• UN Climate Chief: We Should ‘Make Every Effort’ To Reduce Population

    Officials within the United Nations want the human population to be reduced in order to effectively combat climate change and protect the environment.

    “Fertility rates in population” are a contributor to climate change and we should should “make every effort,” to reduce the global population trends in an effort to fight climate change,  Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), said during an interview with Climate One.

    Climate One Founder Greg Dalton asked Figueres if she thinks there are policies to reduce the estimated 9 billion people that will likely populate the globe as the UN predicts in 2050.

    “Obviously less people would exert less pressure on the natural resources, we can definitely change those numbers and really should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity, today,” Figueres replied. “We cannot fall into the very simplistic opinion of saying just by curtailing population then we’ve solved the problem.”

    The comments are made at 4.20 into the video above.

    Figueres previously described the goal of the UNFCC as “a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.” She has also repeatedly said that a Chinese style communist dictatorship is better suited than the U.S. constitutional system to fight “global warming.”

    Figueres believes that the Chinese government, which continues to enforce forced abortions, infanticide and compulsory sterilization, is “doing it right” when it comes to climate change, even though China is by far the biggest emitter of greenhouse gasses.

    The U.N. has  proposed in 2013 that people help the environment reduce the demand for traditional meats like pigs, cows and chickens by eating insects for protein instead because food and water resources will become very scarce as the global population grows.
