    Optimizing, or maximizing?

    Mother nature had her own ways to have the optimum number of humans on earth. Human intervention aimed at maximizing the number has created numerous problems. Where will this end?

    things will balance out in the end. people think they have more power than they do, and eventually it will catch up. look at the natural disasters going on around the world which we have no power to overcome.

    the earth is hurting due to our selfish and egocentric belief that we can do whatever we want and never have consequences.

    People are doomed. they can blame it on others because they are to selfish to take responsiblity, but the fact is, we are all to blame.

    I am from India,and i shouldn't be saying like that,but the truth is mainly India is responsible for the population growth.Though India is second in population but its increasing rapidly in every second.And due to the large number of illiterate people ,its not going to be solved.And the behaviour of literated people are also hurting the mother nature a lot.Due to large extent of infrastructure and buildings ,all the trees and greenary are vanishing.All in all your question's answer is,sadly,this is only going to end only the world.

    Humanities mindset is not focused on helping mother nature. Yes, there are groups that are more environmentally aware, but the majority of people still have a long way to go to achieve that kind of thinking.

    I don't believe that the number of humans alive today is what is hurting the earth; I believe it is our destruction of nature, such as trees, land and water.

    Our buildings are taking up too much room, and too many trees are suffering because of it.

    There is always a balance between Yin and Yang. If humans try to change the outcome, the result will change with disasters to balance out. So no matter what we do, it will eventually balance itself.

    Your logic is wrong.
    The fact that the earth still can hold more humans means that it hasn't reached its maximum yet (carrying capacity) other-wise the number of deaths would be equal to the number born.
    It also depends on what you mean "problems". Humans has certainly changed the Earth, but the Earth has made dramatic changes many times. We are only a part of its change - not "problems".

    Though we are human beings still we are hardly caring. It is not only about other people but also about the Mother nature. We always aim for more and more while nature always prefers to strike a balance.
    We humans should not forget that we are merely God's creation and Mother nature is itself a God. Thus, we must respect the call of the nature and act accordingly then only life will be to an extent hassle free or else it will invite natural destruction which is beyond our control.
    Man made problems are galore where again ordinary citizens are helpless but caring for nature is in our hand then let us give it a go and Mother nature will reward us
