Going Mad: I refuse to have another baby, then

Oh my, we're all going to die! We have to stop everything and save the planet!

So it's okay to eat eggs, then? Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor running to succeed Jerry Brown, was nearly an hour into his town hall meeting late Wednesday when someone asked about protecting the planet. “I was the guy who brought you the plastic bag ban in San Francisco. You thought gay marriage was controversial. We required composting in San Francisco. They had garbage police out there checking in my cans to make sure the egg shells were in the appropriate bin.”

Stay in the shade, then. Extreme heatwaves that kill even healthy people within hours will strike parts of the Indian subcontinent unless global carbon emissions are cut sharply and soon, according to new research.

Don't chase cars, then. When it comes to global warming, Fido and Fluffy are part of the problem, a new study by UCLA indicates. As the threat of global warming increases, environmentally conscious pet lovers may need to make some tough choices, according to the study. Pet ownership in the United States creates about 64 million tons of carbon dioxide a year. That's the equivalent of driving 13.6 million cars for a year.

Sit on the other side of the room, then. This will be an unpopular idea, but if everyone ate beans instead of beef the U.S could almost meet climate goals.

Turn off some lights, then. Al Gore's home devours 34 times more electricity than the average U.S. household.

Get them some counseling, then. A new study claims every degree of temperature above 20C increase the likelihood an Indian farmer will commit suicide.

Buy a boat, then. James Hansen and a team of climate scientists had identified a newly important feedback mechanism off the coast of Antarctica that suggests mean sea levels could rise 10 times faster than previously predicted: 10 feet by 2065.

Fewer diapers to change, then. A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that the biggest way to reduce climate change is to have fewer children. The study concludes that four high-impact ways to reduce CO2 gas emissions include having fewer children, living without a car, avoiding airplane travel and eating a vegetarian diet.
