    It’s no surprise that people are not evenly spread out across the Earth. But seeing the population concentrations mapped out visually can be quite striking.

    Vatican hosts youth conference with pro-abortion UN activists ROME, November 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — With so much attention focused in recent weeks on the violation of the first commandment, further attacks on the fifth and sixth commandments have gone unnoticed in Vatican City.  In the middle of the Amazon Synod, a smaller but not insignificant gathering was also organized by the Holy See and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), directed by pro-abortion globalist and sustainable development guru, Jeffrey Sachs.  Jeffrey Sachs attends climate change meeting at Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Vatican City, Nov. 2017.

    Catholic World Report ^ | February 22, 2017 | Mark H. Sutherland
    In the 1920s, a legal victory against the rising eugenic tide was won by a Catholic doctor over prominent birth control advocate Marie Stopes. While Stopes is lauded today as a feminist hero, the story of the eugenics libel trial has been largely overlooked. Marie Stopes in her laboratory in 1904. (Image via Wikipedia) Editor’s note: This is the first of two articles on the Stopes v. Sutherland libel trial. In 1923 in Britain, a Catholic doctor won an important victory in the battle against one of the most harmful ideologies of the 20th century: eugenics. The battle was fought...
  • 'Mindless growth': Robust scientific case for degrowth is stronger every day

    Once confined to the small scientific community of climate researchers and ecological economists, the idea of degrowth is now blazing into the mainstream. Not surprisingly, people are trying to figure out what to make of it. Is it an inspiring idea that points the way to a better economy? Or is it a mad notion that’s sure to plunge us all into poverty? Degrowth is a planned reduction of total energy and material use to bring the economy in line with planetary boundaries, while improving people’s lives by distributing income and resources more fairly. The scientific case for degrowth is...
  • Democrats Once Again Embrace Population Control to Save the Planet

    Townhall ^ | 09/10/2019 | Stephen Moore
    Is the left once again embracing Malthusian population control in order to save the planet? Of all the preposterous proposals put forward by the Democratic presidential candidates during the CNN climate change town hall meeting last week, the dumbest wasn't outlawing plastic straws, incandescent light bulbs or air travel. It wasn't the contention that climate change is the globe's greatest threat since World War II. It wasn't even the fantastical hypothesis that hurricanes are racist because they target "communities of color" more than white areas. No, the dumbest (and most dangerous) idea was a rehash of the widely discredited authoritarian...

    A “population control” proposal pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will target “black and brown” people, unborn children, the sick, and elderly people, said Dr. Alveda King, director of Priests for Life’s Civil Rights for the Unborn project and the niece of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in a Friday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and special guest host Rick Manning. During a Wednesday “town hall” hosted by CNN regarding “climate change,” Sanders accepted the premise of population growth on Earth being “unsustainable,” requiring government controls over procreation. Sanders’s proposal, said King, reminded her of...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders says American taxpayers should fund programs in “poor countries” to help women get abortions. During a CNN town hall event in which Sanders and other Democrats r discussed plans to combat climate change, an audience member asked: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and...

    Shortened title. Full title: El Paso Shooter Promoted Population Control: “If We Can Get Rid of Enough People” Planet Will be “Sustainable” The man who police say committed the deadly shooting spree in El Paso, Texas, is believed to have published an anti-immigrant manifesto minutes before the attack. Law enforcement officials said they were confident that an anti-immigrant screed posted online belongs to Patrick Wood Crusius, 21, who they said is responsible for Saturday’s mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso—leaving at least 20 dead and 26 wounded or injured. The nearly 2,400-word manifesto outlines reasons for launching the...

    The mother of a 12-year-old Beaver Falls girl is demanding answers after a doctor implanted birth control in her arm. The clinic, Adagio Health Turtle Creek, said it does not need parental consent to perform the procedure, but the girl’s mother said she was brought there by another woman against her will. Turtle Creek Police tell KDKA’s Meghan Schiller that the mother did file a police report and that charges against the female suspect are pending and will likely be filed this week. The family says the suspect is a family acquaintance, and they wanted to come forward to warn...

