Working The Population-Climate Link
It will be hard indeed to lower the amount of carbon in the atmosphere if the planet's population continues to grow.
Project Drawdown is a coalition of organizations determined to bring greenhouse gases down, through a variety of means.
One of those means is a focus on population growth, and ways to slow the birth rate to a sustainable level, especially in developing countries where resources for large populations of children are scarce.
Alisha Graves centers her work on population issues for Project Drawdown, The Oasis Initiative, and Venture Strategies for Health and Development. She joins us with an overview of those efforts.
