NYT editorial argues that extinction of the human race would be good for planet Earth

https://www.depopulation.news/2019-01-07-nyt-editorial-argues-extinction-of-humans-good-for-planet-earth.html

01/07/2019 / By Vicki Batts

The mainstream media is now trying to “normalize” the depopulation agenda. In a recent NYT editorial, Would Human Extinction Be a Tragedy?, Clemson University professor Todd May argues that the end of humanity wouldn’t be so bad after all. The left-wing has been using the global warming narrative to conjure up fear about imminent human extinction for years now, but declaring that the end of humanity would be good for the planet is taking the global depopulation agenda to a whole new level.

It would seem that the left-wing media is now launching the next phase of this grand extinction scheme. By publishing the opinion of Mr. Todd May, The New York Times is at the very least showing that this point of view is worthy of such a lofty platform, if not a full-blown endorsement. As Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, recently reported, there are many, many signs that the “extermination agenda” has already begun — and with headlines like Mays’ NYT piece floating around, it’s clear that the media is trying to push depopulation as the new “normal.”

What starts off as a “fringe” idea can very quickly become mainstream thought, if its publicized the right way. And it looks like the globalist Left is moving towards adopting depopulation as the next big thing on the party line.
NYT editorial says human extinction is “good”

In a recent opinion piece for the Times, Mr. Todd Mays states, “Human beings are destroying large parts of the inhabitable earth and causing unimaginable suffering to many of the animals that inhabit it.” He notes that humans are destroying the Earth through at least three different means: Factory farming and animal suffering, climate change, and an increasing human population. None of these things are going away any time soon, Mays contends.

“Humanity, then, is the source of devastation of the lives of conscious animals on a scale that is difficult to comprehend,” the chemistry professor states.

Throughout the article, Mays compares and contrasts the sins of humanity against the greatness our species has also managed to achieve, asking if the things some select humans have accomplished have been worth the price our planet has been forced to pay.

While Mays does not come to an official conclusion on the matter, he does state, “It may well be, then, that the extinction of humanity would make the world better off and yet would be a tragedy.”
Advancing the depopulation agenda

As writer Michael Snyder notes, Mays’ arguments also seem to insinuate that only cultures which have contributed something worthwhile are worth preserving. While other academics have pointed to population control or population reduction, Mays is jumping straight to total extinction.

In a recent article, Mike Adams, founder of Natural News and creator of Brighteon.com, revealed that many of the events happening in our world today are tied to one ultimate cause: Ending humanity. Adams writes:

Inescapably, a core feature of everything happening today is an anti-human agenda to exterminate humankind. Every major trend taking place today is preparing humankind for a mass extermination event, making sure humans cannot fight back, think for themselves or even reproduce.

Adams points to the aggressive calls to disarm citizens, cultural attacks on fertility and masculinity, poisoning of the food supply and other key issues as signs that there is a plan to take down the human race — and it’s already been put into action.

Have We Ever Been Told the Truth About ANYTHING?


It literally has gotten to where, I don’t believe anything, said at any time, by anyone, other than a handful of people. People that also have been lied to during their whole lives.


It is amazing, everything we thought we knew is wrong. The inventions of geniuses has been kept secret; people murdered and their patents stolen just to keep us in the dark. Screw the state of the planet, we want to continue making money on oil, and all energy.

What a crock of shit! And what do we do? Like a bunch of gullible cattle just accept everything, when deep down inside, most of us know it has all been a lie.

(Carbon Tax. Carbon Tax. Carbon Tax)


Carbon tax? Get fucking real! The taxes we pay go to the Federal Reserve. There is nothing Federal about the Federal Reserve, it is just one more great big fucking lie, to make us continue being the good little slaves that we are. I don’t know about you, but between the fucking crooked courts, with their crooked fucking judges finding in favor of the fucking crooks, I have had enough!

ELKINS v. UNITED STATES, 364 U.S. 206 (1960) 364 U.S. 206?? No. 126.
Argued March 28-29, 1960.   Decided June 27, 1960.
In a government of laws,” said Mr. Justice Brandeis, “existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our Government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the Government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.” 277 U.S., at 485 . (Dissenting opinion.).

