All of the problems that this world is facing are a direct cause of too many people. Everything gets worse as the population increases. Education becomes harder to get, crime increases, pollution increases, habitat destruction increases. Until we address this problem this planet is destined for a painful destruction.
As a third child I felt like I had to take the step to not add to an exponentially increasing population. Anyone who has more than to children is exponentially increasing the human population. So I felt like if I was going to have a child in my life then I would adopt a child from the millions of orphans and abandoned children instead of making another child.
Humans must make the steps to stop population growth with incentives for fewer children, free sterilization, and free adoption for those who feel like they have to have children in their lives.
Population growth cannot continue forever. When will we say enough is enough? According to most scientists and other experts who study population we are actually way beyond the true carrying capacity of the planet. When will we make the steps to stop population growth and then reduce and stabilize our population to a carrying capacity which has higher quality life for everything living on this planet?
