RE: Could better family planning help slow the effects of climate change?
Climate change is due to many causes; not just temperature (though the cooling effect of the melting ice caps might give the sceptics more encouragement). Population increase is the main factor. In Australia we are running out of water and many of the river systems are dying. More people more demand on resources. Its simple really (yes I class myself as one of morons who believe population control will be necessary) - just look at the NASA picture of the nightsky. Imagine this coverage doubled by the year 2050. Imagine the ncreased demand, land clearing, and of course outputs. Nope - as someone said, not rocket science.
