Happy World Population Day!

As promised, here are the results of voting for the best statement of 25 words or less as to “Why is reducing population growth essential to achieving sustainability?” After tallying all of the votes, the winner is:

“It’s not how many people the earth can contain; it’s how many people the earth can sustain. “

The 2nd highest rated sound bite was:

“Whatever your cause, it’s a lost cause if we don’t stop population growth.”

And the third message with the highest votes was:

“There is no sustainability without population stabilization.”
