WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (LSN) – Vice President Al Gore spoke Monday at a White House global-warming conference. After submitting “evidence’’ of the much contested global warming theory, Gore warned that overpopulation was one of the main contributing factors to the environmental threat.

The Washington Times reported Gore as saying, “Third World nations are producing too many children too fast… it is time to ignore the controversy over family planning and cut out-of-control population growth…’‘. When asked how to go about this he suggested expanding birth control and abortion programs in developing countries.
