We’ve already introduced Twitchy readers to BirthStrike, the U.K.-based group who are too afraid to have children because of their fear of climate change. “The natural world is collapsing around us,” one member told the BBC. “I couldn’t bring a child into that.”

Unfortunately, that fear isn’t limited to the U.K. One attendee of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ appearance at SXSW asked her if she thought it was still OK to have children; “It’s a moral issue,” she said, noting that watered-down proposals to stop climate change are going to kill us.

We have no doubt that there is more than just one man who has used climate change as an excuse not to have children, and on Thursday Outside published his story of having a vasectomy so as not to contribute further to the warming of the planet.

That’s because there are simply too many humans on this planet. We’ve all been told that driving an electric car or putting solar panels on our roofs will help, but that involves buying more stuff, which has a terrible impact on the environment, no matter how green the image. Two people deciding to make fewer humans eliminates the entire cycle of consumption that would fuel that kid’s life.

The idea that there are too many humans on the planet certainly isn’t new; Thomas Malthus was freaking out over overpopulation in the 18th Century; it would be fun to bring him back during a seance and tell him China alone is home to more than one billion people.

Anyway, we won’t argue with anyone who chooses not to have children for whatever reason, especially climate hysteria.
