38% Of Millennials Worried About Having Kids In The Era Of Hotcoldwetdry

People have always had kids during times of climate change, because the climate has always been doing something. Throughout the Holocene there have been warm and cool periods, and still humanity persisted in having children. But, now, you have youths of breeding age having a collective freakout over (well, everything) a tiny increase in the global temperature, thanks to being taught this in school

More than a third of millennials share Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s worry about having kids while the threat of climate change looms

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made headlines last week when she suggested that some young Americans are concerned about having children because of the threat that climate change could pose to future generations.

“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around … there’s scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Instagram Live. “And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world, and we have a moral obligation to leave a better world for them.”

The 29-year-old New York progressive went on to say young people are grappling with the question: “Is it OK to still have children?”

The comment garnered significant media attention and blowback from pundits, who said the remark amounted to Ocasio-Cortez advocating for a ban on children.

I agree with AOC that Believers in man-caused global warming/climate change should stop having kids. That way, most of this fuzzyheaded, un-scientific idiocy will go away as they won’t be teaching children about this stupidity.

An INSIDER poll conducted on SurveyMonkey Audience found that nearly 30% of Americans either strongly agree, agree, or somewhat agree that a couple should consider the negative and potentially life-threatening effects of climate change when deciding whether or not to have children. Just more than 8% of Americans strongly agreed that climate change should be a consideration.

Just more than 40% of Americans said they either somewhat disagree, disagree, or strongly disagree that climate change should play a role in the decision to have children. About 18% of Americans strongly disagreed that the future impacts of climate change should be considered by would-be parents.

Nearly 38% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 29 agreed that climate change should be a factor in a couple’s decision about whether to have children. And 34% of Americans between the ages of 30 and 44 agreed.

Agreement was also linked to the belief that climate change is man-made: 38% of respondents who said “the earth is getting warmer mostly because of human activity such as burning fossil fuels” said couples should factor in the effect of that warming on their children before having them. Meanwhile, 33% disagreed, and another third were neutral or didn’t know.

Older Americans were not so keen on this idea, with the percentages going down. Thankfully, it’s just 38% of Millennials who are climate change idiots.

    This sort of thing is nothing new. The same thing happened back when activists convinced people that Nuclear war was imminent and so it was irresponsible to bring children into the world back in the 60’s. Then in the 17’s there was the “population bomb” so it was irresponsible to bring children into this world. So now it’s global warming. Problem is, The USA, like other Western nations already has a declining population. So she should preach her population control blather to the people who need it: Central Americans, Africans and Asians.

    But the really good news is that millinnials can now pretend that their selfish motives to not have children are actually a virtue.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      PH is actually correct. This issue came up many decades ago.

      Point of order: The US does not have a declining population.

      As the US shifted from agrarian to manufacturing to knowledge/finance the birth rate dropped, as more children became an economic liability.

      • formwiz says:

        No, the birth rate declined somewhat, but kids were hardly a liability. Baby Boomer families were having 4, 5, 8 kids.

        What happened was Lefties started aborting theirs.

        Point of disorder: You keep claiming the Conservative white male is being swept away in the Brown Wave. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens when the wall is finished and no more illegals (or imported Moslems) come flooding in.

        Certainly the Leftist population is declining which is why you need illegals and imported Moslems.

    • formwiz says:

      Have to disagree, Prog.

      ZPG came about through scare books like Ehrlich and the rise of feminutism. People were having kids well into the 60s (the Baby Boom didn’t stop until ’64 and that was because the WWII crowd was getting too old to have kids).

      If some people stopped having kids because of the threat of nucular war, I’m guessing it was damned few. I am also willing to stand corrected, but I remember those years and that was a topic I just can’t recall.

      • formwiz says:

        s/b Prof.

        Fat fingers.

        • Professor Hale says:

          I said the USA has a declining population. That doesn’t include our unrestricted immigration from other countries. People illegally on our land, like temporary visitors, are not counted as part of “our” population.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            pH,

            You typed: “The USA, like other Western nations, already has a declining population.”