It is really hard to pinpoint just when the onslaught of lies began, and even escalated. Apparently thousands of years ago. You know, scientists cannot even agree upon the age of the earth. The scientists are some of the biggest liars too.
UFOs don’t exist, there are no aliens, we landed on the moon, global warming (they’re going to have a hard time explaining global warming when it’s the ice age coming, not global warming. Then on top of that, they have everyone going around believing that it is our fault. OUR FAULT???
See: “Climate Scientist Admits To Lying, Leaking Documents” “he confessed that he had lied to obtain internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a group that questions to what extent climate change is caused by humans” .
How can it be our fault, when they were the ones keeping us using fossil fuels. They have known for at least, yes, at least, fifty years, that we could have been using clean FREE Energy! But, can you imagine what it would be like for everyone on earth to have clean, free energy? My God! Everyone would be much more equal to one another, wouldn’t they?



“Inventor of ‘Free Energy’ Electrical Generator: ‘I’ve Been Poisoned Several Times’”. Look what they did to Tesla, and any other genius that wanted to share what they had learned, with us? They have been discredited, killed, and some very recently killed.
Why has Elon Musk repeatedly been plagued with fires at his Tesla shop?

Like Obama going to Africa and telling them that they can’t have A/C and no every household needs a car. Who the fuck is he? Going to Africa, while he was the US President telling the Africans that crock of shit, while knowing that free energy was capable, and in fact, clean and free.

But you know, if we had free, clean energy, we would all be using it, and the lies about needing oil, together with the utility companies forcing bills to keep warm, bills to keep cool, bills to use the computer, we pay for everything we do. Why? Because the lies and secrecy have kept us in the dark ages.
Listen to Dr. Steven Greer sometimes. He is brilliant, and he has been trying to force disclosure for 25-30 years.


Do you know what the excuse for not doing full disclosure now is? It is because people will get so mad, that there will be meltdown. All of these people that have been foreclosed upon, all of these people that pay extremely high power bills, gas bills, all of these people that are being taxed out the ass, all these nuclear power plants that we are paying for, and will never benefit from, unless you find cancer at younger ages beneficial…


What is wrong with the people? How can we go to work every day, knowing we are living a lie, while our children and grandchildren are at school where their young developing minds are being twisted with sick gender bullshit by people running a sick experiment on all of us? And half of the US is so worried that Hillary didn’t get elected and Trump did. SO FUCKING WHAT!!! The Clintons are bigger crooks than most everyone in the US combined!
The same idiots, are so sick, they have had to be given a diagnosis of Trump Derangement Syndrome. So you get the sickos with Trump Derangement Syndrome, together with the Antifa, and the fascists and the communists in this country, and before long, I hate it, but before long, unless the sleeping half awakens soon, we will be just like Venezuela, where they are so hungry, they have eaten all of the animals out of the zoos, they have eaten their pets, and the pets of their neighbors. Last I heard, they were eating all of the grass growing on the ground. And these people want socialism???? Where the fuck did we get these people from.
You know what I saw a day or two ago? I saw where in the Court’s instructions, and the Court’s rules, you are no longer allowed to refer to the gender of a person. People are no longer male, or female, they are whatever the hell they claim they are that day. A dog, a mule, a building, an airplane…
What the fuck people!?! Get over the bullshit!

I could go on all day with the things we have been lied to about. Take my word for it. Everything we’ve ever been told, history, current, whenever, it has all been a lie…

EPA Whistleblower Exposes the Ongoing Geoengineering Omnicide Op-Ed by Peter A. Kirby

Op-Ed by Peter A. Kirby

We have passed another major turning point in our noble anti-geoengineering movement. Chalk up another huge ‘W’ for Dane Wigington at GeoengineeringWatch.org. The man is on a tear.

On the 16th of last month, Dane published an interview with a retired U.S. Air Force Major General named Richard H. Roellig. Major General Roellig expressed that he is aware of and concerned about the current, ongoing large-scale uncontrolled climate geoengineering experiments.

