From 1930 the world population has risen from 2 to over 7.6 billion today. We are destroying the world`s natural habitats at an astounding rate, mostly for food production. Our roads, hospitals, schools, and houses are increasingly cramped.
Resource usage per person increases every decade, while our total numbers continue to rush upwards. ALL energy efficiency gains go towards accommodating ever-increasing numbers of people.
WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR SPREADING THE WORD: NO MORE THAN 2 CHILDREN PER FAMILY.

There`s no point in bleating about the future of pandas, polar bears and tigers when we`re not addressing the one single factor that`s putting more pressure on the ecosystem than any other, namely the ever- increasing size of the worlds population - Chris Packham Please see - https://www.populationmatters.org/

Definitely a problem. Stop reproducing people! Also stop all the mindless births... you know the drug head with 7 children that a portion of are in someone else's care. Something needs to be done.
