global warming 1A university professor in Great Britain says she has the solution for ending climate change: Humans need to stop having babies and die off.

Professor Patricia MacCormack, who teaches philosophy at Anglia Ruskin University, claims global overpopulation is harming the planet therefore fewer humans would help it heal.

Fear of an overpopulated earth dates back at least to the 1970s, an era when environmentalists were warning of a coming Ice Age, but MacCormack has told the media she is not advocating for killing off the human population – just ending anymore births. 

Responding to such claims, longtime conservative activist Janice Crouse says that irrational idea contradicts the Bible's edict to have man subdue the earth and have dominion over every living thing.

"I think the progressives don't like the fact that the Bible is our authority,” Crouse tells OneNewsNow. “They think that they are bringing a new perspective and a perspective that gives them greater significance than even the Holy Bible."

MacCormack’s warning prompted a commentary from AFR host Bryan Fischer, who also suggests MacCormack’s plea for fewer humans contradicts God’s instruction to populate the earth. In the column, he calls such left-wing environmentalists “eco-fascists” because a fascist is someone who “allows you to own your home, your own car, your own garden, but insists on telling you how to manage it.”

Crouse views the professor’s views as a mix of religion, veganism, and identity politics – all ideas pushed by the Far Left.

According to Fischer, the bottom line is that people must choose between the professor’s views or the biblical views of mankind.

“She certainly sounds whack and she probably is,” Fischer writes. “But what she believes, on the whole, is mainstream environmentalism, that animal life is superior to human life, that man is an invasive, non-native species that threatens the entire environment.”
