More people are recognizing the problem of overpopulation

A fairly well-respected government figure is trying to stimulate discussion on what many people already know: there are too many people on the planet, and since we continue to reproduce at insane rates along with a Chinese and Indian middle-class growing by the hundreds of millions, most of whom desire first-world lifestyles (read: access to clean water, electricity, and trash removal), there aren’t enough resources to come close to supporting everyone.

Only very recently has it been established that having one or two kids makes the most sense; even us Americans are coming around to this idea. Most of us are from large families and still don’t feel the need to start a very large family of our own. If only the rest of the world would follow suit.
