o 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.

Yet as an example the U.S. has zero or negative population growth without immigrants....of course certain religions fight tooth and nail to insure the population increase keeps growing. Not sure why.

Developed nations with strong economies/social safety nets seem to have zero or even negative growth....and reductions in growth are seen in undeveloped/semi-developed ones where women are educated on contraception and are allowed to use it.

Not that all is completely hopeful...after all we still are the eaters of oil, coal, and natural gas and eventually those will run out.
