I am pleased to see that the recent Climate Teach-Ins drew so much attention. One question: Who is talking about population growth as a driver of climate change? My guess is that it's still too volatile a topic for anyone - politicians, newspapers, even students - to talk about.

The main change that needs to happen on this planet is for our human numbers to be reduced to a sustainable number. That number is a lot less than the 6.7 billion people on the planet today. Let's get real and make population growth the main topic of discussion. To do otherwise is to continue to fool ourselves, and we don't really have the time for that.
