Lecture 2: Family planning is the most effective climate protection
Gyula I. Simonyi, Hungary
The scientifically most effective way to protect the climate and mitigate the collapse of civilization is to educate people to procreate responsibly and help those hundreds of millions without access to contraception. Almost half of all pregnancies (43% in Europe) are unwanted.
Avoiding these also means avoiding huge CO2 emissions. The Quality Family Planning Standard (QFPS) of BOCS scientifically calculates the climate-protective outcome of work for the human right of contraception (UN declaration, 1968). The resulting Quality Family Planning Credits (QFPC) can be used for carbon offsetting.
