Paul Gilding describes himself as an,
He is not a scientist, nor does he appear to participate in any sort of productive industry.
He is a modern day Malthusian evangelist - preaching the limits of population growth as hysterically as Thomas Malthus did over 200 years ago, warning of imminent societal collapse.
John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office
of Science and Technology Policy, who in 1977 ludicrously concluded
that the United States would collapse when its population reached
"280 million in 2040."
It is analytical, theoretical, and compiled by men who have little experiential knowledge of how the world actually functions.
They are priests and evangelists perched
in ivory towers and behind podiums shouting out their patently false
conclusions to the crowds before them. Their resumes are devoid of
accomplishments in applied science and technology, and instead
filled with ridiculous predictions and "academia" that have
humiliatingly and repeatedly been proven false.
Like many cults and
organized religions before them, they shift the burden of
reconciling "sin" onto its growing flock of followers instead of
taking responsibility for its own actions, resultant from perpetual
A recent report published by investigative journalist Patrick Henningsen titled "Big Green Oil Money: WWF founded and run by Royal Dutch-Shell," exposes how yet another denomination of the Church of Malthus is indeed funded by Wall Street and London.
It should be
noted that the WWF is linked directly to the "Global Footprint
This is not some sort of new culture of "corporate
responsibility" but just the latest in a long line of lies told by
banking and industrial cartels to market their products and services
to an infinitely exploited and purposefully misled population.
Beneath its surface are geological processes that literally turn the planet inside-out over the ages through tectonic shifts and the volcanism that results. When land is thrust up above sea-level resulting in the creation of an island, it in turn shifts weather patterns.
Atmospheric moisture that would otherwise carry on until
it reached landfall upon the ever shifting major continents of
Earth, would instead condense and fall due to new variations in
pressure and temperature.
Collectively these geological changes result in new global weather patterns.
Weather patterns then directly affect biological adaptation. Species that lived in previously cool regions may adapt significantly to deal with an increase in regional temperatures.
Their ecosystem may be so vastly
affected in such a short period of time, some species may even go
extinct - a process that has been ongoing long before man arrived.
To illustrate this, we can look at the state of planet Earth in terms of biology, geology, and climatology, approximately 65 million years ago, where the continents we now know today were already taking recognizable shape.
CO2 levels were over 10 times what they are now, and sea levels were so high that North America featured an inland sea centered on what is now the Mississippi River.
Global temperatures were also many times
greater than they are today, so much so, that Antarctica despite
already shifting to Earth's southern pole,
was covered in temperate
forests and was home to a thriving dinosaur population.
Therefore, the concept of "normality" in Earth's climate is a ridiculous notion.
The best one could do is claim that the indefinitely changing weather and biodiversity of the planet is being altered by human activity before proving how weather would have naturally changed and how it is now artificially changing. Since the ideological doctrine of the Church of Malthus is an irrational climate "status quo" it is clear that their conclusions and the "science" used to arrive at them are significantly flawed.
As we will later see, real
environmental damage is being done by human activity, but by
precisely the sponsors of
the charlatans pushing "anthropogenic
Another factor conveniently overlooked by the Church of Malthus's priest class, is the role the Sun plays in driving not only Earth's climate, but the climate of extraterrestrial planets such as Mars and the moons of the jovian planets (gas giants), such as Titan of Saturn.
The Sun, like all stars, is a fusion reaction that exhibits drastically different characteristics throughout its life-cycle. Additionally, the internal cycles and anomalies that occur within the Sun on a daily basis are just now being examined and understood by stellar astronomers.
Variations in the Sun's intensity, however minute, can
have wide-ranging affects on planetary climate throughout the entire
Additionally, observations of the gravitational effects gas giant Jupiter has on its moons' geology also hold profound implications regarding Earth's geology, and subsequently the climate affected by that geology.
Jupiter's pull on
it's moons is so great that it literally causes tidal shifts of
their mantles in the same way the sea is affected by tidal forces of
Earth's moon. These forces are so great, the friction caused by the
moons' flexing mantle so extreme, it creates volcanism on a scale
that dwarfs any volcanic display seen on Earth.
