Couples who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the British government’s green adviser warned.
Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming. He says political leaders and green campaigners should stop dodging the issue of environmental harm caused by an expanding population.
A report by the commission, to be published next month, will say that governments must reduce population growth through better family planning.
Regardless of which ever way the evidence points for the human origin of climate change, I am personal convinced that the Al Gores of the world, like the crackpot above, are ideologues who want to use this scare to mandate their liberal Big Brother agenda. Only the government can save us from destroying the planet, they say: the perfect pretext for bigger government, more control and the use of coercive power to manage the opposition.
Far fetched? Look at the recommendation of the commission above: “governments must reduce population growth through better family planning.” I don’t know what it is like in Great Britain, but here in the United States the government provides “better family planning” by mandating abortion on demand and by turning a blind eye to the abuse of women and girls.
We start with criminalizing incandecent light bulbs and mandating untested alternative fuel solutions and end by coercing those who have traditional values and want large families.
