John Podesta: “We Must Reduce World’s Population”

John Podesta calls for depopulation of humans

Former Clinton campaign chair John Podesta has outlined plans to implement a controversial eugenics program in order to depopulate the planet. 

Writing for the Washington Post, Podesta claims that reducing the world’s population is not only desirable, but absolutely necessary in order to “reduce carbon emissions by 2050.”

Writing for WaPo, Podesta writes:

When we talk about stepping up to address climate change across the world, we rarely think of it in terms of women’s rights. But if environmental activists really want to reduce emissions, raise living standards and build a more sustainable future, they cannot overlook the importance of reproductive rights and health.

Forging a coalition between the environmental movement and the women’s rights movement will not only fundamentally advance women’s rights but also do a world of good for the planet, which is bearing an environmental burden because of population growth.

It took 200,000 years for the human population to reach 2 billion in 1940 but only 75 years afterward for it to nearly triple to 7.6 billion people. The world gains 83 million inhabitants annually. That’s roughly the equivalent of another Chicago every two weeks, another Germany every year and another China every 16 years.

Population projection experts estimate a worst-case scenario in which we grow by 70 percent and reach a population of 13 billion people by the end of the century. But if we continue to invest in sensible international family-planning programs and accept the challenge of meeting the needs of women and families, we could potentially stabilize the population at below 10 billion.

Giving women across the globe access to reproductive rights and health is a moral imperative. Too many women in too many places, including the United States, still have unmet demands for access to family-planning resources. Estimates indicate that more than 200 million women want to prevent or delay pregnancy but aren’t using effective contraception. Access to reproductive health services can ensure women have more autonomy over their lives and bodies and ultimately help move the world toward greater gender parity.

Recent research has reinforced the understanding of the benefits of helping families plan the timing, spacing and number of their children. Brown University researchers showed that slowing population growth can enhance economic outcomes and reduce emissions simultaneously. In Nigeria, researchers found that achieving low fertility by 2050 could increase per capita income by 10 percent. Other studies have estimated that meeting the demand for family planning worldwide could potentially reduce carbon emissions in 2050 by 16 to 29 percent — the equivalent of ending worldwide deforestation today.

In fact, family planning ranks as one of the 10 most substantive solutions to climate change, according to a recent analysis of peer-reviewed research. In addition to being cost-effective from an emissions reduction perspective, the co-benefits to women and families across the globe are enormous.

That’s why 193 countries at the United Nations committed to universal access to sexual and reproductive health care as part of the 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

Indeed, family planning, gender equality and maternal health targets in the SDGs reflect American leadership and values, which helped forge a global consensus over many years of development cooperation.

And yet, one of President Trump’s first acts in office was to widely expand the “global gag rule,” which blocks federal funding to any global health organization that provides, counsels on or advocates legal abortion services, including those providing family-planning services, HIV treatment and vaccinations.

These actions risk sacrificing American leadership and demand cooperation among other American actors and the rest of the world. This is where women’s rights activists and environmental activists have a powerful opportunity to push back and align their resources.

In addition to making family planning and reproductive health services universally available, we need to ensure that every child receives primary and secondary education and that we end the scourge of child marriage. New data from the United Nations found that if girls in the developing world all received secondary education, we would see a 42 percent decline in the fertility rate.

All of this is possible with broad public- and private-sector cooperation if foundations, governments, nongovernmental organizations and countless communities can forge a partnership to advance these goals and deliver the services needed to realize them.

American environmentalists and women’s rights advocates have every reason to feel under siege by the Trump administration. But this is all the more reason to find common cause in fighting for healthy women and a healthy planet.

Progress is made possible when groups that have long focused on single issues join forces to build fairer, more sustainable economies and societies.

      My sentiments exactly.

    • elizabeth frantes

      Oh, don’t worry, Mother Nature bats last, and the dumber they are, the harder they die, dearie. Go ahead, deny overpopulation. Be a good little cancer cell. People like you are why Carcinoma Sapiens is doomed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3C-ERBfCms

      • Andy

        Aww….poor sweetie……another melanoma offering to reduce the count by 2 are we through self sacrifice?….BTW….one never denied over population….one just offered Johhny boy to practice his preaching and take the lead in his preachings……a bit like your good self should if that is that you think it would help?….it certainly would be a contribution by your good self would it not?

        • elizabeth frantes

          There is nothing wrong with you a C4 enema can’t cure.

          • Andy

            likewise a Semtex tampon for your good self ma’am….i’m sure there’ll be space to accommodate it, amongst other things contained there

  • Mar Drafting Corporation

    He got to be an example of what he means, a nice beginning would be killing him self.

  • Mary Shinn

    Air quality trumps life! Check under mylordandgod, YouTube removed a video about Poesta’s pronouncement. He forgets God has revealed, children are a blessing. Another fact, Podesta’s mother was not for a woman’s right to choose abortion, killing the child inside her like he is and his boss HRC.

    • elizabeth frantes

      Jesus didn’t have any kids.

