Or to save 50 children(who parents would otherwise divorce), you make 1500 other children lives harder(the parents who divorce anyway)?

And also which way does correlation go.

'Are people in poverty more likely to divorce' or 'Are divorced people more likely to end up in poverty'?

Some couples in poverty work two jobs each trying to make ends meet, they never have time to work out the problems that lead to divorce.

There have been many studies done that show that the single biggest predictor of poverty is growing up in a single parent home. Why? Do not know. Do not care. Does not even matter. It just is. So. What now? We fix it. We do things that encourage the rebuilding of the family unit and stop doing things that hurt it. We stop tax punishing people for getting married. Make it easier to raise children in a full family and harder to do it the other way. Single parent households will go down. Children will have 2 parents. Crime reduces and poverty goes down?

And make it even more likely that a child with single parents would be in poverty.

Are you talking about their being no demand for Electricity. if so when you are spewing radioactive waste into the environment (coal power stations) you should stop producing as well.

Or are you talking about their being no demand for solar panels and wind turbines? I think as shown across the world their is demand.

I would also like sources for your birds being killed by wind turbines(wind mills are the ones on farms). I can almost guarantee that all the references will be able to be traced back to one California wind farm.
