 POPULATION CONTROL an Eco – Apocalypse

The 2008 Revision of the official United Nations population estimates, the world population is projected to reach 7 billion in late 2011, and surpass 9 billion people by 2050. Their concern is that we already have problems with this amount of people being continually fed now.

UN Secretary General U Thant back in 1969 stated: “the Members of the United Nations have perhaps ten years left in which to subordinate their ancient quarrels and launch a global partnership to curb the arms race, to improve the human environment, to defuse the population explosion, and to supply the required momentum to development efforts..” A computer model was formed and the conclusion was that exponential growth of population, production, and pollution could not continue.

The UN: “A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion.  At the more frugal European standard, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.” (“UNEP Global Assessment Report”, Phase One Draft, sec.9) 

If there is any catastrophe that would affect the world food supply it could change the population in the world dramatically by starvation.

The liberal media thrives on potential stories like these. Combine the concept of global warming (which was reversed, formerly global cooling when this was written) and you have a major newscast “There are ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portrend a drastic decline in food production - with serious political implications for just about every nation on earth. The drop in food production could begin quite soon... The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. (Newsweek, April 28, 1975).

There are those whom are considered on the cutting edge of science on these issues that have only doom and gloom to forecast without considering the advances in science to farm land. “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970's and 1980's hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now” (Paul Ehrlich ``The Population Bomb'' begins with this statement )

This vast tragedy, however, is nothing compared to the nutritional disaster that seems likely to overtake humanity in the 1970s (or, at the latest, the 1980s) ... A situation has been created that could lead to a billion or more people starving to death” (Paul Ehrlich, “The End of Affluence” (1974), p.21)

The late 1800s, the human population was approx. 1.6 billion. Many of the important influential environmentalists believe a world population between 500 million to at most 2 billion is more manageable because they do not think the earth can sustain this population growth. On April 5, 1994 the Los Angeles Times quoted Cornell University Professor David Pimentel, saying that, “The total world population should be no more than 2 billion rather than the current 5.6 billion.”

Wildlands Project Director Reed Noss: “The collective needs of non-human species must take precedence over the needs and desires of humans”

Ted Turner wants to see only 250-300 million people living, this of course includes him as a possibility of being removed, something few consider when they promote this A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” (Ted Turner (media mogul and United Nations advocate). (Ted Turner, as quoted by Donald McAlvany, The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, June 1996.) Recently Turner has become more catastrophic in his view. The year 2040 – or about then – will find the world's crops dead, most of the people in a similar state of decay, and those few left alive will be cannibals” (Ted Turner, founder of Turner Broadcasting and CNN and environmental activist).

Advisor to President for Science and Technology John Holdren in 1973 said that the U.S. population of 210 million at the time was too many, Holdren wanted to see near zero population growth before the year 2000.

The total world population should be not more than 2 billion, rather than the current 5.6 billion [in 1994].” (Cornell University professor David Pimentel, at the American Association for the Advancement of Science) 

They believe to have a sustainable economy it is necessary to eliminate the burdens on it by large population. Otherwise civilization can collapse.

Present executive director of the Millennium Institute, and author of the Global 2000 Report to the President Jimmy Carter; Gerald 0. Barney in the 1993 Parliament, Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions was its keynote speaker in the afternoon plenary session. He pointed out that in the next century the world's food supply (even with yield-increasing technologies) will not be able to sustain the human population's anticipated growth (upward to 24 billion). Barney predicted that unless we die to our old vision of progress (ever-increasing growth and prosperity) and start seeking the good of the Earth as a whole, the entire global community will “spiral downward into increasingly desperate poverty exacerbated by global environmental deterioration.” (“Global 2000 Revisited: What Shall We Do?”)

Earth First org. “does not accept a human-centered worldview of 'nature for people's sake.' industrialized civi­lization and its philosophy are anti-Earth, anti-woman and anti-liberty ... To put it simply, the Earth must come first.”

In other words nature and the animals have equal rights to humans.

New Age leaders have consistently taught that the earth is seriously overpopulated. The Organization “Friends of the Earth” has stated their position in agreement with others, “an earth population of 6 billion, already overburdened by 4 billion.” (Contance Cumbey, Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow).

Are we looking at a mass exterminations of humans in the worlds future under the reason of sustainability? This same extermination took place of the Jews but it was not called murder but a necessary “cleansing.” Death camps were disguised and renamed; they are already changing the terms and laws on these matters, one can hardly keep up with all the changes made.

An interesting side note to this is that spirit guides have been giving similar messages through their chosen vehicles on this subject.

The spirit Ramtha states “Everyone . . . whether he is starving, or crippled . . . has chosen his experience for the purpose of gaining from it ....” Why condemn the Holocaust? Every murdered Jew chose to be killed, and Hitler was merely undergoing a learning experience.”

