Compulsory birth control is a matter of survival

There is evidence from the World Bank that climate change will particularly threaten the Middle East and North Africa. The population of the area is expected to double by 2050, while crop yields will decline by 30% to 60%.

Governments should introduce compulsory birth control; one child per woman or, if necessary, no births for a few years. It is becoming a matter of survival. I am amazed that the UN doesn’t encourage birth control through grants and aids. Had systematic birth control been universally operated for the past 50 years, we would now have a much more peaceful and contented world.