      • linnilu

        And I pray you don’t

        • elizabeth frantes

          I didn’t. Had one turned out like you, I’d have to perform a post natal abortion. So sorry your mama didn’t swallow. That’s why you suck, dearie.

          • Andy

            awww….the lonely spinster….always lonely and denies herself the maternal instinct….or were you just incapable, be it genetically or ‘the ugly sister’…..so sad sweetie

  • Trust no1

    Hello,
    how about we stop the carbon emissions of those Demons Obama,Clintons,Soros,Podesta,Merkel and all the other enemies of humanity?

    • Paula Heady

      The US maintains over 800 military bases worldwide; those bases consume massive amounts of fossil fuels and they are not remotely about defense; they are about offense, about global economic and political domination. I am for reducing them to less than 80.

      • linnilu

        The best defense is a good offense.

      • baruchzed

        40% of US carbon emissions are from our military.

    • MidgardMortal

      And the Red names to that list and I agree with both.

  • donnaj590

    Podesta is a creep and I would wear a garland of garlic around my neck if he came within 100 miles of me.

    • elizabeth frantes

      Ad hiominem attacks don’t affect the validity of what he says, dearie. http://www.drhern.com/pdfs/humancancerplanet.pdf

        and following his mantra like a good slave you are doesn’t mean his calculations are correct

  • Mollie Norris

    An excellent comment on the Washington Post’s cesspool journalism; the anti-human, anti-social opinion of a felon satanist pedophile torturer is a newsworthy input on global population.

  • Roberto Deramo

    These psychopath’s cant make up their mind…..

    “ALL white countries need muslims to raise the birth rate!!!” OR “We need to kill lots of people so we can stop carbon emissions!!”

    Why dont they just pony up??? Y’all want ALL the white folks dead or slaves.

    I’m buying more ammo……

    • Andy C

      They want no white people for one; because a greater proportion of white people have a high enough intelligence threshold to work out their games, work out their games and collate evidence on it, and to act as effective leaders against. Not that other races don’t as well have significant levels, but what other race don’t have is the targeting of their anti-gentilism. Ethnic or religious judaics are, too often, too regularly, by and large anti-gentile, and that means anti white. Thus there are lot of horrific quotes and a 2 1/2 hour long video with them admitting to, admitting to orchastrating white genocide https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=aec_1508296335

    • Paula Heady

      Western Europe colonized, pillaged, raped, and exterminated entire populations around the world. There is no such thing as “white” people. Perhaps you are speaking of the tribes of Europe. Race is entirely a social construct, an anthropological method of codification. Western Europe is still attempting to dominate the world, not only failing, but destroying the viability of much of the planet to sustain human life. Their great advances are killing them and millions of others. The answer seems always to be to sterilize people of color all over the world while taking the proposed reproductive rights of US women away from them. A bit of a conflict there.

      • elizabeth frantes

        Yeah, so that justifies that conduct? Hope you enjoy being raped and pillaged yourself, Paula.

        • Andy

          sounds like you tried it….and liked it….!

  • anonymous4u4me

    Lead by example then you, your entire family and circle of friends should commit suicide and get the ball rolling.

      • Andy

        you linked this already…..is your pre programmed mind algorithm slightly faulty??…..cognitive dissonance can be cured by Logos you know….try it

  • Reason

    Widespread distribution of Depo Provera and the pill is the appropriate family planning that should be provided. Supporting abortion in other countries is unethical and immoral. Only the UN can advocate for even the widespread distribution of contraceptives to have any moral authority. Here are the estimates by region of population growth. Note, neither North America nor Europe are the issue:

    Depopulation is one of the main objectives of the Zionist NWO, along with one world gov, they also want to destroy the Kaaba in Mecca, why? Because the Kaaba is the center of the world, NASA discovered it, they were able to see an infinite radiation coming out of The Kaaba even from mars and Keeps going on. RESEARCH IT!!

    • Andy C

      No they didn’t, and don’t, a lot of posts from people like you keep claiming it. The only centre of a ball, is inside it and NASA claim the world is a globe. You guys only ever say ‘research’ it, your links all point to echo chambers, nothing goes to NASA. What little does, goes to unrelated NASA pages.

    • ILUVUSA2

      Kaaba is not the center of the world. Delusional. Please stop chasing the unicorn.

  • Black Swan

    Start with the convicted Psychopathic Pedophile Population around the Globe to help alleviate overcrowding.

  • Robdon07

    A great start would be reducing the world population by 2, him and his sick fat pos brother. Two pedophiles/one stone

  • ILUVUSA2

    It seems that the Clintons and their Clinton “Foundation” have a good start on reducing the world’s population, but you would know more, Podesta.

    To all those that support eugenics. Lead by example and off yourselves first!

  • Darin

    Hard to find the date of this propoganda

  • Paula Heady

    The discussion of Nigeria is very interesting because the fact of the matter is that Nigeria already lost half of its entire population to HIV/AIDs. I may be the only person who notices which populations he advises must be reduced, nevertheless, the facts remain.
