    Say what you want but it will soon or later be an issue that needs to be tackled.

    8000 BC - 5 mil
    1000 BC - 200-300 mil
    1900 1 bil
    2010 6.8 bil
    2050 10-11 bil

    It took nearly 2000 years to get to 1 bil, in little over 100 years we increased by nearly 6800%! In just under 40 years, experts predict it could be at 10-11 mil. The world is already a crowded place, keep this up and we are in deep trouble. Where will the food, water, clothes, medicine, energy and space come from.

    Unlike global warming, overpopulation is a legacy we will leave for our children and ESPECIALLY our grandchildren to tackle.

    What is the solution?

    The Earth has its own way of whittling us down before we get too annoying.

    In the past 600,000 years there have been several mass die off of humans.

    I recently drove across the country from SF to Chicago. I can tell you that there is plenty of room for people here in the States.

    And that may even be more apparent when you fly over the states.

    The black plague was really one of th only dips in population BC. After that its only gone one direction.

    I wonder if you seen that what-if like documentary on the history channel that follows the plight of one family after armegadon. Basically a virus wipes out most of the worlds population. After that its a struggle for fresh water, food, shelter and saftety from bandits.

    Is that the type of epidemic you are talking about. Our world is so connected and complex that we could fall and not get up (hahaha)!

    Trust me on this, recorded history is total BS.

    There are places on the Earth that have signs of human habitation at least 250,000 years ago and there are more than a few place where there are massive complexes that are now under 300 feet of water meaning they pre-date the Wisconsin deglaciation 18,000 years ago.

    THE PNAC DOCUMENTS
    Space itself will become a theater of war, as nations gain access to space capabilities and come to rely on them; further, the distinction between military and commercial space systems – combatants and noncombatants – will become blurred. Information systems will become an important focus of attack, particularly for U.S. enemies seeking to short-circuit sophisticated American forces. And advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.
