Self-Important Professors With Silly Ideas Should Have to Pay a Carbon Tax For All the Hot Air They Create

Australian professor of Obstetrics Barry Walters has demanded that every human family with more than two children be required to pay a carbon tax, to offset the carbon footprint created by the extra babies.
"Every newborn baby in Australia represents a potent source of greenhouse gas emissions for an average of 80 years, not simply by breathing but by the profligate consumption of resources typical of our society," he wrote.

"Far from showering financial booty on new mothers and rewarding greenhouse-unfriendly behaviour, a 'baby levy' in the form of a carbon tax should apply, in line with the 'polluter pays' principle."

The professor's demands predictably flew like a lead balloon with Australia's more baby-friendly population.
Australian Family Association spokeswoman Angela Conway said it was ridiculous to blame babies for global warming.

"I think self-important professors with silly ideas should have to pay carbon tax for all the hot air they create," she said. "There's masses of evidence to say that child-rich families have much lower resource consumption per head than other styles of households.

As anyone with a brain who is paying attention should understand by now, CO2 is not an existential risk. If he truly wanted to learn about true existential risks, Walters should visit the Lifeboat Foundation, Michael Anissimov, or any number of websites and bloggers linked here and there, who actually deal with real-life existential, global risks.

Global warming is the perfect crisis for idiots. Since it is not a serious problem, it doesn't matter that those working so hard and expensively on "solutions" haven't a clue as to what they are doing. The fact that they expose themselves so easily as anti-natalists, anti-humans, anti-babies etc., and promote the "post-human" vision of the planet Earth, suggests that they are not very intelligent.

They failed to learn the lessons of the Club of Rome, Stephen Schneider, Paul Ehrlich, and the many other doomseekers of the 1970s and 80s who now look like total fools for their doomish predictions.

As Bruce Hall points out in Hall of Record, there are no requirements for evidence or proof in the "global warming" crusade. Just making a prediction is considered "new evidence." What morons.

This 'professor' is one sick eff. The CNN Meteorologist saying that the Man-Made Climate Change theory is "arrogant" is a great advancement in the cause of educating the masses with the truth. Hopefully more of the MSM will start speaking out. The word is spreading, tell all your friends and family, and tell them to do the same.

Gore and his Man-Bear-Pig. The politicians on board with this scam must be simply out of their minds.
For one thing, there’s plenty of oil and NG, we just need to drill for it and refine it. Also expand and improve nuclear, wind, hydro, solar and hemp fuel.

Can’t anybody talk some sense into Gore, McCain, Bush and Obama about how temperatures rise first, and THEN carbon-dioxide levels rise.
Carbon-dioxide doesn’t cause warming, sun activity does, warming causes CO2 levels to rise.
