The Elite Believe That You Are Ruining Their Planet And They Want You To Stop Reproducing

Today, there are more than 7 billion people living on earth.  For the global elite, that is problem number one.  The vast majority of us don’t spend much time thinking about global population issues, but for many among the elite it is an absolute obsession.  Many of them truly believe that you are ruining their planet and they desperately want you to stop reproducing so much.  Among the elite, the belief that the world is grossly overpopulated and that this is causing most of our major global problems crosses all political, cultural and social boundaries.  This philosophy is taught as gospel at the vast majority of all colleges and universities on the planet, and it is being relentlessly pushed by the United Nations, the WHO, the World Bank and national governments all over the globe.  When most people think of “overpopulation”, they think of places such as India, but the truth is that those of us living in America are considered to be the worst offenders because our lifestyles are “polluting” the planet so rapidly.  In fact, one scientist recently estimated that a child born in the United States has a “carbon legacy” 55 times greater than a child born in India.  The elite are convinced that if they can reduce the global population far enough and get the remaining people living on earth to switch over to “sustainable lifestyles” that they will be able to save “their” planet.  But the draconian measures that would be necessary to achieve this dystopian dream would not be very palatable to the vast majority of us.  In fact, if the most radical population control advocates get their way, we will experience global tyranny on a scale never seen before.


Right now, most of us living in the western world are not prepared to accept “forced” population control measures and the global elite know this.  But the truth is that they absolutely love what is going on right now in places such as China.

In China today, a one child policy is strictly enforced, and women are literally pulled from their homes and taken to abortion clinics when they are found to be in violation.  The following example comes from a recent CNN article….

When Ji Yeqing awakened, she was already in the recovery room.

Chinese authorities had dragged her out of her home and down four flights of stairs, she said, restraining and beating her husband as he tried to come to her aid.

They whisked her into a clinic, held her down on a bed and forced her to undergo an abortion.

Her offense? Becoming pregnant with a second child, in violation of China’s one-child policy.

So does the international community condemn China for such actions?

No, in fact the United Nations gives China awards for their population reduction policies.

In the western world, there are also great efforts underway to reduce family sizes and to get women to choose not to have children.  But these efforts are always “voluntary”.  We are told that if women are “empowered” that they will always choose to have fewer children.

But many radical environmentalists are openly complaining that these voluntary methods are not getting the job done fast enough.

For example, the following is from a recent article by Julia Whitty for Mother Jones….

The only known solution to ecological overshoot is to decelerate our population growth faster than it’s decelerating now and eventually reverse it—at the same time we slow and eventually reverse the rate at which we consume the planet’s resources. Success in these twin endeavors will crack our most pressing global issues: climate change, food scarcity, water supplies, immigration, health care, biodiversity loss, even war. On one front, we’ve already made unprecedented strides, reducing global fertility from an average 4.92 children per woman in 1950 to 2.56 today—an accomplishment of trial and sometimes brutally coercive error, but also a result of one woman at a time making her individual choices. The speed of this childbearing revolution, swimming hard against biological programming, rates as perhaps our greatest collective feat to date.

But it’s not enough. And it’s still not fast enough. Faced with a world that can support either a lot of us consuming a lot less or far fewer of us consuming more, we’re deadlocked: individuals, governments, the media, scientists, environmentalists, economists, human rights workers, liberals, conservatives, business and religious leaders.

For radicals such as Whitty, things are never moving fast enough.  They truly believe that humanity is destroying the planet and that they are literally attempting to “save the world” by pushing for global population control.

But this kind of thinking is not just reflected in the writings of a few radicals.

The truth is that “scientific reports” advocating global population control are regularly featured in the most important newspapers all over the planet.

The following example comes from a recent article in the Guardian….

World population needs to be stabilised quickly and high consumption in rich countries rapidly reduced to avoid “a downward spiral of economic and environmental ills”, warns a major report from the Royal Society.

Contraception must be offered to all women who want it and consumption cut to reduce inequality, says the study published on Thursday, which was chaired by Nobel prize-winning biologist Sir John Sulston.

The assessment of humanity’s prospects in the next 100 years, which has taken 21 months to complete, argues strongly that to achieve long and healthy lives for all 9 billion people expected to be living in 2050, the twin issues of population and consumption must be pushed to the top of political and economic agendas.

When was the last time that you saw an article that was 100% opposed to global population control featured in an important newspaper?

Sadly, this population control agenda has a complete stranglehold on the scientific community.  The philosophy that the earth is massively overpopulated and that this overpopulation is causing most of our biggest problems is considered to be gospel at most of our colleges and universities today.

If you question this orthodoxy, you risk being academically blackballed.

Not only that, but the scientific community considers the biggest offenders of all to be Americans because of our “excessive” lifestyles.

For example, just check out what statistician Paul Murtaugh of Oregon State University said a while back….

“Using United Nations projections of fertility, and projecting statistically through the lifespan of the mother’s line—some lineages being short-lived, others indefinitely long—an American child born today adds an average 10,407 tons of carbon dioxide to the carbon legacy of her mother. That’s almost six times more CO2 than the mother’s own lifetime emissions. Furthermore, the ecological costs of that child and her children far outweigh even the combined energy-saving choices from all a mother’s other good decisions, like buying a fuel-efficient car, recycling, using energy-saving appliances and lightbulbs. The carbon legacy of one American child and her offspring is 20 times greater than all those other sustainable maternal choices combined.”

Murtaugh also believes that a child born in the United States has a “carbon legacy” that is 55 times greater than that of a child born in India.

This helps to explain why the elite are so obsessed with abortion and “family planning”.

The elite are desperate to convince you to stop reproducing.

They truly believe that they are helping to “save the world” when they convince us to have less children.

In fact, the amount of money that is being spent to promote “family planning” around the globe is absolutely staggering.

For example, according to a recent MarketWatch article Bill and Melinda Gates plan to spend 4 billion dollars to get contraceptive devices into the hands of 120 million more women by the year 2020….

