    Lower the birth rate or increase the death rate. If we don't do the first, nature will do the later. In either case population will peak and the decline. If we are able to successfully lower the birth rate the decline can be manageable. If we don't, the decline will be precipitous and the globe will reek of death.

    The good news is that if women have access to education, opportunity, a minimal of resources, and access to birth control they limit family size without coercion. Access to birth control is the most important issue for lowering birth rate.
