Al Gore branches out into population control theory

Not content to make a fool of himself confusing weather and climate, Al has now decided to lecture empower women on how to reduce the population for the benefit of the planet. Watch the video below, now we know why he doesn’t allow recordings of his lectures. Darn those Flip Video Cameras.

Al Gore How Empowering Women Fights Climate Change

And here is his wisdom of weather and climate

Al Gore Talks Extreme Weather, Climate

Recorded June 20th by Brian Merchant, hat tip to Chris Horner.

UPDATE: Tom Nelson on his blog points out the bottled water next to Gore.

Flashback: Pour the bottled-water trend down the drain

it’s time for those of us who care about the environment and are concerned about global warming to stop buying and drinking bottled water.

2007: Bottled Water Ban Not Enough

Following the radically liberal traditions of San Francisco, Mayor Gavin Newsom banned municipal departments from purchasing bottled water, even for water coolers.

Since the late 1970s, 163 million female babies have been aborted by parents seeking sons . . .”Sex selection typically starts with the urban, well-educated stratum of society,” she writes. “Elites are the first to gain access to a new technology, whether MRI scanners, smart phones—or ultrasound machines.” The behavior of elites then filters down until it becomes part of the broader culture.
High sex ratios mean that a society is going to have “surplus men”—that is, men with no hope of marrying because there are not enough women. Such men accumulate in the lower classes, where risks of violence are already elevated. And unmarried men with limited incomes tend to make trouble. In Chinese provinces where the sex ratio has spiked, a crime wave has followed. Today in India, the best predictor of violence and crime for any given area is not income but sex ratio.. . . .
It becomes harder to secure a bride, and men can find themselves buying or bidding for them. This, Ms. Hvistendahl notes, contributes to China’s astronomical household savings rate; parents know they must save up in order to secure brides for their sons. . . . .
the Ford Foundation, the United Nations and Planned Parenthood, showing how they pushed sex-selective abortion as a means of controlling population growth. . . .
another Planned Parenthood official celebrated China’s coercive methods of family planning, noting that “persuasion and motivation [are] very effective in a society in which social sanctions can be applied against those who fail to cooperate in the construction of the socialist state.” . . .
Ms. Hvistendahl identifies a ban on abortion—and not the killing of tens of millions of unborn girls—

Al Gore continues this bloody legacy.

I cant believe that this guy earn millions with such of ignorance !

I for one am extremely disappointed- isn’t it usual to have singing and tap dancing in a show like this?

Jeremy

Doesn’t Gore have 4 children?
He’s definitely helping to control the population. 😉

DirkH

Nashville had a 1000 year flood? That’s long. I think that qualifies as climate.

I wonder if his clothes are sustainable?

Shocking. Well just like the fact he lives in a mansion and flies around on private jets yet talks about reducing fuel consumption – he has 4 children.

Jack

In an Armageddon scenario it is a certainty that his armed guards would turn on him and his family. As it is, I am quite sure that he is surrounded by people who hold him in complete contempt, and I hope that he has to pay for their services.
Such thoughts let me sleep at night.

The best way to control population is to decrease poverty, provide abundant, affordable electricity and enhance education. It works like a charm everywhere it has been tried…perhaps too well. Developed countries have had to import the poor from third world countries for labor because their own fecundity has been reduced.
The nonsense about weather events is just that…nonsense. “We” can’t do a damn thing about the weather.

vboring

Poor people aren’t idiots. They have more kids because it increases their chance of producing successful offspring.
Rich people aren’t idiots, either. They have fewer kids – because it increases their chances of producing successful offspring.
The difference is that there are more risks involved in a poor person’s life. Reduce those risks (by making them richer, by increasing their access to energy, water, health care, etc) and they will have fewer kids. Increase those risks by making energy more expensive only increases their biological need to produce more kids.
Increasing their capability to do something that isn’t in their best interest will achieve absolutely nothing.

sceptical

Not sure what your beef is with his comments about education and empowerment for girls and women. There is a correlation between womens education and child rates. Do you feel it is wrong for women to be empowered or girls to have education?

Ray

He is joining Bill Gates with this population reduction ideas, except that Gates wants to do it with vaccines.

