 Since behavior is a core part of the problem, this question'​s answer will show how much the responder understands the problem at hand.

Other things one could relate to are education to decrease birth-rate, increase standard of living to make people care at all (depends where they are in Maslow'​s pyramid of needs). Consumerism,​ consumption-based society and capitalist system could also be worth mentioning and discussing.