Melinda Gates recently announced a “new crusade” for her $32 billion Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. A recent Newsweek interview with Michelle Goldberg says it’s a “decision that is likely to change lives all over the planet.”

Gates has “decided to make family planning her signature issue,” by investing “billions to revolutionize contraception worldwide,” with substantial economic consequences.

The Gates decision will “be hugely significant for American women.” She’s “pouring money into the long-neglected field of contraceptive research, seeking entirely new methods of birth control,” a “whole new class of drugs,” some that could even work without hormones, and others, might be implantable devises that never need to be removed, can even be turned on and off by the woman.

While Bill and Melinda Gates portray their population control efforts as “humanitarian endeavors”, others among the global elite are more open about what they consider the “endgame” to be.

The following examples are from a recent article by Paul Joseph Watson….

Finnish environmentalist guru Pentti Linkola, publicly called for climate change deniers be “re-educated” in eco-gulags and that the vast majority of humans be killed with the rest enslaved and controlled by a green police state, with people forcibly sterilized, cars confiscated and travel restricted to members of the elite.

Another Finnish environmentalist writer, Martin Kreiggeist, hails Linkola’s call for eco-gulags and oppression as “a solution,” calling for people to “take up the axes” in pursuit of killing off the third world. Kreiggeist wants fellow eco-fascists to “act on” Linkola’s call for mass murder in order to solve overpopulation.

– In 2010, James Lovelock, the creator of the Gaia hypothesis, told the Guardian that “democracy must be put on hold” to combat global warming and that “a few people with authority” should be allowed to run the planet because people were too stupid to be allowed to steer their own destinies.

There are a surprising number of people out there that actually advocate for mass murder and mass enslavement for the good of the planet.

Dave Foreman, the co-founder of Earth First, once stated that reducing the global population to 100 million people is one of his three main goals….

“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”

Sadly, this philosophy has even infected the U.S. government.  The truth is that billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars have been spent to promote population control around the globe, and it hasn’t mattered much whether Republicans or Democrats were in the White House.  The following is an excerpt from an article entitled “The Population Control Holocaust” by Robert Zubrin…..

Of the billions of taxpayer dollars that the U.S. government has expended on population control abroad, a portion has been directly spent by USAID on its own field activities, but the majority has been laundered through a variety of international agencies. As a result of this indirect funding scheme, all attempts to compel the population control empire to conform its activities to accepted medical, ethical, safety, or human rights norms have proven futile. Rather, in direct defiance of laws enacted by Congress to try to correct the situation, what has and continues to be perpetrated at public expense is an atrocity on a scale so vast and varied as to almost defy description. Nevertheless, it is worth attempting to convey to readers some sense of the evil that is being done with their money.

If you have not read the rest of that article yet, you really should.  You can find the rest of that article right here.

At this point, nearly every major international organization is involved in these population control efforts to at least some degree.

For example, a recent article by Jurriaan Maessen detailed how the World Bank is actually using “financial assistance” as leverage to get developing nations to conform to the global population control agenda….

According to two subsequent documents put out by the World Bank, its guidelines dictate that in order to qualify for World Bank lending, sovereign nations must implement population reduction objectives as outlined by the World Bank and UN Population Fund. If they refuse, lending will be withdrawn.

Already pre-tested and implemented in Yemen and Niger, these guidelines are destined for global implementation within the next decade, says the World Bank.

Isn’t that sick?

Later in that same article, Maessen discusses how the UN, the WHO, the World Bank and many other international organizations all work together to move this twisted agenda forward….

Returning to the essence, the intention and the strategy leave little for the imagination: a global consensus is in place between all the major transnational institutions and banks: the earth’s population must be brought down, with all means necessary. The World Bank uses financial tools to bring nations on their knees, demanding they cull their numbers; the UN guarantees the political legitimizing for these depopulation policies (Agenda 21); the Foundations develop the anti-fertility vaccines and GM Food, the World Health Organization takes care of the “health-standards” and distribution. With the help of this global construct, carefully coordinated from the top-down, the scientific dictatorship has circled the wagons around all of free humanity.

Sadly, there is so much more that could be said about all of this.  If you are interested in learning more about the disgusting population control agenda of the global elite, the following are 10 more articles I would recommend checking out….

This population control agenda is not going away any time soon.

In fact, thanks to endless propaganda in the media, it is winning over more hearts and minds with each passing day.

Just ask some of your friends what they think.  If you are like most Americans, it is almost inevitable that you will have some friends that believe in global population control.

And without a doubt there will be readers that leave comments at the end of this article supporting the population control agenda of the global elite.

The idea that humanity is ruining the planet and that we need to dramatically reduce our numbers is being relentlessly pushed today.  Millions upon millions of people all over the world have bought into this lie hook, line and sinker.

Ultimately, this philosophy will lead us down a path that will end in absolute global tyranny.

So what do you think about this issue?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below….

  • Not “their” planet. It s “our” planet. We are all in this together and reducing birth rates is key to a healthy, prosperous future for all.

      Or maybe older guys like you Bruce being denied healthcare is key to a healthy, prosperous future.

        Lesley’s not related to Al. I have to emphasize that.

    • XX

      I agree. The inane publisher of this article cites real developments within the “technocratic, sustainability” side of the global governance apparatus, however, he does not refute or attempt to present even 1 convincing argument against the basic reasoning behind population reduction.

      It is undeniable, the earth is being completely destroyed and while the planet could theoretically sustain probably between 13 to 16 billion people, this would require 2 developments to occur:
      1. There would have to be a global resource-rational production & distribution scheme which would ensure that each person could have enough air, water & food, in an environment where, due to the resulting scarcity on clean resources, excess & hoarding would be directly correlated with human death.
      2. There would have to be a dramatic reduction in the quality of life for a dramatically higher percentage of the world’s population than currently experience miserable lives.

