  • Want to fight climate change? Have fewer children

    Each child on Earth creates 58.6 tons of CO2-equivalent per year. If you really want to fight climate change in a meaningful way, then population growth needs to be curbed, and in a big way. Think of how much waste is generated by each child. They grow up and have even more children that create even more CO2 emissions, as well as other pollutants, and cause stresses on our limited resources.

    So how many here will assume responsibility for our environment and voluntarily restrict their breeding?

          I stopped at one, so, check.

            None here either.
            But CF is 100% correct. We do have to consider ever increasing life spans as well. Even if people started having one kid one per person, the copulation will grow because of it. At least for awhile.

              Japan and a few other countries have a much older general population. This could put a strain on their healthcare system. So, the Japanese need to spread a little love more frequently!

                      The whole climate change scare is about control. Once the public can be convinced that CO2 is a harmful polutant that must be monitored and controlled via the force of the government gun, they can control every single aspect of your life. The reason is simple: Everything human beings do - EVERYTHING - has a CO2 impact. Even gardening and planting trees, in that it reduces it.

                      And when such lunacy becomes weaponized, individual freedom of any significance beyond whether or not to blink your eyes becomes a subject covered only in history books.

                      I offer this just in case anyone is wondering why I find this hoax so important and don't just laugh it off as I do the others.

                      Pssst. CO2 is toxic to animals. No convincing necessary. In laymans terms it's call science

                          This is the kind of nonsense I'm talking about. No, it is no more toxic than water, which, in high enough doses can kill you.
