Short History of the End of the World I

Forget global warming. Do a straight-line projection of these two trends, and a really science-fictional future looms....

One leading Canadian news outlet reports that funeral home business is way down -- people just aren't dying like they used to.

The other major news outlet notes that boys are not being born, and if they are, they are disfunctional (even more than normally) -- something to do with all the stuff in the environment?
