Many scientists warn regarding the population time bomb. They advice people to stop giving birth to so many babies in order to stop climate change.
Every day in this world of ours, 350,000 babies are born. This adds to an already growing population. Climate change is only worsened by this addition of more and more human beings on earth.

Reducing the number of babies born each year could be the best way of preventing climate change. The link between climate change and having children can be something of a lively debate.
The essential question is should we be having children in a time of climate change. A small family ethic would be ideal for such troubled times. Also fertility curbing would come in handy in such times.
The threat of climate change is too real to take any chances regarding the carbon footprint we leave behind on earth. Environmentalists have worried themselves sick for many years pondering over the fact that overpopulation means more pollution which means more global warming.
The upcoming crisis suggests that radical steps must be taken to curb climate change by nipping the evil in the bud. Overpopulation is one area that needs focus.
Population engineering has come under a great deal of criticism from many corners of society. One of these is the accusation of overreacting to a normal situation.
The economic argument that the economy will take a slump is another one. Finally there is that fringe group that claims that climate change is a fraud. It is said to be a means of controlling the world’s resources.
Not having children may seem a bit far-fetched but it does have a lot of relevance to climate change. It is not just fear-mongering. A 4 degrees Celsius increase in global temperatures in the future will be catastrophic.
In order to offset such a chance humanity needs to use everything in its tool kit. That includes population control.
The rising sea levels, the weather gone topsy turvy and overall disturbed trends in climatic conditions are all signs of the earth warming up too fast over time.
From 2030 to 2050, 250,000 people will die each year due to climate change, according to DailyMail. The world’s people need to do something about this building crescendo of trouble.
Firstly, environmentalists are not against having babies. They just want people to be a bit more realistic. Also the economy will not fail by having a small family and taking up family planning.
While having fewer children may be a bitter pill to swallow, it is a necessity that must be paid heed to if we are to survive this century as a species.
