That's true in the US, but as the other poster pointed out, it is the developing world where the effort needs to be focused.

 

According to the UN, population growth in the US is 0.71% annually, ranking 131st in the world, and a pittance compared with countries such as Bahrain (4.26), Oman (4.08), Niger (3.81) .... and even the big ones like Congo (3.22), Nigeria (2.58), Cameroon (2.56), Pakistan (1.91) and Egypt (1.87).

 

It seems from the science that there is a strong inverse correlation between how much education a woman receives and how many children she has, but I expect it's a tough problem bringing education for females into some of those countries.

 

Political left v political right isn't the problem - or the solution.

Have a read up on the amount of money being cut from international aid for these education programs.

 

Take a look at the calls to cut international aid to health and education programs and also the arguments made (that you have just used) that education and health care is an essential means of reducing population growth and poverty.

 

It’s not just cutting cash out of international aid, the reduction in aid also reduces the political influence to encourage receiving nations themselves promoting education and health care as a means to reduce population growth.

I have to say watching these so called activist reminds me as a young man/boy, serving at Grenham Comman. Getting bags of crap thrown at you, getting spat at through the fence and a bunch of 'lay abouts' who seemed to stay weeks on end shouting abuse at you. How could they afford it was my question.  I see some of them are now politicians. Says it all really.

 

I wonder how many have mobile phones. Wouldn't that be a better and more objective demonstration against global warming and the lengths companies go, to stop using them. I guess it is selective.

Yes, but objectivity, rationality and self-awareness are notably absent in these activist groups.

 

To them, it's all about their feelings. If it feels right, then it must be right, facts notwithstanding.

It's the goal that matters, by trying for zero one could get a large reduction. These protests need to be world wide, only the young can do it, the pillars of society are too entrenched, too corrupt and aren't interested in anything beyond their own profit and comfort. These protests are going to have to get violent before anything changes, radical changes need radical methods, there have been enough warnings and enough talking.

Sure, theyre  all  gonna  junk their cars laptops  electricity use, cheap food  clothes, air  travel, it aint gonna  happen, thankfully.

Meanwhile the co founder of Greenpeace claims global warming is natural and not man made, who do you believe?

None of them.

You completely deflected my post. I was talking about paying to educate women in poor countries, not right wing policies.

If you want to talk about right wing policies, don't quote my post.

The poster was correct in raising current right wing politics which lean heavily to reducing foreign aid, thereby reducing health education and services in aid recipient countries.