Ray

Here is an idea bout what to do against floods… don’t built houses in flood basins. The developers are at the source of the problem.

sceptical

Seems we have been told that a warmer world would lead to increased likelihood of major floods and draughts and we are now experiencing more of these in a warmer world. Climate effects weather events.

Zowie. So we should educate women and try and prevent childhood deaths because we need to reduce CO2 emissions, not because those are intrinsically good goals. So if we’re entering a Maunder minimum and need to further increase CO2 to compensate, will Gore recommend eliminating women’s education and killing children by the millions so parents will pump up the output of new babies?

We just need to educate women, and they’ll come to their senses and do the right thing. The arrogance of the man is beyond belief.

Harold Lewis, emeritus professor of physics at the University of California-Santa Barbara, who resigned this month from the American Physical Society after 67 years of loyal membership. His resignation letter said this:
“It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist.” http://bit.ly/h2XnZ8
“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” – Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal
“Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate changes after the fact.” – Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland
“I have yet to see credible proof of carbon dioxide driving climate change, yet alone man-made CO2 driving it. The atmospheric hot-spot is missing and the ice core data refute this. When will we collectively awake from this deceptive delusion?” – Dr. Gn LeBlanc Smith, a retired Principal Research Scientist with Australia’s CSIRO.
Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in history . . .When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, and award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.
“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds. . . I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists.” – Indian Geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet.
“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” – U.S. Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA
“After reading [UN IPCC chairman] Pachauri’s asinine comment [comparing skeptics to] Flat Earthers, it’s hard to remain quiet.” – Climate statistician Dr. William M. Briggs, who specializes in the statistics of forecast evaluation, serves on the American Meteorological Society’s Probability and Statistics Committee and is an Associate Editor of Monthly Weather Review.
“The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse. It is global warming that triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way around. . . A large number of critical documents at the 1995 U.N. conference in Madrid vanished without a trace. As a result, the discussion was one-sided and heavily biased, and the U.N. declared global warming to be a scientific fact.” Andrei Kapista, a Russian geographer and Antarctic ice core researcher
“For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?” – Geologist Dr. David Gee the chairman of the science committee of the 2008 International Geological Congress who has authored 130 plus peer-reviewed papers, and is currently at Uppsala University in Sweden.

What the heck has happened to the Berkeley Earth Temp Project?????
http://www.berkeleyearth.org/index
This was supposed to have been resolved a long long time ago ? Was it not April, then delayed to May, were in June now, still no answer. My guess is that they have found that the data cannot be released because it does not show ANY warming since 1880.

alGore has become a cleric. His version of religion fits his regime.
How was the sex poodle with givving his meseeuse intelligent choice?

I am sorry, but this is just far too easy.
I’ll just wait to comment on an article that poses at least a small intellectual challenge.

We all know the real aim is to reduce human population. So show us the way Al baby, make yourself a good example of what “responsible people ” should do. It would be a better legacy than you have now.

Yeah, the draughts help cool us down again.
Did you hear the one about the guy carrying the cardoor through the desert?
He said it was so he could wind the window down when he got hot…

I agree,
but having a well educated population would not be in the self serving interest of Al Gore and the rest of these popularized modern megalomaniacs because very fue educated people would believe a word they uttered.
There are too many political figures, royalty etc.. on the world stage who are qualified in anthropology who love nothing more than to push their misanthropic Ideological beliefs on the uneducated, trusting and gullible public.
Last week I read about plans to reduce world population through vaccines, How does that work? are they actually calling the sterilization of millions of woman and children “a vaccine”? does this mean these nut jobs see babies as a disease or some kind of virus??
People should be allowed to control their own destiny and have the same freedoms and opportunities that has allowed this modern band or merry grim reapers to become wealthy and look down on the rest of mankind with utter contempt and disgust.

Show me one warmist prediction of increased flooding prior to 2005.

He is truly stuck. In foopid. XD

The ‘filter bubble’ is a sinister phenomenon. But Eli Pariser’s alternative sounds even worse.
That’s the title of an article I found today at the telegraph

In his new book, it is this world that Eli Pariser names the “filter bubble” – a place where a hidden code decides what you can and can’t see..

…and aimed directly at Facebook and Google for filtering our search:

to make sure that these algorithms have encoded in them a sense of the public life. A sense of civic responsibility. We need you to make sure that they’re transparent enough that we can see what the rules are that determine what gets through our filters. And we need you to give us some control so that we can decide what gets through and what doesn’t.

