CWN Editor's Note: “Young Chinese people do not want to have children: it costs too much and the state does not help them,” according to the report. “Pregnant Chinese women give birth to 1.3 children each, far from the 2.1 needed to keep the population stable.”

    I am confused. Isn't a reduction in human population what is called for to stem the increase in atmospheric CO2, methane, and other greenhouse gases? According to what I read, China, Europe, and the U.S. are making positive strides in reducing their population growth in alignment with all that is good in the "Green New Deal". If the earth is now overpopulated, you either reduce its human population or expand into colonization of other resource-rich bodies in the solar system provided by God.
