Science Prof Calls For Fewer Humans To "Strengthen Human Rights"

Will there be “untold human suffering” if humans do not stop having children in order to avoid a “climate emergency?” More than 11,000 scientists signed a paper authored by an ecology professor at Oregon State University making that case.

OSU’s William Ripple and Christopher Wolf, a postdoctoral research associate at OSU ( left and right, below ), were the lead authors of the paper “World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency,” published in the journal BioScience .

Their call to “reduce the world population” is among six solutions. “We need to reduce fertility rates through voluntary family planning,” Ripple told The College Fix in an email.

If humans don’t change to mostly plant-based diet and work to lower fertility rates, “reduce wealth inequality,” increase outdoor education, create new environmental policies and create “new green technologies,” there will be “widespread misery and catastrophic biodiversity loss,” it says.

The guy is living in academia la la land. Just how are you going to teach family planning in third world countries where the level of intelligence is believing raping a virgin will cure AIDS?

Well, who knows with any certainty what it is, but there’s a maximum number of humans that the earth can support. Just like there’s a finite number of barrels of oil to draw out and tons of coal to extract.

I call for fewer science professors to strengthen common sense.

The natural answer to these people: OK, you go first. Here’s the plans for all of Dr. Kevorkian’s death machines.

There’s a limit to the amount of food we can produce, especially given the unpredictability of the climate. (I’m not talking about "global warming)

Unchecked population growth certainly doesn’t sound right.
