New York Times Highlights “Paradigm Shift” of Declining Global Fertility Rates

Fails to mention potential environmental causes.

The New York Times has published a lengthy article revealing how the world is undergoing a “paradigm shift” of rapidly declining fertility rates, but fails to mention the possibility that environmental pollutants such as plastic chemicals are playing any role in the decline.

In an article entitled ‘Long Slide Looms for World Population, With Sweeping Ramifications’, the NYT reveals how there is a global “fertility bust” which represents “a dizzying reversal unmatched in recorded history that will make first-birthday parties a rarer sight than funerals, and empty homes a common eyesore.”

The piece notes how a demographic time bomb has the potential to cause social and economic catastrophe, but celebrates the notion that it would be good for the environment.

“A planet with fewer people could ease pressure on resources, slow the destructive impact of climate change and reduce household burdens for women,” write the authors.

The authors highlight how virtually every area of the world except for Africa, where the population will continue to grow, will be hit by rapidly dropping fertility rates.

“Like an avalanche, the demographic forces — pushing toward more deaths than births — seem to be expanding and accelerating,” states the piece, adding, “Demographers now predict that by the latter half of the century or possibly earlier, the global population will enter a sustained decline for the first time.”

Nowhere in the lengthy article is it mentioned that there could be cultural or environmental factors causing the drop in birth rates or anything beyond prosaic economic factors.

As we previously highlighted, a top environmental scientist recently warned that plastic pollution is shrinking penises and making men infertile, meaning most of them won’t be able to produce sperm by 2045.

“Phathalates mimic the hormone oestrogen and thus disrupt the natural production of hormones in the human body, which researchers have linked to interference in sexual development in infants and behaviours in adults,” reported Sky News.

The chemical, which is used to make plastics more flexible, is being transmitted to humans via toys, food and other items.

Exposure to such chemicals has also worsened as a result of face masks becoming ubiquitous since the start of the COVID pandemic.

Last year, a CNN piece acknowledged that if sperm was an animal it might be “heading toward extinction in western nations” and that one of the potential causes of testosterone and sperm counts are plummeting across Europe and North America was “pollution and chemicals in our food, clothes and water.”

The establishment has also relentlessly promoted the ‘virtues’ of not having children to westerners for decades, one of the latest examples being a piece about “the benefits of being single” published by CNN on Valentine’s Day.

The NYT piece also completely fails to mention how many of the same people now pushing global warming alarmism also pushed the ‘population bomb’ myth for decades from the 1960’s onwards.

America’s fertility rate currently stands at 1.8 births per woman.

From 2007 to 2011 the fertility rate in the U.S. declined 9% in the space of just 4 years.

In 2016, the U.S. fertility rate fell to 59.8 births per 1,000 women, the lowest since records began.

Fertility rates for white women were down in every US state in 2017, while among black and Hispanic women, fertility rates were up in 12 and 29 states, respectively.

Every Single Senate Democrat Just Voted Against Defining Pregnancy As A Biologically Female Process

The party of science!

Published

on

During the passage of Joe Biden’s ‘Inflation Increasing Reduction Act’ in the Senate Sunday, all 50 Democrats voted against an amendment that sought to define pregnancy as a uniquely biologically female process.

The amendment was introduced by GOP Senator Marco Rubio, who noted “The only people capable of being pregnant are biological females, and therefore, I think federal pregnancy programs should be limited to biological females, and that’s what this would do.”

“A few minutes ago, I looked back across 5,500 years of human history, and so far, every single human pregnancy has been biological female,” Rubio continued.

The Senator further stated “And therefore, the only thing I’m trying to do is make sure that federal law is clear, since every pregnancy that’s ever existed has been in a biological females, and that our federal laws reflect that pregnancy programs are available to the only people who are capable of getting pregnant: biological females.”

Democratic Senator Patty Murray responded to Rubio, stating “it’s actually outrageous that Republicans are trying to talk about pregnancy when in this country right now, they are forcing women to stay pregnant no matter their circumstances, pushing cruel and extreme abortion bans.”

