News Headlines, “Today it has been announced by a government department, that carbon offsets are a theoretical idea and in practice useless”.

Ah...then intelligent people who care would have less children.
The net intelligence and empathy of the species would plummet...evolution in action.
Agriculture maybe already did that? 🤷‍♂️

Just chucking it out there that there would be far less morons in the world if it wasn't for food in shops, and that would be the purest form of offsetting available

You're never going to beat:

"London bus found on moon"


Is the Sunday Sport still going?

'Freddie Starr ate my hamster' runs it close.

Ref the OP. No, you wont see it as a headline. Why ? Because Government finds agriculture a pita, so whenever the NFU presents something as being a good idea, which wont absorb any Government head space but will in actual fact benefit those who make the donations that keep political parties solvent, then Government will support it. Why wouldn't they ?

We've been encouraging larger families for decades, assisting those who can't or won't assist themselves....already evolving!
Somehow "we" carry a fair part of that global impact, and now the blame for that impact

I value a vasectomy at $300,000 based on how I view future inflation, and add gov't debt to that... what a f**king mess we're leaving for them

I like your plan. Govts could offer 50k to anyone signing up to have the snip, be quids in on future costs and reduce global population & the resultant climate damage at the same time.
Better still, those awful poor people would be the first to take it up, while leaving more fertile females for Boris the alleycat to visit.

It would be far more acceptable to the population to give a carrot, rather than the stick that was the Chinese attempt at population control.👍

The rationale behind encouraing larger families is that we need young people to do the work. Would that be the logical follow on from retiring in our 50s? Get rid of the ones with experience and wisdom and replace them with youngsters taught how to do it by the universities?
