The Cost of Child Marriage Development experts have always measured the human costs of early marriage, but new data are shedding light on the practice's economic impact.
However, in most developing countries, change is not occurring fast enough and funding for this cause is inadequate. Worldwide, approximately one in five girls under 18 are married or in a union and many are already mothers.

China is now the world's largest emitter at 10 billion tons of CO2 annually. Assuming half the world is still agrarian and half is industrialized, the author hypothesized that emissions will fall to that level only if the world's population decreases to 2.
For this reason, professional environmentalists advocate for both family planning and per capita carbon reducing.
The need to reduce population is often denied because many think it interferes with economic growth. In fact regions often pursue growth to stimulate their economies.
