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
