Shapiro At ‘Newsweek’: Should We Stop Having Children Because Of Climate Change?

This week, Professor Roy Scranton, who teaches English at the University of Notre Dame, wrote a disturbing piece for the New York Times. In it, he discussed the question of whether people ought to have children thanks to the supposed environmental catastrophe looming on the horizon.

Scranton wrote that he cried when his daughter was born “for sorrow, holding the earth’s newest human and looking out the window with her at the rows of cars in the hospital parking lot, the strip mall across the street, the box stores and drive-throughs and drainage ditches and asphalt and waste fields that had once been oak groves.” Scranton gloomily explained, “My partner and I had, in our selfishness, doomed our daughter to life on a dystopian planet, and I could see no way to shield her from the future.”
