Global Warming Follies

Is Australia the new China?

Posted in Follies by tjgavin on January 14, 2008

Just sad. Not even funny sad, just regular sad.

A WEST Australian medical expert wants families to pay a $5000-plus “baby levy” at birth and an annual carbon tax of up to $800 a child.

Writing in today’s Medical Journal of Australia, Associate Professor Barry Walters said every couple with more than two children should be taxed to pay for enough trees to offset the carbon emissions generated over each child’s lifetime.

Professor Walters, clinical associate professor of obstetric medicine at the University of Western Australia and the King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth, called for condoms and “greenhouse-friendly” services such as sterilisation procedures to earn carbon credits.

    If you wonder how we can have people who think that it’s ok to kill babies in the womb, just look at the filth that I have been asked to “moderate” today. I’ve cleaned up some of it so that I could preserve some sense of civility on this blog, but I’ve left enough so that you can see what normal people are up against:

    “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 F’ING LIFE anyway??????

    To paraphrase Sade’s views on life: We’re born, we eat, we sh-t, we f, 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 sh-t, and some rats f’ing 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.

    LOVE AND HUGS, HANDSOME PADDY xoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxo”

    Nice huh? Is this person someone you’d admire? I’ll guess not. Me neither. I thought long and hard about letting this post go through. But I thought it was important that those of us who only want to protect human life know what kind of nut jobs are out there.
