“It is very difficult to induce lawmakers to pass laws for the benefit of the unborn who have no votes”

Major Leonard Darwin, speaking at the Second International Eugenics Congress, at the AMNH around September 25, 1921:

“It is very difficult to induce lawmakers to pass laws for the benefit of the unborn who have no votes”

From the same session:

“Dr Davenport said that the study of eugenics must progress until proofs of its contentions are piled high and have impressed the general community, before political action becomes a possibility”

  • Il problema della ricerca scientifica in #Italia è che è gestita da Italiani http://t.co/UdEPloTm #
  • Se Giovanardi fosse pagato dalla Mafia, non potrebbe aiutare la criminalità più di adesso. #droga @alinomilan #
  • Il problema di #Berlusconi è che come un tardo imperatore si circonda di nemici e incapaci. Difficile immaginarsi adesso un cambiamento. #
  • #London employers should celebrate efforts by #southeastern to make people happy to reach their workplaces safe and sound! (and hours late!) #

  • Cannot see anything wrong in "rich" countries leaving the Euro rather than sharing the debt. #Finland would survive and the Euro too. #
  • La soluzione "nucleare" per l'Italia vede il fuoriuscire dall'Euro i "virtuosi" lasciando un'economia mediterranea enorme comandata da Roma. #
  • Only 30% convinced by #IPCC RT @ret_ward: 65% of UK public fairly or very concerned about #climate change: http://t.co/kBUcRnGm #agw #
  • Seven Brits every ten don't think humans are changing the #climate much or at all and still @ret_ward hails that as a success. Unbelievable. in reply to ret_ward #
  • . @ret_ward that's not what the IPCC says. If humans only partly responsible the whole UNFCCC collapses. in reply to ret_ward #
  • . @wxjared @weatherchannel contiguous USA is only 1.6% of the planet (© J Hansen) in reply to wxjared #
  • The story of Standard Oil should show the way on how to deal with banks (and countries) that are "too big to fail". #

  • Renowned French author G Flaubert understood it all in the 1870s http://t.co/aa4KLXdN @GarthGodsman @Revkin @ebertchicago @JuddApatow #agw in reply to GarthGodsman #
  • . @astrolooney science should come before grandstanding statements blaming summer heat in Eastern USA on global warming #
  • . @astrolooney I believe like @Revkin that "#climate change" is a risk management problem + like the #IPCC that we need better tools for it. #
  • Che stupidaggine da Visco @Phastidio . Come un chirurgo che spaventato si rifiuti di tagliare arto in gangrena e poi dica "non è possibile". in reply to Phastidio #
  • Not one UK #climate activist is blaming Eastern USA heatwave on "global warming". Discuss @GarthGodsman @Revkin @ebertchicago @JuddApatow in reply to GarthGodsman #
  • Greenies believe there's a war against the environment. First victim of any war is truth. Greenies lie. QED. @vexnews @ShugNiggurath #agw in reply to vexnews #
  • Monti tuona contro Squinzi mentre Visco fa il ministro di una Banana Republic. Classe dirigente allo sbando. http://t.co/WAvbyk4K #Italia #
  • Your spat with Mann is invisible @Revkin . Perhaps he's deleted his side of it. #
  • . @Revkin Science is being tortured for the warmist cause and you blog about…Michelle Malkin?? Come on Andy show some courage!! #
  • Climate change is measured over many years. 'Journalist' comes from Latin for 'day'. Journalists can't understand climate change. QED #
  • Exactly @RyanMaue – read of when @RogerHarrabin got shouted at by Al Gore (!) http://t.co/9jVilTcD in reply to RyanMaue #
  • Don't you get how damaging the ongoing Lonnie Thompson archiving scandal is to the #agw cause @Revkin @leohickman -well, THAT explains a lot #
  • . @BJGoldsmith @jcrclarksonesq "weird weather" is becoming the last refuge of the policy scoundrel in reply to BJGoldsmith #
  • Has anybody at the BBC written a word linking July heat in the Eastern US to climate change? @adissentient @clim8resistance @barryjwoods #
  • IS THE SOUTH-EAST ENGLAND DROUGHT OVER YET? @BBCr4today #
  • Obviously drought big news at @BBCR4Today but lack-of unreported http://t.co/ebbBIeOs -are we paying a licence fee to compete with Sky News? #
  • Dear @RogerHarrabin when was the last time my licence fee financed something else than a worrisome report about possible disasters? #bbc in reply to RogerHarrabin #
  • Sky News scours the world for bad news of various degrees of fabrication. Is that what sells? Then why would the #BBC compete for same? #

