After a Good Cry Over the Latest IPCC Report, Global Warming Alarmist Pledges to Quit Flying and Never Have Kids

A voluntary thinning of the future gene pool of potential Gorebots is just alright with me.

A meteorologist who has covered weather for the Wall Street Journal tweeted that he has decided not to have children in order to leave a lighter carbon footprint, and is considering having a vasectomy.

He also vowed to stop flying after the world’s recent climate-change report made him cry.

Eric Holthaus was reacting to the findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which released a report on Friday that found it was ‘extremely likely’ that humans are causing warming trends seen in the last several decades.

On Friday afternoon the weatherman tweeted: ‘No children, happy to go extinct, which in and of itself, carries a certain sadness. #IPCC’

His next tweet said: ‘Its a very emotional decision. Mixed feelings. adios babies?’

If he wept because of a climate change report the chances are his testosterone level is too low to father children anyway.