      Rather than accept these awful outcomes of unfettered industrialization, let us instead embark on a course to drastically limit the global population to around 500 million. Then, if the economic system of labor allocation and productivity distribution were altered from its current ridiculous state, where a tiny non-working elite hoard the vast majority of resources produced by the back-breaking toil of the hoard, all could theoretically live in prosperity & dignity. Currently – even if we were able to achieve worker ownership of enterprises or, alternatively, a more highly socialized distribution of wealth – that would still not save us from the inevitable wall which industrial activity in extraction, farming, manufacturing & services shove us up against, as fewer and fewer usable resources remain.

      Population control – and population reduction – could be achieved without violent coercion, if:
      1. The message were much more broadly explained and propagandized in schools (1 child per family and adoption of orphans & abandoned children was taught as the ideal and the costs of multiple child parenting by average people emphasized).
      2. Financial incentives were given yearly to those that did not have children or had only 1 and were not given to those that had more than 1 child, and these incentives were very broadly and widely announced in areas with high childbirth rates. The compounding effects of a non-compliant underclass would be mitigated through social funding of education, health, utilities and low-income housing. For every 1 homeless person in the United States there are approximately 22 unoccupied homes. Our current irrational economic system relies upon artificial scarcity to pump up demand for the offerings of large profiteering institutions.
      3. Fully publicly funded education, health and utilities would improve the professional opportunities of women in high birthrate zones and encourage individual self-development & professional independence vs. domestic-only paths. This would easily be possible with reduced defense budgets and with the inherent efficiency gains of nationalization: proven the world over when comparing service output per dollar between privately & publicly funded health providers.

    Let the folks that support these ideas start with thenselves. That should reduce the population in the US by about 100 million. Without all the control freak socialists we might have a chance to be free. All those pensions the libs have would be gone. Let those at the Fed join in and maybe congress could offer themselves up. As long as the elites show their followers how they do it, this might work. Hey how about old moldy George Sorros joining in and the Gates might as well while he is at it. And let’s not forget Al Gore, I bet he would be first in line to take the first step to save this brave new world. lol





      I agree with the elites. I think people should stop reproducing, but for much different reasons. People should stop reproducing because they should want to do it, not because of some nefarious plan that forces them to stop. What sane, logical, and rational human being would want to bring children into the world as it currently exists?

      It’s not as if the reproducing population has done anything to make the world a better place for the children that they bring into it. If you are a democrat, a republican, a liberal, a conservative, a libertarian, a card carrying member of the other -isms, or a religious fanatic you have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. So why would anyone who falls into the above categories would want to bring more children into this place where the only future that their children will have is economic and social suffering and lingering death?

      NO CHILDREN HERE…………………

      • mark

        Reed, your ideas are more absurd each time you write. If you do not want children then don’t. We will not make you. You have a choice one way or another. I happen to enjoy a childs free spirit. If they are raised with love all the wealth in the world does not make them happier. Children and adults have been poor at todays standards of wealth and found happiness. I know that you are not a religious person from prior postings, but you can find joy in life through Christ.

        I agree with you 100%. Living on a planet with 7 billion people is not pleasant. I got myself fixed when I was 28, I am now 57, and I have never regretted it. When people my age talk about their grandchildren, all I can think of is “What kind of future do these poor kids have to look forward to?”

      • annie

        Disease, corruption, wars chaos blah blah up to 10 reasons for population control have been hammering humanity since there was a handful of us….it’s the fallen state of man not their numbers! however, we are free to think what we like so all these folks who have beeen brainwashed into believing that curbing the popuation is such a perfect solution…. why go ahead.. start with yourselves. After all greater love has no man than this than that he lay down his life for his friend aka earth!! Cherio chaps, thanks for your sacrifice so we who love and celebrate life can enjoy the earth YOU willing to die to save!

    • Nexus789

      Jesus…who is that? There will be NO saving. We, that is humans, on planet earth created the problem and nothing external is going to save the human race. There will not be enough resources on the plane. We are not really a caring and sharing species. Easily accessible energy resources WILL run out and no amount of ‘alternative’ energy sources will make up the short fall. Two billion Indians and Chinese have been unleashed on the planet and the expect the same level of consumer waste, useless stuff and obesity as Americans. No chance.

  • Yea, the propaganda is absurd, it is, BUT in reality the sun rays changing every 11 or so years has a MASSIVELY WAYYYYYYY larger effect than all of the delusional Al Gore concerns and deranged leftist hype AND in reality they just don’t like people in general, which is why they wanna reduce the populations, because when there’s too many of them out there, well, they can’t control people as much as they wanna like kenneled dogs sleeping in their own urine all the time while they view people in general as just a bunch of chia pets to grow up AND hack down for delusional & deranged pleasures that they understand the most!!!!

      The New American is a magazine/website either funded or ran by the John Birch Society (so whatever your opinion is of those guys is what’ll probably apply to that website as well). Essentially, it’s a simple news website that’ll sometimes run a decent story or two. I can’t say as to the quality of the linked story as I haven’t read it.

  • Gary2

    I think most everyone can agree that their are way too many people on the earth. I have yet to drive to work and wish for more traffic, or to go to a store and wish for longer lines at the check out.

    That said I do not have a good solution except that as women are more educated they voluntarily have fewer children. I also blame men as we like to go around having sex with lots of different women. We need to as men start to think with the right head :)

    • Tim

      “I also blame men as we like to go around having sex with lots of different women.”

      Are you speaking for yourself? I don’t think that’s true of most men. Do men think about other women? You betcha. But that’s not the same as actually having relations with other women.

      • Gary2

        you would be surprised!

        I also thought if one thought about having sex with a womwen it was the same in Gods eyes as actually doing it so why not go all the way??? If you are screwed either way (I am so funny) you may as well go for the real thing!

        I have never met a man who would not at the drop of a hat have sex with an average to above average looking woman married or not (her or him) at the drop of a hat, especially if they knew they would not get caught by their wife. Is’nt that what viagra is for? Why do you think its called the forbidden fruit?? and why there are so many divorces?

