Connections: Should you not have kids because of climate change?

Writing for The Intelligencer, journalist David Wallace Wells poses some questions for parents and prospective parents: whether it’s moral to reproduce in this climate; whether it’s responsible to have children; whether it is fair to the planet or, perhaps more important, to the children. He's talking about the impact of climate change on the psyche of parents, and whether a growing number of couples is deciding not to have children at all based on the direction of our civilization.

It's a heavy subject, and our guests weigh in:
