" 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.

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."
