A noted expert on human population and its impact on the Earth says contrary to popular left-wing opinion, children are our future because they are important to our survival.
Steven Mosher of the Population Research Institute was contacted by OneNewsNow after Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented that humans should reconsider having children in light of our unknown future due to climate change.
Speaking during a livestream from her kitchen, the proponent of the Green New Deal opined that there is “scientific consensus" that children will have difficulty coping on a future planet Earth, "and it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question."
That question is, she added, “Is it okay to still have children?”
"The climate is constantly changing," Mosher responds. "It's always getting a little warmer, a little colder, and if it does get a little warmer over the next few decades I think that we can deal with it in a measured, rational way and without telling young people they should stop having children."
The 29-year-old congresswoman is, in fact, repeating a warning that dates back decades before she was born, when alarmists claimed the Earth was running out of food, fossil fuels, and clean water.
Obama-era science advisor John Holdren famously warned in the 1970s about a "population crisis" and suggested "compulsory abortions" and forced sterilizations to control the population.
Going back farther, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger cited an overpopulated planet, and a scarcity of resources, as a reason for birth control during the early 20th century.
OneNewsNow reported in a 2017 story that feminist icon Gloria Steinem was warning about "climate deprivation" and blamed the world's population.
Mosher, meanwhile, has his own solution for population concerns.
"There's a society for the Voluntary Human Extinction," he says, "and I think that the society should offer Ocasio-Cortez an honorary membership."
