Mad science: Bioengineer humans to tackle climate change

Mad Scientist

Wasn’t there a real evil bloke by the name of Adolf who basically wanted to bioengineer a “superior” pure race?

Looks like to me these stand-up philosophers want to bioengineer a race of Green slaves.

Earlier this week, The Atlantic ran an eye-catching, disturbing interview with a professor of philosophy and bioethics at New York University called S. Matthew Liao. He was invited to discuss a forthcoming paper he has co-authored which will soon be published in the journal Ethics, Policy & Environment.

…Liao explained how his paper – entitled, “Human Engineering and Climate Change” – explored the so-far-ignored subject of how “biomedical modifications of humans” could be used to “mitigate and/or adapt to climate change“. The modifications discussed included:

Giving people drugs to make them have an adverse reaction to eating meat;

Making humans smaller via gene imprinting and “preimplantation genetic diagnosis”;

Lowering birth-rates through “cognitive enhancement”;

Genetically engineering eyesight to work better in the dark to help reduce the need for lighting;

 The “pharmacological enhancement of altruism and empathy” to engender a better “correlation” with environmental problems.

So what’s next, these same stand-up philosophers will demand the children of AGW sceptics be taken away? Insanity, pure Green lead insanity.
