Some of the most earnest global warming alarmists look to China as the model for radically controlling human population in order to SAVE THE PLANET! But that is to long for tyranny. Example: China is forcing thousands of people to be involuntarily sterilized for violating the “one child” policy. From the story:
Doctors in southern China are working around the clock to fulfil a government goal to sterilise by force if necessary almost 10,000 men and women who have violated birth control policies. Family planning authorities are so determined to stop couples from producing more children than the regulations allow that they are detaining the relatives of those who resist. About 1,300 people are being held in cramped conditions in towns across Puning county, in Guangdong Province, as officials try to put pressure on couples who have illegal children to come forward for sterilisation.
Radical environmentalism increasingly seems sympathetic to tyrannical “solutions.” China is the last country that we should seek to emulate.
