Diane Francis is Killing the Planet

Diane Francis, Editor-at-large for the National Post, contributes this pure drivel to the commentary page of the Financial Post. She argues that a “planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate” and stem the tide of global warming.

She complains that world leaders in Copenhagen “don’t even have this on their agenda,” and worries that unless governments limit couples to one kid, the human population will decimate the planet and wars over “water, scarce resources and spatial needs” will erupt.

The only problem: Ms. Francis has two kids (I mean, carbon emitting units) herself. Worse, her sister also has two kids.


Blatant hypocrisy aside, how would Ms. Francis intend to implement an international one-child policy? It might work in leftist European nations already committed to erasing their populations through rampant birth control and abortion, but Muslim nations would send the U.N. child police home in a body bag, probably headless.

With a world population of 6.7 billion, good luck with this one.
