Save the Polar Bear in Your Bedroom

It’s been a great night. Romantic dinner for two. Fine organic wine. A little dancing in the living room. John Klemmer’s saxophone is putting you in the mood. It’s the right time of the night…for making love. Good thing you have the right tool in your hands to save the polar bear – an endangered species condom.

Scientists estimate that 25 years ago our population and consumption levels began to exceed Earth’s capacity to sustain us. Yet for years it’s been politically incorrect to suggest we humans ought to put a lid on our impulse to reproduce. So incorrect, in fact, that many environmental organizations have been unwilling to admit human population growth is a major contributor to the environmental devastation they’re fighting. Most groups settle for just slowing down the rate of destruction, for fear that campaigning for responsible population policies would limit membership or funding.

So I was impressed when the Center for Biological Diversity came up with Endangered Species Condoms (for use by humans!). Here is an environmental organization that dares to tell the truth about the causes of species extinction. I enthusiastically volunteered to pass out the condoms, and I’d like to share my adventures with you in this video.

There are two profound reasons we should all care deeply about this issue. One is, of course, that all species have a right to coexist with us on the planet. The second is that Earth’s ecosystems are our life support. We need a healthy, diverse abundance of plant and animal life in order to survive and thrive.

The Center’s endangered species condoms have been such a big hit, they’ve had to order another run. So it’s not too late. You can still volunteer to help spread the word about the correlation between unsustainable human population growth and the decline and extinction of many species.
