Save the planet- why?

The cheapest and easiest way to combat climate change, according to a report by the London School of Economics and Political Science, is by sterilisation and abortion. Humans, they say, is the planet’s worst enemy: We are destroying our earth.

Which brings me to a question:

Are we trying to save the planet for our children?

Or are we trying to save the planet from our children?

    That report sounds horrible and seems to miss the point.

    Who are we trying to save? Depends who you are talking about. Some people seem to think people have less value than the environment, but that makes little sense. Most of us value human beings the most, so our children are more important.

  2. Retha says:

    I agree, people have more value.

    But perhaps under the view that man lives for less than a century, the planet for millions of years, the view above may just be seen as sensible – by some. But if someone believe that man is eternal and this planet, which will end, is a place where many eternal souls need to spend some time and learn some lessons, that person can value people more than the earth, while not forgetting about earth either.

    Before i launch into my anti-life rant: Only those who prove themselves worthy and able to bring up the next generation should be allowed to breed. The country is being brought to its knees by the cost of benefits and kids, so why let it get worse.

    What’s so special about creating more FUCKING LIFE anyway??????

    To paraphrase Sade’s views on life: We’re born, we eat, we shit, we fuck, we kill and then when we die.

    My own view on the miracle of life: Picture some blocked sewer, blocked with used tampons toilet paper and shit, and some rats fucking on this disgusting pile-up. The rats will breed, and their descendants will procreate in similar places. This will probably go on for ever, give or take; THAT IS THE MIRACLE OF LIFE.
