It’s well known that many environmentalist believe there are too many people on the planet. So what happens when their anti-population priorities collide with the environment? Well that’s the ironic situation recently discovered in Colorado, where two biologists found that estrogen from woman on birth control pills and patches is having a devastating impact on local fish populations. According to the Population Research Institute, the biologists found that out of 123 random fish, the normal one to one male-female ratio was seriously disrupted, with 101 being female, only 12 being male, and 10 being such a strange hybrid that their gender could not be determined. With studies in Switzerland confirming the problem, this is one tricky situation for Green leaders.
