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

Rawhard Dickins's Avatar Jump to comment 17 by Rawhard Dickins

Populations are limited by the environment, and it will be no different for humans.

Even those on the fringes of sustainability will do their best to survive, reproduce and push those fringes ever wider and larger, and for these reasons I believe that much of the work done by the charities is ultimately futile.

Added to this is the desire of many religious groups to succeed by either out-populating others or having such ill-informed family planning as to have the same effect.

Sadly much of the human race is destined to proceed with the sort of suffering that applies to the rest of the animal kingdom, perhaps the only difference is that humans have the added torment of knowing that it is happening.

For those of us in the better parts of the developed world, enjoy it while you can!
