Kate Middleton, Prince William advised to stop having more kids by charity

A US-based charity called Having Kids thinks Prince William and Kate Middleton are setting a "bad example" by having more children. "Having smaller families is the single best thing we can do to reduce the damage caused by future climate change," said Anne Green, the organization's executive director.


To have or not to have children is hardly a new question. In the 1960's and 70's Paul Ehrlich captured the public's attention with his warnings about the population bomb.

While Middleton and Willam count down the months until their third child is born, they might enjoy the following related stories:
