the easiest way to reduce population is to educate women. those who getinto higher education are more inclined to have careers and have less kids.
This is what i always say.
Most educated women prefer to have children later in life. This effectively reduces the total reproduction without using the less palatable methods for limiting such.
One other method i think should be considered is not banning chemicals that reduce fertility.

Eeeehh, that's really shaky territory there, Regret. Chemicals that impact fertility usually do lots of other horrible things. Reducing population by giving women, say, ovarian cancer, or causing lethal birth defects en masse sounds a little bit... Mengele-ish.

Not to mention that if he's talking about chemicals that are released into the environment, they won't selectively effect only humans.

I'm thinking regret might have meant contraceptives...English isn't his first language, after all, and that's not one of the easier words to remember.

That would make a lot more sense. And sound less like a plan devised by Lex Luthor.

The OP reminded me of the chorus of this song: I'm gonna feed our children non-organic food, and with the money saved take 'em to the zoo.

That makes much more sense on some levels, but then raises the question, what does he mean "consider not banning" them? Contraceptives are only banned in a tiny handful of areas.

The policy of trying to ban them is quite popular with the Catholic Church, Muslims and the American Religious Right though.  Some take a more incrementalist approach...but especially in the Middle East and Africa (two places where, arguably, access to contraception is most needed) religious groups are most vocal about the unholy nature of it.

Oh, well then...You're in some pretty famous company.

Do you plan to start with smudgy people, or Jews?

All humans at the same time, i don't care.
Though effectively it would have been humans in the most polluted area first.
...
my first thought was: 'Yay! polluting cunts first!' but then i realised most humans outsource their pollution.
Dammit, there is just no way to win at this eugenics thing is there :(

Nevermind, i'll just put my vote behind the education point and nothing else.
Oh, and i'll post this TED talk by Melinda Gates here.

Not if you're gonna get all ethical on me, no.

What's wrong with killing off Chinese people so you and I can have an Iphone?

Nothing!
It's not like they are good people we would be killing right?
What with their 1 child eugenic policy massively reducing the X chromosome variation.
Soon women will also suffer from the many afflictions that are more common among men than women and are caused by a defective X-chromosome!

like color blindness!

Finally we will have gender equality!
