I am more pissed off at this premise from the audience (a teacher!) than with #BernieSanders' response
"Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth."
washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
Of course the population has grown! But,
a. #sustainability in the context of #ClimateChange is NOT about sheer numbers of people
b. the growth rate has slowed down. A LOT!
Therefore, discussing #abortion is awful in this context
Take the important #abortion question (pro or anti) to some other context of the human condition. Don't thread that with population growth and sustainability
Do people even care about evidence anymore?

If that teacher and Sanders and others want to worry about #ClimateChange and #Sustainability, which we all should, then they should focus on the real causes like #Carbon, our #consumption, mismanagement of #resources, especially #water
Seriously, #PopulationGrowth?
Enough already!
Are Paul #Ehrlich and others continuing to make money by spinning yarns about this?
Look for the #Trendlines, people, not the #Headlines!
@OurWorldInData Or consider this from @OurWorldInData, via @MaxCRoser
Can somebody send the URL ourworldindata.org to #Sanders, @CNN, that teacher, ... to anybody!
