Kamala Harris Calls to ‘Reduce Population’ to Save Climate

Look, you can call it a mistake if you want — I have no doubt the fact-checkers are working overtime to make it clear it was a “gaffe” — but Kamala Harris did say it. I’m honestly not sure if it was a Freudian slip or just a case of saying the quiet part out loud. But during a speech on climate change on Friday, the nation’s historically unpopular vice president said we need to “reduce population.”

“When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce population, more of our children can breath clean air and drink clean water,” Harris said during her speech in Maryland.

Obviously, the remark didn’t go unnoticed, and it prompted many to wonder if Harris truly meant it, and what exactly she meant by it.

“Are you the population she wants to reduce?” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) tweeted.

“VP @KamalaHarris says the quiet part out loud regarding her and other climate alarmists very anti human ideology and their desire to ‘reduce population,’” tweeted Sen. Eric Schmitt of Missouri.

It would be easier to write it off as a gaffe, if the left wasn’t already all-in on population reduction. As the Washington Times noted, “Calls for ‘zero population growth’ surged on the left after the publication of the 1968 book ‘The Population Bomb’ by environmentalist Paul Ehrlich.” And, of course, their affinity for completely unrestricted abortion demonstrates that they essentially endorse killing undesirables and unwanted children. Hence, what would otherwise be an easy gaffe to dismiss as a misstatement is instead a legitimate problem for the White House, and it went into damage control mode. Since the clip had already gone viral, the White House transcript doesn’t even try to pretend Harris didn’t say it — but it corrects the line, insisting that Harris meant “reduce pollution.”

When we invest in clean energy and electric vehicles and reduce population [pollution], more of our children can breathe clean air and drink clean water.

Is that what she meant to say? I suppose it’s possible, but I’m not convinced there wasn’t a hint of truth behind what she did say.


  1. Why don’t you and people like you go away. That would clean our air out. Everything out of your mouth pollutes our air. What gives you the right to play GOD? You and elites are in for a fight. When you elites are gone our air will be clean and so will our water and way of life.

  2. We can start reducing the population with her. What a waste of air, she is. Braindead clown with no morals. I cannot wait until she is knocked out of office.

  3. Looks like my comment wasn’t approved. It’s ok for kamala to say it’s ok to let us die but not ok for people to say they should go away.

  4. What those on the left don’t realize is when the “elites” say they want to reduce the population, that means EVERYONE not in their club! They plan on murdering 8 billion people!

  5. Abortion, the trans mutilation of children’s reproductive anatomy, some vaccines, euthenasia, O.D. via illegal drug use, and war all contribute to depopulation. They aren’t enough for her? What other suggestions does she want to contemplate?

  6. Bill Gates comment in his speech a few years ago said the same thing. He wants to use vaccines to “depopulate” the world. At the rate people are suddenly dropping dead from heart attacks, his vaccines are doing exactly what he wanted them to do.
