Glancing through my RSS feeds I read this at Sempa Vita.
“Women with access to reproductive health services … have lower fertility rates that contribute to slower growth in greenhouse gas emissions.”
Wait a minute.
In develping countries, much of the population grows it’s own food via means that the greenies would describe as “sustainable”.
But without sons to drive the oxen, what do people do to get their ground farmed?
Might they just go out and obtain a tractor perhaps?
We read further.
While the UNFPA acknowledged it had no actual evidence of a connection between population increase and climate change, the report insists there is no doubt that “people cause climate change” through CO2 emissions.
“The linkages between population and climate change are in most cases complex and indirect.” Nevertheless, the report said, “As the growth of population, economies and consumption outpaces the Earth’s capacity to adjust, climate change could become much more extreme and conceivably catastrophic.”
Translation: “Well, that’s what we wish were the case – it suits our agenda”.
I’ll say it a thousand times, climate change activism is about politics, not science.
