Bill Nye is the front man for evolution, “climate change,” and everything that a Leftist could love. He has considered an argument that would penalize people who have more than a necessary number of children. The scientists he interviews argue that children put pressure on the environment. The best way to alleviate that pressure is to have fewer children, if not by choice then certainly by compulsion.
During a panel discussion, Nye asked: “Should we have policies that penalize people for having extra kids in the developed world?”
Travis Rieder, a bioethicist at Johns Hopkins University, said, “I do think that we should at least consider it.”
“Well, ‘at least consider it’ is like ‘Do it,’” Nye responded. (New York Post)
With this type of scientific knowledge, it’s not surprising that Oregon Gov. Kate Brown “plans to sign a sweeping, unprecedented bill requiring insurers to provide free abortions for their customers, including illegal immigrants.” (Washington Times) And who will pay for killing these unborn babies? “Free” means you and me with higher insurance premiums.
Think about this for a moment. A governor of a state, along with its Democrat Party majority, is compelling insurance companies to fund the killing of unborn babies!
Professor Kimberly Nicholas is the Sustainability Professor at Lund University in Sweden. Here’s an exchange that took place during an NPR interview:
Kimberly Nicholas: The single biggest impact that we found was from having a child. The reason for that is because that measure accounts for all the choices that that child would make in their life and their descendants.
NPR Host Steve Inskeep: What did you think and feel when you reached that conclusion?
Nicholas: Certainly, it’s not my place as a scientist to dictate choices for other people, but it is my place to do the analysis and report it fairly. Something really important we found is that most government recommendations weren’t really talking about what made the biggest difference, and they weren’t quantifying how big of a difference it made.
