Overpopulation?
What to do about it?
Very interesting.


China had an interesting solution. But one most people find unacceptable. So our population will continue to grow, and there will continue to be more starving people than ever before (because we simply can't feed them all), and deforestation will continue (and top-soil erosion) in the vain effort to try to to feed them.

This will work itself out. I guarantee it. It will be incredibly (phenomenally) ugly, but it will self-correct.

You think wars over hydrocarbon sludge are bad? Wait till potable water becomes scarce...
