I read in the newspaper today an article about - guess what - the environment. It seems the only newsworthy items recently have to do with celebrities and global warming. I'm sick of it. Anyway, this particular article stated that it's an eco-crime for a couple to have more than two kids, because having a third child or more increases carbon emissions by some order of magnitude.
Nevermind that the Canadian population is already only sustaining its numbers because of immigrants. Nevermind that the North American culture will collapse once there's not enough people around to maintain it. Nevermind that if this is the mentality, abortion and abandoned babies will increase. We MUST reduce carbon emissions, at ALL costs.
Maybe they think if North Americans and Europeans have fewer babies, and the races involved diminish - third world countries sure won't slow their growth rates at all, but simply immigrate to North America and Europe so carbon emissions won't change - then the all around quality of human life will get better. But I doubt it. This, I think, simply has to do with the environment trumping humanity again. So much for God's commission to Adam to "Rule the earth".
Hey. Why don't we just phase out the human race like those nut jobs I mentioned before?
I can't think about this anymore, because it makes me so angry. I feel like running off, getting married and having 17 kids just to spite these environmentalists. Well, ok. Maybe that'd be a little painful. I'll have to re-think that, but MOVING ON NOW, my quote shall quite pointedly and purposefully have nothing whatsoever to do with this issue:
“We are no longer the knights who say ni! We are now the knights who say ekki-ekki-ekki-pitang-zoom-boing!” from Monty Python
