But then I've got 5 kids, so I would say that.
You're right, and you are so wrong at the same time.

Yes - 7 billion people are not consuming resources in the same way Western countries are. However, as an educated Westerner with lifestyle expectations, having 5 children who will all consume at a massively higher rate than say someone in India, China, most of Africa is utterly irresponsible if you wish to save the planet's resources.

Now, before you/one goes on to say that China/India have incredibly large resource consumption, just remember where all the goods you/one buys are from... that resource consumption is not for the Chinese / Indians but for materialistic Western countries.

Agreed.
