There is one great thing about liberal advocacy, whatever the cause that is gathering the media’s attention, those with off the wall ideas tend to leech onto it.
A London professor of family planning says that having children is now a danger to the environment. You got that right at home folks, children are the root problem to the enviromental ills. Not that England is even close to replacing it’s population anyway, the birthrate is 1.7 in Britain.
First the mantra was “for the children” to get the cause de jour to the media’s attention and through the political process. But now these same children are the problem, so now we have to get rid of the children for the sake of the environment. What next, a green abortion clinic to solve the problem of environmentally incorrect children?
God help us all.
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.”
In his latest comments, the academic says that when couples are planning a family they should be encouraged to think about the environmental consequences. “The decision to have children should be seen as a very big one and one that should take the environment into account,” he added. via NEWS.com.au.
