Save the planet. Die at your appointed time. It’s for the kids.

Wait. It’s instructions for the kids.

  1. I took the quiz and it indicated my life should have ended at age 17. Why is it that all the ‘Save the Earth, do not reproduce, die young’ etc. crowds tend to be caucasian? I never see a group of blacks or asians lamenting the planet and vowing not to reproduce. According to a column by Pat Buchanan, In 1950, whites were 28 percent of world population and Africans 9 percent, a ratio of three-to-one. In 2060, the ratio will remain the same. But the colors will be reversed. People of African ancestry will be 25 percent of the world’s population. People of European descent will have fallen to 9.8 percent. More arresting is that the white population is shrinking not only in relative but in real terms. Two hundred million white people, one in every six on earth – a number equal to the entire population of France, Britain, Holland and Germany – will vanish by 2060. The Caucasian race is going the way of the Mohicans. I wonder what the great leaders of Western Civ would have to say about this if they were here today?

  2. I filled it out accurately – said I was suppoed to die at 3.8 At some point, bitter, clinging people like me might start taking to things like that as threats to our well-being…

  3. OK, I don’t know how long I have left, but I am still living. Beyond that, ‘environment’ and ‘europe’ are leading me to post this link: Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus…[i]ntroduced as a global warming skeptic, Klaus objected: I’m just surprised to hear that I’m skeptical vis-a-vis environmentalism. I’m not skeptical. I am totally against it. My today’s thinking is fundamentally influenced by the fact that I spent most of my life under the communist regime which ignored and brutally violated human freedom and, as I remember quite well, wanted to command not only the people, but also the nature…. I do not see the future threats to free society coming from the old and old- fashioned communist ideology. The name of the new danger will undoubtedly be different, but its substance will be very similar. Like their predecessors, they will be certain that they have the right to sacrifice man and his freedom to make their idea reality. In the past, it was in the name of the Marxists or of the proletariat; this time, in the name of the planet. Structurally, it is very similar. The current danger, as I see it, is environmentalism and especially its strongest version, climate alarmism.

  4. Age 5.7 here Seems because I earn more, I suddenly got a huge increase in the amount of greenhouse gasses I produce. Oddly enough I was less environmentally friendly when I was in university, where I had about 4000GBP a year to spend. Seems I would have been better off considering this calculator. Going by that some people I know who are most environmentally concious are those who can afford to be. In summation the calculator is a very bizarre and weird.

  5. Whoo hooo! Power to the environmental proletariat! Sign me up! As long as I get to be something with ‘Peoples Commissar’ in it; I’m their enforcer. Gimmee that Corvette…………you energy hog! How dare you deprive the rest of us of our share of resources! Thump! Thump! Thump! Robert Heinlein would love this mind set. My take on the population shift is frequently the ethnic groups having the most kids are the ones having the most trouble NOT living in abject poverty. Which gives all the aid agnecies and NGOs a reason to be after all. Which in a perverse, but darkly humorous way is using more than their fair share of resources! Therefore, as the ‘Peoples Commissar for Resource Fairness’ I’ll be enforcing the State (as in World) established limit of 1 kid per family. Besides taking their excess material goods! Bring on the mother hunts!
