NY Times: Babies Are Pollution

The left is becoming alarmingly candid about its antihuman agenda. From the New York Times, which gives moonbats their marching orders:

Having children is the surest way to send your carbon footprint soaring, according to a new study from statisticians at Oregon State University.

The study found that having a child has an impact that far outweighs that of other energy-saving behaviors.

Take, for example, a hypothetical American woman who switches to a more fuel-efficient car, drives less, recycles, installs more efficient light bulbs, and replaces her refrigerator and windows with energy-saving models. If she had two children, the researchers found, her carbon legacy would eventually rise to nearly 40 times what she had saved by those actions.

“Clearly, the potential savings from reduced reproduction are huge compared to the savings that can be achieved by changes in lifestyle,” the report states.

Naturally, if a baby is bad, an American baby is worse:

The impact of children varies dramatically depending on geography: An American woman who has a baby will generate nearly seven times the carbon footprint of that of a Chinese woman who has a child, the study found.

It’s tempting to say: By all means, be good liberals and stop reproducing. Except that with liberalism, everything is based on coercion. They want you to stop reproducing. Now consider that the government has been moving aggressively to seize control of healthcare, and that Obama’s Science Czar has advocated putting a sterilizing agent in our drinking water.
