‘11th hour’: CNN on board with Ocasio-Cortez’s push to have fewer children to save the planet

It seems CNN is going all in when it comes to the radical Green New Deal being pushed by democratic socialist Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and hard-left progressives.

With Ocasio-Cortez boldly stating that we could all die in 12 years if the extremist climate plan is not adopted, CNN featured controversial Stanford biologist Paul Ehrlich, who echoed that sentiment as the network warned we’re in the “11th hour” of our demise.

The doom and gloom message being peddled?

Americans need to stop having babies or up to a million species could go extinct — the claim is based on a new U.N. report, written by 145 researchers from 50 countries in the last three years.


“For a species that named itself homo sapiens, the wise man, we’re being incredibly stupid,” Ehlrich said. “The other organisms on the planet are our life support systems. You don’t have to worry about them if you don’t care about eating, if you don’t care about breathing, if you don’t care about having fresh water and so on. Then you can just forget about it and die.”

CNN’s Nick Watt spelled out what needs to be done, according to the U.N. report.

“As for our rapidly dwindling biodiversity, these experts claim it’s the 11th hour. We must act now, consuming less, polluting less, having fewer children,” Watt said.

This being eerily similar to what was heard from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez in February, as the socialist lawmaker openly talked about struggling with the morality of whether it’s okay to have children or not because of environmental concerns.

Ehrlich is the author of “The Population Bomb,” a book written in 1968 with his wife, Anne Ehrlich.

“The battle to feed all of humanity is over,” the couple said in the book, promising that in the 1970s “hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death.”

Saying “nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate,” the pair was preaching the same message back then, that was being pushed Monday night on CNN, that unless humanity cut down its numbers we would face “mass starvation” on “a dying planet,” according to Smithsonian Magazine.

Considering that it was CNN, it’s all President Donald Trump’s fault.

“Donald Trump, of course, has vowed to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate change agreement and he recently tweeted this: ‘The whole climate crisis is not only fake news, it’s fake science. There is no climate crisis,’” Watt said. “So will the president listen to a climate skeptic on ‘Fox & Friends’ or will he listen to the 145 global experts who just put this report together? Well, John and Alisyn, we’ll just have to wait and see.”

“I think we know the answer,” anchors Alisyn Camerota and John Berman responded, almost in unison.
