We Are the Disease
A friend of mine once dated a girl who, one night while eating pizza with a group of us, proudly proclaimed "humans are the disease! I knew then that it was not her mind that my friend was attracted to. I was reminded of this when I read an article of a UK woman who aborted her pregnancy "to save the planet".
"Having children is selfish. It's all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet," says Toni, 35.

"Every person who is born uses more food, more water, more land, more fossil fuels, more trees and produces more rubbish, more pollution, more greenhouse gases, and adds to the problem of over-population."

While most parents view their children as the ultimate miracle of nature, Toni seems to see them as a sinister threat to the future.
There's just a bit too much of the anti-human infused within contemporary environmentalism. The incessant drumbeat of environmental doom and exploitation of gaia-mother at the hands of rapacious humans. That we came so close to electing the cyborg-ish "Mr. Environment" Al Gore bears this out.

It's amazing how so many gravitate toward self-loathing.
