3rd Millennia Ants and Grasshoppers

Ant: According to just released projections from the United Nations, the human race is expected to swell from the current 6.5 billion to 9.1 billion people by 2050 -- which is less than 50 years from now! Surely this means it's planetary life and death to practice birth control.

Grasshopper: Well, but you can't believe the United Nations, can you? Let's face it, they're mostly foreigners, Buddhists, and pagans. Anyway, Armageddon is just around the corner, so who cares about the population explosion? Here, you can read all about it in this pamphlet.

Ant: But the vast majority of human beings aren't fundamentalists and they love the Earth and want their children to HAVE a future.

Grasshopper: What can I say? Practice abstinence and try to get lifted up on Last Days.

Ant: What about this? The world's biggest study of climate change now warns that global warming may well be twice as catastrophic as previously thought. This new study, in the journal Nature, was done using the spare computing time of 95,000 people from 150 countries.

Grasshopper: You don't get it do you? Who cares what "science" says about anything. Besides, I don't think I should be talking to ants.

Ant: But environmental murder can actually be stopped! The Kyoto treaty, for example, would help us to save the planet. Aren't you interested?

Grasshopper: (yawn) You shouldn't be so concerned about things. It's more fun to swarm -- then you can't even hear yourself think.
