A Finnish environmentalist guru has gone further than any other global warming alarmist in openly calling for fascism as a necessary step to save the planet from ecological destruction, demanding that climate change deniers be “re-educated” in eco-gulags and that the vast majority of humans be killed with the rest enslaved and controlled by a green police state, with people forcibly sterilized, cars confiscated and travel restricted to members of the elite.
Philosopher Pentti Linkola has built an enthusiastic following of self-described “eco-fascists” receptive to his message that the state should enact draconian measures of “discipline, prohibition, enforcement and oppression” in order to make people comply with environmental dictates.
Linkola’s barbaric and dictatorial philosophy has remained relatively obscure but is now gaining traction as the mask of environmentalism is lifted to unveil its true nature – a justification for 21st century tyranny on a grand scale, characterized by eugenics, sterilization, gulags, police states, and total government control over every aspect of our existence.
Linkola’s doctrine is more extreme, repulsive, and threatening to liberty than anything carried out by history’s worst dictators, Hitler, Stalin and Mao – combined. Indeed, Linkola laments that such monsters didn’t go far enough in wiping out many more millions of people.
Under Linkola’s proposal to save earth from man-made climate change, “only a few million people would work as farmers and fishermen, without modern conveniences such as the automobile.” This system would be enforced by the creation of a “Green Police” who would abandon “the syrup of ethics” that governs human behavior to completely dominate the population.
Linkola calls for forced abortions, while also adding that another world war would be “a happy occasion for the planet” because it would eradicate tens of millions of people. The environmentalist believes that only jackbooted tyranny can help to save mother earth from “the worst ideologies in the world” which he defines as “growth and freedom”.
“Any dictatorship would be better than modern democracy,” he writes. “There cannot be so incompetent dictator, that he would show more stupidity than a majority of the people. Best dictatorship would be one where lots of heads would roll and government would prevent any economical growth.”
Those who refuse to be enslaved by Linkola’s new eco-tyranny would be abducted and sent to the mountains for “re-education” in eco-gulags, according to the environmentalist, who says that the only solution “lies in a centralised government and the tireless control of citizens.”
As part of his eco-fascist hell, Linkola calls for ‘killing defectives’ by means of sterilization, licenses for births, tight regulation of electricity, forcing humans to eat rats, the confiscation of private cars, travel to be restricted to members of the elite only, and businesses to be terminated as the economy is entirely handed over to the control of the state.
The heart of Linkola’s dark philosophy revolves around the need to slaughter masses of humans. “If there were a button I could press, I would sacrifice myself without hesitating if it meant millions of people would die,” he writes.

“Who misses all those who died in the Second World War? Who misses the twenty million executed by Stalin? Who misses Hitler’s six million Jews?” asks Linkola.
It is impossible to accurately explain and quantify the sheer level of depravity exhibited within Linkola’s belief system. If these words were written by a crazed mass murderer then we’d at least be able to dismiss their import, but these horrendous doctrines are embraced by a prominent environmentalist whose popularity is growing as the putrid tentacles of the eco-fascist movement grow into more areas of society and public discourse.
“We will have to…learn from the history of revolutionary movements — the national socialists, the Finnish Stalinists, from the many stages of the Russian revolution, from the methods of the Red Brigades — and forget our narcissistic selves,” writes Linkola, firmly entrenching his environmental activism in the political prism of Nazism and Stalinism.
Indeed, Linkola’s policies make Hitler and Stalin look like fair-minded humanitarians.
Read Linkola’s loving and human overpopulation analogy, which as we have documented, is a contrived problem debunked by the UN’S own population statistics.
“What to do, when a ship carrying a hundred passengers suddenly capsizes and only one lifeboat? When the lifeboat is full, those who hate life will try to load it with more people and sink the lot. Those who love and respect life will take the ship’s axe and sever the extra hands that cling to the sides of the boat.”
In reality, by 2020 population will stabilize and by 2050 the global population will start to decline at an alarming rate, with the replacement rate for humans dropping below 2.1. Linkola’s bloodthirsty desire to see the human surplus brutally culled has more in common with the discredited pseudo-philosophy of Malthus than it does any basis in scientific fact.
