GREEN RANT: Having a Baby is NOT Bad for the Earth

green rant, are babies bad for the environment, babies and the environment, is procreation eco-friendly, voluntary extinction

Procreating is a basic human instinct and right, but some extreme environmentalists are pioneering efforts such as ‘voluntary human extinction [1]‘ on a global level and undergoing sterilization procedures on an individual level, for the sake of protecting Mother Earth from overpopulation and human destruction. Resident Inhabitots writer Desmond Williams [2] thinks it’s high time we put an end to this nonsensical debate, and poses the question, “Without children, what future are we protecting?” [2] Where do you stand on the ‘babies are inherently un-eco-friendly’ debate? Read Desmond’s Green Rant at Inhabitots [2] and leave us a comment with your thoughts.
