Making Smart Decisions
Overall population has nothing to do with environmental issues. With even rudimentary thought and care, there is no reason why the Earth cannot support 10 billion people. By the exact same token, just 1 billion people doing extremely stupid and damaging things can destroy the Earth. cf. Desertification. cf. Fishing out all of the world's oceans. cf. destroying all of the world's rainforests. These are not the acts of 10 billion starving people. They are the acts of a few thousand greedy fucking capitalists and despots who want to rape the world, cash the check, and die with a BMW and a dick in their mouth.
