This is a good hot take.
Inflation makes life harder for all the bad people who live in rural areas, small towns and exurbs who drive more than urbanites. It makes meat more expensive and less affordable for the working class and middle class. So, millions of people who live paycheck to paycheck are forced to cut back in that area, which helps to fight climate change. Better yet, they can be nudged in the right direction by market forces without the hand of elites in creating the situation being obvious.
The higher price of education discourages working class and middle class people from having children who respond to inflation by controlling their fertility which reduces the carbon footprint of their families. The higher price of rent along with strict environmental laws is a means to make housing less affordable and to price working class and middle class people out of expensive coastal metros and entire states like California. Elites generally want to have the nicest areas to themselves.
If all that fails, there is always the poisons of feminism, the public cult of homosexuality and “trans,” which discourage people from starting traditional families and having children. Corporations like DoorDash, for example, might be unwilling to reimburse their employees for the price of gas doubling or tripling under Joe Biden due to his foreign policy with Ukraine, but they are willing to pay their employees to travel to Blue States to secure abortions. Abortion is a public good. It is synonymous with freedom.
Abortion isn’t something that is tragic or regrettable anymore. It isn’t just tolerated. It is loudly celebrated and encouraged like homosexuality and “trans.” It is necessary to fight climate change.
Note: Is all of this a globalist conspiracy?
Probably not, but there is a conscious effort by “progressives” to make basic goods more expensive (food, gas, rent, etc.) and to discourage people from having children.
