Letter to the Editor: ‘The absolute worst, most non-green, planet-unfriendly, end-life-as-we-know-it thing you can do is have a child.’

By Editor over-population Comments Off on Letter to the Editor: ‘The absolute worst, most non-green, planet-unfriendly, end-life-as-we-know-it thing you can do is have a child.’

From The Oregonian:

In a recent How We Live section, many Oregonian employees cleansed their souls by confessing to some little environmental “sins.” Then they all felt better. I’ve got news for you.

The absolute worst, most non-green, planet-unfriendly, end-life-as-we-know-it thing you can do is have a child. The Earth is grossly overrun with humans, has been for decades and it’s only getting worse. Unless we get serious in a hurry about real population control — and that means reduction, not just treading water — you can eat all the tofu and drive all the smart cars you want: It won’t do any good.

Welcome to the dark side of fighting the imagined man-made global warming.

In this presentation, Dr. Joseph Bookstein, only calls for “humane population policies”, but population control is a very slippery slope, especially if the ones implementing the policy are determined to reach the stated goal when the humane methods don’t work.

From the YouTube notes:

Dr. Joseph Bookstein: Global Warming: The Population Connection

Presented at the Democratic Club of Claremont
April 27, 2009

Professor Bookstein addressed how human population growth is the key issue behind global warming and potentially catastrophic climate change.

He urges his audience to insist that elected leaders, environmentalists and other publi figures take up the issue of population reduction as the only viable means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with an significant long-term impact.

World going to the dogs: Environmentalists say having more than 2 kids will destroy planet. Meantime, an Oregon mayor moves to drop a 2 dog limit

By Editor dogs, environmentalists, over-population Comments Off on World going to the dogs: Environmentalists say having more than 2 kids will destroy planet. Meantime, an Oregon mayor moves to drop a 2 dog limit

Fox News reported yesterday:

Couples who have more than two children are being “irresponsible” by creating an unbearable burden on the environment, the British government’s green adviser warned.

Jonathon Porritt, who chairs the government’s Sustainable Development Commission, says curbing population growth through contraception and abortion must be at the heart of policies to fight global warming.

Meantime, The Albany Democrat-Herald also reported yesterday:

Albany Mayor Sharon Konopa will ask the city council to repeal a restriction on the number of dogs people can have in their homes.

Konopa said she has heard so many reasons to do away with the limit that she has started plans to do just that.

For the past 25 years, the city code has limited households to two adult dogs.
