Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity to hand out so-called “endangered species condoms” to college health centers, nightclub owners, environmental activists across the US, depicting, among other things, polar bears to highlight “the connection between unsustainable human population growth and the ongoing extinction crisis for plants and animals around the world.”

The Center for Biological Diversity, an Arizona based environmental group, is planning to distribute no less than 50,000 condoms across the U.S at countless New Year’s Eve events.

The Phoenix Business Journal reports that the condoms will be distributed “in small boxes that highlight different endangered animals such as polar bears.”Polar_Bear

CBD’s Campaign director Jerry Karnas told a reporter: “There are more than 3 billion people on the planet under the age of 25. The choices this generation makes will determine whether our planet and its wildlife and natural resource base are burdened with 8 billion or 15 billion people”

On the Center’s website, the idea behind the campaign is being elaborated upon:

“The condoms are part of the Center’s 7 Billion and Counting campaign focusing on the effects of rapid human population growth on rare plants and animals.”

Karnas, the group’s population campaign director, stated:

“Our Endangered Species Condoms are a great way to get a conversation started about how the growing human population is affecting the wild world around us, especially animals already teetering on the edge of extinction.”

The group’s website boasts that “it is the only environmental group with a full-time campaign highlighting the connection between unsustainable human population growth and the ongoing extinction crisis for plants and animals around the world.” PantherThe website goes on to say that this latest initiative is part of a “full-time population campaign launched in 2009”:

“The Center has given out 450,000 free Endangered Species Condoms, featuring polar bears, panthers and other species threatened by population growth, loss of habitat and consumption of natural resources. This year, the Center is providing condoms to college health centers, nightclub owners, environmental activists, women’s reproductive-health groups and other activists around the United States.”Leatherback

In a 2010 article on the corporate funders of environmentalist organizations across the United States, Michael Barker notes that the Center for Biological Diversity has been on the receiving end of cash-flows from all the major elites in the Anglo-American world. Quoting from a study examining which organizations are supported by which elites, Barker writes:

“One of the primary groups examined in Bevington’s study was the Center for Biological Diversity (formed in 1989), [22] and which in 2008 received support from elite philanthropic bodies that included the Foundation for Deep Ecology, the Environment Now Foundation, Tides Foundation, ExxonMobil Foundation, The New York Times Company Foundation, and even the “big green” environmental outfit, The Wilderness Society. Corporate funders of the “grassroots” Center for Biological Diversity included the likes of Goldman Sachs, the Bank of America, and Microsoft.”

Interesting to note here that the Center received all these major fundings in 2008, upon which it launched a major population control campaign the year after. This suggests that the same old foundations headed by the same old elites are continuing to push their vision of a depopulated world.

  1. It saddens me to have to agree with our planet would benefit immensely from a rapid reduction in its human population. For some reason the figure of one percent immediately comes to mind.

  2. It’s so disgusting for them to permanently suggest our children are vermin as far as the planet is concerned. I can’t think of a worse insult ever brought to humanity by so called do-gooders, an insult to each individual. Doesn’t this type of campaign class as hate speech? I know liberals are very fond of this expression when it comes to sexual minorities but turn a blind eye when environmentalists attack the value of human life. When I was growing up child bearing used to be revered; life used to be revered. Human life, that is. Now there are groups suggesting expecting mothers are to be seen as immoral and a threat to the world.

    To some of these groups it would probably make sense for self defence against an edangered species (albeit deadly) to be illegal. They seem to have no respect for people at all.

    I have some news for them – everything they are and everything they have is due to human contribution. Their dwelling, their society, their education, their sustenance, the comfort they enjoy… Instead of being grateful for humanity’s legacy, which they benefit from, they call people useless eaters, redundant consumers. Why don’t they move to a forest and spend all day cuddling a grizzly? 🙂