As an example of the invested interest of spirits of the new age, we have John Randolph Price's spirit guide “Asher” who spoke to him regarding December 31st, 1986, World Healing Day. In Price's books, “Practical Spirituality” Asher told Price; “It will also cause dramatic advances in scientific discoveries, revamp the concept of established religion and church and serve as a ring of protection for more than 3 billion people”. There were 5 billion people on earth, and it says 3 billion people. It goes on to say “Nature will soon enter her cleansing cycle”. It is the same term that Hitler used. “Those individuals with their lower vibratory rates will be removed during the next two decades”. This was written in the mid 1980's. Price then replied to Asher “I know that one of the most serious problems we have today is overpopulation. But wiping more than 2 billion people off the face of the earth is a little drastic don't you think?” Asher replied “Who are we to say that these people did not volunteer to be a part of the destruction and regeneration for the purpose of sole growth.”

(Maurice Strong) The Earth Charter’s seventh principle calls for “responsible reproduction,” a euphemism for population control. China has already begun to implement policies to diminish human population growth. China operates under this program today, enforcing to abort babies if they have a child.

Canada’s Financial Post called for a global law patterned after “China’s one-child policy” as “the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate,” calling China “the world’s leader in terms of fashioning policy to combat environmental degradation.”

Explore other social structures and marriage forms, such as group marriage and polyandrous marriage, which provide family life but may produce less children ...We must hope that no one woman would give birth to more than one child. (p.324 Keith Murray, “Suggestion, Toward an Ecological Platform” quoted by Carl Teichrib is Director of Research at Hope For The World.)

Some these quotes are disturbing and they are only a small portion of those they represent.

The Environmental Handbook – an official publication of Friends of the Earth “There are now too many human beings, and the problem is growing rapidly worse...The goal - half the present world population, or less. Most agree less than a billion people are manageable.

“…it is sinful for anybody to have more than two children. It has long since become glaringly evident that unless the earth’s cancerous growth of population can be halted, all other problems – poverty, war, racial strife, uninhabitable cities, and the rest – are beyond solution.” (Environmental Handbook p.139, John Fischer).

My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.” (Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First). Dave Foreman founder of Earth First “The human race could go extinct, and I for one, would not shed any tears.” Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on earth.

John Davis, editor of Earth First Journal - Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”

Britain's Prince Philip, father of Prince Charles was the first President of the World Wildlife Fund UK from its formation in 1961, later called the World Wide Fund for Nature, said: “If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”

Merton Lambert, former spokesman for the Rockefeller Foundation “The world has cancer, and that cancer is man.” It was James Lovelock, British geophysicist who wrote the 1979 book Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth that said “Humans are like the cells of a tumor.”

To feed a starving child is to exacerbate the world population problem (Lamont Cole)

God says -All those who love death hate me.

The green movements answer to food shortage is population control. Instead of giving people the tools to grow food, their solution is simply to take away the people. One of the more obvious reasons for diminishing the population is to have centralized control over the masses. It is easier to re-educate them and introduce an earth based philosophy and religion for the future world.

Militant U.S. “Greens” formed a similar agenda: radical population control, a global welfare system (replacing capitalism with socialism), planetary governance (including national disarmament), and earth-centered spirituality. The blend of these four counter-culture philosophies shows why pantheism and Marxism permeate environmentalism. Consider the sobering fact that William Reilly, former head of the Environmental Protection Agency, stated that private ownership of land is a “quaint anachronism.” (http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/009/green-lies.htm)

The Marxist philosophy is not totally “godless,” Friedrich Engels stated, “Man is God,” collectively. Radical Environmentalists, replace the Judiac Christian concept of God with “Mother Nature” as God. Those who are living harmoniously with her are united as part of the whole. They propose the planet would be better off if humankind, whom they consider a cancer threatening to kill this planet by “ecocide,” became extinct. In their own genre this would be liken to animal consciousness – having no humanity.

They hold that Humans have no right to rule other creatures, nor to alter Earth’s environment in any way that would upset the balance to natures creatures. This is why environmentalists lobby with success when even a small minnow is affected by the water used to grow crops in California (probably Americas largest bread basket) . So Last year the farmers watch their crops die and their living vanish because of a small minnow being threatened.

Globalists that are anti capitalist (better termed free enterprise), is what made America into the greatest most innovative nation want redistribution of wealth and social justice to bring in their new socialized agenda.

The environmental movement is using extreme measures of fear: claiming we are trashing the planet because of consumerism (video -”story of stuff” created by Annie Leonard, a former Greenpeace employee, She produced the video with money from numerous nonprofit groups; the largest giver - the Tides Foundation, who is George Soros who is funding the transformation of America).

