Population and Enivornmentalism

Larry comments that we never talk about overpopulation with respect to environmentalism. He's right that overpopulation is a big deal. Personally, I tie this in with birth control and sex-education. We know from experience that this isn't just about birth control, but about education and oppression-- undeveloped countries in which women are given serious options in their lives (something that comes with education) tend to have lower birth rates than those in which they're given no real options.
