Overall, advancing the rights of women and girls is one of the most powerful solutions to our greatest environmental and social crises!
Falling birth rates, a goal to be pursued, is being painted as a fearsome prospect to be fought, lest our populations stop ballooning *decades from now* and start shrinking back (shock, horror) towards a size slightly more compatible with the longer-term survival of civilization.

That is a fiction, I'm afraid. Energy, shelter, food, waste assimilation, fresh water, healthy fertile soil, plenty of habitat for other species.
