GREEN RANT: Having a Baby is NOT Bad for the Earth
Posted By Beth Shea On August 7, 2009 @ 1:30 pm In eco kids,Inhabitots | 9 Comments
Procreating is a basic human instinct and right, but some extreme environmentalists are pioneering efforts such as ‘voluntary human extinction ‘ 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  thinks it’s high time we put an end to this nonsensical debate, and poses the question, “Without children, what future are we protecting?”  Where do you stand on the ‘babies are inherently un-eco-friendly’ debate? Read Desmond’s Green Rant at Inhabitots  and leave us a comment with your thoughts.
