Not having children for the climate

Pop star Blythe Pepino came to realise that far-reaching choices are needed to save the climate. Such as not fulfilling your wish to have children.

Pop British singer Blythe Pepino concluded that drastic choices are needed to save the climate. And she didn’t want to avoid them.

She founded ‘BirthStrike’: an organisation for women who consciously choose not to have children, as a response to the climate crisis. The media portrayed her initiative widely, and within two weeks she had almost 150 other women on her side, mainly in Britain.

Blythe does not want to discourage anyone from having children and is not out to condemn people with children. She does want to make it clear that the problem is urgent and that major changes are needed.
