Newsflash from the German ShortNews site, which although it claims to be a serious news site, is now apparently in competition with The Onion:07/16/14 ShortNews (Germany) (Google translation + light editing)Genetically alter humans: The last alternative to climate protectionIf it is so hard to stop climate change, why not change the people, in order to slow global warming, at least? Some ideas about it are radical, but the more mankind feels the consequences, the more necessary biomedical modifications will become. Eighteen percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from livestock. Why not induce humans to have an artificial intolerance to meat? A genetic variation for size reduction would be another possibility. A reduction in height by 15 cm means a reduction in mass by 25 percent. Genetic alterations of the human eye to see better in the dark, would reduce power consumption. Chlorophylls in the skin could cover a part of the energy demand by sunlight rather than by food. Shutdown of cell activity at rest would also be an alternative.H/T to Die Kalte Sonne: Climate activists propose genetic modification of humans as steps to reduce CO2 emissions
