Access To Birth Control Could Help Curb Climate Change, Researchers, Policy Experts Say

“…[T]he rising population in Pakistan — and elsewhere around the world — is creating more climate-changing emissions and putting more people in the path of extreme weather, food and water shortages, and other climate change pressures. That suggests that giving more women who want it access to birth control to limit their family size — in both rich and poor countries — could be a hugely effective way to curb climate change and to build greater resilience to its impacts, according to population and climate change researchers and policy experts…” (Goering, 2/3).
