CNN: If we don't start "having fewer children" a million species will die.

How about no?
CNN is advising that unless Americans have “fewer children,” up to a million species could go extinct.
The network’s advice came while reporting on a United Nations report that predicted human activity will spark mass species extinctions within decades.
CNN spoke with controversial Stanford biologist, Paul Ehrlich, who infamously predicted in the 1960s that overpopulation would result in a mass starvation that would claim hundreds of millions of lives by the 1970s.
“For a species that named itself homo sapiens, the wise man, we’re being incredibly stupid,” Ehlrich told CNN. “The other organisms on the planet are our life support systems. You don’t have to worry about them if you don’t care about eating, if you don’t care about breathing, if you don’t care about having fresh water and so on. Then you can just forget about it and die.”
