Reduce Your Quiver

The Duggar family, stars of the TLC program 18 Kids and Counting, are under scrutiny because of all those children (they are expecting a 19th) and their environmental impact:

According to recent research, having lots of kids may have a much bigger impact on the environment than previously thought.

Here’s why: Oregon State University researchers say that if you’re serious about reducing your carbon footprint, the best way to do it is to have one less child. They claim the effect is almost 20 times greater than recycling, driving a high-mileage car, or using energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs over your entire lifetime.

So by the mathematical logic by the clowns in Corvallis, if the Duggars planned to have 26 kids, then they should do their part and have 25 instead. Problem solved!
