PERTH, December 11, 2007 ( – The Medical Journal of Australia has published a widely-publicized article by a medical professor (Calls Parents of Large Families “Polluters” ) advocating draconian taxation for parents who have more than two children, in order to offset the carbon emissions – requiring the parents to pay an upfront tax of $4,390 USD for each child born after their second child, and up to $700 annually thereafter.

A Crazy idea considering… Australia’s 21 million have a fertility rate below the 2.1 per family replacement level. 

As a consequence, the country faces significant immigration pressure from Asian nations.
