And for the 11,000+ deaths caused by the Heat wave...is that what happens when a civilisation is hit with an uncanny and very odd weather pattern caused by Global Warming?

As per the thread topic. What's wrong with paying people to have kids? If the economy prevents them from having to raise them, and hardly an financial help, then that country will not have a sufficient nuber of people to employ in the next generations. It's a helpful incentive, IMHO.

The problem I have with the government paying people to have kids is I do not believe it is right to take money from other people in order for someone else to have kids.
Frankly, I do not want to pay for anyones kids but my own (when I have them).
Why should 1 cent of my money go to someone else for their kid? I work and make money for ME, not for someone else. It is not the governments place to take from me (or you) to give to someone else.
