Anthropogenic climate change, although a myth, bestows a cornucopia of justification to enact coercive behavior control schemes.
From Autralia comes a plan that makes explicit the implicitly implied notion that planet earth would be a far better place if only those troublesome homo sapiens were eradicated or, as a second best solution, drastically reduced in number. A good place to start, according to an academic, a professor of obstetrics no less, is to start taxing procreation.
Every newborn baby in Australia represents a potent source of greenhouse gas emissions for an average of 80 years, not simply by breathing, but by the profligate consumption of resources typical of our society. Far from showering financial booty on new mothers and thereby rewarding greenhouse-unfriendly behavior, a ‘Baby Levy’ in the form of a carbon tax should apply, in line with the ‘polluter pays’ principle."
Note the self-hatred not only of his species but also his country with the usage of "profligate." To the church of misanthropy, which encompasses extreme environmentalism and radical animal rights activism also including all the "anti" cults such as anti-smoking, human beings are evil, dirty and highly expendable. The anti-kid Australian echoes on a policy level the preening self-righteousness on display in a report about some tiresome women who sterilized themselves so they wouldn’t pollute the globe with their offspring. Hatred of human beings is at the core of every manipulator who misuses science to attain the social and political goals they could never reach if they leveled with the people whom they are now busy conning.