Outdoing even this, on the 21st of last month, Dane posted an interview with a former employee of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named Michael Davis. Mr. Davis is an expert who has firsthand knowledge of the hard scientific evidence proving that we are being sprayed with massively destructive substances that work synergistically with the so-called ‘fluoride’ in our drinking water to make us die and ruin our planet.

Davis expounds upon the abject cowardice and selfishness of the legions of chair-warmers at the EPA who are willing to watch the world burn so that they may receive a big paycheck. People like that are anathema to a healthy and prosperous society. Television controls their minds. The corporate superstate is their mother and father. Complimenting Davis’ revelations, Wigington breaks protocol and names names of people in important positions of power who are fully aware of the geoengineering situation, but do nothing about it. Listen to the tension in their voices and how carefully they choose their words. They are both fully aware of just how crucial this information is.

I don’t want to hear any more complaints about cuts to the EPA’s budget. The EPA does not protect us. They protect the corporate establishment and make sure that the citizen is effectively murdered. The entire agency should be abolished.

I’m so glad I never ever said a bad word about Dane Wigington. I’ve heard lots of them spoken about him to me by fellow anti-geoengineering activists; people I trust and respect. There may still be some validity to what they say, but the proof is in the pudding. My response to criticism of the man has always been to say that the bottom line is that he is doing good work by raising awareness. Before I cancelled my account, I criticized Alex Jones on Twitter for only ever having Dane as a guest to the exclusion of all other anti-geoengineering activists, but that was a criticism of Jones only, not Wigington. And everybody knows Alex Jones is an asshole anyway, so who cares?

I’m kind of jealous to tell you the truth. Don’t worry, though, my upcoming essay “Chemtrails Exposed: The Deep State and the New Manhattan Project” is on track and poised to be the definitive work exposing exactly WHO is currently responsible for this wholesale, industrial strength wrecking of our environment. Brennan’s disclosure at Pratt House was particularly telling. God willing, the article will be made available before the end of the year.

FAMILY CALLS FOR HELP WITH SUICIDAL CHILD, COPS SHOW UP AND KILL HIM

FAMILY CALLS FOR HELP WITH SUICIDAL CHILD, COPS SHOW UP AND KILL HIM
Published: July 15, 2018

https://www.blacklistednews.com/article/67142/family-calls-for-help-with-suicidal-child-cops-show-up-and-kill.html

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) – Chanhassen, MN – A family is devastated after they called the police to help their 16-year-old son and the officers who responded shot and killed him instead, highlighting an ongoing trend in which the officers who promise to “serve and protect” their community are taking the lives of its most vulnerable members.

Archer Amorosi was killed on Friday morning after his parents reached out to the same police officers who said they would help with no questions asked, as the teenager was battling mental health issues, and appeared to be suicidal. His father told KARE 11 News that the family called a crisis hotline and the police on Thursday, and then called the police again on Friday, which resulted in the fatal encounter.

“My ex-wife called them because they said if they came back they would take him in for an evaluation. They said wouldn’t ask questions. Instead, they killed him,” His father said.

It is unclear whether there is video footage of the shooting, as reports claim that the Carver County Sheriff’s Office does not use body cameras—however, the scene may have been recorded by the dash camera on one of the squad cars.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) agency is already attempting to defend the unnamed officers responsible for Amorosi’s death, by claiming that the deputies used a Taser on the teenager before two of them opened fire with their guns.

Amorosi was pronounced dead at the scene, and while reports claim that police were called after he threatened his mother with knives and a baseball bat, a family friend told The Free Thought Project that Amorosi was unarmed, and was killed because he tried to get up off of the ground.

“My daughter spoke directly with a close friend of the mother of Archer, the mom specifically told her that he was unarmed, that they shot him for trying to get back up,” the friend said.

While the public waits for more details to be released, the community is heartbroken and the Associated Press reported that “distraught relatives were openly crying in the driveway of the home” and that “people coming and going from the home said they were friends and classmates of the teen but declined to comment until the family had decided to do so.”

Amorosi was preparing to start his junior year at Minnetonka High School, where he was an active member of the student body and he played football and lacrosse. The school’s principal, Jeff Erickson, released a statement via email sharing his condolences regarding the devastating loss of the young student.

