From The Best Schools: Mad Scientists Then and Now

Flagellum

James Barham, here.

People are too big. If we want to save the planet, we must shrink ourselves.

That’s the message of a recent Atlantic article entitled “How Engineering the Human Body Could Combat Climate Change.”

The piece reports on a proposal—to be published soon in an environmental ethics journal(1)—to meet the challenge of climate change (if such it be), not by transforming the earth and its climate, as some have suggested, but rather by reengineering human beings themselves.

More. Yeah right. How many human beings have ever actually wanted to be shorter? Those of us who need tall hats and six-inch heels to get by socially are far more common.
