"Overpopulation: The Real Inconvenient Truth"
Here is an article posted by Brian M:
The Center for Biological Diversity has been running this as part of its campaign on human population - it recognizes that large human population sizes are a common contributing factor to negative impacts on other species.
Here is an article from World Population Day, highlighting the importance of family planning:
Sir Bob Geldof calls for women to have fewer children:
" Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak, the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, has rejected a call by Bob Geldof for people to have fewer children to help ensure there is enough food for future generations.
OMG - this Sheik of the UAR is adulated as "Highness"(!) by his followers, but has no idea, that his knowledge is miles below today's standards. Bob Geldof is totally right - particularly in order to alleviate the immense pressure of mankind, under which the biodiversity of our earth is suffering more and more.
Thanks Dietrich, I agree that Bob Geldof is making a good point. The world needs smaller families, to help save the planet!
Thank you for posting!
Wow, people I can talk to on this subject, without receiving wierd looks, lol. Not only will it benefit the the enviroment and other species, but I think it'll make people more compassionate, &
build a closer family unit!

Thanks so much for the articles. In order for people, animals, and all the forests to live in peace, we must start DECREASING the world's population NOW!
Here is an article by Alexandra Paul on the "Daly News", in which she highlights the issue of human population size and advocates for smaller families:
In the article, she writes that
"I believe that we must stabilize and then lower the world population if humans are to survive on this planet. If advocating a culture that encourages smaller families is offensive, then I must offend. Too much is at stake to be polite."