“It has been widely reported in the local media that MHS incoming junior, Archer Amorosi, passed away Friday,” Erickson wrote. “This situation is heartbreaking and I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to Archer’s parents and family, his friends, and the entire Minnetonka High School community. I know this situation is particularly devastating to those of you who knew Archer well.”

As shocking and heartbreaking as this loss is, it is, unfortunately, not uncommon in the United States. Even if the boy had threatened to take his own life at one point, his life was ultimately taken by the officers who were supposed to help him and to talk him down off of the ledge.

Today I lost a Brother 😓 I was just talking to Archer the other day and we was talking bout the good times we had during football. This day came to early 🤦🏾‍♂️😓 Long Live Archer A 7-13-18 🙌🏾 Love you boa watch over us 🙏🏾@archeramorosi pic.twitter.com/MVC9qdno6o

As The Free Thought Project has reported, while police officers receive extensive training on how to accurately fire their weapons, they often receive very little training on how to handle mentally ill individuals, or how to de-escalate situations where a person claims to be suicidal.

In the case of Archer Amorosi, many of the details are still unclear, and it remains to be seen whether the public will be able to see the video footage of the shooting, or whether the officers responsible will be held accountable for their actions.

We were all damaged or were killed by this on purpose Rad dosing of the population by these Psychopaths

TOTAL GAMMA AND BETA RADIATION 2008 HIGHS No 14X
By Bob Nichols on April 22, 2017

Facing a Dying Nation
A big reason Americans know they suffered through such high Rads in 2008 is because the government counted the Beta particles radiation “excursions” from the killer reactors and nuclear weapons.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/04/22/total-gamma-and-beta-radiation-2008-highs-no-14x/

High Gamma Count in 2008: 506,026 CPM in New York City.

High Beta Count in 2008: 4,601,174 CPM in Nashville, Tennessee.

Later the Beta Radiation Count was quietly dropped by the government just when we needed to know. We were all damaged or were killed by this on purpose Rad dosing of the population by these Psychopaths. The Rad is still going on, too.

This was premeditated murder. It is a simple murder charge under State laws. Rein in and execute these morons. This VT article is Evidence.

The Rad will continue to increase because that is what Rad does.The simple reason is some of the Uranium continues to decay to Plutonium. When that happens the Rad Count increases. Once set free, the change cannot be altered or stopped by anyone or anything.

There is nothing we can do to stop it. The Rad will take us all out. Yea, that includes all of us; plus the bugs and the fish driving around in the our air, lakes, rivers and oceans. The Rad also Nails the long lived remnants of the Dinosaurs; y’know … the birds. They don’t have a prayer.

All of us are included; none are left out. That is reality, anything else is just wishful thinking or a purposeful lie.

The possible number of readings in 2008 was 8,784. [24X366 = 8,784 Hourly Readings possible. 2008 was a Leap year.]

Coincidence, Right?
The massive real estate collapse started in 2008, too. Makes one think. Radiation poisoning of the movers and shakers is as good an explanation as any as to why it happened. Rad poisoning makes you stupid.

Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.

KTVU, Aug 12, 2016 (emphasis added): Sea lions are contracting and dying from cancer, at alarming rates in their uro/genital tracts, most often among the females. “We are concerned that it is such a high incidence. It’s 19 or so percent in this particular population of California sea lions which is very unusual for any mammal,” says Dr. Padraig Duignan, Chief Pathologist at the Marine Mammal Center… “So, usually when you see a severe disease outbreak like this, in wildlife, there’s some big underlying problem,” adds Dr. Cara Field, a rehabilitation veterinarian… “Certainly understanding why they get it and what the contributing factors are and ‘do these contributing factors represent a risk to us?’ is critically important for us in understanding what other risks there may be for us as well as other animals,” says Dr. Field.


