Stop breeding already!
We have plenty of people, we don't need more! I love TPC's rant below, its a pet one of my own, especially as I sit in stop and mostly stop traffic jams trying to commute my way to work. Anyway, Paul B. Farrell over on MarketWatch wrote a nice article about all this breeding that's been going on. Stop it already!
It kind of reminds me of my college days so many years ago when I took bacteriology. I have this memory of plating out petri dishes of agar with this bug or that and watching the colonies grow into an exponential pile covering the agar, hitting a plateau and then collapsing in death after using up their resources and poisoned by their own waste. Maybe the earth is more open and vibrant than a closed petri dish but I have to believe the end result will be pretty much the same unless we learn to live in a sustainable manner. Having 14 kids ain't it. Sterilize the stinking bitch!
Ok, on reflection I am probably being a little harsh on her. I'm guessing she has a level of stupidity or that she is mentally unbalanced or both. And the clinic that agreed to implant all those embryos ought to have their license pulled and prosecute them for malpractice.
Over population will become a cause for war and violent death with too msny people chasing too few resources. Even if the space to house all these people exists. the resources to house and feed an exploding population doesn't. I fear in the future humanity will be forced into hard and brutal choices to survive unless we put in place the one thing we have that bacteria don't and that is the ability to think.
