An increasing number of students around the world are vowing not to have children until government steps in and does more about climate change.
18-year-old Canadian Emma Lim launched the initiative that asks students to stop having children until action is taken by the government.
“I pledge not to have children until I am sure my government will ensure a safe future for them,” it states on their website.
“I am not the only young person giving up lifelong dreams because they are unsure of what the future will hold. We’ve read the science, and now we’re pleading with our government. Please, keep us safe. Please act while there is still time,” Lim writes on her website.

In 2016 Carleton University professor Michael Hart argued in his book Hubris that climate change advocacy is based on "poor science" and is being used by the left to force a social agenda on an unsuspecting population.
Per Life Site News:
“I learned that both domestic and international actors had succeeded in using the poorly understood science of climate change to advance an ambitious environmental agenda focused on increasing centralized control over people’s daily lives,” he told LifeSiteNews in an August 2016 interview.
“Left-wing politicians discovered in climate change renewed ways to press their agenda of social and economic justice through coercive government programs. As John Sununu, the former governor of New Hampshire, sees it, ‘The alarmists have learned well from the past. They saw what motivates policymakers is not necessarily just hard science, but a well-orchestrated symphony of effort ... announce a disaster; cherry pick some results; back it up with computer modeling; proclaim a consensus; stifle the opposition; take over the process and control the funding; and roll the policymakers,’” he said.
As of Thursday there were more than 1,000 people registered at Lim's website.
There has been even more media attention on Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden. This week she testified before the U. S. House of Representatives. She even offered some resources to them.
“I am submitting this report as my testimony because I don’t want you to listen to me,” Thunberg said, continuing, “I want you to listen to the scientists. And I want you to unite behind the science. And then I want you to take action.”