  • Maturità aliena: Alla luce di Gv 18:36, discutere il significato dell'impegno politico della Conferenza Episcopale Italiana. #Italia #
  • Top of #Shard is a practical joke, it's a 'skySCRAPER' after all (ahr ahr ahr) @leohickman @mjhsinclair in reply to leohickman #
  • Plus #Shard shouldn't be looked at just from London. From Biggin Hill, it's like a Manifestation of Might. @leohickman @mjhsinclair in reply to leohickman #
  • If the BBC treated politicians the way they treat climate-hype believers, it'd be the 1950s again @aDissentient @BarryJWoods @leohickman in reply to aDissentient #
  • Anybody complaining about the #Shard should try to imagine how it would have looked had the Brutalists still been in charge… #
  • Tanto sforzo di #Maroni ma con quale obiettivo? Una "Lega dal Volto Umano" vacillerebbe perché intrinsecamente autocontraddittoria. #
  • Contrappasso divinamente geniale: Grillo che si diverte a storpiare i cognomi, si trova come primo sindaco importante tal 'Pizzarotti'. #
  • Given the speed and the bouncing around, I wonder how hot can a tennis ball become, nowadays? #
  • . @chicago_blog mai dare importanza a chi scrive o telefona a #Radio24 @LaZanzaraR24 dimostra che chi lo fa è spesso vicino alla follia. #
  • They call themselves climate hawks, in fact they're just paid prostitutes of the keyboard pontificating about imaginary conspiracies. #agw #
  • Unfathomable how many 2nd Amendment apologists give themselves away to the Government wrt the drug war and death penalty. #tcot #USA #
  • #Melancholia ruined by Lars von Trier himself. It is as if Munch had written several times "Look at the screaming figure!" on "The Scream". #
  • There is no science at all in claiming "I told you so" on #agw because it's warm in July in the USA @Revkin @ebertchicago @juddapatow in reply to Revkin #
  • Especially you @Revkin – is #agw a "risk management challenge", or the pursuing forever of weather disasters??? @ebertchicago @juddapatow #
  • Pontificating about CO2 emissions after every heatwave is just a form of scavenging @Revkin @ebertchicago @juddapatow #agw #

  • Mosca sul naso di Monti. Putin che cerca di intromettersi? #
  • Monti abbandona il taglio delle province. Possibile che uno arrivi a 69 anni per fare la figura dell'idiota? #
  • Genetic and cellular exchanges between mother and foetus mean there will never be such a thing as a 'perfect clone' + every mother a chimera #

  • Ricapitoliamo: 'tagli' solo in bozza, riforma lavoro buona in bozza poi diventata una boiata, aumento IVA posposto di 3 mesi. Che sfacelo! #
  • La #Higgs è la prima particella democratica, esiste solo per chi vuole che esista. La fisica è entrata nel postmoderno. @a_rodighiero in reply to a_rodighiero #

  • Aiuto! @micheleboldrin @CarloStagnaro cos'è una 'economia sociale di mercato' ??? #Monticicrede #
  • The #Higgs announcement was as if one opened the box, and Schrödinger's cat were still maybe alive. Or maybe dead. '5 sigma' alive, perhaps. #

  • Comune di #Alessandria fallisce. La colpa non è "dei politici" ma di tutti i contribuenti locali capaci di intendere e volere @chicago_blog #
  • Prima dicono chissenefrega poi si lamentano delle tasse e infine danno la colpa 'ai politici' guardando la TV. Italiani uguali nei secoli. #