I imagine that without a choice to control what information we receive, I doubt we will find videos of this nature.
If Google, Facebook and Al Gore had their way.. they would spoon feed us all the alarmist crap known to man, and hide anything to the contrary.

jorgekafkazar

What Gore means by “empower women” is propagandize them into drinking the Kool-Aid.

SteveSadlov

To empower educated, successful Western women how to commit demographic suicide.
THAAAAATS the ticket!
Speaking of bat s____ crazy freaks getting attention in the MSM, there have been an unusually high number of warmista pressos going out of late.
Meanwhile not a mention of the fall like cold front digging into the center of the country right now. Or of the fact that leaves are already starting to turn in Norcal. Sure we’re having a couple of summer like (well, really, spring like or fall like) days with an offshore. But it will be back to cold by the end of the week. Actually, that’s very fall like.

“Fertility management”….whaddayasuppose he meant by that?

I’d be thinking about now that Generation Investment Management now has stock in Planned Parenthood…
Why should we be surprised? Every single thing Gore has advocated the general public to do, he’s done the opposite. He’s the quintessential hypocrite tent preacher/snake oil salesman.

Show me your evidence that “we are now experiencing more of these in a warmer world. “? I assume you agree that we have had 30 odd years of global warming.

FLOODS
“Analysis of trends and of aggregated time series on climatic (30-year) scale does not indicate consistent trends worldwide. Despite common perception, in general, the detected trends are more negative (less intense floods in most recent years) than positive. Similarly, Svensson et al. (2005) and Di Baldassarre et al. (2010) did not find systematical change neither in flood increasing or decreasing numbers nor change in flood magnitudes in their analysis.”
[2011]
http://itia.ntua.gr/en/docinfo/1128/

STORM DAYS
“However, the global total number of storm days shows no trend and only an unexpected large amplitude fluctuation driven by El Niño-Southern Oscillation and PDO. The rising temperature of about 0.5°C in the tropics so far has not yet affected the global tropical storm days. ”

Sceptical, read……..

“Fluctuations in some climate parameters”
“Here we report results on those parameters of which we have had experience during the last few years: Global surface temperature, Cloud Cover and the MODIS Liquid Cloud Fraction. In no case we have found indications that fluctuations of these parameters have increased with time.”
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jastp.2011.01.021

I assume you agree that we have had around 30 years of global warming. The hottest decade on the record.

The coded words of the eugenics masters, most people are not even smart enough to understand it or the concept. Kinda funny(not really) how open they have become with the concepts of reducing the population of useless eaters(us) and nobody stands up to them and asked the hard question about it.

mrmethane

Gore has 4 kids, but Suzuki has 5. Nyah, Nyah!

rbateman

He had no choice but to branch out. AGW was not sustainable.
He’s not the first one to exand the horizons. Stephan Schneider was all sold on the Next Ice Age before AGW came along.

Jason Bair

It took him a minute to say “have less children.” That’s something he should have no say in.

Theo Goodwin

Now that Al is worried about excessive population, I wonder if he would reconsider building the fence along the Mexican border. After all, the USA has done its (Liberal? Modern?) duty and reduced its birthrate to below replacement. That happened more than forty years ago. Except for emigration, the population of the US would be roughly where it was in 1970.

Nice one Anthony… But are you not the guy who all winter long posts articles about snow storms and cold spells… In a single city??? Are you sure your qualified to make that statement?

Jimbo

What would Al Gore say if everyone had 4 kids like him? The Duke of Edinburgh goes on and on about overpopulation yet ignores the fact that he also has 4 kids who consume the world’s resources like there’s no tomorrow. Take Prince Charles who is very concerned about global warming. Now see how he lives with less: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riXrqyGrnCc

Jimbo

This is one reason Prince Charles is certain about man-made global warming – follow the money, lots of it each year.

Sssshhhh! Don’t stop him! Think about it: the more people are exposed to Gramscian indoctrination (ie college) the less they reproduce.
We should encourage this self-selection. We should be happy to see the Gaian secular aristocrats reproducing less. This will leave the rational and civilized people (ie serious Christians and Muslims) reproducing more.

Jimbo

The reason why these hypocrites want fewer people in the world is so that there will be more resources for them. Look at how Gore and the other Watermelons live.
