    BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | Earth population 'exceeds limits'

    There are already too many people living on Planet Earth, according to one of most influential science advisors in the US government.

    Nina Fedoroff told the BBC One Planet programme that humans had exceeded the Earth's "limits of sustainability".

    Dr Fedoroff has been the science and technology advisor to the US secretary of state since 2007, initially working with Condoleezza Rice.

    Under the new Obama administration, she now advises Hillary Clinton.

    "We need to continue to decrease the growth rate of the global population; the planet can't support many more people," Dr Fedoroff said, stressing the need for humans to become much better at managing "wild lands", and in particular water supplies.

    Pressed on whether she thought the world population was simply too high, Dr Fedoroff replied: "There are probably already too many people on the planet."

    I think anyone who thinks there are too many people living on the earth should put their money where there mouth is and off themselves.

    The attitude of these people are, as PJ O'Rourke put it, "Just enough of me, waaaaaay too much of you."

    Naw, just let all you Conservatives follow ol' Limp Rushbaugh's example and give all of you all the drugs you desire.

    Ah, so you're a liberal. I'm am, too! Except that I'm a classical liberal. If you don't know what that is, just look at the Founders of the United States. We've got too many people who depend on big government. I say cut 'em lose.

    Your post is not even remotely informative or entertaining.

    Please step it up or step down...
