An investigation by Voice of London has revealed that climate change is becoming a more important factor behind the decision of some people not to have children. Even though the discussion around Global Warming has increased significantly in recent times, the effort we - as human race - are putting to tackle it is mostly inappropriate, as recent studies show. The World Meteorological Organization has recently claimed that “2018 is on course to be the 4th warmest year on record. This would mean that the past four years – 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 – are also the four warmest years in the series.” A group of 13 US governmental agencies led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published a study last month warning on the effect that climate change may have on the
