China Ties Climate Change To Population Control

In a report that’s likely to get the New World Order crowd up in arms, China Daily is reporting that its country is looking to use the Copenhagen climate change summit to push its population control measures:

Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC).

“Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture,” said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.

Many studies link population growth with emissions and the effect of climate change.

“Calculations of the contribution of population growth to emissions growth globally produce a consistent finding that most of past population growth has been responsible for between 40 per cent and 60 percent of emissions growth,” so stated by the 2009 State of World Population, released earlier by the UN Population Fund.

Although China’s family planning policy has received criticism over the past three decades, Zhao said that China’s population program has made a great historic contribution to the well-being of society.

As a result of the family planning policy, China has seen 400 million fewer births, which has resulted in 18 million fewer tons of CO2 emissions a year, Zhao said…

    i can't wait to hear the right wingers screaming about obama forcing abortions on christians,

    Do you know why people call you 'sheeple?' It's because when what they've been telling you all along will happen, HAPPENS, you still sit there with that shit eating grin pointing fingers and calling names.

    BTW 'Sean' it'll be real good for a laugh when the suicide rate for women in the developed world skyrockets as it has in rural China.

    look it up.

    Or do you not care?

    The tone around here is really starting to make me sick.

      people weak enough to choose suicide are no loss
      but don't worry i despise the left as much as i do the right,
      none of them think for themselves and are no better than serfs serving their masters they deserve what ever they get

    I'm glad China is raising the issue, though I think their one-child policy approach is unnecessarily coercive. Reductions in the birth rate can be achieved through a system of economic incentives, with tax policy playing a central role.

    The biggest obstacle we face in changing attitudes toward overpopulation is economists. Since the field of economics was branded “the dismal science” after Malthus' theory, economists have been adamant that they would never again consider the subject of overpopulation and continue to insist that man is ingenious enough to overcome any obstacle to further growth. Even worse, economists insist that population growth is vital to economic growth. This is why world leaders continue to ignore population growth in the face of mounting challenges like peak oil, global warming and a whole host of other environmental and resource issues.

    But because they are blind to population growth, there's one obstacle they haven't considered: the finiteness of space available on earth. The very act of using space more efficiently creates a problem for which there is no solution: it inevitably begins to drive down per capita consumption and, consequently, per capita employment, leading to rising unemployment and poverty.
