The battle is on . . . Planet vs. People

Scientists at Oregon State have a suggestion on how to save the planet from greenhouse gasses . . . stop reproducing.  Yep.  That's their plan.  They want to save the planet (for what or whom I don't know) from human babies.  (Link to story here.)

What's next?  Saving the planet from toddlers?  Adults?  Old folks?

The global warming nuts have picked sides in what they see as a raging battle between human beings and what they believe is an imminently and easily destructible planet.  

Their premise is wrong and they've picked the wrong side.  They've picked the side of the inanimate and soul-less planet and ignored the value of individual people.  You.  Me.  Your kids and grandkids.  They're saying it would be better if some (or all) of us had never been born.

Yes, human beings use the resources of the earth.  But, guess what, God gave us the earth and its resources to use!  We should do what we can to preserve the planet, but why?  For future generations.  Yes, those very generations of children that we're no longer supposed to have.

The bounty of the earth is plentiful.  Be fruitful and multiply.
