We are breeding ourselves to extinction along with every other species and we seem to be proud of it.
I am starting to climb the walls here.
Even though I’d have liked to have children, I am going to take the hit for the kids I would have loved to have and not have any because I would be too ashamed to tell my kids that when I was young, we had roaming tigers, lions, there were plenty of fish in the seas, and there was still a rainforest to speak of. In the 70s we knew what was coming and did nothing to stop it – partly because of our ridiculous religious beliefs. I am afraid it is no longer a case of “the more the merrier”. In 30 years time we’ll all be dreadfully sorry…
