My husband and I did not want kids before because of things like this plus the political climate and a lot of other social issues we don’t agree with. However, life is what you make it and there will always be a lot of bad and a lot of good. If we all die it won’t matter because we’ll all be dead. That’s why I don’t understand why people worry about the world really ending one day. If everyone’s dead who will be here to care or be worried about it? Don’t live life in a “what if” state because that’s not living.  But of course have children for your own reasons not because of someone else’s.

Did you know that according to NASA, the ozone layer is slowly repairing itself and might be healed within our lifetimes? We’re slowly working to make things better, for ourselves and for our descendants. It’s not all bad.

I’ve studied climate change for almost 10 years, and I always worried about overpopulation. However, I decided I wanted one… Okay, that is one… They won’t replace the two of us. Then I wanted a second (still do – we have our first). Okay, that’s pushing the overpopulation problem. However, the economy also can’t keep up with a dying population. There’s A LOT to worry about in this world. If you’re worried about climate change, you can DO something about it. I work hard to make sure I’m doing something about it all the time, and I work hard to make sure my daughter and stepson will know/already know what to do to make things better. If we don’t reproduce, the ones who are concerned about these issues, the next generation will only come from those who aren’t worried.
