Strong statement, I know.
What would you say if I told you that climate change activists recently held a funeral for a melting glacier in Iceland?
On August 18, Icelandic officials, climate activists and others said farewell to a melted glacier, with poetry, moments of silence and political speeches about the urgent need to fight climate change. The glacier was pronounced dead in 2018, and it was time for a proper burial. A death certificate was provided for the made-for-media memorial.
It was a sad moment. After all, glaciers are people too. But, apparently children with Down’s Syndrome aren’t. The small European nation recently drew international scrutiny for its nearly 100-percent abortion rate for unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome.
The deadly discriminatory practice drew massive outrage from across the world, but Iceland lawmakers did not react by passing protections for unborn babies. Quite the opposite, earlier this year, they voted to expand abortions.
Then, on Sunday, Prime Minister Katrin Jokobsdottier joined other political leaders, scientists and environmental activists to hold a “funeral” for a melting glacier, The Connect News reports. No word on whether the glacier had a last will, or surviving family members.
Almost on cue, after the dearly departed glacier was pronounced dead and funeral arrangements were being made, the Pope issued a public statement that climate change would lead to inevitable water shortages around the world. (By the way, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, the Pope’s 2015 religio-political environmental encyclical could pave the way for the New Green Deal to be implemented.)
In his message for World Water Day 2019, the pope called for education of future generations with greater respect for the environment and a greater awareness of the suffering caused by climate change.
Wait, if a glacier dies where does it go? According to the Bible we don’t believe it goes directly to heaven or hell. Doesn’t it return to…..water?
I was going to talk about the Brazilian President’s recent suggestion to fight climate change—reduce your bowel movements to every other day—but instead let’s focus on the latest socialist egghead outburst.
During CNN’s climate change town halls last night, a teacher named Martha Readyoff asked Sanders if he would support making population control part of his climate-change agenda. Sanders’ reply:
"The answer is yes and the answer has everything to do with the fact that women — in the United States of America, by the way — have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions," Sanders replied.
"And the Mexico City agreement, which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control, to me is totally absurd. So I think especially in poor countries around the world, where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to limit the number of kids they have -- something I very, very strongly support," he said.
Bottom line: Bernie Sanders says he'd back US funding for Third World abortions, birth control as part of climate plan.
On another note, even less appetizing, Swedish behavioural scientist Magnus Söderlund has suggested that eating other people after they die could be a means of combatting climate change.
The (stark-raving mad) scientist mentioned the possibility of cannibalism during a broadcast on Swedish television channel TV4 this week about a fair in Stockholm regarding “food of the future”.
Söderlund is set to hold seminars at the event, entitled “Gastro Summit — about the future of food” where he intends to discuss the possibility of eating people in the name of cutting down greenhouse emissions.
According to his research, the main problem with the idea is the widespread taboo of eating human flesh and said that conservative attitudes could make it hard to convince Swedes at large to take up the practice of cannibalism. Huh???
I rest my case.
