More than 11,000 scientists from 153 countries have declared a climate emergency, warning in a new report that “untold human suffering” is “unavoidable” without drastic action. Their blueprint to save humanity is familiar:

World’s Top Climate Gathering May Have Found a New Home: Madrid

  World’s Top Climate Gathering May Have Found a New Home: Madrid Spain has swooped in with an offer to host the world’s largest climate summit after Chile canceled it in the face of widespread riots. © Bloomberg Visitors look out across the city skyline from an observation area on the roof of the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, on Monday, April 29, 2019. The invitation to move the United Nations’ COP25 conference to Madrid may save the event, scheduled for December. UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said she hoped the conference’s board would consider Spain’s offer as soon as possible.

Save the Planet . What’s the story? Scientists estimate that planet Earth is home to 8.7 million species and over 7 billion people. That’s a lot of life being supported by one giant ball in space! We must be careful to take care of our planet , in order for it to take care of all the people

Save the Planet is a registered charity (number 1128140) in England and Wales, UK. Our global vision is to ensure to have a better quality of life for the future generations without making any compromise. Building a sustainable future in which people live in harmony with nature.

1) Stop economic growth.

2) Stop people from having so many babies.

These days, it’s passé to note that nothing has improved the material well-being of mankind more than capitalism fueled by affordable energy. But even more precisely, never has capitalism improved more lives than it has during the 40 years that neo-Malthusians have been warning about impending dystopia. By nearly every quantifiable measure — including many environmental ones — children today are living in a safer, wealthier, and healthier world today.

Yet, these 11,000 scientists demand “a transformative change for humanity,” explained ecologist Bill Ripple, one of experts spearheading the effort. After all, if history has taught us anything, it’s that technocratic efforts that compel society to take on “immediate and drastic transformative changes” never backfire.

Meijer’s Black Friday 2019 ad: Cheap TVs, AirPods, and video game console deals

  Meijer’s Black Friday 2019 ad: Cheap TVs, AirPods, and video game console deals Meijer’s Black Friday 2019 ad is out, and we’re looking at 86 pages of deals that will kick off at various times during Black Friday week. Actual Black Friday doorbusters and discounts will begin at 6:00 AM on Thanksgiving, but the retail chain will also host early deals all week long, including discounts that are going to be valid only on Saturday. Posted online by BFAds, the ad is divided into three sections as follows: The first 48 pages include offers that go live on Thursday and Friday; pages 49 through 56 list Saturday deals, while the last 30 pages include sales that will be available to buyers all week long.

Frankie Mullin: Doctors should be encouraging people to have smaller families for the sake of the environment, says GP.

You can help save the Earth by taking shorter showers, turning the faucet off when you're brushing your teeth, and doing laundry less often, which will conserve water. You'll also be helping if you use less electricity by turning lights and appliances off when you're not using them.

Basically, these scientists are advocating for the Green New Deal: a collection of ludicrous solutions wholly unconcerned with economic tradeoffs or political reality. The plan treats nature and people as moral equals, imagining them in an apartment-dwelling, plant-based-food-eating, bicycle-riding society where well-being is administered “by prioritizing basic needs and reducing inequality” — which doesn’t sound creepy or authoritarian at all.

That’s fine, because it’s not going to happen. And while it’s worth pointing out that modern environmentalists embrace destructive economic ideas, we shouldn’t forget they also embrace some of the ugliest ideas about humans, as well.

The population-control language in the scientists’ plan is hardly new. The Left doesn’t even flinch at anti-humanist arguments these days. Major publications regularly run pieces that argue children are a burden on society: “The Case for Not Being Born,” “Science proves kids are bad for Earth. Morality suggests we stop having them,” “Would Human Extinction Be a Tragedy?” “Having children is one of the most destructive things you can to do the environment, say researchers,” and so on.

Barack Obama’s respected “Science Czar,” John Holdren, once coauthored a book with Paul Ehrlich — who famously predicted that “hundreds of millions of people” would “starve to death” by the year 2000 — in which he theorized that mass sterilizations and forced abortions might help save the world from scarcity. Yet Holdren’s presence in the administration was often pointed to as proof that Democrats were the ones who embraced reality-based super-serious science policy.

