    Most of the energy needs to be focused on areas that have a population rate of 4-7 children per family. Middle east, Africa and central Asia.

    We need to do this by giving these people books and education. Making them not want to have 10 children apiece. Right? It really doesn't make sense to focus on area's that are having 1-2 children a piece as you're just destroying the educated area's anyways.

    Voluntary control of human fertility has worked in areas where high education is the norm rather than the exception.

    There are not "too many people," and in about 50 years the global population will begin to decline anyway.

    Yes, there are too many people. The chief cause of the intensive pollution of our environment is the sheer number of people. A few more weather related disasters in the bread baskets of the world, and there are going to be hundreds of millions of people starving. In a world of 7 billion people with some unstable nations possessing nukes, that is most definately not a good thing.

    Who is we? I would donate to a charity that helps teach contraception, and provides free sterilization to the impoverish in foreign nations, but I would reject any notion that world population issues are a United States issue.

    Who said the United states has to do a thing? I just said the way I believe it should be done if it was to be done.
