11:22 pm
on raising a family but amid increasing severe weather events many people are deciding not to have children mainly due to climate change supporters of groups such as birth strike and conceivable future are limiting the number of children they have in the absence of immediate and effective global action to tackle the climate emergency un warns we only have until 2030 to keep global warming below a point where entire ecosystems will be lost but that task is complicated by rising carbon emissions from a global population that will hit nearly 10000000000 by 2050 for a deeper look at this ash saunders joins us from new york she is a writer and activist was chosen not to have children juge the impact of climate change also in new york is amy blackstone she is a sociology professor and author of childfree by choice a study of the wider child free movement and completing our line up from new york shall arise if he she is chief of research and data at un with me which advocates for. gender equality and women's empowerment have what it's good to have
11:23 pm
a hey in the stream let us start with our community because of course this is a debate and it's a heated one people have very staunch ideas about where they fall on it so i want to play a video comment from one such person this is carl law she is a student and an activist a climate activist in texas and here's what she told the story according to the new republic we only have 12 years before we can reverse the effects of climate change before we experience severity of the damages that it can truly cause on us earth everything. because of this i truly discourage having kids right now because you don't know the outcome our earth is our home and that's all we have we have one planet and we are not moving to mars we have to stop procrastinating because seriously this is life or death. life or
11:24 pm
death is that how you see it you know those those words are really scary but yes that is how i see it you know as you said the un has told us we have 10 years to basically turn our entire economic and political systems around and what's at stake is really human survival we don't right now we are headed towards a $3.00 degree warming world and the consequences about our honestly unimaginable we have to stay under 1.5 degrees to survive and for me that me that means that we all need to take a hard look at all of our choices and all of our ways that we're involved politically and economically and socially so that we can actually be part of protecting the planet rather than destroying it ash when people ask you when you having children you don't have much time left what else will they say to you where they inquiring about your family and why your family isn't because. well so i was raised very religiously and my whole life i was told that like it was my destiny to
11:25 pm
have a child that i would absolutely be having children and that was my role to be a mother and so i've gotten that question a lot throughout my life and what i try to tell people is that i think that the best thing that i can do for the planet right now is to not have children to try to not contribute to increasing runaway global carbon emissions and to spend the time that i have here doing activism to try to create the kind of change that we need on a national and global level level to make sure that the humans who do exist right now can lead safe and happy lives and have a little future and you are not alone i want to share this commentary from twitter this is melissa who says when i was 10 in the eighty's i decided it was too risky to have children i helped to raise my nieces and nephews but have stood by my decision despite loads of pressure from them and strangers she goes on to say even
11:26 pm
in the ninety's we knew we were headed for a crisis i didn't see people taking it terribly seriously i couldn't in good conscious commit a human to that future to thousands and beyond i just covered how adding humans in the us really puts environmental pressure on other nations amy what would you say to mr can you relate. well i can and her comments resemble those of many of the people that i've interviewed over the course of my 11 years of research on this topic i also think that more and more people are making the choice not to have children for environmental reasons when you look at research from the seventy's and eighty's the environment certainly was an important reason even then but it did it really showed up in the in the top 5 reasons but more and more people today are talking about opting out of it because of their concerns related to over . it i have to bring in sharra haitham un women shar let me show you
11:27 pm
a couple of the organizations that we've been researching over the last couple of days and i'm sure you come across them but for our audience as well population matus conceivable future. strike and also so many more organizations out there who are connecting fertility having children with what is happening in our environment what is happening with that climate you study the data you look which means of family life of around the globe what do you make of this connection that he's being made. well i think it was really good to hear the other panelists and i do want to add a kind of global perspective on this i think we have to be quite careful in the way in which we are connecting issues around population dynamics choices women's choices reproductive justice reproductive choice and then climate change i want to
11:28 pm
say a little bit about each of these based on the research on the mark that we have done that you and women in particular in the report that we just launched about a month ago a crocus of the once women families and changing the art 1st of all what we do know is that what you lation dynamics population growth we are in a different world now than we were 20 years ago took over to the teammate's have almost been cut in half and we have a total global her to write. about $2.00 live births per woman which is nearly half of what it was in the 1970 s. and the population is actually population growth is going we're facing her to teammates that are below replacement rate in many parts of the world in western europe north america in many parts of asia in many parts of latin america and the caribbean so that's kind of the picture that we have we have declining or to be everywhere now i think it's important to look at her to tea but also look at
