Save the world? Why?
These are the questions raised by a blog post on Angry Toxicologist. Angry Tox comments on an idea that we should shrink the human population to help natural systems. Great idea, but as Angry Tox points out, it falls into the trap of advocating a green and joyless future.
If we can't find a joyful green future to talk about, then I don't think we're going to find very many supporters.
Environmentalism shouldn't be an excuse for hating people.