The moon's distance from Earth
is constantly changing, thus its effect on Earth's geology is also
in constant flux - and adds yet another variable to the very
incomplete calculus used by "environmentalists" and "climatologists"
who insist CO2 emissions from human activity are the primary drivers
of an otherwise "static climate."
Not only do they do this in order to sell their version of "indulgences" in the form of ineffectual "carbon credits," and to assert their control over society in what they themselves call a planetary regime (Ecoscience, pages 942-943, 1977), but they are ignoring naturally driven climate change and the consequences that may indeed jeopardize human civilization.
priest class and their political and monetary "solutions" leaves
civilization with no plans or contingencies in the event that the
conditions seen during the Cretaceous period revisit us once again.
...will do absolutely nothing to stop
climate change, but it is a great way for
an elitist oligarchy to
exercise megalomaniacal domination over humanity, as dreamed of by
all tyrants since the dawn of human civilization.
It is not being destroyed, as we would be led to believe, by people having children, consuming natural resources, or expelling carbon dioxide (CO2). Instead, it is demonstratively being destroyed by reckless genetic engineering by big-agricultural corporations like Monsanto and Syngenta.
It is being demonstratively destroyed by immense,
ludicrously centralized supply chains like those of
Coca-Cola supplying the world with poisoned sugar water.
It is being destroyed by a military-industrial complex covering its ever-expanding global theater of war with depleted uranium, possessing a half-life of billions of years thus effectively contaminating our environment forever.
Mega-industrial conglomerates like General Electric
building subpar nuclear power plants on fault-lines, and governments
failing to make necessary upgrades on vastly outdated reactors are
destroying our environment in ways no number of children or their
consumption of resources could ever hope to accomplish.
It gives us mega-markets that we must travel to in order to fill our
cupboards at home, while regulating out of business local industry
and even home gardens and industry that could supply us the same
products right on our own block - within walking distance.
In a way this is true, because we fuel these corporations, their proxy governments, their organizations and institutions on a daily basis with our patronage of their goods and services and our daily capitulation to their rules and regulations.
However, the Church of
Malthus has excelled at creating a humanity-hating congregation that
scoffs at the family - the foundation of human civilization since
time immemorial - scorns technological and industrial development in
the third-world, and wallows in the nihilistic culture growing
around this new-aged religion.

Innovation and technology has allowed us to create the current society we now live in.
Technology has reached a point where it allows individuals and communities to do ever more on their own without the need of bloated central governments and world spanning corporate empires.
If left unchecked, governments and
corporations will begin to shrink in size and capacity, playing an
ever minimizing role in our daily lives.
This trend toward technologically facilitated localism translates into an unsavory world order for the ruling global corporate-financier oligarchs, a world order they are fighting ceaselessly to prevent from coming into being.
They fight this battle by monopolizing ideas, information, energy, technology, and the monetary system, in tandem with the systematic sabotaging of our education system, constant intellectual pollution via mainstream media, and the devastating physical and mental effects of the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Much of this is justified through a
Malthusian-themed strategy of tension involving narratives of
overpopulation and resource scarcity, peddled by the emerging Church
...is only one step in a larger plan.
As the globalists fight on to destroy the nation-state worldwide, they fight domestically to destroy self-sufficiency and independence.
foreign nations become terrorist extremists for resisting the
oligarchs globally, we are becoming domestic and economic terrorists
for resisting them on the home front.
While Earth contains a "finite" amount of resources, they are resources that with the right technological mastery, can be reused indefinitely.
Man is already capable of leaving Earth, and has already landed human boots on the Earth's moon, and robotic probes on Mars, Venus, Titan, and even the asteroid Eros - theoretically expanding our reach and our available resources exponentially beyond what is necessary to reach populations of 10's of billions.
already built modest orbital habitats capable of sustaining small
rotating crews for years.
For all that's required to implement the radical, nightmarish scenarios proposed by the Church of Malthus to deal with our current "limits of population," the same amount of mobilization and resources could be aimed at technological progress toward achieving greater efficiency on Earth while evolving humanity into a "multiplanetary" species.
