The Scientists Are Muttering About Population Control Again
The one thing that all environmentalists have in common is a hatred of humanity. They loathe mankind and feel guilty for being part of it. As noted cultural critic Sonny Bunch has noted, environmentalists make good movie villains because they want to make your life worse. For example, in the 2014 action-comedy Kingsman: The Secret Service, an insane tech billionaire played by Samuel L. Jackson wanted to kill off most of the population of Earth to save us from ourselves. In the Marvel movies, a tyrannical despot named Thanos wiped out half the universe to save the other half. I think the bad guy in Aquaman was an environmnentalist too, but I can't really remember much about Aquaman. Anyway, the point is that authoritarian lunatics make good villains.
And the best part is that they think they're the good guys! Eric Roston, Bloomberg:
More than 11,000 experts from around the world are calling for a critical addition to the main strategy of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy: there needs to be far fewer humans on the planet.
“We declare, with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from around the world, clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency,” the scientists wrote in a stark warning published Tuesday in the journal BioScience...
The scientists make specific calls for policymakers to quickly implement systemic change to energy, food, and economic policies. But they go one step further, into the politically fraught territory of population control. It “must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity,” they write.
And they want to know why we won't give up our guns.
If these 11,000 scientists really want to "stabilize" the planet by getting rid of humans, I say to them and everyone who agrees with them:
If you really believe your presence on this planet is killing it, then you have a moral and ethical responsibility to set an example for the rest of us to follow. If you want us to go off that cliff, we want to see you jump first.
No? No takers? Didn't think so.
Nice try, nerds. People aren't going to stop living their lives just because you say so. Now pipe down before we give you another swirly.
