The world population is growing geometrically (multiplication), the food production is decreasing what will the alternatives for governments be? Either to develop a one child natality policy (less likely to happen), either to reduce the population (more likely)!
What are the options? Wars. Not enough, we need a mass murdering scale. What about a virus? The problem is its containment. You can't throw a virus in Los Angeles and limit it within its borders! It is a solution, though. Isn't the Ebola reappearing? How and why?
Natural cataclism? Why not? We can trigger tsunamis and earthquakes. Any other options?
Some argue that there is prob of wealth concentration and distribution - where wealth is more concentrated on the territories with less population rather done overpopulation.
problem of overpopulation or just distribution and population density - people tend to go to cities where there are opportunities which lead to problem of crowding
Since population grows arithmetically, the best solution according to demographers is development. This leads to empowerment of women through inc in education, increase in labor part. of women etc. Long haul, but not culling the population.
Ask the Rockefeller Foundation, they have all the plans! Including a pandemic at the 2012 Olympics!

It is their friendly agenda, what I mean is what will be their realistic strategy? How will they impact societies facing the overpopulation? The U.S was longing for the Lybians', the Iraqis' oils, now it possesses it. It waged wars against them for the wrong reasons. How will they logically eliminate an important part of the population? Thy 3000 Americans in the Twin Towers, what is there for us for their next move?
Everybody should know the world is overpopulated. But everybody given a choice is going to keep on having all the kids they want. Who would control it besides God? Keep hearing about Rockefellers and company but have never seen any proof. Would you if you were them?
It's true that the world is overpopulated. However, if women and men in the nations which are starving (such as parts of Africa) could access real education and birth control, would they choose the life they have? Or would they make different choices? Whose needs are served when dumbing down a nation? What are the advantages of keeping people uneducated? Who makes the profit?
So far, every war, mass murdering (september 11) were not an act of god. Men orchestrated them for their own interests and now those acts are parts of their strategy. I'm just wondering what's next, for us to wage war against Iran, for the overpopulation but that will be credible to our eyes?
War with Iran has nothing to do with overpopulation. They are not that smart. It is about US dollar hegemony.
I was not making a parallel between Iran and the overpopulation. Our government had the Twin Towers blow up that led to the Iraq invasion. They killed 3000 Americans. Concerning Iran or the overpopulation what do they intend to do?
Our government? You are not an American. Why do you presume to speak for us? You don't make sense. Maybe you are with Fox News. They use a lot of bogus foreign corespondents to work their oil agenda.
Work on your English, or get a better translating program. One with some slang.
Whoa! Food production is not down. It is on the increase. The problem is distribution. Thank you.
I think the overpopulated countries should take a lesson from America and work to restrict access to birth control and abortions.
Oh wait, that might lead to more babies not less. Hmm.
Well, if there are more babies then doesn't survival of the fittest apply? In the fight over precious resources the hardiest will beat out the weaker ones.
Oh wait, evolution doesn't exist either.
Well darn. I guess I'm out of ideas.
So concretely, what would the hardiest do to beat the weaker ones?
Millions of obese meat eaters. Tens of millions of starving people.
Stop raising so much meat and so much fodder for meat and then nobody starves.

Why are People Still Starving in IndiaSince I was a kid, we've heard of the hungry children in India and Africa. With all the NGOs and missionaries helping them, why are they still poor and hungry? These are able men and women whose land has been raped and ravaged and colonized by these...

Do you think over population is a burden ?
by kirstenblog 12 years ago
I have heard many good arguments about overpopulation putting a huge burden on resources, from China to India overpopulation has been a issue that needs dealing with. So what is the argument that this is not a problem and it being called one is a hoax? I have heard a few people (mostly on this...