Watch:

While all 50 Republicans voted in favour, all 50 Democrats voted against.

Which one is the ‘party of science‘ again?

    Rand Paul Calls For “Restrictions On Exporting DNA Technology To Communist China”

    Says he has assembled “an elite group of scientists” to testify at gain of function hearing

    Senator Rand Paul has called for restricting the exporting of DNA technology to China in the same way nuclear technology to the Communist regime is restricted.

    Speaking on Fox News Tuesday, Paul was explaining the intentions of his Senate Health Committee Gain of Function hearing, which begins today.

    “Before we even get whether the virus came from a lab we have to explore, were they doing gain-of-function research?” Paul said.

    The Senator continued, “Were they taking viruses, mixing them with unknown viruses and creating more lethal viruses or viruses that were more infectious or transmissible. I say without question they were doing this. Anthony Fauci says they weren’t.”

    Paul further noted, “Tomorrow we will have the first gain-of-function hearing on Capitol Hill, the first exploration of this topic in two years. A million Americans died and we have not had one single hearing.”

    “Tomorrow we have the first hearing and I’ll ask three scientists, very esteemed scientists, scientists with hundreds of peer-reviewed papers, editors of journals. This is an elite group of scientists that will be there tomorrow,” Paul asserted.

    “I’m going to ask them was it gain-of-function research that was going on in Wuhan. That doesn’t prove it came from a lab but it proves that dangerous research was happening there and that it could have come from a lab,” the Senator vowed.

    “My question is even if we don’t know for certain, let’s say it is 50/50, that’s still a big probability that it came from a lab. At that point, wouldn’t we want to make sure we’re controlling [it]?” Paul further urged.

    He further explained “We have restrictions on exporting nuclear technology. Should we have restrictions on exporting DNA technology to Communist China? I think yes.”

    Watch:

    As we highlighted earlier this week, Anthony Fauci is complaining that Americans are refusing to “adhere” to COVID restrictions, while asserting that everyone should STILL be wearing masks indoors.

    Last week Fauci told Paul that he could “go ahead” and investigate all he wants.

    “If they’re going to investigate me, I’d like to ask ‘investigate me for what’?” Fauci said, adding “For telling people to get vaccinated? For telling people to wear a mask? For telling people to abide by common sense, good public health practices?”

    China Researching Creepy AI Face Recognition Technology Which Detects ‘Party Loyalty’

    Technocrats in the west licking their lips.

    Published

    on

    Reclaim the Net

    Researchers in China are developing technology that uses AI face recognition to determine a citizen’s loyalty to the ‘party’ and their subservience to state brainwashing.

    Yes, really.

    A video posted by the Hefei Comprehensive Science Center which was subsequently deleted showed researchers using such technology to “discern the level of acceptance for ideological and political education.”

    “Communist Party members can then be assessed in the levels of “determination to be grateful to the party, listen to the party and follow the party,” reports the Telegraph.

    After receiving negative attention, the video was removed from the institute’s website and Chinese censors began scrubbing all mention of it from social media sites.

    “The video showed a researcher viewing content extolling the CCP on a TV screen as his face biometrics data, skin electrical responses, and brain signal information is collected by the AI program,” writes Will Henney.

    The data collected by the program then ranks a person’s “learning attentiveness” and “emotional identification,” thereby determining if they need to be further re-educated in order to display the proper level of support for the government.

    As ever, technocrats in the west will be licking their lips at the prospect of one day launching similar programs under the guise of a new social credit score.

    The program bring flashbacks of the Department of Homeland’s Security’s ludicrous post-9/11 “gait analysis” program, which proclaimed to be able to detect future terrorists and criminals by the way they walked.

    As we document in the video below, millions of Chinese people are already prevented from engaging in basic lifestyle activities, such as buying plane and train tickets, due to their political opinions.

    As we highlighted earlier, mirroring China’s social credit system, an MP in the UK is trying to pass a law that would force social media platforms to assign users a ‘truth score’ which would then determine the veracity of their posts.