California Academy of Sciences (bioGraphic), Aug 29, 2016: Scientists Investigate a Mysterious Cancer Plaguing California Sea Lions… The disease starts in the reproductive organs… By the time they die, tumors have sometimes infiltrated their backbones and turned vertebrae to “mush,” [Tenaya Norris, a scientist at The Marine Mammal Center] says. She describes examining one dead animal whose spine she could simply slice through. More than a quarter of the adult California sea lions that die at the Marine Mammal Center suffer from cancer, says director of veterinary science Shawn Johnson. That’s one of the highest cancer rates seen in any wild animal… There’s been a surge of sick animals, especially California sea lions… “Off the California coast, the ecosystem is really under stress,” says Johnson. That stress is hitting California sea lions particularly hard… Over the past three years, Johnson says, 80 to 90 percent of all California sea lion pups have died… And whether or not the disease is becoming more common or simply holding steady, Johnson says he knows one thing for certain: “It’s not declining.” The disease rates researchers are seeing among sea lions are far from normal, and they want to know why. “Wild populations shouldn’t have cancers like this,” Johnson says… Tumors first form in the cervix or penis, then spread, often metastasizing to the lymph nodes and spine… Inside a stricken animal, “there’s just masses of yellow, cancerous tissue,” says Frances Gulland, senior scientist at the Marine Mammal Center… [C]ancer-stricken sea lions have more pollutants in their blubber… “That’s really important for the human health perspective as well,” Gulland says. “These are contaminants the sea lions are acquiring from their prey. And the fish they eat are the same fish that we eat”…

Seattle Times, updated Jan 28, 2016 (emphasis added): How the state is missing chances to find deadly birth defect’s causeat least 40 other mothers have lost babies to [anencephaly, which result in missing large parts of the brain] in Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties since 2010… one of the largest documented clusters of anencephaly in U.S. history… “Something’s going on and someone needs to tell us,” said [mother Sally] Garcia… Dr. Lisa Galbraith was one of the doctors… In Prosser, the obstetrician oversaw care of Garcia’s pregnancy and others affected by the disorder… “I had a total of four or five babies with anencephaly over the course of two years,” recalled Galbraith… the rate of anencephaly was much higher [than US averages]… Washington health officials… have collected no blood samples, performed no genetic tests and conducted no examination of water, soil… and have no plans to do so… In Texas, just three babies with anencephaly sparked enough outrage to overhaul the state’s birth-defects reporting system.

Seattle Times video transcriptCarlen Majnarich, funeral director: “It’s tragic… It just seems like that’s pretty much all I see on the death certificate is the same diagnosis. And nobody seems to know why. We average close to 100 families a year here in Prosser [a few miles from Hanford]. Almost all the infants that we have have died of anencephaly. It’s just what do you say?”… Sally Garcia (mother who lost her baby to anencephaly): “All these on this side [of the cemetery] are all babies… all babies, starting from right there.”

The Legal Examiner, Dec 31, 2015: [T]he strange eruption of anencephaly cases, which occurs in Washington at a rate almost 5 times as high as the national average, has highlighted a number of government policies that may actually conceal these sort of birth defect “clusters,” rather than help investigate them.

KVEW-TV, Mar 4, 2016: As of November 2015 cases of anencephaly have continued to increase with the current rate at 9.5 per 10,000 live births.

Sara Barron, MS, BSN – American Journal of Nursing, Mar 2016: In the spring of 2012 two babies without brains were born within weeks of each other at the rural hospital in Washington State where I was working… I was stunned when the delivering physician said another patient was expecting the same outcome. After speaking with colleagues at neighboring hospitals, I learned that two other babies with anencephaly had recently been born in the area. In over 30 years of nursing, I had seen only two cases of anencephaly prior to these. I called the Washington State Department of Health and reported a birth defect cluster… RISK FACTORS… Radiation exposure. Popular media and blogs have often linked the Washington State NTD cluster to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Benton County, Washington. Although leaks from nuclear power plants have been associated with a higher rate of anencephaly and other NTDs, Washington State Department of Health investigators point out that the three counties with the highest prevalence of NTDs were both upwind and upriver of the Hanford site, making the nuclear plant an unlikely cause of the 2012 cluster.

  • KOIN: “The biggest, most toxic nuclear waste site in the Western hemisphere
  • Time: “The largest nuclear clean-up site in the western hemisphere
