What is the world's population?
« Reply #25 on: 04/11/2011 10:03:46 »
What is the solution? Is there a solution? Are we strong enough to face the solution?

Yes there's a solution: Planet earth is a self-correcting ecosystem like any other. When this ecosystem can't handle more people, nature will counteract on that (or the natural consequences of human actions will).
Whether or not we are strong enough is a moot question. We will have to undergo whatever 'the planet as ecosystem' has in store for us.

I'm just wondering if we'll see the 6th Mass Extinction Event occurring during our lifetime or not ^^
