I have decided to decrease my future effect on carbon emissions. To do this I will not have children!

That way I can use the dryer guilt free, woot!

For a second there I thought you were linking to this old article, which copped a bit of a flak at the time.

I know your post is tongue-in-cheek, but it's an interesting topic.

I'm kinda conflicted. We're over-populated. It makes sense that not having children is more environmentally friendly (unless you use the dryer twice as much because you're "using what my kids would use anyway" - that should make you feel more guilty :)). But I can't get my head around people who have the honest mindset of "I'm not going to have kids because it's better for the planet." Whatever happened to not having kids because you don't want them? :(

And Carbon Emissions. Yeah, we need to cut back on them. But no, there is no solid link between carbon emissions and climate change.

It's all very confoozing.
