No doubt this will affect climate, but someone much bigger is still in control....

Human overpopulation is the root cause of every problem on the planet. We are breeding ourselves right out of a home and we're taking millions of other lives with us and it needs to be managed.

I couldn't have said it better myself, Pam. Over-breeding, living longer, over consumption...the list goes on and on

Thanks...I get weary, reading about how certain populations are growing by leaps and bounds, while other, MORE CONSCIOUS societies are finally starting to seriously discuss population growth.

Even w / over population, I think thats a smaller piece of the problem, We need to get on board with more Earth friendly alternatives for energy uses, food wastes, & my pet peeve Electricity waste, water waste plays a role as well. Its hard to try to do my part with blatant waste all around me.

There are many parts to this problem....fewer people would surely help with wastes of all kinds. I'm convinced the next war will be fought over water.

This is not a new issue any more then the dangers of excessive over use of fossil fuels, pumping far too much dangerous toxins into our air and water is a new issue. People don't want to be bothered till it reaches a catastrophe level. Our planet can not cope with the excessive, burdensome and ever growing populations, nor can we continue to make excuses for why we must continue to use fossil fuels. We have the technology, we have the labor force, we lack the will.

Should America step forward and lead by converting to solar, and ocean winds for power, others will follow, currently other countries are already doing this, the United States once again is sadly behind.

Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way.

Kit has a gift for stating what needs to be said. Unfortunately, these facts are clearly NOT "obvious" to much of the world or we'd all be busily doing what needs to be done to FIX them!

I know, Rasputin, I know! Tomorrow I promise that I'll focus more on overpopulation since it has a huge impact on both sustainability, food supply AND (yes, you know i'm going to say it) CLIMATE CHANGE!!! :)