Like Holdren before them, these 11,000 scientists from 153 countries say that the entire earth’s population of 7.5-plus billion people “must be stabilized — and, ideally, gradually reduced — within a framework that ensures social integrity.” Now, I’m not sure what doomsayers mean by “social integrity,” but the short paragraph on population is larded up with euphemistic language about abortion and population control:

There are proven and effective policies that strengthen human rights while lowering fertility rates and lessening the impacts of population growth on GHG emissions and biodiversity loss. These policies make family-planning services available to all people, remove barriers to their access and achieve full gender equity, including primary and secondary education as a global norm for all, especially girls and young women.

What's the best thing you can do to help save the environment? For Anna, a cycling instructor and writer living in Bath, it's to have fewer children. She has chosen not to have any at all.

It saves you time, and it saves trees. If every American did this, 2.3 million tons of wood could be spared annually, and 3.9 billion pounds of greenhouse gases (directly to Get instantly ecosmarter. Need an environmentally correct dry cleaner? Want to know if your hairspray will hurt the planet ?

There are approximately 80 million new human beings being produced yearly. That’s more than 200,000 every day. Secondary education for girls in developing nations may well bring down birth rates in the long run. Then again, women with secondary educations will one day be interested in purchasing cars, houses, air conditioners (always set at sensible temperatures) and all the other conveniences of modernity. In the United States, women have already attained “gender equity,” “human rights” and full access to “family-planning services,” and yet they live in a nation that is supposedly one of the worst offenders of ecological decency on the planet. Sadly, children, as a total percentage of the population in U.S., now make up an all-time low of 24 percent, and yet we’re responsible for 16 percent of the world’s carbon emissions.

“It is basically a scientific consensus that the lives of our children are going to be very difficult,” Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez recently claimed, “and it does lead young people to have a legitimate question: Is it OK to still have children?”

It’s, of course, always legitimate to question whether you want children. It’s tragic, however, that so many young Americans, many of whom probably have the means and desire to have kids, would give up the opportunity because of their quasi-religious belief in apocalyptic climate change and overpopulation.

Mothers-to-be fear for their unborn in smog-choked Delhi

  Mothers-to-be fear for their unborn in smog-choked Delhi Heavily pregnant Rachel Gokavi spends most days shut away in her New Delhi home, desperate to shield her unborn child from the toxic air blamed for soaring miscarriage rates and infant deaths. At a recent pre-natal class in the Indian capital, Gokavi and other expectant mothers shared their feelings of helplessness and anger at having to breathe poisonous air day in and out. "I always keep the balcony door closed and don't go out as much. I fear there could be breathing issues when the baby is born," Gokavi, 26, told AFP.

Poll: Should People Have Fewer Kids to Save the Planet ? Quiz: What's Your Environmental Footprint? Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday (So You Get 1 More Hour of Sleep).

13 May 2011. UPDATE: Due to this BS thing where I can do everything with this blog except publish a post, I have moved home to Wordpress: http However, I also remember being told at school in the sixties that we should limit our population growth to save the planet and humanity.

“Overpopulation” is routinely cited by journalists — who often live in the densest, yet miraculously, the wealthiest, places on earth — as a problem. Yet, if density were itself causing human suffering, Monaco, as Nicholas Eberstadt once pointed out, with its 16,000 people per square kilometer, would be a far bleaker place than Bangladesh, with its 1,000 people per square kilometer.

On a personal level, having children is likely to be the most fulfilling event of your life. Children transform adults into more selfless, responsible people. They can give meaning and purpose to life. On another level, population decline is economic decline. Children renew and replenish society, and help foster healthier communities.

Having more children, as Tyler Cowen argued, also creates market demand for solutions and boosts intellectual capacity. How many great scientists, musicians, inventors, parents, were lost during China’s despicable one-child policy? And don’t fool yourself: that’s where this kind of anti-humanist thinking can lead. Because what these scientists really want, and can’t say, is that they’d like women to be both poor and childless.