    Good Grief. Babies are not the cause of the world’s woes, nor for that matter is LIFE.
    Seems that these misanthropists suffer a bad case of wealth inflated ego.

    This quote nailed the true intent of these unGodly people…”My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”
    Don’t want any human blight in their wilderness wonderland now do they. Let us hope the gent encounters an angry Mama Grizzlie bear with cubs in his utopian wildlands.

    The world would bloom and grow very nicely if it were not for the wealth inflated misanthropists holding monopoly on life sustaining resources.

    And no, Carbon Dioxide is not public enemy #1. Don’t believe it for a minute. C02 is the gas of life! As is the suns energy. Which by the way is supposed to be a warm yellow not the glaring white thanks to the change in the albedo of the atmosphere by the particulates the egotistical genocidal maniacs are dousing the globe with.

    “Aside from the Finns, this all sounds reasonable to me…What would you suggest, out-of-control population growth right up until Jesus comes and saves us all?”

    Well, it wouldn’t be political correct to cull populations under nationality, ethnicity, or gender. It also makes it much more difficult to prove that hate crimes are being committed as well. Essentially, what population control is underlined in is preventing unwanted populations under productive, consumption, and effectively contributes profits are underlined. The flip side of the coin is a push for Euthanasia, which hasn’t quite come to light yet. Euthanasia comes from: Suicide/Self-Purgement or Liquidation, denial of life via quality of life, or denied access to medical technology. In short, population control’s principle objective is to attain the power of life and death aka food and water, energy, labor/productivity (which is used to attain mediums of exchange for food, water, and energy), and mobility/immobility (If you’re forced into a prune to drought region, there’s a good chance survival is also reduced).

    “What would you suggest, out-of-control population growth right up until Jesus comes and saves us all?”

    Well, I’d imagine that you have taken an Environmental Geography class. I take it that you didn’t notice the formula used in the book? Off top of my head on population, the book operates: First, it discusses overcrowding, which is quite true derived by too many people moving into major cities that also impacts food production. Second, it begins talking about sustainable development and environmental accounting (the mechanism to determine programs of sustainable development). Third it spends time effectively ripping traditional forms of farming/Agriculture apart using environmental accounting. Fourth, it then discusses over-population. The formula is really quite simple and straight forward: Tell a truth, which is over-crowding for major cities, yet urbanization is also a major goal for quite a few influential people. Then setup the measures that will be necessary to create sustainable development, which truly is Agenda 21, and this enables the environmental accounting to effectively and largely deceptively guilty-trip students into supporting said measures. Then afterwards sell it sells its case for overpopulation. Essentially, the book is largely indoctrination as the key function of sustainable development and environmental accounting is to underline a justify to seize the power of life and death, which amounts to Absolute Power.

    Large populations actually creates a buffer for inevitable genetic losses of diversity within that species gene pool. Not to put a fine point on it, Lake Toba erupted approximately 78,000 years ago or so at a time that the planet was believed to be undergoing a climatic shift towards an ice age. Lake Toba accelerated that shift as well as potentially prolonged it. Additionally of the immediate and indirect effects of that time, people, humanity, past through a genetic bottleneck resulting approximately 10,000 women of a population range from South Africa-the Middle East and potentially parts of eastern Europe like the Balkans. If Lake Toba erupted today on the same estimated VEI magnitude, humanity would pass through a bottleneck, but it would survive as well as mobilize resources due to technology developed through abandoning Paleolithic/Neolithic eras for settlements and city-nation states aka Civilization to aid in the recovery.

    If Sustainable Development aka Agenda 21 was implemented and population successfully kept under half a million roughly demanded upon by the first commandment of the Georgia Guidestones, Lake Toba’s eruption today would lack the necessary technology to implement such a response Industrialized Civilization can mobilize. Granted, humanity would probably survive, but we are talking about a massive loss of genetic diversity that present Industrialized Civilization most likely and capably would have been able to minimize as well. Considering (and aside from the surprising double-standard to lost to time claims), extinction level events typically come from several contributing factors and between 2-3 catalysts depopulation, particularly a species who is strongly dependent on intelligence for invention and innovation to survive, makes the entire species incredibly more vulnerable to said catalysts as well as other species.

    Throughout history, war has been predominantly fought on a large scale between two or more ambitious politicians and military politicians. I’m not interested in blaming the tools that motivated the populace to support said politicians of any stripe be it religion like the Thirty-Years war between Protestant France and Catholic Holy Roman Empire, nationalism, and etc.

    We have an over-crowding issue that only becomes overpopulation through the implementation of sustainable development, which actually and effectively results in and strongly encourages urbanization.

    Contraception is a good idea. Third world families are producing far more children then they can feed. The developed world is dependent of an ever increasing number of workers to pay for those on social security or similar program. The solution is not to feed the system with more and more people which creates a greater burden in the future. The social security ponzi scheme is inherently flawed.

  • Cinderella Man

    Dont worry population control freaks when the economy is purposely crashed, and millions are freezing and starving to death or commiting suicide from economic despair, you will have your wish for the great culling to begin. Just dont think that you will be safe in your little bunkers waiting it out till were all dead, cus there is enough of us awake that we WILL FIND YOU and make sure you dont go into the post apocoliptic world with happy happy thoughts of the world being your playground when we are all dead. Nope if we go down you go down. You can see the agenda unfolding today. Ask yourself some hard questions. Why do they want farming and ranching to disappear as a way of life? Why are they getting rid of coal powered affordable energy? Why is the govt allowing The FED to print dollar nonstop so food becomes unaffordable for much of the population? Why is nothing being said about the dangers of Fukushima? Why are abortions and birth control being made readily available to children and young adults? Why the big push for the new healthcare law that will limit coverage for older folks with medical problems? Why are there so many chemical toxins in our food and water supply that is destroying entire generations of male fertility? Why are they trying to make new housing in California into supercities where the people live like rats in cages? The list goes on. The anwsers are terrifying. Yes Virginia, there is a NWO and you my little serf are not part of it. Lets face it, only when millions are freezing and starving to death will the revolution begin. Only by then it may be too late…

      Don’t see the point of your comments. Yes to be sure the notion of ‘planned’ reduction in humans may be abhorrent to some people. However, the planet has only finite resources and at some point the human race will reach a limit and ‘nature’ will take over as it does with all populations that grow beyond the available resources to support them. That will be reality. Therefore, starvation, the collapse of civil society, wars will will be inevitable and it will not take any ‘planning’ for that to happen. There will be too many people and not enough resources. The other point is that we are crap at sharing. Don’t see fat arse Americans (or anybody else in the West) willing giving up their living standards and resources to share with others.

