Optimum Population Trust's preferred solution.
Courtesy of Radio 4s Today program this morning and this surprisingly honest report on the BBC website we are told that we can now reduce our carbon footprint most effectively by funding contraceptive programmes in the developing world.
The holes in the faulty logic behind this press release, disguised as news, are legion, and I don't feel the need to out them here.
The Trust do have one point though, and it nicely amplifies the negativity and futility of the reductive actions advocated by the green lobby; if we all have no children, within a couple of generations man made CO2 should disappear completely - pity nobody will be about to enjoy that glorious non event.
I don't trust any pseudo scientific charity who specialise in picking arbitrary numbers out of thin air (which does naturally contain carbon dioxide), and then campaigning for them; 5 a day, 14 alcohol units, 60 million, 6g - all bite sized politiciking with little foundation in science.
Life stealers the lot of them; for the sake of all of our futures I'd advocate sterilisation for anybody who buys into this kind of nonsense.
Edit: Is this a move towards implementing an unprotected sex tax next? Next thing you know they will be taxing the air we breathe - oh fuck CO2 is 0.03% of air. Well water then - doh! what's that meter in the cupboard for?
Death and taxes - Fuckity fuck...
