Are you global warming deniers willing to risk being wrong? Leaving a wasteland to your children is way less scary than shrinkage.
Penises are shrinking because of pollution, an environmental scientist has warned in a new book detailing the challenges facing human reproduction.

Dr Shanna Swan writes that humanity is facing an "existential crisis" in fertility rates as a result of phthalates, a chemical used when manufacturing plastics that impacts the hormone-producing endocrine system.

Her book, titled Count Down, examines "how our modern world is threatening sperm counts, altering male and female reproductive development, and imperilling the future of the human race".

Dr Swan's research began by examining phthalate syndrome, something observed in rats which found that when fetuses were exposed to the chemical they were likely to be born with shrunken genitals.

That is interesting research. Frankly a lower fecundity of the human race would be no bad thing. Natural selection will do what it does best. Organisms with a greater tolerance to phthalates will prosper.

It's scary that phthalates are everywhere. One just about always sees an ion at mass 149 somewhere in the chromatogram in the GC-MS analysis of any sample. That indicates the possible presence of a phthalate, which is usually confirmed when one does a mass spectral database search. I always warn people I train to be on the alert for that.

Not seeing much of a downside here.

Mother Nature is a bitch but she does know best. 

P.S. at this age I am not much concerned about the size of my tallywacker.

Nice try, but that's going to change anyone's mind.

It's not shrinking their willy, it's shrinking the willy of developing babies. And because their wiener is fine, why do anything when what you're really saying is that if they wait it out and don't do anything, the average penis size will eventually go down and then they'll finally have an above average sized wanker.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I really have to object your use of the word wanker.
Old Git used say there was no use in objecting to the bastardisation of language, I regard his attitude as defeatist.  If good people had resisted there might not be so much decimation going on these days.
The wanker is he who wanks his willy, the wiener being the wanked party in the exchange.

The wankee?

No.  ::) Oh if you must.
