First the New York Times, now the BBC! Today, Eco Child’s Play’s Kristen Chase and myself were featured on the BBC’s program “World Have Your Say“. The topic was “Would you stop having children to save the environment?” I was invited to join the conversation with John Guillebaud, professor of family planning at University College, London, because of my post “Should We Stop Having Children to Save the Earth?“, and Kristen was invited for a comment she left on my post, before she was a writer on our blog. The BBC asks:
Should the wealthiest in the world stop having kids? Indeed, would it best if we all kept to 1 or 2 per couple? Or does the fail to take into account religion, culture and every person’s right to have as many children as they like?
You can download the podcast (it’s called “Overpopulation”) to the program or listen to it using the BBC’s iplayer.
