"It's the great taboo of environmentalism: the size and growth of the human population. It has a profound impact on all life on Earth, yet for decades it has been conspicuously absent from public debate."
Feeney admits to past mistakes in population control, but doesn't give details. Maybe he's thinking of such cases as those that documented by The Native American Woman's Health Education Resource Center.
"A study by the Government Accounting Office during the 1970s found widespread sterilization abuse in four areas served by the IHS. In 1975 alone, some 25,000 Native American women were permanently sterilized--many after being coerced, misinformed, or threatened."
In this paper on the subject, Michael Sullivan DeFine states:
"The purpose of this article is to trace the historical influence of governmentally funded sterilization from the beginning of the eugenics movement in the 19th century to see how this effects Native American women today. This topic will investigate the social prejudices and rationalizations for sterilization of the "less-talented" members of society advocated by the most influential social and biological scientists in American history. "
Notwithstanding any supposed taboo, population control has been extensively practiced in the last few decades., and was implemented by the kind of eminent scientists Feeney wants us to listen to now, so remember when they talk about population control, you are part of the population and the control they seek is over you.
