A carbon tax on babies?!?
Now I've heard everything

Australian Broadcasting Corporation

A radical proposal to reduce the population has been published by Barry Walters, an associate professor of obstetrics medicine in the Medical Journal of Australia.

Dr. Walters argues that families who have chosen to have more than a defined number of children (2) should be charged a carbon tax, conversely, he feels that those who purchase condoms or undergo sterilization procedures should be awarded a carbon credit.
"population control seems to have gone off the rails in the last 30 years," says Dr. Egger, an adjunct professor of health sciences at Southern Cross University in New South Wales, "it's almost forbidden to talk about it these days. It's almost like smoking-you have to go out in the alleys to talk about it."

we have always speculated that some day they will tax us for the air that we breathe... it looks like they're trying to make that a reality.

Funny how those of us that bought into the population control hysterics of the 1970's are now being crowded out by those that never got the message. We are now expected to step aside and allow illegal immigration to over populate and change the culture of America and every other developed country that put population numbers on hold. Thanks but no thanks. To quote Jack Nicholson, "go peddle insanity somewhere else. We're all stocked up here."

Population control is important as we draw closer to the capacity of the earth to sustain us. Problem is that not everyone understands it. Crazy idea to tax babies because I don't like TAXES on every little thing. maybe someone can come up with another idea that wouldn't involve money. HA!

Paul Erlich. "The Population Bomb". 1968.

Ehrlich penetrated the American consciousness with his 1968 book, The Population
Bomb. Given the economic stagflation that struck the world in the 1970s,
books with pessimistic outlooks claiming humanity had enormous problems to solve
were to be expected.

Ehrlich went way beyond this and instead predicted famine and disaster on a
scale unprecedented in world history. In the prologue to The Population Bomb
he wrote, “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s and
1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash
programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can prevent a substantial
increase in the world death rate…”

In the prologue to The Population Bomb, Ehrlich is quite explicit that,
“Our position requires that we take immediate action at home and promote
effective action worldwide. We must have population control at home, hopefully
through changes in our value system, but by compulsion if voluntary methods
fail.”

Believing that the United States could only support a population of 150 million,
Ehrlich proposed that “luxury taxes could be placed on layettes, cribs,
diapers, diaper services, [and] expensive toys…” and suggested giving
“responsibility prizes” to couples who went at least five years without
having children or to men who got vasectomies. He called for setting up a federal
Bureau of Population and Environment to oversee reducing U.S. population growth.


Sounds a lot like the Left Reverend AlGore, doesn't he?

Hmmm... and how many people are starving to death because there isn't enough food to go around? meanwhile the rich, who keep getting richer, throw food away because they don't like it.
