The single most effective restraint on the rate of population growth is;

1) guarantee education for women and girls
2) guaranteed economic opportunity for women.

This is based partially on results seen in rich countries where this effect has happened naturally.

This is integral to the climate change debate domestically and internationally. In the US it's critical to slow or reverse population growth because our carbon footprint is 4x larger per capita than the rest of the world.

This is not a Malthusian myth. It's thermodynamics.

Give women control of their bodies and fate and the effects have only been positive.
