We can't feed the people on this planet, we can't grow food fast enough. Until you are ready to plow up your flying fields (and golf courses and even cemetaries to produce crops then don't pretend you give a crap about the health of the planet.
I don't golf, I never procreated, I plan to be cremated and I share my flying field with cows and hay balers so I'm good to go.

the population issue is a really nasty one
indeed, I do agree with eSmith regarding the population issue.

But it might go against man's nature as a whole as regards controlling his population. We, as a species, think of ourselves first and everyone else second, and this thinking is generally localised. The nature we evolved with is actually working against us, we were never designed to coped with - or even contemplate - any responsibility for that many people on earth!! Long ago, the average man only cared about where his next bite to eat was going to come from! He would only care about his family and maybe the tribe he belonged to. Asking/forcing people to see what the issue is will only get the point across to certain kinds of people, the rest will continue to do what they do and don't care about what other people think. Besides, in many cultures it is a given and expected that you get to a certain age, settle down and start a family. Asking people to do otherwise might be grossly offensive to them.

The horrible thing about population control is that is seems that the poor countries are the biggest offenders, probably because the perceived idea that more child more helpers on the farm and hence more income.

Somethings' got to give though. We either halt this growth or face the dire consequences, there is only so much water, and only so much land. The only way for the human race to allow itself to expand more would mean to colonize other planets - that's got to happen one day, it's not a question of if, but when, that's the only way out of our population predicament.

Me either OCB, and I don't care what others do really until they start getting high and mighty on a subject like this, or religion or any other unrealistic fantasy.

Pretending global warming is an issue when, even if true, it won't rear it's ugly head until AFTER people start starving to death in masses because of overpopulation is silly. Let's address what matters if we are going to address anything at all.

Worring about global warming while we over populate the planet beyond sustainability is about the same as watering the lawn while the house is burning down.

but the problem it shares with the global warming issue is that no one really knows when the "pain" and irrefutable ill effects of over population kicks in

there are those who think we have a good few decades/centuries before we start seeing it, but I don't think anyone's done a decent enough prediction. If they did everyone in the whole world would see it as an issue as important as global warming.
Maybe we should get more gays married. After all, they don't reproduce.
so I take it that you're volunteering to get "married"? Good for you, Dennis, good for you!

That was a crude joke, I'll admit. I apologize for that.

Seriously, only mankind can determine his own destiny. Let freedom & capitalism come back worldwide and he will do so through the strength of his own hard work. The existence of America has proven that.

No one government or agency can determine how mankind moves forward. Its been tried time and time again and failed each time at very high costs. Almost always for the benefit of just a few.

But if we screw up the ozone and the sun just burns the crops and dries up all the available water then we end up with another Dust Bowl incident that will only exasperate the problem sooner. It's already happening in places and is entirely preventable and it is in all earth inhabitants best interest to prevent it.

You are correct that population control would be an effective measure but ideologically will NEVER happen and has been somewhat a failure for countries that did try it.

well that means eventually we get f*£$£$. Or rather what happens is that we hear of mass hunger in one country and the others don't care anymore because it became a common occurrence or follow the "we damn well told you so line". And most likely these countries are corrupt too, so the aid money goes to fund civil wars and they let most of their "useless" population die. Sometimes it does make you feel ashamed to be human . .

Please..... Put any living thing in your garage and leave the engine in your car running 24/7 and see how long it lasts. Put a whole bunch in there and stay in there with them you are so convinced....
It was perfectly clear in my post that I was talking about Carbon Dioxide and not all the components of engine exhaust.
We are talking about all the recent hoopla over Carbon Dioxide levels leading to worldwide doom and in the world environment, not in such a limited environment as a garage.

Carbon Dioxide levels are what all the climate change/global warming discussion is hinged on and not the other true pollutants.
Obviously I am concerned about the level of true proven harmful pollutants in the environment and support some manner of worldwide control or elimination. Worldwide control for worldwide problems, not just in the West for "feel good" mental state when it is the fast developing parts of world that show and enforce very few concerns about the condition of environment.

Anyway, tell it all to the next big volcano eruption when mother Earth decides to belch out a truly tremendous amount of Carbon Dioxide and other nasties in a short period of time.

I am for taking what action would be necessary to control or diminish any world calamity that is truly proven and not shoot ourselves in the foot over some faked up data and political agenda driven false "the sky is falling in" catastrophe.

Reducing Carbon Dioxide levels would require a tremendous reduction of so many activities worldwide that it would impose such a reduction on quality of life and I believe in the long run human misery and death, that I would hate to see it done as a "knee jerk" reaction to a problem not yet decidedly proven to me.

I do. I just replace that old broken down trailer with a less broken down one. I got rid of those rusted engine blocks, those old beaten up bicycles, those old rusted tire rims in my yard, and replaced the siding of my house with old bear cans.

I also trimmed the 4 foot weeds down to 2 feet. Mostly done by hauling out the good stuff listed above in my old pick em up truck.

Thanks very much.

last time I checked it's perfectly legal to marry the opposite sex. However, in your case, marrying a different species is something rather unusual and odd, and might provoke sympathy or disgust depending on the individual's disposition.

thread disruption/derailment must be your main occupation in life.

do you actually fly much by the way?

perhaps you can go and badger somebody/one else (and I mean that in both ways)

Why would anyone care who or what SOMEONE ELSE marries? Spend your life with any manner of barnyard animal if you like, when did anyone get the power to determine this for others? If you think people wanting to marry animals is weird then just think for a second about the guy obsessing about others doing it and wanting to get involved IN ANY WAY???? He's the guy I worry about.....

There are some good points above, but understand, even if you have proof the earth IS warming up, we have NO PROOF humanity is the cause. We also don't know if this is part of a cycle that not only is normal but may have happened in the past before we were here to record it.
Asking people to do otherwise might be grossly offensive to them.
Now, this is true but stupid, it's the same as religion. who care if they are offended, offended never killed anyone, starving on the other hand.......

yes, well, str8den is seriously f*£$£D in the head....

but the problem, eSmith, is the "if I don't do it someone else will" attitude as regards having offspring.

suppose, for arguments sake, that everyone agrees on the population problem, but when they see others have children they want them too, it's like a silly chain effect. And you know how parents pressurize their grown up kids to produce gran children.

we might be up against strong cultural and biological drives when we are asking for slow down in population growth.
