    That is how Pres Obama switched from anti same sex marriage to pro two years ago.

      "The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child."  

      How did that work out for China?

      •  I find China's forced one child policy abhorrent. (0+ / 0-)

        I think this should entirely be a personal choice without incentives or penalties by government for any particular number of children.  At the same time, there should be secure retirement for adults, so people are not dependent upon having children for economic security in old age.

        People can be informed about the issue, just as they are on most other environmental issues.

        It will be very hard to have a reasonable environment a century from now without human population going to zero.

            result of use by however many humans are on the planet, it is and always has been the result of abuse (destruction, poisoning and waste) by the vandals. We can also identify them as the ex-men because they:

            explore
            export
            exhaust
            extract
            exploit
            execute
            exterminate
            explode
            exact

            The ex-men are a throw-back population. Instead of caring and sharing and taking turns in a reciprocating society, they behave like predators, counting on the scavengers to clean up after them. The predatory mode is OK, even when practiced by humans, except when it is combined with industrial innovation which generates more and more deadly waste than the environment is prepared to handle. One man's waste is another man's treasure, as long as its biological. Chemical wastes are for the most part deadly all around unless they are disaggregated into their constituent parts.
            What man hath put together, he needs must take apart.
