The Breeder's Dilemma

Can you call yourself an environmentalist and still have kids?
Summary: 

Our decision to start a family didn’t come down to anything resembling the cold calculus of a greenhouse gas inventory (though we did make a spreadsheet with columns for pro and con). It was more a decision from our heart than our head about whether to bring another U.S. consumer into a world possibly dipping its toe into the sixth Great Extinction. And consume he will. Americans are some of the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in the world, and compared to most of our brethren around the world we look like Gullivers in the land of the Lilliputian, emissions-wise. As much as my wife and I have done to reduce our daily impact on the planet, I just guaranteed the perpetuation of that impact for generations to come. Is this my parting gift?

Is it time to be philosophical about climate change?

When In Greece...
Blog

With apologies to another ancient Mediterranean civilization, is it useful -- when in Greece – to do as the Greeks might have when it comes to addressing climate change? In other words, with a crisis that demands such urgent and widespread human action, do we have time to be philosophical?