    Perhaps looking up and watching chemtrails being plastered all over our skies (world wide) will help one ubnderstand how serious the globalists are.. 3x the toxic amount of barrium.. over 200x the toxic level of aluminum along with microbes, viruses..all being dropped on the public, not to mention genosides that do not even make the daily news. This NWO is a fait accompli in their eyes. Lets see what happens in Chicago this weekend..falseflag event causing many injuries and deaths…good possibility.Kind of like 9-11, predicted to happen and carried out just like the photo on the 5 dollar bill said it would be.

    • Sunshine

      Most aren’t paying attention as they are too DISTRACTED by not very meaningful left/right politics and/or the latest nonsense in scandle journalism. In other words can’t see the forest for the trees are in the way. Everybodies in their own little universe trying to keep track of their own lives all the while being bombarded by media at every turn.
      While the big picture is right before their very eyes to see. And besides, the idea that certain entities would deliberately interfere and disrupt the natural rhythm of the earth’s climate is just too egregious-heineous for people to accept at first. It’s not until they start paying attention to the skies and the results of high in the sky jets and other odd anomoly aircraft and researching on their own does what’s going on begin to unfold.
      The news stations and the weather reports on the evening news won’t let on.

      However; in case the reader wonders why those days of true blue skies and warm sunshine are now the exception as I have curiously wondered since the “global warming” scare now known as climate change inception,
      a meteorologist offers an explanation on the difference between a clear blue sky and a light scattered one laden with aerosols.
      “…In an aerosol and or water vapor laden sky, visible light wavelengths have been scattered more or less equally, resulting in a pale blue or whitish sky…”

      Usually water laden skies precipitate, you could smell it, feel the rain/snow getting ready to come down. No longer the case. Instead lingering stagnant aerosols blocking out the suns rays for days on are the rule. “haze” was usually a summer thing, notably followed by thunderstorms. hazy crazy days of summer if anyone remembers the tune..
      And if you’re old enough to remember the tune, you’re old enough to know that it’s just not right.

      Truly, it escapes me how the relationship between the alledged enemy of earth and man, carbon dioxide and blocking out the suns health giving light spectrum, aka solar radiation management is anything more than disruptive and destructive.
      I don’t think the world will begin to right itself until this weather manipulation program is scrapped.
      And that’s not even getting into how the manipulation of sunlight is affecting all living things…rickets, vitamin D deficiencies, lack of flowering for starters..

  • Nam Marine

    Simple solution. ************** all the Elite! Then the problem goes away for good!





    I agree with the elites. I think people should stop reproducing, but for much different reasons. People should stop reproducing because they should want to do it, not because of some nefarious plan that forces them to stop. What sane, logical, and rational human being would want to bring children into the world as it currently exists?

    It’s not as if the reproducing population has done anything to make the world a better place for the children that they bring into it. If you are a democrat, a republican, a liberal, a conservative, a libertarian, a card carrying member of the other -isms, or a religious fanatic you have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. So why would anyone who falls into the above categories would want to bring more children into this place where the only future that their children will have is economic and social suffering and lingering death?

  • laura m.

    If people breed like rats, then go on welfare and food stamps to feed their kids, they shouldn’t breed. It creates generational slackers. In other words, don’t breed ’em if ya can’t feed ’em. Kids are expensive and with the high divorce rates, best not to breed at guar. of an ideal family life in this day and time..women ditch men and men ditch women. Grandparents (suckers) end up raising their grand kids from irresponsible parents.

  • Brontemilan

    Only an idiot Christian would believe there are too many people in the world.

    • This has nothing to do with being a Christian, or a Muslim, or an atheist.

      Actually, that’s not totally true… the elite who want to eliminate 6 Billion people, worship Lucifer and they will move the world towards a one-world religion when the economy collapses and they take control.

      Sounds like you’ll fit right in with their new world order. :-P

  • darklite

    Good stuff! Thought the article itself is intriguing, I’m particularly impressed by the range of intelligent responses. While reading the article, I couldn’t help but sympathize with goals of those who want to impose population control. To be objective, I’m not sure if these sympathies are due to social conditioning or common sense.

    Though none of us desires to be the first to embark on the cattle-cars, you can’t help but wonder if our collective species understands or accepts the sacrifices that would be required to minimize the damage we’re doing to this planet. So, instead of insisting that we’re each endowed with the right to pursue our own needs at the expense of others and the environment, maybe we should do some serious reflection on the consequences of our individual life-styles and objectives. As we’re not willing to make population control the issue of our times, then it may be necessary for others to do so, on behalf of future generations.

  • Gay Veteran

    The current population is due to many factors: better sanitation, better genetically improved crops, fertilizer (& pesticides/herbicides), etc.

    But we’re bumping into limits on our ability to improve crops, and Peak Oil will make fertilizer (& pesticides/herbicides) more and more expensive. So no, the human population cannot expand indefinitely.

    • The elite control the GMO crops and RoundUp pesticides via Monsanto, so it’s their fault that the population is increasing.

      Peak Oil is a lie perpetrated by the elite, so that they can keep prices and profits high.

