Why aren't we discussing the real problem here?

There's just too many of us.

Deforestation and pollution in the form of trash and large scrap heaps, and toxic waste etc., and seven billion humans using resources that just aren't there, ever-expanding economies and so on...

These are the real problems we're facing. CO2 and a warm planet is not as bad as a planet cooling down. We should be glad it's going towards a warmer climate and not the other way around.

I'm not doubting man-made global warming, only that there are so many other things we should discuss before we start worrying about CO2. (And if we lower the number of humans, we also lower the demands for resources, energy and pollution...)
