Insane Progressive Headline o' the Day

I'm morally opposed to providing a direct link, but suffice it to say that you can easily find anti-human diatribes typical of the hard left enviro-statist media. A Reuters article ("Contraceptives vital to climate fight") characterizes their aims:

Contraception advice is crucial to poor countries' battle with climate change, and policy makers are failing their people if they continue to shy away from the issue, a leading family planning expert said on Friday.

Leo Bryant, a lead researcher on a World Health Organisation study on population growth and climate change, said the stigma attached to birth control in both developing and developed countries was hindering vital progress.

"We are certainly not advocating that governments should start telling people how many children they can have," said Bryant, an advocacy manager at the family planning group Marie Stopes International, who wrote a commentary in the Lancet medical journal on Friday.

"The ability to choose your family a fundamental human right. But lack of access to family planning means millions of people in developing countries don't have that right," he told Reuters...

Repeat: the "stigma attached to birth control" is "hindering vital progress" in combating global warming or... climate change or... whatever they're calling it these days, now that the Earth is demonstrably cooler than ever.
