What about the Environmental Kuznets Curve? Will that affect China and then India in the future?

The Kuznets curve is a model, so by definition it will have no effect.
And that is leaving aside the considerable doubts that the phenomenon it purports to describes is valid.

The calculation figures the probability that each offspring may also reproduce — potentially expanding an individual's carbon footprint for decades after they die.

Then it should also figure the probability that each of those offsprings's children will also reproduce...ad infinitum, so that the carbon contribution of having a child is millions of times greater than not having a child.

that thought goes into the right direction, no further details would be TLTR but
procreation for the sake of procreation is animalic and soonder or later procreation
will be done with meaningful purpose and wisdom while the current majority will
protest to see there "human" in fact "animalic" rights taken from them.

one fact ist that the lower the level of a creature the higher the procreation rate is.
i don't dare to giving this fact a ultimate value but of course have an opition on the matte ;)

Ocean Preservation Society board member Leilani Munter describes her choice to go childless.

"J'ai décidé de ne pas d'avoir d'enfant pour préserver le futur de notre planète."

Ce choix, @LeilaniMunter l'a fait il y a 25 ans. Aujourd'hui, face aux crises environnementales, elle est plus que jamais convaincue d'avoir pris la bonne décision.

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
