Skip to comments.How Engineering the Human Body Could Combat Climate Change (Obama's America)

Liao: Well one of the things that we noticed is that human ecological footprints are partly correlated with size. Each kilogram of body mass requires a certain amount of food and nutrients and so, other things being equal, the larger person is the more food and energy they are going to soak up over the course of a lifetime. There are also other, less obvious ways in which larger people consume more energy than smaller people---for example a car uses more fuel per mile to carry a heavier person, more fabric is needed to clothe larger people, and heavier people wear out shoes, carpets and furniture at a quicker rate than lighter people, and so on.
And so size reduction could be one way to reduce a person's ecological footprint. For instance if you reduce the average U.S. height by just 15cm, you could reduce body mass by 21% for men and 25% for women, with a corresponding reduction in metabolic rates by some 15% to 18%, because less tissue means lower energy and nutrient needs.
Liao: That's right. It's been suggested that, given the seriousness of climate change, we ought to adopt something like China's one child policy. There was a group of doctors in Britain who recently advocated a two-child maximum. But at the end of the day those are crude prescriptions---what we really care about is some kind of fixed allocation of greenhouse gas emissions per family. If that's the case, given certain fixed allocations of greenhouse gas emissions, human engineering could give families the choice between two medium sized children, or three small sized children. From our perspective that would be more liberty enhancing than a policy that says "you can only have one or two children."....

Read the entire article to see what the Obama left has planned for you and your family to 'save the planet' from you and your family.
May God save us from these Nazi freaks.

I believe we just need to start eliminating these kinds of people, just like the other nazis we took care of.
How about 4 or 5 lilliputian size kids? This has to be the dumbest idea I've head this month. Maybe this was an article for April 1st that got released early.
Of course, the commissars get to keep larger bodies... it’s the little people that have to get littler.
Eating turnips, driving donkey carts, living in caves, and shrinking down to the size of Hobbits... that’s what the commissars want for The Rest Of Us.
Toto, I don't think we're in the Kansas any of us knew any more.
The utilitarian/Hitlerian vision of an improved human being, created by man, not God, is still alive and well. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, saw herself as superior to “the Negro,’ whom she hoped to exterminate.
Leftists are anti-human. They always have been.
What about the carbon footprint of short people who fart a lot?
Dang it, you're supposed to ping me if you're going to talk about me on thread... :-(
Reducing illegal immigration will greatly reduce global warming.
How does allowing the poor to flood across the border to buy 10 MPG clunkers help the ozone?
Their carbon footprint was much less South of the border , when they walked everywhere.
Using science to serve and justify an ideological end. Just another group of Nazis.
Genetic engineering and hormone therapy are too expensive to administer. A more cost-effective alternative would be just to ration food so that children are mildly malnurished in their childhood, and grow up with stunted growth. I mean, this is where all of this war on food stuff is going, right?
They can KISS MY biomASS.
Liao and his ilk are freaks of the first order.
I'm doing my part to keep us warm!
I'm obviously public enemy number one (or two) to the warmists.
Never mind that I have a very small carbon footprint, not because I give a damn about AGW, but just that I believe those who can conserve should.
The left has always dreamt of a New Soviet Man...
Till January 20th 2013.
I’d like this twit to look up at me and tell me this BS.
I’m 5’18” btw.
“We represent the Communist guild..the Communist guild...the Communist guild..We represent the Communist guiiiild! We welcome you to O-ba-ma land!”
They should run this theory by Representitive Jerry Nadler.
And if you might potentially have a third medium child you can kill it for a dollar.
6-7 and gassy? No problem light’em up with a match — saves on heat
Get them out by Friday.
You don’t get paid
Till the last ones well on his way.
They’ve been working on this idea since 1972.
Sounds like a comedy routine proposing a human race of dwarves...
Handled correctly this administration could actually be laughed out of the White-Hut..
Might help the war on drugs since a dwarf would require less DOPE to get high..
Less water to get clean and less cotton to make clothing..
He looks like a ChiCom....
They don’t need to be all that high tech about it - genetic engineering, pshaw. Feudal masters discovered millennia ago that denying their serfs a protein rich diet resulted in physically smaller and weaker populations. Of course that made dominating the peasantry with the threat of physical violence all the more effective - another feature I’m sure these Nazi freaks would also find attractive.
We should all march to DC and reduce our weight...55 grains at a time. Or 62 grains. Or even 150 grains at a time if you prefer the heavier caliber.
That way when the Martians come out of their undergound caverns to visit Earth they will be happy when they are welcomed by little green men.
Ironically, another “scientific” study was posted here, I think yesterday, arguing that global warming would make people smaller. That was presented as a bad thing.
Put these two articles together, however, and it demonstrates that global warming automatically cancels itself out.
How did that work for North Korea?
Let’s reengineer humanity for a fraud.
These folks are 180 degree’s out of sane.
Here’s his blog. He allows comments. Happy FReeping!
The guy claims that they aren’t doing bioengineering, oh, but they are. Our skies are filled with toxins on almost a daily basis now, and guess who the main victims are? The U.S. and Europe (plus a few other NATO countries).
No one knows why, everyone denies, but it’s right in front of our faces.
Bee kills, bird kills, fish kills, memory loss and Morgellon’s, just some of the evil the psychotic and Satanist nut jobs are inflicting upon us.
Who knows the end game. The way it’s looking, to rid the earth of more of the intelligent producers, while leaving the 3rd world “serfs” who aren’t as prone to fight back.
This guy has short man’s disease. He’s clearly jealous of people taller than him which seems to be most of NY.
I think the correct technical term you’re looking for is “carbon fartprint.”
ever thus speaks the serpent. nothing new since Genesis.
I’m in favor of liberals shrinking themselves!
I remember that cartoon joke of this guy raising bonzai trees making him look like a sick minimalist maniac and then screaming about his children not to climb the trees. Back then it was a joke about bonzai people, but now apparently it is an Obama reality.
And we keep these insane people in power as if they were ok.
But this is what we get when we have lawyer gangs holding people hostage and extorting money in exchange for sanity.