The video presents capitalism devaluing human life by a systematic poisoning of the planet. She and others teach children we have raped the forests and are poisoning everyone with the everyday things we produce. Completely wrong facts are used and have been refuted by many. The video is filled with factual errors and propaganda. EX: 80 percent of forests are now gone – called deforestation. However the facts are: the “U.S. timberlands...contain 28% more standing timber volume than they did in 1952.” “Forests Today and Forever” reports that “70% of the forests standing in 1600 are till standing today.”

Dixy Lee Ray comments: “Mature trees, like all living things, metabolize more slowly as they grow old. A forest of young, is able to remove five to seven tons more CO2 per acre than old growth.

“Reforestation - In the United States, the average annual wood growth is now more than three times what it was in 1920, Forests in America continue to increase in size.”

(Dixy Lee Ray with Lou Guzzo, Trashing the Planet, (New York: Harper Collins, 1990), p. 36.)

But their goal is to punish developing countries who they believe have contributed to their climate change model of destruction. It is targeting our children through schools as activists incorporate it into their education programs fear of their future.

Before Global warming there was the scientific model of Global cooling. This cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause world famine, world chaos and world war, and this could all come about before the year 2000” ( Lowell Ponte “The Cooling”, 1976). No matter what it is a disaster is coming and they use fear to manipulate people into the place they want them to be.

If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder by the year 2000...This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age. ( Kenneth E.F. Watt on air pollution and global cooling, Earth Day (1970). Thus all the food dies and so will civilization, at least to their former inaccurate scientific model. 

“The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s, the world will undergo famines. Hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. Population control is the only answer” (Paul Ehrlich - The Population Bomb 1968)

Is their answer “the only answer”?

Paul Ehrlich population control advocate, author of The Population Bomb, gave a doomsday scenario that greatly influenced those who are now educators in our schools: By 1973 air pollution would be choking cities, causing single-event smog disasters with death tolls in the hundreds of thousands – all heralding the advent of a global air quality collapse that would make the “planet uninhabitable” sometime before 1990. By the mid-seventies, the US grain belt would be turning into the great Mid-western desert, wiping out food stocks. During this time period, Ehrlich speculated, America’s resource sector would be collapsing and a national “family planning” program would have to be set up alongside an international agenda to curb the human population. By the summer of 1979, the world’s oceans would be dead and all sea-based animal life extinct.( essay, “Eco-Catastrophe!,” The Environmental Handbook: Prepared for the First National Environmental Teach-In (Ballantine/Friends of the Earth, 1970, edited by Garrett de Bell), pp.161-176)

Does overpopulation have anything to do with living space or our food supply? NO. Israel was a desert and they converted it into a fruitful land that is in the top three countries in fruit production.

There are scientists that do not hold to the same view that the earth is overpopulated.

They instead see the available land, food and populations not being managed efficiently but this is ignored by the opposing scientists, the UN, and government agencies. 

Sheldon L. Richman, “writes “Human beings inhabit no more than 3 percent of the land surface of the earth. “if the world's 5.4 billion people were put in Jacksonville, Florida, each person would have four square feet to stand in. In Texas each person would have at least fourteen hundred square feet, the area of a good-sized two-bedroom apartment.” .”

Roger Revelle, former Director of the Harvard Center of Population Studies, came up with a figure providing a 2500-calorie diet for 40 billion, using only 25% of land - and having enough left over for growing fiber, rubber, coffee/tea, and even tobacco! 

Colin Clark, former Director of the Oxford University Agricultural Economic Institute, said that with today's technology enough food can be produced to feed 35.1 billion people with “an American-type diet” using only 50% of the earth's land mass.

Stabilizing the world population is to be declared a national policy by the UN. They blame America as the leader of deforestation but they are trying to implement de-humanization on the population.

What is the most effective way to reduce and control the population? Make sex education available to all children. First through abortion and sterilization. Remove any restrictions on the provision of birth control information and devices; provide these services free to all, including minors (2010 US health plan). Under the new US health plan they are trying to have planned parenthood in all the schools for counseling. Then promote homosexuality as a viable alternative which will bring to a stop population growth for the next generation. Polygamy would also be an answer to shrinking the family.

Erlich wrote in his book the Population bomb compulsory birth regulation would be necessary to achieve such control. … use of temporary sterilants added to water supplies or staple food controlled by the government to produce the desired population size.

In Ehrlich’s book, Ecoscience, authored by John Holdren an advisor to the President for Science and Technology, he has suggested laws requiring compulsory abortion. It would appear they would rather see us have pets other than children.

There are currently 1893 Endangered species – but there more killed of a certain species than any other in a very short amount of time; man. The most intelligent of the species under free choice kills his own. There are 4,400 abortions a day performed in America and according to the world health org. 125,000 abortions per day in the world, that is over 40 million a year. What is a more valuable life, an animal or human; a fish or a human being? If there was a decision between a person who was an environmentalist and a seal or a whale or an owl, would they be willing to give their live to let them live? I think very few given this choice would be that irrational. What we have is a clear case of -- do as I say, not as I do.

