SUSTAINABILITY IS NOT HAVING MORE THAN TWO CHILDREN
When a couple has four children, the next generation will be double the previous one. This means that if everyone in the next generation uses only half of what we use now, including vital resources, they will be using the same amount of resources as this generation. Much of what the conservationists suggest we do would be countered by people averaging more than two children.
On the other hand, if people averaged one child, the next generation would be only half the previous one and that would make many of the conservation plans unnecessary. The number of children that parents have is the single largest determining factor in the quality of life for all in the future. Having less children is necessary for a humane, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle.
