Gore wants to save the world from global warming by “fertility management”

June 22, 2011

Read this from the daily caller.

“One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women,” Gore said. “You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.”

Regarding education, Gore knows that the more educated women are the fewer children they will have. From the Weekly Standard:

“One of the best predictors of fertility is education: The more educated a woman is, the fewer children she will have. The total fertility rate for American women without a high school diploma is 2.45. With each subsequent level of educational attainment, fertility falls—it drops to 1.6 for women with a graduate degree. One of the drivers of our fertility decline was the making of college de rigueur for middle-class women.”

But Gore either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the damage that low fertility rates has on the world. Old people rely on young people to care for them in their age – whether that help comes from the collective (social security, medicaid etc) or from children. The less offspring people have the fewer young people there will be to take care of the old.

A declining population also crushes economies. Most economies rely on continual economic growth to fund governments and pay debts. Wealth is created by people. The fewer people you have the less wealth is created. Consider Japan. Again from the Weekly Standard:

Japan’s demographic momentum kept its population slowly increasing during the late 1990s and early 2000s; in 2004, it peaked at 127.84 million. And then the contraction began. In 2008, Japan lost 145,000 people and by 2025, it will have lost 6 million. By 2050, it will have shed an additional 17 million people, leaving its total population around 100 million and falling. And a declining population is necessarily an aging population, meaning that you’re faced with both a decline in demand for goods and services (because the population is getting smaller) and at the same time a labor shortage (because so many of the remaining people are too old to work). In 2050, the largest five-year cohort in Japan is expected to be people aged 75-79. While health care will likely be a growth sector, this is not a recipe for a robust economy.

Now, what worries me about Gore is not that he has such an opinion. I remember my public school teachers back in 3rd grade (in liberal Ann Arbor) saying similar things. What bothers me is that he ties it to a collective good that he believes needs regulation to be protected. Gore has advanced with great passion caps on emissions and ‘green house gases’. Does anyone doubt that Gore would be open to caps on the number of children we can have?  Collectivism is never content with letting people consider the facts and make their own decisions.

  1. I’m afraid it’s not about saving the planet or human civilization, it’s about control, money and power of others ……. it’s about ‘Agenda 21’ (Agenda for the 21st Century). To use an analogy, Agenda 21 is simply an upgrading of the farm from ‘ranch’ to ‘battery’. In the eyes of the people who control Gore, we are the livestock – and they are the farmers.

    The globalist think tank ‘The Club of Rome’ (of which elite gopher Al Gore was and probably still is a member) published a book called ‘The First Global Revolution’ in 1991 which states (asterisks added for emphasis):

    “In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, ***we came up with the idea*** that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together…../…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. ***The real enemy then is humanity itself***.”

    Given that organizations like the Club of Rome practically gave birth to the modern day (pseudo) environmental/ AGW / CO2 / population demonization movement it is interesting that the mainstream media never mentions it.

    It’s also interesting that the mainstream media and political leaders around the world suddenly started embracing being ‘green’ (in the most shallow ‘pop concert’ kind of way) in the early 90’s – when this agenda was put into motion via the UN etc.

    In this age of technology and the threatening (to the elite) personal empowerment that comes with it, (fake) environmentalism is to be the new Godless, high tech religion of the 21st century. Carbon taxes will be paid to the elite and their well paid ‘experts’ who will preach to the masses about how only by embracing a reduced standard of living, poorer diet, more state control, no rights or freedoms or choices etc etc will stop the climate from getting angry and vengeful and punishing us.

    Of course caring for the environment and not wasting energy and resources is all common sense. But as with so many religions throughout history there are always those who seek to hijack worthy ‘no brainer’ causes and use them to further their own agendas – usually money, power and control over others.

    If anyone thinks their ‘leaders’ and their minions are God fearing types think again.

    Some more video links (youtube). Well worth watching IMHO.

    This last video sums it all up brilliantly.

    Hi Anne – thanks for reminding me about Al Gore’s observation on the inconvenient truth i.e. that it is people who are responsible for their own futures and that we have to face some difficult decisions if we are to grow up, face the music and save the earth from us …
    may your god bless you and the other billions of human individuals – http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ – and steadily decreasing diversity of other his creatures with whom we share the blue planet… fertility management is but one answer to thousands of questions which can no longer be left unanswered… what are yours?
    P.S. Mr Corbett seems like a nice man, if a little opinionated but I just can’t see what you are trying to say above: This last video sums “it” “all” up “brilliantly” – what do you mean?
