of losing all national identity. Couple this with the over-breeding of Muslims. Europe as we know it will soon disappear.
Was there a hot oil and message the groin competition at this Games for Change Festival?
Seems like the last time I heard about Algore, he had worked his way up to his Fourth Chakra.
Okay Al. Why don’t you start your campaign to stabilize birth rates with a lecture tour through those areas and demographics in the US that have the highest birth rates? Why not take on inner city teenage pregnancy rates as an issue? Why not tour those countries with the highest birth rates?
What has he cashed in on his carbon credits 2-3 billion?
Okay, AL. You go first................
One of the best, most important books of the last decade.
Did this festival have a "happy ending"
The Progressive definition of “empowerment” is “forced sterilization”.
Al Gore...an agenda 21 pimp.
A man desperately in search of relevancy.
This is boob bait for the college “educated” white kids, crap like this when presented to the people of color by a white male sounds like genocide to them. Or basically he is saying to his base, “Send money.”
Gore would outlaw Heterosexual Marriage in favor of Homosexual Marriage in order to reduce surplus population.
As I thought the Melters at the oildrum won’t even post this story because birth control of the colored masses is a no no subject on the left.
The man is a ghoul, plain and simple.
I suppose that's better than going ghey because "The terk er jerbs!"
So pathetic to see a bloated has-been desperately trying to be relevant. How about you do your part, Al, and shut up telling others what to do?
He also needs to include the illegals. Come on Al, you worthless POS, say what you really mean — all of you third world breeders should be controlled (read sterilized) to limit your output.
Since U.S. and European caucasian birth rates have been plateaued or dropping he has to be referring to all of the rest of those populations.
I’m in favor of neutering Al and his spawn as proof of his committment to this idea. Otherwise Al, FOAD.
