Disagreements about having children

I am from an Asian family where the expectation is to have children but I am not sure I want to for a variety of reasons. My parents constantly tell me that I will regret it if I don't have kids.

Climate change will make life harder for future generations and the world is likely to have more competition over food and water, economic unrest and more natural disasters such as the recent bushfires. It will also be a lot harder to buy a home with many young people in our generation not able to enter the housing market. Whilst it is difficult to predict the future for certain it seems as though life will be more challenging for the next generation, and I wouldn't want to bring a child into the world knowing what is going to happen.

What should I do?
