Skip to comments.Climate change: Could we engineer greener humans? (Smaller, aversion to red meat & hibernate)

We can artificially induce intolerance to red meat by stimulating the immune system against common bovine proteins, he says. Liao envisions a medical aid like a nicotine patch that makes you sick if you try to eat red meat. Such a patch might sound like science fiction and for now it is but evidence has recently surfaced that people bitten by the lone star tick, native to the southern US, subsequently developed allergies to red meat, forcibly pushing them toward a vegetarian lifestyle.

Liao also argues that we can reduce the size of our environmental footprint by reducing the size of our physical footprint. Reducing height by 15cm would mean a reduction in mass of around 25%"
"women might one day decide to become a surrogate parent for rare species, such as sharks, dolphin, or pandas."
Nude pictures of most Democrat women would make me turn green.

Their spawn will vote Democrat, no doubt.
Now that's the test of a relationship. "You want me to give birth to a what?" "Tut tut, my dear, it's for The Planet."
We had smaller, less carnivorous, "greener" human beings if I understand that idiotic term correctly, for most of human history. They tended to starve a lot and lead shorter, more miserable, disease-ridden lives. Pass the burgers, please.
Is it wrong that I’d like to beat these people?
Um, no, it sounds nuts!
They brought back the Untermenschen idea!
I am sure that he’d be the first to volunteer his wife and kids to the cause.
Start the modified DNA injections and gene manipulation tomorrow!
It’s always liberals that can come up with such horrible ideas.
Look at it this way. Anyone willing to do that shouldn’t have offspring and they won’t. At least not the human kind.
By what right do these angel social engineers dare to claim the legal authority to redesign the human species?
Wouldn’t the stronger moral claim belong to those who would defend the human species against such tyrants, even if it means spilling their blood to do so?
Absolutely not. Have at it! Maybe I’ll join you.
Words cannot describe the sickness residing in this guy’s brain.
"Welcome home from the hospital, dear...CRIKEY! Whatinellizzat?"
"It's our new spawn, dear. Do we have any grubs in the fridge?"
Go to hell!!!!
Meet your progeny.
And doesn't it eventually turn into a monster and end up eating the family pets and escaping and roaming the sewers in search of food?
