Overpopulation

8 01 2006
The world population is to reach 9 billion by 2050. This affects climate change, pollution, strain on economies, etc.
“An environmental assessment by the conservation charity WWF and the Worldwatch Institute in Washington found that humans were now exploiting about 20 per cent more renewable resources than can be replaced each year.

Professor Guillebaud said this meant it would require the natural resources equivalent to four more Planet Earths to sustain the projected 2050 population of nine billion people.”

4 more planets!!! What are we doing?!? Are we caught up in a situation which we can just watch being unfold before our own eyes?
