  1. Population control is, unfortunately, part of the extremist green lyfestyle world view. I also catch a whiff of Eugenics- if you don’t minimise your carbon footprint you are bad for the planet and don’t deserve to be born.

    (There are just too many damn people on this planet excreting all of that nasty CO2.)

  2. Ian – it will be pets soon, I expect. What is the carbon footprint of our pets? Then there are all those wild animals, birds and other creatures.

    Of course, extreme environmentalism (like extreme anything really) goes full circle – the outsiders want to be free to express their views and ultimately force their doctrine on the world, creating another authoritarian paradigm, but one more to their liking.
