Dead People For Alernative Fuel And Killing Your Third Born For Air Miles

by | 8th, January 2009

IN Sweden: “Dead People Will Provide Heat to Crematorium Facilities.” The green shirts will like that one.

But why wait for the human to die?

Having large families should be frowned upon as an environmental misdemeanour in the same way as frequent long-haul flights, driving a big car and failing to reuse plastic bags, says a report to be published today by a green think tank.

The paper by the Optimum Population Trust will say that if couples had two children instead of three they could cut their family’s carbon dioxide output by the equivalent of 620 return flights a year between London and New York.

Is that a fair trade – a return flight for your third born? What about we throw in a few hundred dollars and a lobster dinner?
