It’s been a big 24 hours for the pro baby eating community. I’m #humbled and #honored by all the @’s.

But 🐐 satire aside, I want to be clear, believing that having more children, and that population growth in general, is a threat to the world is cynical, stupid and wrong.
Modern day Malthusianism is every bit as silly and dangerous as the original version.

Never forget that Malthus was an anti-vaxxer. He was wrong about just about everything.

You don’t have to be some starry eyed techno optimist to understand that human ingenuity is the answer to dealing with and adapting to climate change.

The greater threat to societal wellbeing is declining population, not overpopulation.
