← U.K.'s Royal Society Finds No 'Silver Bullet' for Population Issues

Given the absolute requirement to reduce the global population, it is perhaps an unfortunate yet inexorable consequence of Richard's most influential scientific discovery - the fact that we are [in the most general sense] survival vehicles for our genes - probably does not lend itself to population reduction. The fundamental, arguably single most important factor for why we have been able to survive and evolve for as long as we so far have, could ultimatley be the largest single contibutor to our demise.

But then what is life without irony....
