she makes some good points,

but never asks this question:

is fewer babies on our crowded planet a badthing?

Depends who is having the babies that are still being made..

Our generation is smaller the then boomer generation..

Or childrens generation smaller again..

Population would be shrinking if the boomers hadn't got into yoga and salads..

Luckily our children seem to love Eating complete shite so they should shuffle of fairly quickly..

Anyway, I had a point..

Oh yes, kids today...

It does seem to be "MOSTLY" well, can't say this very nicely but "BURDEN SCUM" who are knocking out kids..

There are thankfully exceptions to the rule, and many.. but the gene pool is not undergoing a perfect example of natural selection.

The economic view (babies are good, they pay our pensions) seems opposed to the environmental view (unless we control population growth we will need 4 more planets in a few decades time to sustain us).

Some interesting reading:

Ecofascism assumes that everyone needs hundreds of discarded consumer goods, evermore hungry energy use, ever more chunky 4x4 cars, millions of processed highly manufactured ready meals to toss into landfill, and therefore population must be curtailed. Most of this stuff only exists to drive economic growth to pay off debt rather than because there's any genuine demand.

It is if the country's demographics are negative and you're planning to rely on an army of new workers to pay for your pension in 20 years time.