    CNN interviewed discredited environmental catastrophist Paul Ehrlich in its coverage of the United Nations’ latest warning of ecological collapse due to human activities and climate change. Humanity will need to start “consuming less, polluting less and having fewer children” if it’s going to stop mass extinction in the coming decades, CNN correspondent Nick Watt said summarizing the U.N. report, which was released Monday. Ehrlich, a Stanford University professor, told CNN he was “pessimistic” that countries could solve predicted ecological disaster in part because of President Donald Trump pledging to leave the Paris climate accord.

    Overpopulated planet EDITOR: In response to Pete Golis’ Sunday column (“A child is born and we think about what’s possible”), a letter writer laments his failure to mention climate change in his concerns for his granddaughter’s future (“For the next generation,” Tuesday). I would argue that the real elephant in the room is the child herself. There are currently 7.4 billion people on a planet that is creaking and groaning under the demands placed upon it by the same. A number set to rise to 10 billion within 30 years. You think we’ve got problems now? A great many of...

This is a crime, but it’s not a conspiracy. Rather, it is caused by a collection of powerful special interests whose political agendas align.

    Berkeley Declares A ‘Climate Emergency,’ Calls For Population Control 2:51 PM 06/13/2018 Michael Bastasch | Contributor The California city that was home to 1960s radicals and known for excessively liberal politics declared a “climate emergency” on Tuesday evening, backing policies to “humanely stabilize” the human population. The Berkeley City Council unanimously voted to mobilize other California governments “to initiate a just local, state, national, and global climate emergency mobilization to restore a safe climate.” The council’s resolution, introduced by Council Member Cheryl Davila, warned that man-made global warming was “driving a global fresh water scarcity crisis and the sixth mass...

    Live Action ^ | 2014 | Becky Yeh
    In 1920, under Bolshevik rule, Russia was the first country to legalize abortion up to birth without restrictions. The method by Lenin’s political faction was a way to destroy the family unit and to free women into the workforce. The Bolsheviks even designed the machine for suction abortions that is still used widely in abortion clinics across America. Joseph Stalin outlawed the practice in 1936, and it remained illegal in the country until after his death in 1953. Until recently, Russian women reportedly had seven abortions over their lifetime. In 2003, BBC reported there were 13 abortions for every 10...

  • Science proves kids are bad for Earth. Morality suggests we stop having them.

    A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children. Although culturally controversial, the scientific half of this position is fairly well-established. Several years ago, scientists showed that having a child, especially for the world’s wealthy, is one of the worst things you can do for the environment. That data was recycled this past summer in a paper showing...

    Rapidly growing human populations risk having a "terrible impact" on the world, the Duke of Cambridge has warned. The Duke said that as a result, wildlife was being put under "enormous pressure" and called for the issue to be addressed with renewed vigour. His concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 advocated “voluntary family limitation" as a means of solving overpopulation, which he described as the biggest challenge in conservation. His grandson, royal patron of the Tusk Trust, told the charity’s gala dinner in London that measures needed to be taken to save certain...

    A conference sponsored by two pontifical academies embraced a kind of environmental determinism that looks at human reproduction as a mere bio-technical issue.A papal commission is reviewing Humanae Vitae ahead of its 50th anniversary in 2018. Some worry the commission is part of a conspiracy to change the teaching of the Church on spousal love and procreation. It’s hard to say. On the positive side, a review of Blessed Paul VI’s final encyclical could clear away many misconceptions about the magisterial teaching on the transmission of life, chief among them the notion that the Church should sanction population control to...

    We've all heard of ways to reduce our carbon footprint: biking to work, eating less meat, recycling. But there's another way to help the climate. A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that the biggest way to reduce climate change is by having fewer children. "I knew this was a sensitive topic to bring up," says study co-author Kimberly Nicholas on NPR's Morning Edition. "Certainly it's not my place as a scientist to dictate choices for other people. But I do think it is my place to do the analysis and report it fairly." The study concludes that...
