The Daily Caller on Al Gore:
The global warming debate has always been a touchy one for both sides, and when the world’s top global warming activist is talking about the size of population and how that contributes to the choices societies make, it might be worth taking note.
In an appearance Monday in New York City, former Vice President Al Gore, prominently known for his climate change activism, took on the subject of population size and the role of society in controlling it to reduce pollution.
He offered some ideas about what might be done for females in the name of stabilizing population growth. (h/t Chris Horner via wattsupwiththat.com)
“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.
Gore couches his assertion that the mere existence of excess humans is destroying the environment in politically correct euphemisms by describing depopulation as 'empowering women'.
Depopulation schemes-- particularly abortion (forced and voluntary)-- has taken a gruesome toll on women. There are upwards of 100 million women and girls 'missing' in Asia, primarily because of sex-selective abortions and female infanticide.
Overpopulation hysteria doesn't 'empower women'. It kills women, by the tens of millions.
People aren't pollution. If Gore were really serious about saving the environment and protecting women, he would renounce overpopulation junk-science and convert one of his multi-million dollar homes to a forest.
Think of the girls he'd save.
