Quote of the day

Mark Steyn, (in The Corner), responding to the comment from an emeritus professor of family planning at University College, London, that "the greatest thing anyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to have one less child."
In those terms, surely the greatest thing everyone in Britain could do to help the future of the planet would be to reduce his carbon footprint to zero by killing himself. The United Kingdom's present fertility rate is not three children or even two but 1.6 or 1.7, and the British will be extinct long before the polar bear. And when the self-loathing westerners are gone how many Yemeni imams will want to man the late shift at the local Greenpeace office?
