Al Gore: Stabilize population to combat global warming
LA Times ^ | June 22, 2011 | Kenneth R. Weiss

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.

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.

[Gore] is advocating "educating and empowering girls and women." "Especially single, working women, in professions like massage therapy. Make sure you are not fertile at work. It's to help the feverish PLANET!" the former Vice President shouted.

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.

Al Gore rediscovers the Overpopulation BS.

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?

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.”

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.

Al,

Start with those in muslim countries who breed like rabbits. Once you’ve “stabilized” them, get back to us.

Until then...

STFU.

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.

Note the population growth isn’t in western countries. So, the imperialist needs to invade and control population growth’s of primarily Islamic countries.

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?

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.”

Well, I could, perhaps be persuaded to endorse the Sanger connection if abortion only involved potential liberals. No, scratch that. Even the chance of new soul not becoming a rabid liberal outweighs my errant first-thought..

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.
