As someone who is pro-federalism when it comes to the issue of abortion and gets frustated by those who vote based on that one issue, I must say that I find one aspect of this article on global warming really creepy.
“Two groundbreaking studies, one from the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research and one from the Futures Group, found that simply by meeting women’s existing needs for voluntary family planning, we could reduce carbon emissions by between 8 and 15 percent.”
We all know that ‘voluntary family planning’ is liberal code for abortion. I sincerely hope that when a woman is considering that option, that reducing carbon emissions isn’t a factor in her decision-making process. To trivialize babies to something on par with a carbon trading scheme seems like a sure indicator of the decline of western civilization.
