Ted Turner on climate change and China's one child policy

Mr. Ted Turner, ‘media mogul’, and long-time advocate of population control, has said that the ‘environmental stress’ on the planet Earth requires ‘radical solutions’. Such solutions, he says, would include that countries should follow China’s one-child policies in order to reduce global population over time.   He has also suggested that ‘fertility rights could be sold so that poor people could profit from their decision not to reproduce.’   

But former president of Ireland, Mary Robinson (she who decided to cut short her position as president in order to take up a more ‘important’ role at the United Nations, and who has now once again returned to Ireland with a new personal venture for which she may be receiving a handsome grant from the Irish government), considers that radical solutions for population control, such as that suggested by Ted Turner, might backfire.  She clearly agrees with the goal however it is simply the methodology she considers to be too radical, ‘If we do it the wrong way’, Mary Robinson is quoted as saying, ‘we can divide the world.  A lot of people in the climate world could communicate this very badly.’   Indeed.  We know where Mary Robinson’s concerns lie.

Just a comment – funny how the phrase ‘global warming’ has gone out of fashion and is hardly used at all nowadays, certainly not after the snow, ice, and freezing temperatures of recent weeks.  No, it’s now called ‘climate change’ – so that any weather conditions can be used to justify the ‘over-population’ myth.
