the population growth graph and the emission graph show a very high degree of correlation. Being "rich" doesn't seem to have much to do with it, however you define that. Sure we can do better with what we have, but "what's really warming the world" simply cannot ignore population growth.

And no, I don't put any faith in "poverty elimination" as having much to do with emissions, or necessarily in population control. That is a bit far fetched, and is akin to "wealth elimination" or equality of outcome vs equality of opportunity, another unsustainable pipe dream.
