I don't. I don't claim this was a decision influenced by global warming, but it was strongly influenced by global overpopulation, which is, like it or not, the cause of all our climate and resource related problems.
Of course, if the world has limited resources, such as is claimed by some here, then your not having kids opened the door for some illegal immigrant or third world citizen to have kids, and to have a much larger family than you would have had, or your kids would have had, thus making the situation worse, not better, and accelerating the problems of the world in a bad direction.
