Climate change means no kids
new report by international humanitarian organization DARA finds that climate change could kill up to 5 million people in the next 10 years—and most of them are children under the age of 5 in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. This predicted increase in mortality isn't due to Hollywood-style tsunamis or apocalyptic winters. Instead, the killers are much more ordinary: malaria, diarrhea, and malnutrition.
Uh, none of these disease deaths are from "climate change". All of them are due to poverty, and can be cured or treated with local governments cleaning up the environment and providing clean water, protein supplements and WHO Rehydration fluid.
Of course, one way to help the planet—and the families most impacted by the planet's health—is to bear fewer kids in the first place. As Julia Whitty wrote in "The Last Taboo," overpopulation is a huge climate change driver that's rarely discussed—until this week. During the UN-sponsored climate talks in Cancun, Mexico, media mogul Ted Turner suggested such radical ideas as one-child policies and monetary rewards for not reproducing. Turner was quickly shut down by former Irish president Mary Robinson, who said, "If we do it the wrong way, we can divide the world...A lot of people in the climate world could communicate this very badly."
Translation: Yes, we agree, but we have to push this agenda stealthily, or people might be upset.
Indeed, if you read the entire article, you will see that depopulation of poor people is indeed on their agenda.
