That is a really cool infographic. I guess France should ban children.

It's not as far off as you may think. Many noted environmentalists have advocated for world-wide implementation of a one-child policy, similar to what China once had, in the far chance such legislation would actually do anything to help the environment. Honestly, this just goes to further my opinion that the banner of "stopping global warming" is just fear-mongeling to get people to accept their authoritarian agenda. Hitler did it with the Jews, now the radical left is doing it with the climate.

I sort of want to put a baby in my girlfriend in the back of a Hummer.

This is quite interesting. My family already do a few of these so it's good to know a little action can make a difference.

I suppose the first 3 are ones we do on a regular basis:
1) Recycling is something we do all the time, encouraged by government policy.
2) Hang dry clothes - we almost never use the tumble dryer, we use an indoor airer instead.
3) We use energy-saving light bulbs and LED lights around our home.

It'd be really difficult to live car-free in the UK though, I depend heavily on one to get around everyday.

Always open to meeting/talking to people, so feel free to add me as friend or pop up for a chat

I haven't been on a plane for about 10 years so I'm OK on that one XD Maybe it makes up for forgetting my TV is left on when I fall asleep at night watching Netflix

I'm not sure. But I like a good bonfire.

The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.

Hey I'm doing pretty good. For now, I don't own a car and I have also "eaten a plant-based diet" since I was in 6th grade.
