    "Having one fewer child would reduce a family's climate burden 20 times more than driving a fuel-efficient car or using energy-saving appliances, according to this statistical analysis. That doesn't seem to be stopping anyone in developed countries like the U.S. New research published in Nature this week shows that birth rates in the most developed countries are rising again."

    Are babies bad for the environment.

    If you want your environment to smell vaguely like baby shit and talcum powder, and you want that environment to be occassionally punctuated with nerve shattering crying sometimes that goes on for hours, they're ideal for the environment.

    Sorry, Fat, I'm not much interested in getting into a mindless insult-fest.

    Perhaps Sho will accomodate you.

    He apparently like that sort of mindless trading of insults.

    The left is now advocating that less children will lessen the none existent man made global warming. I suggest they show us the way by having every liberal dumb ass fixed so they can save the environment. Won't be long before they are pushing for abortions to save the environment too. Maybe a law outlawing more then one child per woman?

    "It's no secret that there are more and more of us every day. From less than a billion 200 years ago to more than 6.6 billion people on the planet today. And the United Nations expects more than 9 billion by mid-century.

    This kind of exponential population growth has consequences for the planet, from stretched natural resources, such as fresh water supplies, to burgeoning levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
    "

    The global warming deniers still need to explain how we will continue to be able to feed everyone going at this rate.

    Have less kids. Do it for the kids. ;)

    White Americans are already having less kids.

    In fact as early as the late 60's America (White and minorities included) had reached zero population growth except for the immigrantion which continued to increase our population.

    Perhaps you're preaching to the wrong people?
