Overpopulation problem key to tackling climate change

In all the rhetoric about climate change, there is one huge piece missing: population. Our planet is suffering from overpopulation, greed and exploitation of its resources.

The earth’s resources and wealth are more and more in the hands of fewer people.

I was born in 1942 when the population of the planet was just over two billion people. Today in 2019, it is 7.7 billion.

A huge number of the world’s population suffer from malnutrition and poverty.

I feel the best way to address this issue is to give all women control of their bodies. Make birth control easy to use in all circumstances.
