Pro

As of today, we know that our population is growing and soon will reach 8 billion people. Looking at the carrying capacity of this earth and the limited resources we should consider what's going to happen if we don't slow down this process.

Con

It is the ENFORCEMENT and MOTIVATION that humans receive that drives new discovery, inventing and innovation. By giving the planet a kick up the arse we may actually get out there into space which is solution found by the problem that needed that solution in the first place.

Con

The world is in the current trend of cutting back on resource (land etc) instead of straining the need which is more of a motivation then balancing the need.
