Warmists on Genocide: Fewer “Parasites” Means More Trees.

Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a shocking rise in the intensity and venom of alarmist attacks not just on sceptics, but on people in general.

A recent study by climate scientists said that Genghis Khan managed to wipe out enough people to make a difference to the climate, because of reforestation. Many green websites called Genghis Khan the “greenest warrior” and “Genghis the Green” for his decades-long campaign of genocide.

Now a major warmist website, partnered with sites such as Slate, Grist, and Treehugger, has gone even further, arguing that it was simply “common sense” that fewer parasites meant more trees:

The study appears to reaffirms cold-blooded Malthusiansism common sense: there will be more of something (trees) when there are less of the parasites (people) cutting that something down.

So, can we safely assume that to save the planet we just need to wipe each other out in a series of protracted wars? Even that, according to Pongratz’s study, may not be enough to overcome the negative effects of deforestation-induced climate change.

TakePart.com. War, Huh-Yeah, What is it Good For? The Climate, Apparently.

Cold-blooded? I’ll say – calling genocide “good” for the climate is chilling, as is the equation of ‘Fewer parasites = more trees’.

‘Participant Media’ is listed on Wikipedia as a major producer of “socially relevant movies and documentaries” and according to IMDb helped produce Al Gore’s documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.

Perhaps their next movie might be called: Fewer Parasites Means More Trees. Who could they find to narrate that one?

  1. Yep, virtually every leading environmental ecofascist leader thinks this way from Paul Watson, Al Gore, Paul Erlich to John Holdren [see zombietime com eco imperialism-com] ad nauseum . They are moral vanity driven narcissistic leftist control freaks. They love the abstraction of Gaia but despise people, who do not reflect their own imagined “perfection”. Earth they believe can one day be “perfected” though and thus made to reflect their hideous Utopian totalitarian anti human Malthusian “purity”.

    YouTube Google look up ‘The Re-Wilding Of America’ via the UN’s Agenda 21 et al, on the very successful drive to lock up land from the people and reduce private property to the goal of zero. Some states have taken an astonishing 60% of land from any private hands to up to no access whatsoever.

    The disgusting Karl Marx said that he could some up Marxist Communism in the sentence “The abolition of private property…”

    No, really. Colonel Neville.

    • We live in the path of one of these Rewilding projects called the ‘Yellowstone to Yukon (Y2Y)’ project. It is said to be based on the need for a ‘wildlife corridor’ stretching from the Yellowstone to the Yukon, but it is really based on the junk post-modern pseudoscience called ‘Conservation Biology.’

      This is the same junk science at the core of the species-at-risk listing industry, the same one that hypes the ‘mass extinction’ hysteria, and the same one that conveniently predicts, in league with the AGW gang, the extinction of the all-time high polar bear population.

      If you think that ‘IPCC global climatology’ is as bad as ‘science’ can get, you are not familiar with Conservation Biology. Or, to be extremely generous, perhaps they are equal junk.

  2. Oops. eco-imperialism com

  3. Oops and “sum up” not “some up”. Geez. Edit already. Nevvile.

  4. I have asked this before (but no harm in doing so again) but it would be nice to hear who the proponents of the above feel should be culled off?. Is their stance one of an ‘across the board’ cull which (IF one accepts the argument of culling, I do not) has greater validity.

    Or is their view simply one of a managed decline rather than gas chambers which does have merit? (but I have a feeling not because all the talk is around disease process/war etc) .

    I’m just interested to know how much of a target these people consider me to be due to my own demographic.

    • I think it’s more nebulous than that. It’s not so much that they want to target any particular group or section of society, but rather they feel that there are too many people and that “something must be done”.

      When you really get right down to brass tacks, the environmentalist movement is incredibly reactionary. The people who came up with a lot of the ideas are deeply unpleasant people. Edward Goldsmith, for example, said that the idea of a happy multi-cultural society was a “lie” and that different ethnic groups must live apart, or perform “different functions” in society – something which doesn’t take too much decoding.

      Julian Huxley, co-founder of the WWF, said that it was “perfectly legitimate” to compare Jamaican an Puerto Rican immigrants to cancer cells spreading in a body.

      Just two examples from hundreds. Enough for years of blogging!

  5. Just let it roll. We now see the real green agenda (climate change as the stalking horse, via wealth redistribution to war or disease-borne population reduction) – but turkeys don’t vote for Christmas and sooner or later the eco-nuts will realise that in any democracy they will never get a single vote again …

    • Tim C, you are correct about the votes I think. However if one bypasses that little local difficulty by obtaining the control of global ‘economy’ and persuading ‘lawmakers’ that handing over responsibility to larger unelectable overseers – say the EU to start with and then the UN – is a ‘good thing for the world’ then who needs democracy?

      What is intersesting is that so many of these people promoting the view can only do so from the safety and security of countries with, absent immigration, a static or marginally declining population. (Mainly, certainly no dramatic increases.) So the targets, where their views are published, are not really part of an increasing problem that could conceivably require a drastic solution.

      Perhaps they could take their messages to those parts of the planet currently playing catch up in terms of technology on the back of free R&D but not yet adjusted to the population growth issues. That is where they might satisfy their desires – usually expressed as ‘to make a difference’. If not they are simply nihilists and should admit as much.

      Of course this assumes that there is any substance to their philosophies and and they are more than just internet vanity sites for small groups of unpleasant but clueless sociopaths who cannot see clearly beyond the boundaries of their small personal bubbles.

