Environmental Group Breaks the Silence on Population Control
Major American environmental groups have dodged the subject of  population control for decades, wary of getting caught up in the  bruising politics of reproductive health. 
Yet, virtually alone, the Center for Biological Diversity is breaking the taboo by directly tying population growth to environmental problems through efforts like giving away condoms in colorful packages depicting endangered animals. The idea is to start  a debate about how overpopulation crowds out species and hastens climate change — just when the world is welcoming Baby No. 7 Billion.
