'We've got to find a way to make the world work for everyone'
NEW YORK – The man charged with managing the U.S. response to deadly Ebola virus is on the record advocating a reduction in the world’s population as a means of social and economic advancement.
Ron Klain, who began his job Wednesday as coordinator of the Ebola response, was asked in an interview what he thought to be the “top leadership issue challenging our world today.”
“In think the top leadership issue in the world today is how to deal with the continuing growing population in the world and all the resources demand it places on in the world and burgeoning populations in Asia and Africa that lack the resources to have a healthy, happy life,” Klain replied. “And I think we’ve got to find a way to make the world work for everyone.”
He said climate change impacts the overpopulation issue “by making it hard for people to live where they live.”
