Getting climate, energy & environment news right.

Stop putting people and our planet at odds

Benji Backer writes in The Hill about climate policy that is pro-human.

The C3 Take
  • The global population has reached 8 billion, which has made some people worry that the rising global population will destroy the planet.
  • Populations are increasing because societies are becoming healthier and wealthier, which are both good for the environment.
  • To be durable, climate solutions must be pro-human.
  • The increase in the global population should not be met with fear, but with optimism about the future.

“To put it in simple terms, optimism is what’s missing from the climate dialogue. Flashy headlines decry a climate apocalypse without acknowledging that our world population is growing because more people are surviving into their child-bearing years. That’s good news. Now, we have to work toward solutions that will keep the planet healthy for our growing population.”
