Global Warmists Promote Extinction of Humans!

An article reported by states:

The global warmists are now saying that having babies is bad for the planet and that babies should be considered an environmental misdemeanor because a baby’s carbon dioxide output is equivalent to some 620 round trip flights between New York and London. According to the London Times, a green think tank called the Optimum Population Trust is publishing a report that suggests couples wanting to have children should take the environment into account. John Guillebaud, co-chairman of OPT and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, said, “The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child.” The Times pointed out that the British fertility rate is 1.7, and the European Union average is 1.5. Despite this, Professor Guillebaud says rich countries should be the most concerned about family size as their children have higher per capita carbon dioxide emissions. In another commentary by environmental extremist Paul Watson, founder and president of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, mankind was compared to a virus that is destroying “Mother Earth.” Watson demanded that the population of earth be reduced by one billion people. He also said that humans should stop flying in jets, stop driving cars and stop using boats and ships.

We can clearly see from this article what a denial and rejection of the truth leads to...death. Romans 1 speaks of those who worship and serve the creature more than the Creator. This is clearly creature worship. These people obviously have no interest in the Creator or His Word, but they do have great interest in His creation. So much so that they are willing to promote extinction.

A population needs to at least have a birth rate of 2.0 to not decrease and eventually become extinct. As the article says, the UK and the EU both have birth rates that are unable to sustain its current population. So taking into account this group's desires with the known birth rate, their agenda is ultimately a call to exticntion.

James 1:15 says "...sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death." Death is the result of their errant thinking. When people no longer see a need for the truth of God's Word, when they reject the Creator and what He has called on mankind to do (i.e. be fruitful and multiply), the end result is destruction.
