First off I would like to ask where you live. This does have to do with the debate, so no, I am not stalking you. By controlling the population, am I correct in thinking that we would have to kill off millions of people? Is this like a Hitler kind of thing, like survival of the fittest and Only the perfect will survive? If someone lived in, say, New York City, I can tell how they may think that our population is overrun but they may have only lived in a massive city teaming with people and have never seen a field or some vast expanse of land like that and therefore only know what CROWDED is. I live in San Antonio Texas, US and while that is considered the third biggest city in the state, it is not by any means overpopulated. I believe that there is room for all of us. There are somewhere around 4,075 kilometers in earths circumference and the total surface area of Earth is about 197 million square miles (509 million square km). So while you may think that there is not enough room, there is actually plenty of room for everybody and more.

But that's thing, it's inevitable that the environment will be destroyed because of human nature, not due to population increase.

But what about the environment being destroyed with a higher population? We all can admit this will happen! Please resolve this in order to be successful con side.
