Environmentalist Groups Says Children Are Bad For The Planet

God I love it when they release statements even more stupid than the statement before. The group is Optimum Population Trust, and they have a problem with families having children.


John Guillebaud, co-chairman of OPT and emeritus professor of family planning at University College London, said: "The effect on the planet of having one child less is an order of magnitude greater than all these other things we might do, such as switching off lights.

"The greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child."

Just have one less child everyone, and everything will be ok. The didn't address the sun heating up in their statement so I have no idea how they will fix that little problem.

They went on to say that couples shouldn't have more than two kids. Isn't that about average anyway? What about the couples who only have one kid? Can they give their extra kid to another couple who would like three kids? It's the same amount of total children. We can make it like a carbon-credit for children. If you want to produce more pollutants (ie children) you can purchase a "baby-credit" to have another child. You would get this from a couple who has a credit, or two, left over from their children making. If they aren't going to use it they can then sell it to another couple to have an additional child. It's capitalistic and environmentally friendly!

Also, do you get a refund on your "baby-credits" if you have a miscarriage, or if your toddler should pass away? What would be the time period be before you can no longer redeem the credit, and try to have another child?

Clearly this group is in love with China's environmental program. China, the other day, revealed that their child limits (1 per family) had reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Apparently forced abortions can work.

This group needs to see the movie Children of Men to get an idea of what a world looks like without babies.
