I grant there is a need to be green. The carrying capacity of earth FOR HUMANS has been exceeded. There are shortages of arable land, fresh water, ocean fish, mineral resources, energy sources. There is pollution that cannot be expeditiously disposed of. These problems have been caused by overpopulation. Overpopulation has been caused by people with an uncontrollable "need to breed", who are pumping out litters of spawn with no more thought of consequences than cats, rats, and dogs.
Since I have not contributed to the problem, I am not going to be "green" unless someone sticks a gun to my head. And that is coming, unfortunately.
All you religious wackos and cultural idiots with your "go forth and be fruitful" crapola mantras -- YOU be green. You are the effing problem, Not me.
"If you are against birth control and abortion, you are a effing idiot -- LITERALLY."
