I want to thank Martinique Davis for her thoughtful letter regarding Population Growth in the May 13 paper. Most larger families are not even aware of the correlation between their family size and the environment. Many of us didn't think about these things when we started families many years ago (for the older crowd). It's nice to have a young mother express her questions about having a family at all at this time. I would just hope that all the families in the world will try to reduce their carbon footprint as much as they can (especially larger families). And, thank you for putting a new thought into some younger couples’ minds about the true cost of having a family on the environment.
