Liberals are so dramatic but in this case, maybe it isn’t such a bad thing? Call me cynical but I see a siler lining here. I’m talking about an ongoing pledge to not have children that liberals are signing to combat ‘climate change’.
At least they’re moving away from abortion as an option for birth control and stopping the issue at the source?
“I pledge not to have children until I am sure my government will ensure a safe future for them,” the petition signers vowed.
Lim posted her “story” to the pledge’s website, outlining her love for children and fear of climate change. The 18-year-old suggested folks currently having children are questionable parents because there is, at the moment, no way to ensure their safety from climate-related disaster.
“I’ve always imagined I would be a mother,” Lim said. “I know that for a lot of people, the decision to have children is something made later on in life, but for me it was never something I had to think about. I love children so much that I worked as a nanny over the summer between eleventh and twelfth grade.”
Lim explains that she wanted to have children and describes the various things she would love to do if she ever did but after reading the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report in September, she became “terrified.”
“I’m only a teenager, so I’ve learned about climate change for as long as I can remember. I’ve seen it all around me too,” she claimed. “In my province once in a century floods have started to happen every year. There are heatwaves in the summer, and in the winter we’re not able to skate on the pond anymore.”
“But the truth is that we are in so much more danger than I could have imagined,” Lim wrote. “We are facing changes that will be irreversible: the loss of ecosystems, the loss of fresh water, the loss of clean air.”
Last time I checked the online pledge was at 4,647 agreed pledges. I think we should hold them to this one. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