            The population of the USA is not declining (in terms of numbers).

            You may have an argument that we are declining in the sense that the GOP and Trump are harming this nation. Are we a nation in decline? Possibly.

            You may have an argument if you’re referring to the percentage of white people in the USA. Is that what you meant?

            Or maybe you meant the rate of growth is declining?

          • formwiz says:

            OK, interesting point about who counts as part of the population.

            Idiot Girl tries to argue against a valid point about real numbers with a superficial point based on all his Lefty racial revenge nonsense.

            Her real issue is Trump has turned the country around while places under control of the Demos are stagnating and dying.

            As for the % of white people, race traitors like Harvey do all they can to encourage the self-extermination of black, but, if his only crutch is the influx of illegals, then white people, Conservative, of course, are still going strong as a majority in this country.

            Are we a nation in decline? Possibly.

            No, only where the Left is in power. Take San Fiasco.

            Please.

            It was doing better when it was sinking into the bay.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    If Representative Ocasio-Cortez is so daft, stupid, twiddle-dum, twaddle-dee, why is the right doing a full court press on her?

    Certainly she’s more sane than DJT. Certainly she’s more composed at 29 than DJT is at 75 or something. Certainly she’s smarter than DJT.

    It’s Fear. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to violence. And DJT is counting on you.

    • formwiz says:

      It’s not the Right, it’s the Demo Establishment, they’re just letting the right do its dirty work (the enemy of my enemy is my friend).

      and Trump, last I looked, is still kicking the Lefties’ collective ass, so he must have a better grip on reality that they.

      Composed? Shirley, you jest. “I’m the boss”? Making an enemies list?

      As for smarter, lessee now

      Trump MBA from Wharton back when it meant something, billionaire, got the Norks to close down Yongbyon.

      Occasional Cortex economics major BU, barista, came up with a plan so bad it was denounced by the founder of Greenpeace.

      And all the violence these days is on the Left, although that Antifa coward who clocked the Conservative in Berkeley is sure in trouble.

    • Jl says:

      “It’s fear. Fear less to anger..”. More garden variety projection from the group that fears the “climate”. ..

  3. Dana says:

    As I noted previously, leftists were already having fewer children than normal people, so this is nothing new; it’s just another excuse.

    Of course, there’s a real reason why: conservatives are just plain better in bed than liberals, so naturally conservative women have more opportunities to get pregnant. Conservative men being, on average, physically stronger than liberal males, it stands to reason that women are more attracted to them.

    The truth is that some millennials are worried about this, but they were the ones to weak for us to want them to reproduce in the first place. Our society needs more reproduction among the physically and mentally strong; the Special Snowflakesâ„¢, on the other hand, serve society far better if they die out in one generation.

    It all follows: liberal males are more likely to want help because they are less capable to taking care of themselves, and women are more likely to find men who can take care of themselves attractive when compared to males — not men — who are weak and pussified.

    • david7134 says:

      Its nerds, we are the best lovers as we sit around thinking and planning all the time.

      • Dana says:

        The nerds’ biggest worries are that their wives love them for their incomes, but seek out cowboys on the side to actually sire their children.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Cons oppose contraception because it helps control “their women” who seek out smart guys who appreciate them and who don’t bully and beat them. And Con wives love them some Black men, too.

          Dana, have you sired children on the side by another man’s wife and had him raise your children? Does that sound like a conservative strategy? Are you sure your children are “your” children?

          • formwiz says:

            Sounds like Harvey is projecting again. Most of the domestic abuse in the news is Lefties doing the beating. And it’s Conservative women in the vanguard of the anti-abortion movement, not the men, so Idiot Girl is just pulling stuff out of her ass yet again.

            Your average Conservative believes in home and family, as opposed to your average Lefty, who believes in nothing.

            And Con wives love them some Black men, too.

            Well, when you find one, let us know.