      There’s enough oil in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico to make us energy independent for a long time, but tapping it would make gas prices fall dramatically.

      What they should do is blow up a well to cause a huge oil spill, so that Obama can shut down offshore drilling. Oh wait, they already did that… :-P

  • Cleo

      You are what you eat… (uh oh, may have pushed the envelope a bit too far)

  • Garyt

    What is it that makes right wingers to fail to recognize that we live in an interconnected world with finite resources, becoming ever more so as the third world countries become wealthier and the population explodes. The reality IS that we have more people on this planet right now than the planet’s ability to sustain it, no matter how many GMO seeds Monsanto may develop or what we in this gluttonous obese nation may think.

    When half of all children died young through most of human existence, it made sense for there to be big families to enable the economic well being of the community. But, that is not the case today. I would dare say that if Christians want all babies to live, then care for them and the moms as the early Christian church did. I dare you to take them into your own homes and help provide for them. Yet, you condemn government which has been forced to do the job you fail to do.

    While I treasure all life as sacred including children, We will not continue to survive if we keep doing what we are doing and expecting different results (the definition of insanity). We may be a religious nation, no doubt, but we are also a spiritually ignorant, materialistic, and selfish nation that fails to see that we are connected to all life.

    Its time for the extreme self-righteous Christians of the world to grow up past self-centeredness and act like Jesus asked us to. God did not create earth for humans to plunder, he created it for ALL of his creation. Manifest Destiny is a lie. We are given a command to caretake creation, not destroy it. We are the only species stupid and arrogant enough to destroy creation to such an extreme that we threaten our own survival.

    • Gary2

      I often wondered at all the anti abortion folks who after the kid is born cut every program that would help the kid. The best is when Christians cut WIC.

      • laura m.

        Gary 2: WIC is for slackers that breed ’em and can’t feed ’em. Most people now days would be better off getting sterilized real young, since most are unfit to raise kids and divorce rates are thru the roof.

        • Gary2

          I agree to a point–it is not the kids fault that their parent (I use the term loosely here) brought them into the world.

          The reality is that they (the kids) ARE here and need assistance.

          You are right about the sterilized part.

    Can you take a look into this and perhaps “promote” you own version of the events in a future article? Many “alternative” media sites are covering the situation.

    It’s natural for all to want want to create utopia on earth and everyone has their own version of what that is. Most spend their life chasing an illusion of ‘if I only had…’ I would be happy. The truth is, as much as you would like to think you are in control of your life, you are not. Ask yourself, what or who will I hold on to when the doctor tells me I have cancer? That 401k you trusted in is all but gone to pay medical bills and you may loose everything because of mounting debt. Suddenly you want to know, is this all there is? What is the truth? If you haven’t, please read the Bible and earnestly search for the truth. Your eternal life really matters more. GOD bless.

  • jim

    What is most funny about the theory, that the Elites wish to greatly cull the common masses, is that lower densities of people allows for more freedom. It is only when people are “connected” through crowding that they can be easily controlled. History bears this out, which is why the Elites always try to get rid of outbound folks and corral them all into cities (like cattle into pens).

    If 95% of the Human Race was obliterated, it would be absolutely impossible for any group to take charge. The survivors would be too spread for them to be controlled, and what is most ironic, is the Elites would have to fend for themselves. These inbred, lowest of life forms are not capable of taking care of themselves, so they would all starve to death (after some good ole boy cannibalistic fun).

  • Ted Turner once said that “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95 percent decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

  • The joke is that the elite own most of the companies that are the worst environmental polluters… :-P

  • Colin

    I believe that our world is and will have crises in food and water and climate and biosphere – the very systems that sustain us. Studies of other species have shown that overpopulation has a negative effect on the environment. This correlation between overpopulation and stress on the environment has been in the scientific literature since the late 18th century.

    I believe Michael that you don’t believe in family planning and that I believe that are against Planned Parenthood and would support the defunding of this agency. I have heard that these agencies do help women, especially poor women, and empower them to make choices they wouldn’t take out of ignorance or fear.

    I see that you are continuing to disparage the Royal Society. Are you against science and math, as many of your conservative brethren do, and do you place your place in faith? I wonder how much value faith will have when our planet’s life support systems crash.

  • mondobeyondo

    Let them kill me. I’m sure that heaven is a much better place than this devil controlled planet. There is nothing we normal people can do to stop them. The devil is there master and they are his slaves. The problem is the elite are all devil worshipers as well as most goverments on earth.

    • Last time I checked Kierie, Jesus has power over the devil, and will return to destroy him. In the mean time, Jesus is working through His followers to set the captives free.

      You’re right, normal people can’t do much to stop the devil and his workers, but people that abide in the Holy Spirit can avail much.

      Psalm 91 is a great passage that speaks of us being protected by the Lord and prevailing over the serpent.

      So unless you want to be accused of being a wicked, lazy servant that just buried the one talent they were given, I would suggest that you get to work to bear fruit for the master of the vineyard. For the fields are ripe for harvest.

    • Well Chad, you will get your wish. The elite worship Lucifer, who hates Christians too.

      And when the elite implement their one-world financial system and government, they will also seek to force people to worship their god.

      And true Christians will refuse to worship the image of the beast, or his name or take his mark. And the beast will make war with the saints.

      I would rather be killed for my love of Jesus and spend eternity with Him, than to reject Him and spend eternity with Lucifer.

      The fair part is that Jesus gives you a choice to worship Him or not. Lucifer is not so gracious. Good luck with that :-P

    If they are so worried about the population, maybe, just maybe, instead of advocating premarital sex and telling people to use protection (no one does), tell people to not have sex until married; that way there would be less children born out of wedlock. I am extremely pro-life, but the loose sexuality in this day in age is appalling. I have a friend whose girlfriend cheated on him because he was a true Bible believing Christian, and wouldn’t screw her on the first date. If they hate me so much because I’m breathing, guess what *GASP* they are too!