As we have documented, although not going quite as far as Linkola, the eco-fascist movement is attracting prominent advocates, including James Lovelock, the creator of the Gaia hypothesis. Lovelock told the Guardian earlier this year that “democracy must be put on hold” to combat global warming and that “a few people with authority” should be allowed to run the planet.
This sentiment was echoed by author and environmentalist Keith Farnish, who in a recent book called for acts of sabotage and environmental terrorism in blowing up dams and demolishing cities in order to return the planet to the agrarian age. Prominent NASA global warming alarmist and Al Gore ally Dr. James Hansen endorsed Farnish’s book.
Linkola concurs with Farnish and Hansen, writing, “Everything we have developed over the last 100 years should be destroyed.”
Another prominent figure in the climate change debate who exemplifies the violent and death-obsessed belief system of the movement is Dr. Eric R. Pianka, an American biologist based at the University of Texas in Austin. During a speech to the Texas Academy of Science in March 2006, Pianka advocated the need to exterminate 90% of the world’s population through the airborne ebola virus. The reaction from scores of top scientists and professors in attendance was not one of shock or revulsion – they stood and applauded Pianka’s call for mass genocide.
The current White House science czar John P. Holdren also advocates the most obscenely dictatorial, eco-fascist, and inhumane practices in the name of environmentalism. In his 1977 Ecoscience textbook, Holdren calls for a “planetary regime” to carry out forced abortions and mandatory sterilization procedures, as well as drugging the water supply, in an effort to cull the human surplus.
Linkola has outstripped even notorious murder mastermind Charles Manson in his hatred for the human race. During prison interviews, Manson routinely spoke of his belief that around 50 million humans should be slaughtered for the good of the planet, whereas Linkola and his fans simply believe that humanity should cease to exist in its entirety. A fan site dedicated to Linkola includes links to his articles which have headlines like “Extinguish Humans, Save the World”.
Like Manson, Linkola has become a respected environmentalist guru for a new cult of believers who feel that governments and global institutions are not being ruthless enough in enforcing overdue measures to save the Earth from ecological destruction.
“Linkola has built an environmentalist following by calling for an authoritarian, ecological regime that ruthlessly suppresses consumers,” writes the Guardian’s Micah White, adding that Linkola has “opened the way for a wave of fascist environmentalists who reject democratic freedom.”
Another Finnish environmentalist writer, Martin Kreiggeist, hails Linkola’s call for eco-gulags and oppression as “a solution,” calling for people to “take up the axes” in pursuit of killing off the third world. Kreiggeist wants fellow eco-fascists to “act on” Linkola’s call for mass murder in order to solve overpopulation.
Linkola himself openly calls for violence to further the cause of eco-fascism. “A minority can never have any other effective means to influence the course of matters but through the use of violence,” he writes.
While governments around the world continue to harass innocent citizens and define peaceful political action as domestic terrorism, people like Linkola, Pianka and others, along with their growing legion of followers, are left alone despite their open call for violence and genocide.
Given the fact that cult followers of these extremist fringe environmentalists, people like Discovery Channel building gunman James Jay Lee, are now starting to act out on their guru’s doctrines with violence, it’s high time that radical global warming alarmists who are calling for mass murder and fascism be investigated by the relevant authorities as potential terrorists.
However, it’s a forlorn hope when one understands that Linkola’s tyrannical and abhorrent belief system is merely an extension of the eugenicist doctrines being promoted by some of the most powerful people on the planet who, backed by an equally enthusiastic establishment media, are now brazenly dispensing with tip-toe tyranny and are openly calling for mass death and dictatorship under the guise of stopping climate change.
The establishment points fingers all day long at all manner of political groups to smear them as a threat, while monsters like Linkola and Pianka who advocate the most dangerous and obscene ideas imaginable are lauded and afforded respect by their peers and their growing band of lunatic followers, who are all too eager to act out on the barbarian “solutions” that are being encouraged in the name of environmentalism.
