Berkeley City Council Calls for Population Control to “Protect Environment”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Berkeley City Council made a startling resolution last Tuesday when it called for population control measures. The Council claimed that such actions were necessary to protect the environment from a global, catastrophic emergency.

The Berkeley City Council calls for the use of so-called humane measures to achieve its goal of population control, but there has yet to be a population control campaign that ever used humane practices. The concept of humane population control is in itself an impossible oxymoron. Environmental concerns and protections can be valid causes of concern, but should never threaten human life or human rights.

The Berkeley City Council claims that the earth is experiencing a “climate emergency” that could result in bigger repercussions than World War II. They did not specify just what these repercussions would entail, however. The council members said immediate action is necessary to “humanely stabilize population” and “reverse ecological overshoot.” Fox News has more:

The resolution notes that “reversing ecological overshoot and halting the sixth mass extinction requires an effort to preserve and restore half Earth’s biodiversity in interconnected wildlife corridors and to humanely stabilize population.”

The resolution, introduced in the ultra-progressive city by councilwoman Cheryl Davila, then invokes Pope Francis’ comment that humanity is on the verge of global “suicide” and that “God’s creation” is at stake.

Davila’s resolution also calls for a global climate summit in San Francisco in September and a push to “educat[e] our citizens about the climate emergency.”

After reading that, it sounds like the Berkeley City Council has been watching to many sci-fi movies. In all seriousness though, the Council is promoting a hideous agenda. Historically, population control campaigns have been the root cause of the worst human rights abuses in history. Population control typically results in such eugenics measures as forced abortions or sterilizations. Individuals who attempt to refuse to abide my population control laws in other countries are forced into hiding, have their children stripped away, or have to pay crippling fines for having more children than the laws allow.

By 2030, the Berkely City Council plans for Berkeley to be a “carbon sink,” meaning that the city’s greenhouse gases will be in the negative or make use of negative greenhouse gas emissions to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

The Berkeley City Council also stated that residents should avoid “consumerism” and “narcissism.” This is ironic given the fact that having a lessened population could easily stem from consumerism and/or narcissism.

  1. There has already been population control for years in China, with forced abortions, resulting in a shortage of females, also the same goes for places like India where boys are also preferred over girls. Then, too, there have been over 50,000,000 abortions here in the US since 1973, and who knows how many in other countries, plus wars and natural disasters, so I rather doubt that we will need to “cull the herd” anytime soon. But if those Berkeley people want to control population, they can do it to themselves as an example to others, perhaps.

  2. OK, so no nicknames or titles, hmm? My post just disappeared without anything saying that I did not fill out the form properly, and I don’t see that it was posted. Getting back to “overpopulation,” the measures at hand are already in place, and have been for many years. It’s called abortion. It was forced in China, which has resulted in a serious shortage of girls, since boys are preferred as part of that culture. They will never be able to make up for that. Places like India are also short on girls for the same reason. Then, too, her in the US, more than FIFTY MILLION abortions have been done here for the last 40+ years, and I do not know how many there have been in other countries. Then you add war and natural disasters, which bumps up the numbers even higher, so I think that those Berkeley people really should think this one through or else offer themselves up to the god of climate change and population control as an example of their commitment to that cause before they ask the rest of us to do it instead.
