And I'm beginning to agree with Agent Smith...



And I'm happy that we don't have or want kids.

Human sprawl CAN be cured....

I'm thinking more-and-more its a good damn idea. It would shure-as-sheet solve immigrations, feminizm, political-correctness, racism, banksters, lawuers, economyand the LBGT agenda....

Actually, it would pretty much solve everything.

I somewhat agree. We (humans) seem to need a reset every now and then.

After my lifetime, if that's not too much to ask (another reason not to have kids).

Why after your lifetime? What makes your the current generation your age so special? Wait, Miley Cyrus, right? If humanity has to pay the ultimate price for existing, now is as good a time as any.

I remember a guy who was going on a rant like this. He barricaded himself at the Discovery Channel headquarters and took hostages and was then shot by snipers.


We can continue to grow, so long as we continue to preserve natural resources. We can move UP, and rehabilitate areas that are already (or were once) populated like Detroit and have become abandoned.

I'm not sure what the point of these videos are. To show population growth in some of the biggest cities in the world? That seems like something anyone should be able to understand. Populations grow. I think these maps become more detailed as time goes on because, i'm sure survey and census techniques are about 1000% more accurate and precise in 2000 than they were in 1845.

Nothing special. I just don't want to experience the consequences. Obvious, right?

Nature will fix it eventually and we all know it. Whether by lack of food or plague or whatever. The earths population will not grow exponentially forever. It's just a matter of when.

I'm curious what the concern here is. Are you worried about the kids of the future living in a society that's crowded?

The Earth is billions of years old... who cares what happens in 4,000 of it.

It is estimated that the world population will level out between 10 and 15 billion. It is likely to be closer to 10 than 15.

If you want to reduce the earth population, then spread prosperity. Prosperous countries have low birth rates.

The one common way to prosperity is with electricity. That is why the developing countries want power plants so badly. That is why no matter how much the West tries, we will never talk the developing countries out of using coal and oil for power.

I absolutely agree - the planet won't care and life will go on. It just won't turn out well for us as a species IMO.

I'm not sure what it will be like when it levels out. IF it levels out. China is one of the developing countries that although it is dependent on coal at the present time it is also a world leader in the advancement of solar and wind energy.

Exactly, and the same thing applies to our economy. Nothing can grow at 2% forever. Our economy is a ponzi scheme for the wealthy and when it fails it will be catastrophic. When it happens it will hit everybody. Not just the poor struggling underclass. Not gonna be pretty. I'll be under the dirt by that time.

Populations (animals/people) tend to expand until they reach a natural limit. We are on an upswing, but this will likely settle out over the next 25-30 years.

If we can continue to advance to the level that we have over the next 100-200 years, I wouldn't have any reason to think we wouldn't exist in some form at least on some planet somewhere. No idea what civilization will be like 1,000 or even 1,000,000 years from now. If we can make it off this planet, then we should be able to survive long term at least somewhere.

That's probably true as the universe is too big for us to destroy before the end of time (whenever/whatever that may be).

Or maybe it gives us at least some time to evolve some more.

Technology can be a double edged sword. At this point it's not clear to me whether it will be our salvation or or demise. I pray that we will use it intelligently and not greedily. So far it looks like it could go either way. I see no sense in thinking that we can screw up this planet and then move to another. Our future is here. If we have a future.

You don't enjoy life ? Do you wish you were not born ?
I don't get your reasoning. Do you think you are saving any offspring from a hellish existence ?
I argue you are denying them opportunity, and the joy of success and failure.
