The Best Kind of Chastity Belt: Education

The only way we'll be able to put the brakes on our runaway population growth is to give every girl on the planet an education, said former president Bill Clinton at the opening plenary session of the Clinton Global Initiative meeting today.

"If we go in just 43 years from 6 billion to 9 billion, there is nothing that will stop [overpopulation] except putting all the girls in schools and giving girls jobs. Get them into the job market—they will delay marriage and have fewer children," he added.

Sure, blame the women. Boys will be boys.