  6. People are complicated. The “World Has Too Many People” people are everywhere. The Warmist Mayhem Mob are using it as a means of furthering their cause and arguments for that very reason (and because they too really believe it of course), it attracts a lot of would-be supporters (and contributors) who essentially agree there are far too many ‘carbon units infesting planet earth’. Another group of potential supporters is the “Secure Borders” people. Can you think of a way to get donations from these people? For the Cause of Global Warming, of course? Two birds with one little stone. There are soooooo many little human likes and dislikes that can be used for getting donations and supporters for any number of ‘Crusades’. The objective is to WIN, how is beside the point.

  7. Malthusian politics again. Such verbal radicalism is easy and quite satisfying with few direct consequences. Of course it corrupts rational discourse, but that only matters if you value rational discourse. Many don’t.

    These ideas show what some people are prepared to say in pursuit of a self-image they find satisfying. Their views don’t have to make much sense and unfortunately little is gained by pointing out that they are essentially fascist.

  8. “Something must be done”. The “something” will, over time, morph into “something” more definite. Suggestions are already bubbling up in fevered minds. Keep lifting rocks and shining lights.

  9. I braved the public meeting in Oxford Council Chamber last night entitled ‘One Million Climate Jobs’. Anyone who thinks that campaigning against AGW can be separated from extreme left-wing politics should have been there: the speakers came from an unholy alliance of the Green Party, ‘Campaign against Climate Change’, ‘Fight the Cuts’ campaigners, Unite, and the National Union of Students. ‘Socialist Worker’ was on sale at the entrance.
    Amongst the suggestions from the audience was that a good proportion of the million new government climate jobs should be ‘population control managers’. Whatever that means. The suggestion that the jobs should be called ‘environment jobs’ rather than ‘climate jobs’ was rejected as the panic power of ‘death by AGW’ was an essential ingredient.
    This meeting would have been scary apart from a couple of things: firstly there were only about 50 people there, and secondly most ordinary people would dismiss the speakers and most of the attendees as utterly bonkers.

    “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”
    – Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

    “The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”
    – Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

    “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”
    – Professor Maurice King

    “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.”
    – David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

    “Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”
    – Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

    “The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.”
    – Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation

    “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
    – Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University

    “Our insatiable drive to rummage deep beneath the surface of the earth is a willful expansion of our dysfunctional civilization into Nature.”
    – Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

    “The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.”
    – Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

    – Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

    „A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.“
    – Prof. Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

    „A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.“
    – United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

    “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
    – Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor

    “… the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million but less than one billion.”
    – Club of Rome, Goals for Mankind

    „One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.“
    – Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier

    “If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”

    “The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing.”
    – Christopher Manes, Earth First!

    „Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.“
    – David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

    “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.”
    – Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution

    – David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive manager

    „Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send out entire planet’s climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced – a catastrophe of our own making.“
    – Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth

    „By the end of this century, climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.“

    – Barack Obama, US Presidential Candidate

    „We are close to a time when all of humankind will envision a global agenda that encompasses a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the causes of poverty and suffering and environmental destruction all over the earth.“
    – Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

    „In Nature organic growth proceeds according to a Master Plan, a Blueprint. Such a ‘master plan’ is missing from the process of growth and development of the world system. Now is the time to draw up a master plan for sustainable growth and world development based on global allocation of all resources and a new global economic system. Ten or twenty years from today it will probably be too late.“
    – Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

    „The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable, indeed a sacred principle of international relations. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.“
    – UN Commission on Global Governance report

    „Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely. Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.“
    – Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution

    „In my view, after fifty years of service in the United National system, I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present political and economic systems are no longer appropriate and will lead to the end of life evolution on this planet. We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways.“
    – Dr. Robert Muller, UN Assistant Secretary General

    „Nations are in effect ceding portions of their sovereignty to the international community and beginning to create a new system of international environmental governance as a means of solving otherwise unmanageable crises.“
    – Lester Brown, WorldWatch Institute

    „A keen and anxious awareness is evolving to suggest that fundamental changes will have to take place in the world order and its power structures, in the distribution of wealth and income.“
    – Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

    „Adopting a central organizing principle means embarking on an all-out effort to use every policy and program, every law and institution, to halt the destruction of the environment.“
    – Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

    „Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced – a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.“
    – UN Agenda 21

  12. OMG

    After seeing the 10:10 video we know that they don’t give a d*** about people’s lives.
    But that they now praise people for committing genocide is really frightening.

    Next time when some eco-fascist loses it, he will get a medal instead of time.

  13. In this case, the mega-rich behind the curtain is one Jeff Skoll.


    Founder of Participant Media and billionaire through his E-Bay fortunes. Again, funny how the mega-rich promote the virtues of depopulation.

    This meeting would have been scary apart from a couple of things: firstly there were only about 50 people there, and secondly most ordinary people would dismiss the speakers and most of the attendees as utterly bonkers.

    If you look at the way they operate, locally or internationally, they know full well that “turkeys don’t vote for Christmas” and so have become masters at bypassing “democracy”.

    As for numbers, send five of the “about 50 people there” to the right conference and you have UN Agenda 21 and then its implementation in local schools. Did you vote for it at any election? Did any party mention it at election time? Did the parents of school children authorise or vote for it?

    They are a cancer and as long as they can get funding they will spread. Like cancer though, they eventually destroy the host and in that sense they are self limiting. They are totally reliant on the “affluence” they seek to destroy.