      • A concerned young AmeriCan Patriot

        Gary 2: when your parents are getting divorced because both accuse the other of alcohol abuse and cheating because of that alcohol abuse, you tend to have a different opinion on matters like this. Also, my mom could have died from an std she got from her boyfriend while he was wearing a condom. My mom was talking to my cousin about her college times (my cousin is going to college next year) and I overheard that. Never regretted accidentally walking in on a conversation more.The only 100% way to avoid stds and out of wedlock pregnancies is abstinence. “Don’t judge until you know me.”

  • Most reasonable and sincere environmentalists would be absolutely horrified if they had any idea of the real “product” that they’ve been *tricked* into pushing. If people are so willing to sacrifice truth at the altar of their beliefs, they shouldn’t expect much of a positive outcome from their endeavors… For those who still feel that truth matters, may I suggest reading Anton Chaitkin’s “Treason in America”. It’s kind of a tough read getting started but it definitely puts environmentalism into historical context. And speaking of history, can anyone guess why members of a death cult (i.e. “Malthusian”) secret society popularly known as “Skull & Bones” would be so interested in founding the American Historical Association (AHA) in 1884? Hmm? — the Postman (

  • sharonsj

    First of all, it’s not their planet, it’s our planet. And we are destroying it at an alarming rate. Since we have 9 billion people on it right now, and we can’t feed and take care of the folks already here, how can we take care of even more?

    And as climate change makes food impossible, and as the oil and gas companies make drinking water toxic, how do you expect to survive? And while the ecosystems are being destroyed, ever wonder why we have such a high rate of autism? of cancer? of diabetes? Hell, it’s better living–or maybe dying–thanks to chemistry.

    You know, the point of a lot of this is not so much to lower the population but to squeeze out our last pennies to pay for doctors and big pharma.

  • Anonymous Amobea

    Okay, overpopulation is a myth? You just created myths about this “myth”! First of all, I am asexual, which means I was born not attracted to either gender. (And, yes, I got my hormones checked, and it’s fine. And don’t give me the “late bloomer” crap!) It has given me a different view point on society. Now, I am still pretty young, but I have a 4.0 gradepoint average, so, not to be arrogant, but I’m not an idiot. Now, I think the world is overpopulated. And no, I don’t not want to go around killing people. (Not literally, anyway.) I do not believe we are causing climate change, and I think it’s a load of crap, the Earth has been changing temperature and climate for years, and I live in Alaska, where, if anything, it’s colder than ever. But I do know for a fact, if people keep crappin’ babies like they are now, we’re gonna be in big trouble in the future. The way things are going, food is going to run out at some point. Fossil fuels are also on the decline. (Although there’s more than most people think. Companies like Shell can drill, find plenty of fuel, and act like they’re out to get more money out of high prices.)My point is, we’re running out of room and resources on this planet. Not to mention we’ve made many species of animals go completely extinct already. I think there SHOULD be atleast a cap on how many children you can have. Honestly, I wish alot of idiots were sterile so they can’t create more dumb idiots. Call me an extremist liberal bla bla bla, but I’m Independent. Personally, I think either side is completely batcrap INSANE. And if you’re the one calling me a commiter of a genocide, just look up “Sweetwater Texas Snake Roundup”. Who’s the mass murderer now? (Not to mention people who kill small animals are more likely to become murderers later in life.) Now, I want you to look at this like adults, open your mind, and take another person’s viewpoint. I do it all the time. And yes, I tried your view point, which I DO respect, but absoloutly do not agree on. Again, being asexual has given me a very rare view point that less than 1% of the population of the Earth has. And you know what that has shown me? People will use any excuse to…umm…how do I put this non-disgustingly? Uh, “love” each other. (I guess that IS what they call it these days.) Anyway, but this causes problems. Just look at the extreme case of Africa. Women have virtually no rights in many countries. In many cases, they are FORCED to have kids. Not only being very wrong in itself, this causes crippling overpopulation. Now, this is 2012. The 21st century. We should leaving this crapola behind instead of acting like freaking preverted gorrilas. I know you’re worried about your freedom. Truth is pretty much everyone in the world, even deomocaratic European countries are worried about freedom. But there just has to rules popping out human beings. And, sorry, I AM an Atheist, and I think if the person isn’t just being lazy and irresponsible, and they SERIOUSLY can’t take care of a child, they should be able to get an abortion. For one, the “child” isn’t even developed enough to feel pain, and two it’s better than a LIFE full of misery and poverty. And by the way, no, I’m not a devil worshipper. I come from a mostly Christian family. (But my parents let me believe whatever I think is right.) I think youshould have the right to believe or not believe what you want. I respect all religions. But, I have a church across the street, in a suburban/slightly rural neighborhood, trying to build a school. Just feet away from my front yard. Our wells in about a mile radius will go dry. The neighbor kids get off where they’re building it. It will cause much more traffic, surely causing accidents. But the chuch members have been brainwashed, the Planning and Zoning Board have been bribed. Now it’s being built. And people label EVERYONE in the entire neighborhood “devil worshippers” and think we’re undermining the “path to God”. So please, don’t give me a lecture about “God” when I’m not going to have running water until we spend tens of thousands of dollars drilling a new well that may or may not work. Sorry to get so off track, I just need to make a point. I just want you to please open your minds, and try thinking like me. It’s okay if you don’t agree with me, but I just want you to try.
    Thank You.

      Wa-wait, Homosexuality is depopulating the planet? DO YOUR FREAKING RESEARCH!!! They’re not forcing people into gayness! It’s how your born! Okay, okay, I will explain the process to you. In your brain, there is this signal like a switch. There are two ways on that switch. I’ll take a male for example. (Becuase I am one, and becuase most people on here probably are, too.) One goes towards women (Heterosexual) and one goes towards men. (Homosexual) Both can also be on at the same time, (Bisexual) or in my case, the switch isn’t on in the first place. (Asexual) You are born with your switch setting. When puberty happens, you figure out which way it’s pointed. There’s no such thing as “wanting to be gay”, or whatever. You are born with it. There’s nothing you can do to turn any other way. (Although in some rare cases, it can switch around later in life, but it isn’t likely at all.) Now, your lesson is complete. Make sure to come back tommorow to learn basic math! (The world’s population can NOT EVER fit in Texas.)

