According to researcher Shanna Shawn, phthalates cause small penises, and affect fertility.

Air pollution affects both men and women, affecting both egg and sperm production, and likelihood of carrying the baby to term.  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/feb/17/air-pollution-significantly-raises-risk-of-infertility-study-finds

And the affects of electronic devices on sperm:. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7727890/

Gilead seems even less unlikely, but at least explains why there are no cell phones in the show.

Good thing I had my kids early.

Really ?  I never really enjoyed morning sex.  I need coffee before I do anything energetic or erotic :D

BACK ON TOPIC

https://www.ted.com/talks/stephanie_kelton_the_big_myth_of_government_deficits?utm_campaign=tedspread&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=tedcomshare

Stephanie Kelton talks MMT and sounds suspiciously more like a politician than an economist ?

About 1/2 way through this.  Watch and you will get smarter with each minute.

A fine primer on how common people and even experts repeat and build policy on misconceptions and falsehoods.

Maybe it's a more general growing lack of faith and very low expectations that are causing more people to tune out.

Take COP26 for example. The vast majority of us expect nothing to come out it and have concluded that we're too late. We should have been acting on this decades ago. Of course we would have needed to work on our governance for decades before that.
