Population Growth trends in an easy to assimilate form. Watch the huge growths in Africa, Asia. Birth control is needed, we can't keep going like that and keep the Planet and people in good shape.

@design_RG Population growth is exponentially increasing and Resources are exponentially decreasing. Saw a study by WHO where it was said that with current amount of Natural resources available, we will not be able to sustain humanity for 100 years.

@shibaprasad

Sounds like that is just a fancy way of saying the population will stop growing naturally once we dont have enough resources to sustain it :)

@design_RG

@shibaprasad

Yea the point where, on average, every family can afford just enough food to feed themselves and 2 kids :)

@design_RG

@freemo @shibaprasad Natural systems have population control, but a die off or wide spread destruction, conflicts for resources, water, fuels is not a good way to handle this problem.

Education and promoting birth control would work better, imo.

@design_RG

Oh i agree but I was hoping you would realize .

I find it interesting as a test of people when I talk about population being self-regulating, when I do people go to one of two camps:

1)
liberals (solve everything through government regulation) ->

The focus tends to be largely what yours are, that is talking about the wars and the lack of education. In general the focus here is on what governments didnt do to fix the problem:

conservatives (self-regulation) ->

Here the focus is on the need of the parent to want to have kids and how that may and how those who have too many kids for what they can feed are ultimately to blame for having too many kids.

@shibaprasad

@freemo @shibaprasad Self-regulation by an educated population is the best approach, on my Liberal, Socialist view.

"Let them crash and burn, that'll teach them" right wing extremism is neither humane not a solution.

@freemo @shibaprasad Just found at another instance.

Real scarcity will be deadly. Climate Wars is a book by Gwynn Dwyer that covers possible future resource conflicts.
