Hundreds of valuable suggestions are offered at this conference, and successful implementation of them is critical for preserving and restoring Earth’s biosphere. However, unless we also improve human fertility rates, the global change we know is needed will not happen. Our best efforts for improving human and environmental conditions are overwhelmed by increasing demands of our increasing human family.
On a personal level, our reproductive choices represent our greatest potential for preserving wildlife habitat and conserving natural resources. In North America, each new human we don’t create preserves 22 acres of biologically active land, potentially for 75 years. Ecological footprints by nation state may be found at the Global Footprint Network.
When a couple of us co-creates two more of ourselves, it’s considered “replacement level” with no impact on Earth’s biosphere. In reality, a couple’s environmental impact at least doubles when two more people are created. (Based on the formula: 2 + 2 = 4).
Considering the tens of thousands of existing children dying of preventable causes each day and the outrageous number of species going extinct, the intentional creation of one more of us by anyone anywhere can’t be justified today.
If you’re able to attend this year’s conference, please stop by our real life information table for more propaganda like the above, and to participate in fun surveys like this:
You’ll also have opportunities to explain why humans should continue breeding, sign an Affirmation of Non-breeding, add your 22 acres of preserved habitat to the effort, and find out if you qualify for our prestigious Meritorious Service Award (suitable for framing).
If you’re not able to attend, you’re still welcome to find out more about
The Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, and
to offer suggestions, make comments, and ask questions.
