The points made here are true and important, but don't mention what is in my view the biggest *positive* reason for environmentally conscious people to have children: guiding the future.

Children tend to broadly take on the beliefs of their parents, and not having children because of the environment, even on the pessimistic scenarios, is winning the battle to lose the war; if future generations are exclusively peopled by sub-cultures that don't care about the environment, the outlook for that future is grim.