11:29 pm
reproductive choice and that was really an important moment in women's movements when in cairo in international conference in population development the issue of reproductive rights was put ahead of population dynamics and i think we really have to respect the choices that women make that women and men make and the enabling conditions for those choices now in some parts of the ark where fertility rates are still very high even though they're declining in some parts of africa and particular reproductive choice is not there for all women there's very little access to family planning services and there are constraints. social constraints cultural constraints on women being able to have the number of children that they would like to have but i would also like to point out in many parts of the world where every house below replacement for to eat right and i would name some countries in austria germany portugal women are not having the number of children
11:30 pm
they would like to her they're having fewer children because of another direction of gender inequality which is care services are not there and men are not doing their share of carrot or in the home they're not sharing the housework the childcare work so women are also not really able to exercise the kind of choices they would like to have in terms of number of children shower if i might if if i may i can see that amy is listening to you so any you've made a sacrifice you've decided you're not going to have children shara there is telling you that there is there are many places around the well where the fertility rate is fair enough so is a sacrifice that you'll make and is that warranted bearing in mind that the rates have gone down. i would say that for myself i don't consider my choice to be a sacrifice it is a choice that i made and i'm lucky to live in a time in a place where i was able to make that choice for myself but i also totally
11:31 pm
agree that there are there is the issue in some nations in the us included where people may be having fewer children than they would choose to because they're not getting the support they need as parents so that is another side of the coin in. all of these. and i want to add in just another wrench into this because as i mentioned there are kind of fierce opinions on both sides so here is one of those sides a couple of people mentioned this point and i'll share just a few of them as we overproduce by like 60 percent globally saying don't have babies to save the planet is just as silly as getting on a high horse about straws so else rights and we also mostly have more than enough resources than we need per person overpopulation is a baloney argument it's about the massive an even distribution waste unsustainable production methinks methods etc etc so several people saying it's not really about
11:32 pm
overpopulation it's about the resources that are not being shared fairly ash what would you say to people like this. i think it's really important to consider both reproductive justice and also making sure that we use resources available in the world for the world population but the reason that i have decided to not have more kids because of climate change is because we are in a crisis and even if we followed the elements of the paris climate accords twit t. we would still be over $1.00 degrees warming which is what you know the u.n. and other scientific groups has said is the what we have to say under for human survival essentially and so we have to do with a look at every tool in the toolbox and we have to figure other ways that we can cut emissions responsibly and ethically and i think as a woman you know an affluent white woman in the united states one of the ways i think i can do that is by having this conversation about how many humans we bring into the world in the amount of amount of resources that people like myself consume
11:33 pm
but i also think that getting under 1.5 degrees we're not doing it fast enough everything that we can do we could do and that would still not be enough and would rely on technology that we don't have yet and also would rely on world governments agreeing which is not going very well so we need that to happen but we also need to figure out more nimble ways to have change on a cultural and an individual level that we can use to then push for more dramatic structural and political change so i think one thing is that you know i someone like me saying i'm not going to have a baby that starts a conversation about how bad the crisis must be for people to be considering not doing some things that is a pretty much fundamental part of being a wife for a lot of people i so i think what you say i hear you saying and it makes an awful lot of sense. i feel so many people want what you say i don't want to say that i just might not have we want to have a family that what you're saying to me sounds like you're standing up and giving
11:34 pm
a speech but there are so many people who just want to have what have a family don't have kids or what have kids like them how do you have that conversation with them because i feel your pain and they just want to have kits. right i think that a really important question and i would say for one thing you don't have to have 0 kids that a lot of studies have shown that if people had just point 5 fewer children we would that would take you know 5000000000 tons of carbon out of the honest but actually if you talk to me like somebody just wants a baby you're talking to me like a politician right. i want to have a couple of can't. i really understand the desire honestly and i think that it desired a lot of people have i think that you can still choose to have a kid and i would just say that i just have one now i just have one and yes how did i end on you know our impact on the planet i think it's easier to make a choice you know how one kid instead of several and making that be your
11:35 pm
contribution to stopping climate change you know argument to me as they have that have a baby don't have many babies right. char i want to bring in another voice to this conversation this is josephine we've got a video coming from her she's an activist with conceivable future and here's her take for anyone considering starting family in the coming decade we do so under the shadow of the fossil fuel industry as carbon emissions rise we've been told to focus on reducing our own individual carbon footprints that includes our reproductive decisions but when we look down at our feet instead of up at the beach or polluters we miss the bigger questions why is it so frightening to plan a family today and why is it so carbon intensive to have an american child in the 1st place whether or not to have a child is a personal decision with lifelong effects but it's not inherently political
11:36 pm
political action is demanding our rights to make reproductive decisions free from massive avoidable government support that harm. so sheriff she seems to be saying this onus is being placed on people's individual choices when really it should be placed in corporations but keeping that in mind before you answer i want to share this from allison on twitter who says it is often those from developing nations suffering the most consequences of climate change and those in wealthy nations who contributed the most to it the population argument often leads to those from wealthy nations then pointing fingers at poor nations so just suppose as well with that video comment from josephine who says it is these corporations but as this tweeter mentions it's corporations and wealthy nations do you see this is an unfair debate. no i think i would totally agree with what alison just said 1st of all are absolutely i mean when we link population and climate change and by mental dynamics that blame is always put on the poor countries because i write so
11:37 pm
high rates of fertility but actually we know that the poor countries have contributed the least to the climate crisis that we currently have and also it's the rich countries and the rich within the rich countries that have contributed most and the corporations and the kind of production and consumption patterns that we have and that's what needs to change and for that to change you know we need to shift from energy systems that are polluting to clean energy systems we need to shift from if it's about individual choice from using cars to use in clean public transport and we need to push our governments to put in place policies and regulations that regulate industries regulate the polluters and that make them pays pay and tax them and change the prices and systems of subsidies that we have and i think the population dynamic question and having children when that's brought into question it can very easily slip in the hands of those who want to blame and shame into becoming a blame game and pointing to oh yes you know it's those people who have too many
11:38 pm
babies and that really gets the story at the wrong end and really misses the point because those countries are not the ones who are polluting and change that needs to happen needs to happen in the richer countries in the very dynamic economies that are having high rates of g.d.p. at the moment and with respect to the corporations that have had a huge role to play in the crisis that now is on our hands so i would totally agree with the comments that you just cited. i want to share this with you it's a graphic from the guardian and they were talking about being childfree thing having fewer children and maybe what the costs like being thames of c o 2 the cost to the environment say some of the things that you can do that will save you. 2 you can have come free you can avoid one transatlantic flight by green energy these are things that actually save a lot of c o 2 doesn't save so much c o 2 is upgrading your light bulbs recycling
11:39 pm
hanging out your clothes to dry in the natural they smell just when you do that who does that anymore and then one in the middle what can you do that space of most amount of c o 2 having fewer children ashta you feel vindicated right here. i think yes having your children is a critical component. pronged attack on climate change i agree with. the viewer who talked about corporate power i've spent a lot of my life biting against you know people in charge who make this economy and this world run on oil i think that's critical and essential i think that having one fewer child though is like i said a choice you can make one time instead of having a kid and then thinking 24 hours of your day has to be focused on oh should i make sure to not use plastic should i make sure to watch your should i make sure to do this and that that can take up all of your time and actually divert from taking meaningful political action so i think it's actually easier to say i'm going to have one fewer kid or maybe just one kid and i'm going to spend that extra time
11:40 pm
actually fighting for bigger changes that we absolutely need to have so yes i think that graphic is a really important way of showing that you can make one powerful decision that has a huge impact especially if you're a wealthy person living in the global north and that you can do that once and then have a huge impact it with the rest of your life as well so i actually just got a comment from guadalupe on you tube she's watching live and she writes in about the paris climate agreement which of course you mentioned at the very top of the show but she says what is the end goal before your gas feel comfortable having kids how would you answer that. for me i would like to see i would like to live in a world where our global leaders do it things that allow us to survive so i would like to live in a world where i thought i would think that i could have a child who could grow happy who could believe in her future and who wouldn't be anything massive extinction rates with and and and food crises and air pollution
