    But she would probably run anytime you made eyes at her.

    Those evil carbon energy fuels are the culprit. Without them we would not have this amount of population.

    I feel the number of people isn’t the biggest concern, but how and where is. If there were population limits with cities and counties to spread people out the world would be more balanced.
    But then again I’d like a world where more people were self sufficient with small acreage farming and bartering within communities. A hybrid of old and new. Utilize the land, less time working a job, more time working the land. With modern technology it would be cool to see what we could do.

    I agree that was a possibility but that day is over and when you go to town to barter wear your mask.

    World would be better off with no ore than one billion. We are polluting to much land, sea and air. We are using up to much natural resources.
    Why oh why does the world need the 4+ billions we have?

    If we could just get rid of the stupid people.

    How do you like Bill Gates, big on population control but him & his wife have produced 3 kids. Guess he means it for everyone else.

    Soylent green is in our future . Remember that movie the earths population got so high there was no way to feed everyone .Waste not want not . Seriously though there is zero population control in many countries and at some point in the future the earth won't be able to sustain the impact of trillions of humans if nothing changes . Glad i won't be here to witness it

    If everyone were responsible for their own well-being, we would probably be much less populated.

    Even the most backward of countries have very effective population controls. They're called starvation and disease and they do quite a good job at thinning the herd. The more advanced yet still not overly smart nations have to rely on things like pandemics and for profit healthcare.

    Why is it that those who want to greatly decrease the global population are still here? LOL! Keep fighting disease and it will continue to grow.

    If that were enough though we would not have 7.5 billion people on this planet now with no slowdown in the immediate future up up up it goes but you are right at some point something will someday will bring numbers down a great deal and the world will be unable to stop it .
