WTF? Concerns Grow Over Global Population And Wearing Clothes — Climate Activism Is Getting REALLY Weird…

Written by K. Walker on November 6, 2019

So, we’re supposed to cull the weak and walk around nude now? Ummm… how about no.

In addition to causing anxiety in children, climate activists with their end-of-the-world hysteria are pushing all sorts of things that are just awful.

They don’t want you to have pets.

They want you to eat disgusting things like highly-processed meat substitutes, bugs, and even dead people.

But no hot dogs, bacon, or beef for you!

They want you to stop heating your home, driving your car, or taking a vacation.

They are afraid to have children and now, they don’t want you to, either. “Scientists” have said that it is absolutely vital to decrease the “surplus” population by having governments implement population control.

How very China One-Child Policy of them.

More than 11,000 experts from around the world are calling for a critical addition to the main strategy of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy: there needs to be far fewer humans on the planet.

“We declare, with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from around the world, clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency,” the scientists wrote in a stark warning published Tuesday in the journal BioScience.

The scientists make specific calls for policymakers to quickly implement systemic change to energy, food, and economic policies. But they go one step further, into the politically fraught territory of population control. It “must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity,” they write.

Really? 11,000 scientists all agree, do they?

I have a bold suggestion.

But it’s not just that. The fact that you wear clothes, dear Reader, is enough to make you complicit in climate change. So you had better find some “green” options for your clothing or you might be getting chilly with winter around the corner…

The clothing and footwear industry is responsible for 8 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, nearly the same as the entire European Union, according to a study by the environmental services group Quantis. Without abrupt intervention, the industry’s impact on the climate is on track to increase by almost half by 2030.

Clothes are easy to ignore because they are made far away and have throughout history been made by enslaved, unpaid and low-paid laborers, often by women. But clothing affects every other environmental problem we care about. Let’s say you wear a cotton T-shirt — it required thousands of gallons of water to make. If that T-shirt is viscose rayon, it may well have come from a tree felled in the Amazon (viscose rayon is made from plants). And if it’s polyester, acrylic or nylon, you’re wearing plastic. When those plastic clothes get washed, they junk up our oceans with microplastic pollution.

I’m sure that this will also apply to the high-end fashion houses, right?

Funny how these rules don’t seem to apply to the activists themselves, right?

It’s because they’re the ones that have to jet around and live their extravagant lives in order to “solve” the problem.

If they had their way, we’d live in a dystopian hell-hole.
