The truth of the matter is, the Earth is dying because of all of the people in it. If we do not do something sooner rather than later, we are going to be in a lot of trouble. Watching how high our population is would be a good first step.
The world is becoming overpopulated. To save ourselves and our families we need to restrict the amount of kids you can have, because too many of people are collecting money and taxes on their kids when they don't need it. This would also help with retirement and welfare because we wouldn't be paying out so much money to pay for all these people. (baby boom is a good example.)
Have you not seen the destruction of the planet on the news and for yourself? Every day animals are going extinct because of humans destroying their homes and killing them for selfish reasons like money and their pelts to wear. Pollution is causing the arctic to melt and destroying more of their homes and disrupting the food chain, the very backbone of life for the animals. We are ruining the land, the sky and once more people are born this process of destruction speeds up.
I not only think population should be controlled, it should be enforced by law. Humans may say animals are overpopulating, but we're the only species that's overpopulated.
More people could survive on Earth - badly. But not for far into the future.
Ecological recovery is urgently needed for long-term sustainability - for all species.Ultimately, we depend on many, if not all, of the others.
Real sustainability will require a change of attitudes towards all aspects of life and all forms of life. We need a global community of scientists that are able to think freely without bureaucratic and financial constraints. We need their technologies, but more so, we need their analyses of conditions to inform a new form of leadership with trust based on truth.
Societies would then aim for the necessary conditions for sustainability, including an end to poverty, and for equality based on new attitudes to "rights" Property rights and the concept of "employment" would be anathema in a sustainable world.
A declining population - just enough to suppress any need for "growth" - would leave room for hope, optimism and the attitudes these would inspire.
Human population has increased at an almost exponential rate. With this growth comes an increase in demand for land, food, water, energy, and other resources. As human numbers grow species and their habitats diminish. The bulk of evidence suggests that human population growth is an important underlying cause of biodiversity loss. According to the most recent projections, by the end of the 21st century human population could reach as high as 16 billion or as low as 5.5 billion.
...Not quantity but quality is necessary for this planet to survive! Don't you see it?
The world is overcrowded already and full of hungry innocent kids born in ultimate misery.
The planet is not an endless space full of goods for another 10 billion of hungry throats.
Very soon the human life will become nothing else than terrible existence in hunger and misery.
The finite nature of acceptable air, water, soil and material resources has been exceeded with the concomitant collapse of viable ecosystems throughout the world. Limiting conditions to population growth include potable water, agricultural water, agricultural soil, marine fish habitats and populations, air temperature, severe drought or flooding, fertilizer components, etc. Populations have been controlled by three main factors in the past. These are famine, war and disease. The same factors will again come into effect as climatic conditions worsen. The only solution is to reverse the consumption of planetary resources needed for human existence. This can be done by limiting population growth voluntarily or by allowing nature to take its course.
Daily, there are a greater amount of people born into poverty than comfort, human nature strives and claims to be about equality however we seem incapable of ever being able to achieve it. We should stop the rate of births for a few years and allow those already born to achieve a higher potential. But we may as well try to stop the Suns rise.
There is no longer any use for high populations as we move into a post industrial society. It's childish to presume that all people are born with the right to reproduce. These are ideas from a more primitive, selfish society of greed and assumed self importance. It's time for people to grow up. We're owed nothing, we owe everything to this blue planet.
The current population of the planet is around 7.2 billion. By 2050, the U.N. Department of Social and Economic affairs already predicts that there will be an estimate of about 9.6 billlion people on th planet. Most of the population will most likely occur in countries like China and India. As the population now sours, food and nessities will be a must needed factor to suport the population of the people on earth, resulting to deforestation of the planet.
G-d says in the bible that there should be more humans that we count, So as long as there's a count on humans, There's room for more. Once there is no count, Who cares how many there are?

If you believe that the world is overpopulated, Then YOU can go & solve it right there.
Not everyone wants to have children, So the ones that do can have as many kids as they want, Whether it be one or two, Or as many as 10 or 12. In this way, Society balances itself out. This is why I think we don't need human population growth.
Think of it as this what if it was passed before you were born and you weren't here right now. Why would you want to have someone tell you what to do with your own children, And your also killing innocent people with world population control how else would you get rid of people
People feel like it is their decision to decide whether or not certain people can have a certain amount of children! This is very selfish indeed, I thought this was a free country. Free speech, Free thoughts, But you are seriously thinking about limiting one of our most important freedoms. Our decision and right to have as many children if any that we want.

The U. S is a free country were all people white or black, Boy or girl have free rights other countries aren't like that like China, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, And North Korea, So if some people who are black, Or are girls are kicked out of the country, Than the new country probably won't give them any free rights like us.
We can't do mass killings or it should be done totally without any cheating. But more realible would be if we used population in different economic groups and make our economy improve from it. It would rather be fair and peole thus would also be free from the evils of unemployment.
I know that there is a problem with the population and we have to fix it, But we can not force people to limit population. The problem is that over population is happening but its not like we are crowded but we don't have enough resources for every one, I think that we should regulate our the population on the amount of resources we have around us.
The reason why we should not limit the human population is because I wouldn't like it when someone tells me how many kids i can or can't have. I also wouldn't like it if someone told me I had to abort my kid. This is why I disagree with this.
According to author, Hannah Gais, Better education has lead to empowering citizens and limiting birth rates. I disagree because I am an educated woman with a Master's degree and I choose to have 4 kids. My idea of empowering people is allowing the to choose how they want to live their lives.
I don't think overpopulation is an issue, Because either way there are people dying, And being born, So you be the judge of what I'm stating. It's like the food chain, Its a balance of nature. So honestly even if overpopulation is risk, I honestly don't think that killing and telling people to get an abortion is right. It's their choice and validating their rights and freedoms is wrong in every way possible.
