Climate One founder Greg Dalton and the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) Christiana Figueres, held a discussion in 2013 on the role of women in fighting Global Warming.

During the interview Secretary Figueres stated, We should should “make every effort,” to reduce the world’s population in an effort to fight Climate Change:

DALTON: A related issue is fertility rates in population. A lot of people in energy and environmental circles don’t wanna go near that because it’s politically charged. It’s not their issue. But isn’t it true that stopping the rise of the population would be one of the biggest levers and driving the rise of green house gases?

FIGUERES: I mean we all know that we expect nine billion, right, by 2050. So, yes, obviously less people would exert less pressure on the natural resources.

DALTON: So is nine billion a forgone conclusion? That’s like baked in, done, no way to change that?

FIGUERES: Well there again, there is pressure in the system to go toward that; we can definitely change those, right? We can definitely change those numbers and really should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity, today. To say nothing of adding more population that is really going to overextend our capacity. So yes we should do everything possible. But we cannot fall into the very simplistic opinion of saying just by curtailing population then we’ve solved the problem. It is not either/or, it is an and/also.

  • What a genocidal termagant.

  • StarTripper

    We are letting Iran get a nuke. I think we have done our part to decrease the population.

    • xcapeil

      When, in fact, Iran should have received a large supply of our nukes, drop-shipped.

          Stay on task. Work with us here. Stop promoting your own agenda! Keep to the subject!

  • ferebetv

    Let us start with the 1% right now

    • BadBruceLorraine

      The 1% won’t reduce world population, although it’s a good start. Add the lefty’s in
      and it’s a done deal.

      • ferebetv

        Add communist, fascist, Nazis, Fabian socialists and Rothschild Zionists!

        • BadBruceLorraine

          Sounds like a plan 😉

    • MarcusWoodson

      Let us start with Obama voters. Right now

  • ScienceABC123

    Attention Christiana Figueres, the 1970s called. They want their “Zero Population Growth” meme back.

  • TheMule61

    I guess we should be grateful that they’re finally being honest about the real agenda behind their climate silliness. I agree that overpopulation is a serious problem. But it’s not causing catastrophic climate change. Overpopulation is a problem unto itself. Why they wasted so many years on this ridiculous climate cult madness is beyond me.

  • randian

    What he really means is “we need to decrease white population”. No way he means to reduce the population of the holy brown people.

  • ChrisInDenver

    Saw a show about some climbers draping some type of cloth over a glacier to keep it from melting. Really. LOL.

    Climate loons. They live among us.

  • Crookedheadcritter

    You first fruit loop.

  • #Dems are Cockroaches

    Once Obunghole and the UN move all of the world’s excess population into the US then it should be a fairly easy procedure to eliminate them.

  • Some Rabbit

    Good news, Obama has made great strides in helping the Muslim world get atomic bombs. They should find them more efficient than cutting throats, though not as satisfying.

    Too bad she cant start with her parents

    Progressive intelligencia at it’s finest. It is really hard to believe these people are in charge of anything.

  • oldguy

    And to think all the snake had to do is offer an apple.

  • Art Lowe

    If these people want to reduce the worlds population, then as leaders they should show the world how it is done, by getting rid of themselves and their families first, but you can bet these so called leaders of the world, wouldn’t do that now would they… they are hypocrites of the worst kind.

  • olddog

    start with the UN and then the (D)ung eating (D)em-wits…rid the Mother Earth of Mutant (D)NA and their Carbon PAW-PRINT thingy..WIN..WIN..

    Greg Dalton should man-up and do his part to decrease the population by jumping into a volcano. Rev AlGore is worried that the non-believers may threaten his income.

  • A show for Kids… propaganda?

    A new study “suggest” this global warming thing is due to hot women. The recent data has shown that the ozone layer isn’t to blame for global warming trends, and scientists are looking in a new direction – at hot women. Let me explain, back in the day…
