Pope's Climate Change Encyclical Missing Key Point

Wonderful as it is that the Pope is taking a public stand on global warming and climate change, he's left out one huge point: the primary driving force behind climate change is human overpopulation. And none of the other religions who have taken a stand against environmental degradation and global warming have taken a stand on overpopulation either. Why? Because they do not want their own group's numbers to diminish. They want their own membership and prestige to grow.

By my way of thinking, any plan to decrease global warming and climate change that doesn't include increased use of contraceptives is hypocritical. Therefore, the countries that are doing the most to stabilize our world's climate and ecology are those showing significant population decreases (even if they don't promote the use of contraception).