    I hope they finally find a way to make a large percentage of the world population infertile. If I could push the button, I would’ve done it a long time ago. We are capable of extra-ordinary things, but we should also respect our place amongst all other creatures. I will not be breeding anymore. If they come out with a nice infertility vaccine, I’ll be first in line to get it. Imagine a world you feel necessary, you don’t feel like a rat, nature is respected and huge parts of the world becoming national parks… I am prepared to die for that.

    • meep meep

      they already have safe procedures for infertility. just ask your doctor. i agree that people should not reproduce unless they are prepared to be really stellar parents, and i myself have chosen never to have children, but it becomes a thorny issue once you force infertility on others. who gets to reproduce, and who doesn’t? whose rightful decision is that? should it be a privilege that only the genetically fittest (of all cultures) or the historically oppressed (for example, people related to the aboriginal people of the americas and australia) should be afforded? i wish there was a universal way to make pregnancy impossible for teenagers or anyone being coerced into sex, but unfortunately for women, taxpayers, and misogynistic senators making ignorant statements, there is not.

  • Stella

    I agree with the comments. The solution to the overpopulation problem would be 1. a tax on the number of babies you have and 2. make male birth control available and make it free to all guys. I’m certain that half of the children born today are unwanted and I think if men had more power to make their own reproductive choices (aside from abstaining altogether) this would be a huge help in population control, and the increase in quality of life for us all.

Just to show all of us over breeders who want to stick around without your narrow minded views of the world and it’s issues how it’s done. Why is it that the ‘elites’ of the world are allowed more than one child. While us ‘commoners’ are told it’d be best to stick with one? I have another question. When all of us commoners have been bumped off. Who are going to be toiling and working for the ‘elitists’ so they can keep their empires and business going, keeping them in the lap of luxury, living in their houses that could house 10 families, using enough gas and electric to power a small town for a year, flying around in their private jets and consuming the worlds precious resources, creating ‘carbon footprints’ the size of Goliath’s foot? Here’s a hint. They won’t be doing it all themselves.

      They think robots will do it. They will invent AI and then the elite will become the house pets of the AI. What goes around comes around.

    The current state of the economy all ties into this fraud of overpopulation. Everyone family on the globe could have a house and an acre of land and it could all fit in an area the size of Texas.

    There are test for everything, why not for this two! People like you, middle age thinkers are destroying our country

      Hitler thought it was a good idea, too.

    WOW the ignorance on this subject is truly stunning! “One experiment is worth a thousand expert opinions.” We literally have thousands of such “experiments” when it comes to population reduction. When you look back through history in EVERY case where populations have dropped the misery caused to the surviving humans is commensurate to the scale of that decrease. The current poster child for the asses, I mean advocates, of population control (China) is tragically destined for heartaches that will make them envy the recent (Past 20 year) troubles of Japan as a blessing to yearn for! The drop in Chinese birth rates dwarfs that of Japans and, as I pointed out earlier, Chinas miseries will be of commensurate scale.

    The perfect vehicle for population control is homosexuality. The focus on gay tolerance goes much deeper than just supporting of homosexuality. It is the elitist attempt at population control at the most basic level, our being endoctrinated into accepting alternative lifestyles as normal.

    If anyone is truly concerned about this planet then they will step up to put an end to the crap we keep making, buying, eating, etc., not focusing entirely on reducing population. If we stopped pumping man made toxins directly into our environment by means of oil powered transport, chemically laden so-called food, and millions of pounds of plastic junk, that alone would save our home. We should be learning to use easily replenish-able resources of the earth, not, for example, buying clothing dipped in a toxic stew. We should live organically, create less waste, recycle, and eat real food that grows. We need to be mindful of everything. We need to create more farmers, we need to make things by hand, we need to value each other and labor together to create a place worth living in. Not one where we dump our garbage in the ocean to forget about it. We created this mess together and we have participated it in, now we need to stop our destructive ways and clean it up. That is the answer.

      I’d go one step further and say that the people who are the proponents for depopulation for the sake of the environment, are the very people who own the mega corporations over producing throw away products, suppressing new technology like water powered cars that were invented decades ago and blaming the cause of everything on the debt slaves of the world who have no control over these issues. The worst part about it all is the ignorant brainwashed masses actually listen to and get sucked in by their “overpopulation” propaganda.

      That’s a good start, but it won’t be enough. Population control is also necessary.

  • roo

    If no one has kids who will take care of the seniors?

    • heilbama

      lol Good long-range thinking

  • Tamara Bendu

    The elites are not consistent in their arguments which makes people question their true motives. They speak out of both sides of their mouths. They say that our economies are built on continued growth and import immigrants they say to boost economies in the West with negative population growth. Then they also say that we need to decrease population growth to save the planet. If growth is an issue don’t you have to tackle our economic system which is built on growth? Of course they benefit from that same economic system. So people conclude it is a power grab and while they may have genuine concerns for the planet they are essentially concerned about saving resources for themselves at our expense.

    “Isn’t that sick?” In reference to the World Bank imposing conditions on lending. No, it’s not “sick.” Other people have the right to place conditions on lending us money (or other resources). If the conditions seem unreasonable to us, we have the right not to take the money.

    Yes, human population growth is the single biggest threat to ecological integrity and a major source of conflict among us humans. Even with significant behavioral changes, the planet will not be able to sustain 8, 9, 10+ billion humans, given our basic nature. Just because this assertion is unattractive doesn’t make it false.

    Your religious beliefs shouldn’t dictate rational policy. You’re free to believe whatever mythologies you want. You are not free to impose those beliefs on others.
