At the ongoing climate change summit in Cancun, Mexico, Turner told attendees:
…environmental stress on the Earth requires radical solutions, suggesting countries should follow China’s lead in instituting a one-child policy to reduce global population over time. He added that fertility rights could be sold so that poor people could profit from their decision not to reproduce.
Since that one-child policy is working out so well in China?
How exactly does Ted propose to enforce the reproductive restrictions on (apparently only) poor people?
If a poor family sells its fertility rights and then says the hell with it and produces a few more children, does the government confiscate the “extra” kids? Who then pays to raise those kids? Or does the government force the poor to undergo sterilization upon selling their fertility rights? Hasn’t eugenics long since been discredited?
Apparently not, when it comes to Ted’s thinking.
