Pure Environmentalist Evil

This is pure evil: Planet Slayer’s Greenhouse Calculator. You answer a few questions, then click on an icon of a skull and crossbones to “find out at what age you should die at so you don’t so that you don’t use more than your fair share of earth’s resources.” In my case, I should have died 30 years ago, at the ripe old age of 3 years, based on very average consumption.

This delightful little application sits on the web site of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. And best of all, it’s aimed at kids. So little 7 year old Susie can find out that — due to nothing but the choices of her parents — she deserved to die years ago because she’s already used up more than her “fair share of earth’s resources.”
