climate change
I don't talk about it much, but climate change scares me enough to keep me awake some nights and to make me nauseated when I read articles about it. In the worst moments, I fear that perhaps my child will grow up to inherit a post-civilization, Mad Max-style world. What can I do? I sign petitions, contact my legislators, use public transportation when I can, don't eat meat, recycle assiduously. But it feels useless in the face of Big Oil, the Koch Brothers, climate deniers in Congress, and the rapidly-warming Arctic. And I'm so, so angry about it all.

Re: climate change
Yup. This is certainly not the only reason I don't want kids, but I can't say it doesn't contribute.

Re: climate change
Hardly anonymizing of me to say, but these fears have led me to buy land in the Pacific Northwest (which is, by my standards, benefitting from the deviations in the jet stream that have brought us this winter's horrorshow), where I intend to retire to a homesteading life when my child is beyond school age. Not alone, mind you, so holler if you want in.
