Thank you so much for having

Thank you so much for having the courage to address the issue of population. We progressives need to get over our traditional reluctance to discuss it just because a few bad actors use the population issue to bash poor countries. There is no step we can take that is more effective at preserving the environment than reducing the earth's population--gradually, across the board, and in all countries, rich and poor. 1.5 children per couple over a couple generations would do it. It's (pretty much) that simple. As for the economic arguments against such a plan, Weisman does a fine job dispelling them in his book. Thanks again for the courageous and important program.
