A Habitable World?
http://www.nysun.com/article/58455 ^ | Mark Steyn

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody hears it, is it because Al Gore and a bunch of elderly rockers organized an all-star stadium gala on its behalf? The colossal flopperoo of Live Earth is a heartening reminder that there are some things too ridiculous even for global pop culture, and one of them is the Reverend Almer Gortry speaking truth to power ballads.

Why did so few people feel the urge to rock against climate change? Touchingly enough, the organizers put it down to the weather. Dismal TV ratings? "The BBC blamed the poor figures on Saturday's good weather." Sluggish ticket sales for the live events? "Organisers of Live Earth Johannesburg are convinced climate change is to blame for the paltry turn-out at the Coca Cola Dome today. Promoter John Langford claims it snowed last week for the first time in a quarter of a century, and the freezing conditions are keeping people away." Too hot to stay in and watch it on TV, too freezing to go out and watch it in person: clearly, climate change is rampaging out of control

I don’t want to say it, but we know whose fault it really is. He and the magnificent Rove with his weather control machine.

Maybe the organisers of Live Earth Johannesburg thought it was summer there.

The civilized world is committing suicide by birth control. The barbarians aren’t.

Professor John Guillebaud. . . . . . . . . . As the professor sees it, having fewer children is “the simplest, quickest and most significant thing any of us could do to leave a sustainable and habitable planet for our children and grandchildren.” The best thing we can do for our children is not to have them.


If we don’t have children then we don’t have to worry about the climate change effect on them or grandchildren. What a stupid idea that is.

Maybe the world that comes after western civilization will be more "sustainable" but I doubt it will be more "habitable."

Steyn ping!

I can’t take any anti-population growth types seriously until they prove their commitment to their cause by killing themselves.