11:41 pm
and all of the different things that kids face right now when they're born into the world so when global leaders take accountability and say the survival of our children is worth their time i think that's what i would feel comfortable having children when it is happening from their movements that are saying ok let's look at climate change let's look at our resources that look at where we are and how many people there are in the world with things like doing is raising awareness i have to show you this little clip from population a matter is and this came where they just asked ordinary people how much do you think you use in terms of resources how to look at the response that's a. start with how much of the world's resources do you think you needed to keep the human world going right now. never really thought about it. 40 percent 60 percent i can give you. don't have any idea. ready
11:42 pm
ready just. using. the air so that's crazy ready. really i think my lifetime. i mean would you think the end goal is of these movements the strains in the global north people are saying i think that if you had kids i might have what i might have known because i'm really worried about the well that i'm sending them out into. well i think the end goal for the movement that i study which is who are making the child free choice is that everybody has the right in the opportunity to make the choice for their families that is right for them and in the case of the people that i have studied that is to not become parents so the end goal really would be around every choice. so i want to bring in
11:43 pm
a male voice into this he's a bioethicist actually this is jake from washington d.c. and here's what he told us there's a number of things that can be done to encourage people to have fewer children that don't involve coersion states and n.g.o.s can promote women's rights when women have access to high quality health care jobs and education they tend to choose to have fewer children organizations can also fund media that promote small family values emphasizing that having fewer children is more environmentally responsible and has other benefits as well and finally states can change the incentives that they have in place for having more children such as reducing unnecessary tax incentives for people with higher incomes. shara their thoughts. well i think he was right in that in context when you have had women have more choices they could have more rights they exercise their rights we have seen lower rights opportunities but as i pointed out there are many countries also where women are
11:44 pm
having fewer children than they would like to and they need a changing system not only in terms of policies and governments providing better childcare services but also a change in families men doing more of the care work sharing more not that work and that choice is to be realized in our in terms of number of children they would like to have i think that also has to be respected women who are having fewer children that they would like to and who need a different system by way of family systems men's responsibilities and policies in terms of provision of childcare services changed working hours to enable them to exercise their choice and have a number of children they would like to have and that's a very valid choice which needs to be respected and supported let me just remind you that is the research director the lead research the matter all of this from u.n. women families in a changing world so when we were asking and thinking about what do you women want shara brings that voice from the data from around the globe ash.
11:45 pm
if people watching this and they are not quite convinced yet that having fewer children might really help the environment well to last till you want to give them leave them with i would say that more people consuming more equals more missions and i would say that you know having a child can increase your missions by 6 times you saw that guardian graph you can make one wind choice that will have a huge impact and start a bigger conversation about the climate crisis and how we can all get involved to make bigger changes that we need to see. i want to end with this because i think it's a really great way to wrap up this conversation from someone on twitter who says i feel that young people need to be educated on the matter and be given the head space to make a decision that they find conclusive ash amy thank you so much from packing this topic for us i'm sure there will be much more conversation online but for now i'm going to say thank you so much you know and i at algeciras dot com forward slash

rational pathways to solve regional issues of nona cyril mahler is a senior lecturer in international relations at the department of war studies at king's college in london joins us from london now good to have you with us if we could talk a little bit about the broader sort of geo political picture here 1st of all we know that the u.s. india position has been evolving over the last recent years how is that impacted the whole kashmir dynamic. well one of the things that i think came 1st was the really remarkable statement by donald trump and when him on hahn and senior military commanders from pakistan visited washington that trump would. offer to mediate the dispute between india and pakistan which of course goes against a very very well settled. position of india is that this is firstly
12:00 am
a domestic and secondly a bilateral issue. so one of the things that we have seen more recently is that. the u.s. strained relationship to pakistan and an increasingly warm relationship to india has reversed during the trumpet ministration especially since donald trump has been moving towards. greater trade tariff and trade barriers with india more recently so i don't expect that that is actually going to change the dynamic of the issue but it does actually complicated.
