Couples who have more than two children are putting an ‘irresponsible’ burden on the environment, the Government’s leading green advisor has warned. Jonathon Porritt called on ministers to divert money away from curing illnesses towards contraception and abortion services to limit the country’s population and help in the fight against global warming. And he criticised fellow green campaigners for dodging the issue of population growth and its effect on the environment because it is too ‘controversial’.
