HAVING large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags, says a report to be published today by a green think tank. The paper by the Optimum Population Trust will say that if couples had two children instead of three they could cut their family’s carbon dioxide output by the equivalent of 620 return flights a year between London and New York.
Utter nonsense. Here is another case of the environmentalists putting more value on the supposed dire state of the environment then on human life. If this were actually true, what they should be doing is drinking Jones Kool-aid at the next global warming party to make room for other people. Maybe we should instate a Logan’s Run law, where if you believe this crap, you can go to the sleepshop when reaching the age of 30.
Just so you know, I don’t litter, and I drive two Hyundais. They have good gas mileage, so it is purely economics for me to be driving these. My next car will probably be an Exterra though, because I have a growing family, with the current laws, it is impossible to fit more than two car seats in my vehicles. A child in NJ is required to be in a car seat until the age of 8. I do believe that it is my duty to take care of this earth as God commanded. I don’t believe that means I have to fall for the Global Warming theory. Even scientists argue with each other over whether or not global warming exists.
