Teens pledge not to have kids until action taken on climate
"Because even though I want to have children more than almost anything. What kind of a mother would I be if I brought a baby into a world where I couldn't make sure they were safe?"

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Teenagers have been bursting into the conversation surrounding — passionately advocating for the planet and their future living on it. But this college student is making her activism even more personal by pledging not to have children until leaders take action.

----------------------------------------------

From there, she and a friend decided to create a website where others could "pledge" not to have kids as well, creating the hashtag #NoFutureNoChildren.

"The name comes because we really feel often like we have no future, or that our government doesn't care about the future," she told CBS News. "And so we don't feel able to have children if their future isn't going to be safe."

----------------------------------------------

We are about to witness the destruction of everything we love because of the climate crisis," wrote Allie Rougeot, a 20-year-old native of Ontario, Canada. "I feel incapable of welcoming an innocent human being into this world knowing the facts."

Well that should kill Bernie and Lizzy's idea of "Medicare for all".

With this idea, no one will be left to pay for it !

Good Job "Teeny Greeny's". jrSmiley_84_smiley_image.gifjrSmiley_99_smiley_image.jpg

At least it will  reduce the population, so no ideas being put forth by the democrats will be needed ! jrSmiley_79_smiley_image.gif

Besides....they only have 12 years left to live anyway (AOC Predicts)!

The climate issue has become a religion with the left. Can you imagine a young girl saying something like that?

Can't hold something hostage that isn't a human yet …. wouldn't you say ?

Have you built your shelter to be ready for 2030....the most probable day of reckoning (I gave AOC a year or two for ooops)?

I hate kids. The less around the better.

If I promise to pollute more will more of them promise not to have kids? I doubt that I can produce as much pollution as their combined offspring would; but I am willing to put on a good show- this is all about the show after all.

So you believe AOC?

We don't, so no, most of us haven't built a shelter yet. Though electing one of the Democratic insane exploding clown car of candidates will cause an epic jump in gun sales, and survival shelters being built. No one wants to be around for the shit storm they will bring.

If you follow AOC's advise you get your science from a master twitterer, that won in a district that "a glass of water with a D on it would be elected" according to Nancy Pelosi.

Has she figured out how to, or even if she should, use a garbage disposal yet?

Maybe she needs to cry some more fake tears, that is sure to save the planet. So what if it didn't work for illegal immigrants?

I haven't paid much attention to her.  She's not my congressperson.  If her constituents like her she'll stay.  If not?  They'll send her packing.

And the four work for universities that investigate "problems", the investigations being paid for by government grants.  If the four find that there is no problem, the grants go away and they are out of jobs.

I find it interesting that no one ever cared about the ozone layer until just after E.I. DuPont's patent on Freon expired and anyone could make and sell the stuff for far less than the price DuPont was charging.  Then, all of a sudden, ozone was super super important and the way to stop the problem was to outlaw Freon. SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE; DuPont had a safe substitute (with an active patent) available to step into the breach.

So no, it is not, and never has been, about the planet or the climate or saving civilization.  It's ALWAYS been about MONEY and POWER and nothing else.

Trust me  teens, no one out here in the world wants you to have kids anyway.

Truth is social activism is so unattractive that no males likely want to have children with her. This is just her way of not feeling passed over.

Having been born in, educated in and spending most of my life in Ontario, Canada, I'm embarrassed that someone educated there could not only be so ridiculously naive, but to publicly display it.

Buzz, I think we can take it as a given that anyone who is that ridiculously naive (which takes in most of the world, not just Ontario, population under the age of 30), will almost certainly choose to publicly display it.

We had a moonbat who wrote an article here a few years ago that came to the conclusion that the solution to solving climate change was that we all do the only moral thing, kill ourselves.

He then went on to weep about accidentally killing a bug and mourned the death of the produce he ate. Survival was immoral.

He wasn't willing to walk the walk through and lead by example.