            PS Jessica the Negro seems to be worried more about her own home and hearth, but that’s what projection is.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Just look at your King Kon Kid, DJ Trump! He’s accused by at least 20 women of sexual assault, even rape. He has fathered at least 5 babies from at least 3 different baby-mamas. He has paid women for sex, then paid them to deny they had sex with him.

      Do you think the women who willingly copulated with Trump did so because of his biceps or his wallet? That’s rhetorical.

      But it may be true that the dumb, brutish Cons (Neanderthals) have more sex than normal people (H. sapiens)(there was no evidence they were better at it). But is it consensual sex (see Trump, DJ above)? And Con kids will be pouring swimming pools for the kids of lib wimps like Bill Gates, Tom Steyer and Mark Zuckerberg. Recent evidence shows Neanderthal DNA amongst us.

      WE understand that you have precious little experience evaluating scientific papers, but here’s the money shot from the paper you claim proves “Cons are strong and Libs are weak”.

      “Among men of lower socioeconomic status (SES), strength predicted increased support for redistribution; among men of higher SES, strength predicted increased opposition to redistribution.” Wow – rich guys oppose social policies and poor guys favor social policies.

      BTW, if Con Men are so tough, why do they need so many guns?

        Crusader Rabbit throw all the stuff that has never been proven and expects intelligent people to buy it (I said intelligent, not Lefties).

        Do you think the women who willingly copulated with Trump did so because of his biceps or his wallet? That’s rhetorical.

        No, that’s jealousy on the Bugs’ part. What, you feel inferior because a white man was better with women than you?

        Trump was a good-looking guy in his youth with a lot of charm and a swashbuckling style. Errol Flynn had the same attributes and did OK.

        But it may be true that the dumb, brutish Cons (Neanderthals) have more sex than normal people (H. sapiens)(there was no evidence they were better at it). But is it consensual sex blah blah, blah blah

        Well, it’s true Conservative men and women have more kids than wussy, gutless, manbunned drones on the Left which is why the Lefties have to import illegals and Moslems to try to hang onto their power (ain’t workin’, kidz), so Lefties are feeling very insecure these days.

        Wow – rich guys oppose social policies and poor guys favor social policies.

        Depends on which policies. Anti- or pro-abortion? Anti- or pro-same sex marriage?

        Actually, Agrona would seem to have it backwards. considering the rich guys he mentions are all Lefties.

        BTW, if Con Men are so tough, why do they need so many guns?

        The same reason Sam Colt did a bang-up business. Protect their families from the savages.

        BTW How many Lefties are in the Rangers?

  4. Bkhuna says:

    I fear millenials raising kids. Period.

  5. StillAlive says:

    I’m seeing this meme around the internet. to take the heat off the leftist communist agenda they are trying to bait the right into social issue debates. Ridicule and absurdity to inflame emotional tensions by the right to forget all about the lefts hostile take over of the United States under the pretense of a bona fide Democratic party who in its entirety is now a Manchurian candidate.

    Don’t fall for these debates of social justice. Don’t take your eyes from the prize.

  6. JDaktonstall says:

    The white/non Hispanic birth rate in the USA is now down to 1.66 as of 2017
    That is less than 2 the number needed to keep the white population from declining
    Teach have you deviddd got or against bringing children into this world ?

  7. Sabre22 says:

    No kids for Americans but muslims are breeding like rabbits all over the world. That is dumber than a box of rocks

    • Professor Hale says:

      Sabre,
      I understand your point of view, but you are falling into the trap of looking at the world like it is a board game and you have to “win”. You have no control over what other people do or fail to do to reproduce. Other than a few very famous instances in Communist countries, governments on earth have done nothing about population control. Doing so, implies you have some moral authority to make that choice on behalf of the planet. That is how the Communists, progressives and liberals think. They are so darned smart that they know what is best for everyone else. The truth is, no one living today has any obligation to the past or to the future to contribute or withhold their progeny from it. The Future belongs, rightfully, to those who show up. Anyone who doesn’t show up, doesn’t get a say in what it looks like. Only someone with enormous like Soros thinks they can decide what the world looks like after they are long gone.
