Gaia ( /ˈɡeɪ.ə/ or /ˈɡaɪ.ə/; from Ancient Greek Γαῖα, a poetical form of Γῆ, “land” or “earth”; also Gaea, or Ge) was the goddess or personification of Earth in ancient Greek religion, one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia was the great mother of all: the heavenly gods, the Titans and the Giants were born from her union with Uranus (the sky), while the sea-gods were born from her union with Pontus (the sea). ~Wikipedia

Genocidal Green Quotes
By Alan Caruba
As Earth Day 2012 occurs on Sunday, April 22, I offer a selection of quotes from leading figures in the environmental movement that are worth reading so that you can draw your own conclusions.
In 1970, the first Earth Day generated the following quotes:
“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” – George Wald, Harvard Biologist
“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” – Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist
“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” – New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day
“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” – Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist
“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation.” – Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day in 1970.
Truth meant (and means) little to environmentalists.

From Cal Thomas in his op-ed, U.S. policy shouldn’t promote abortion (from back when Clinton was president):
Population controllers have succeeded in persuading many people that there are too many humans on the planet, especially in poor countries, and that the answer to poverty is a reduction in the birth rate. In fact, poverty is not caused by too many people, but by misguided political systems and by a shortage of capital.
…The notion of a worldwide “population crisis” is a myth. People are not a burden. They are a natural resource. If the poor are such a problem, why not just kill them all now and be done with it? Poor people aren’t the problem. Economical and political systems that do not let them escape from poverty are.