If we can land on asteroids like Eros, we can likewise mine them, or convert them into orbital habitats envisioned by American physicist Gerard K. O'Neill - known as "O'Neill Cylinders."
In fact, an impressive array of solutions
lie in wait to solve humanity's problems - waiting for a population
educated and brave enough to accommodate them.
The cultists of the Church of Malthus celebrate the futility of stunted intellect and defeatism daily in their calls to crawl back into the jungles, cull vast swaths of humanity, and dismantle industrialized civilization, even as they tap on their Chinese-made Macs and poke at their iPhones in their calls to do so.
Their cowardice and limited vision is the true barrier impeding human progress, a barrier we as individuals can pass through and move beyond if only we realize several necessary keys.
As abhorrent as each and every feature of the current system may seem, it has in many ways given us this window of opportunity to seize a truly optimistic future for ourselves.
It is the shameless,
reckless consumerism that has lowered prices and barriers of entry
to various industries through competition, technological progress,
and supply and demand - however manipulated and distorted they may
be. Innovative companies like Elon Musk's
SpaceX are gaining
prominence by serving such a system, but also introducing
revolutionary visions for the future that transcend the current
And indeed, this is the next and only logical
course for humanity to take as our population continues to grow. And
while Musk is optimistic about the future of humanity, it can be
imagined that this optimism is in the context of likeminded people
prevailing against the likes of the Church of Malthus.

Dr. Gershenfeld in his own words articulates the problem of finding support amongst institutions and governments, stating that individuals are very enthusiastic about this revolution,
This indeed not only encapsulates Dr. Gershenfeld's dilemma, but describes to a "t" the mentality of oligarchs and the fears they harbor about truly empowering the people, a fear reflected in the "organizational boundaries" of their corporations and governmental institutions.
This is a feature of oligarchy described as early as 300 B.C. in ancient Greece in "The Athenian Constitution."
In it, a
character referred to as "the Old Oligarch" describes his contempt
for the social mobility the technology of the Athenian navy affords
the lower echelons of Athenian society.
Dr. Gershenfeld concludes by
conceding he thought such a possibility was 20 years off, but "it's
where we are today," noting the success his Fab Labs are already
having around the world.
The technical possibility for this to
change the world is already a reality, but Dr. Gershenfeld himself
concedes that the biggest obstacle is overcoming social engineering
- in other words - creating a paradigm shift in the minds of the
population to meet the technical paradigm shift that has already
Simply boycotting the globalists' corporations and replacing them with local solutions is something everyone can afford to do starting today.
And by simply
looking into Dr. Neil Gershenfeld's "Fab Lab," raising awareness of
the personal fabrication revolution, and even in the smallest way
participating can help overcome the obstacle of social-engineering
and spur a profound paradigm shift.
A Call to Action
There are fortunes and fame to be made from both, but only one leads to a future we will all benefit from.
Becoming directly involved in implementing true
progress would be best of all. However, exposing, boycotting, and
replacing those peddling the religion of Malthus, like the
500 corporations sponsoring US policy think-tanks, while supporting
and raising awareness of those enterprises promoting real progress
is an option we can all choose and begin exercising today.
...that have damaged America
and the world in so many ways still employ well-intentioned and
incredibly talented people, there is always the chance that a
growing popular movement, exposing and boycotting such corporations
may spur more enlightened employees and executives to reform their
agenda and allegiances.
There is also immense talent involved
in the biotechnology industry
- which, while currently committed to domineering humanity - can
just as easily be used for the good of humanity.
progress the agenda, evolving humanity together toward goals of a multiplanetary civilization, the
leveraging of technology and
innovation to solve the problems politicians have kicked back and
forth for generations with ineffectual policy, and support dynamic
minds like Musk and Diamandis in their goals of advancing humanity
in the face of challenge and adversity, instead of cowering in fear
with the Malthusians.
The solutions to our problems are obvious, however challenging they will be to implement.
Let us stop following feckless cowards
intent on sabotaging our collective destiny, and pursue these awe
inspiring goals for both the glory and challenges that await us - as
we have always done.
