Why doesn't anybody talk about overpopulation? Isn't it obvious that there are way too many people on this planet? Isn't it clear that population control is essential for dealing with climate change? I mean really, people.

survive and reproduce

Now there is some study claiming that the best thing people can do for the enviroment is not to have children:

No, it depends who the people are. The kind of people who care about the environment are precisely the people who should be reproducing-- the intelligent, educated people, rather than the religious fanatics and the welfare idiots. We are in a demographic race with those two groups, and it is a race we are losing.

authoritarianism

Given the direct connection between overpopulation and climate change (and environmental degradation in general), I'm beginning to think that some kind of authoritarian regime might be required to bring about the necessary policy changes. Certainly Trump's withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris Accord indicates that a democratic system may not be up to the task-- at least not our democratic system.