Birth control and population control have support from the rich and powerful that take interest in the population issue because of their utopian world-view that they think can be brought about by careful planning.

The Green movement is as much about social Justice, as it is about social engineering.

What is there solution? To take those who have and distribute it to those who do not to make things equal. In “A DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE” it states, “When in the course of history the threat of extinction confronts mankind, it is necessary for the people of the United States to declare their interdependence with the people of all nations and to embrace those principles and build those institutions which will enable mankind to survive and civilization to flourish. Two centuries ago our forefathers brought forth a new nation; now we must join with others to bring forth a new world order.” “WE AFFIRM that the resources of nature are sufficient to nourish and sustain all the present inhabitants of the globe and that there is an obligation on every society to distribute those resources equitably, along with a corollary obligation upon every society to assure that its population does not place upon Nature a burden heavier than it can bear.” (WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL OF PHILADELPHIA 1975 October 24, 1975)

Social justice is clearly being presented here. It will supposedly take us from instability to stability for the economy and sharing of resources for equality of living for all. Yes w we all be equal at a far lower standard; instead of raising the bar they lower it to the bottom.

We need to understand the climate crises that has been made is directly tied with population growth. Al Gore has asked for a Global Plan to implement international population control; that includes a redistribution of the world's wealth.

Religion is also involved, this is not just politics and science

Speaking at Gorbachev's State of the World Forum in San Francisco (1996) Dr. Sam Keen a New Age writer and philosopher stated that there was strong agreement that religious institutions have to take a primary responsibility for the population explosion. “We must speak far more clearly about sexuality, contraception, about abortion, about values that control the population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis. Cut the population by 90% and there aren't enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage.”

Message from the Dalai Lama.

Until now…Mother Earth has somehow tolerated sloppy house habits. But now human use, population, and technology have reached that certain stage where Mother Earth no longer accepts our presence with silence. In many ways she is now telling us, ‘My children are behaving badly.’ She is warning us that there are limits to our actions…” (Dalai Lama, as printed in Only One Earth (United Nations Environmental Programme, 2000), p.61.)

One can read this to mean something in a number of different ways but considering it is attached to the UN program, would it nor be in line with their perspective?

Unless you want to blame man for all the natural disasters (which some do not hesitate to do), you would actually have to be fair and blame nature for some; (mother nature) which in their apologetic model is reacting to everything man is doing. Like a woman who has become emotionally hysterical with no rationale, the environmentalists become soldiers for her cause. Showing they are one with nature.

This vast intelligence that they attribute to Gaia (nature – the planetary being called mother earth), is unable to know what species should be part of the population or which organisms can live harmoniously together… she leaves the choice to us. A volcano, a flood, a hurricane will indiscriminately kill; even an environment. Nature does not have the ability to pick and choose, nature kills species of animals just as it does humans. She has no intelligence, no value of “right” or “wrong.” If nature is intelligent as they claim why does it cause problems tot all people, even environmentalists? Nature produces floods and disasters, it is man that comes to rescue man.

More than 90 percent of all the species that have lived became extinct through nature before humankind arrived (according to their own timeline based on evolution). An ice age and global warming periods have all had their effects on the animals. So to lay the blame on man for every species that is currently diminishing goes against their own scientific model.

This environmental movements enforcement on our culture is a direct challenge to God’s world view of man being worth more than the animals. These same people who want to save trees and animals have no regard for babies in or out of the womb. Bioethicist Dr. Peter Singer, is one of the main influences in academia, he defends the right to life of animals, stating they share equal moral status with human beings so it is unethical for people to kill and eat them yet believes parents should have a right to exterminate their babies not only in the womb but in most cases, supports the parents' right to terminate this life even up to 28 days after birth - that it is ethically OK to kill 1-year-olds with physical or mental disabilities. New York Times called Singer the “greatest living philosopher. My wife says this all sounds like some bad sci-fi novel, but this is the topsy- turvey world we live in now, good is evil and evil is good – just as the Bible says. Calling nature, animals equal with mankind disregards Gods instruction and order. Man was made and appointed as God’s greatest creature on earth to rule with wisdom over the other creatures.

Earth mother are what pagan religions are about, we need to turn to the true and living God who wants to have mercy and bless us, not judge us for our rebellion. Until we understand the cause that has brought the effect we will not be able to bring about any solution.

Ezek 14:13-23: “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. “Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord GOD. “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts, “even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate. “Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, 'Sword, go through the land,' and I cut off man and beast from it, “even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered. “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast, “even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord GOD, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness…and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it,” says the LORD GOD.”
