Sure, there's room for helluva more people on the planet, but that's not the issue. The issue is wheter we have the resources to maintain a decent quality of life for everyone. That is kind of hard to speculate on though, since noone is interested on upgrading the quality of life of poor countries.

I just can't believe people openly discuss population reduction, as if it's a good thing. It makes you wonder why they are pushing the global warming agenda so agressivly on us.

When I was born a little over 45 years ago the population on the planet was approximately 3 billion people. In that short time the population has more than doubled to about 6.6 billion.
Obviously, this draconian plan cannot be achieved until the planned combined disasters have achieved the 66% population reduction the Illuminati has planned

Some people will make up any excuses to accept such a policy/ideology, but of course, none of them will be the first ones to volunteer to "save the Earth' in this manner....

There are people on this planet that do FAR worse damage to us than people having kids and relying on the Welfare to pay -

I think that the ony involvement a a government should have is education and and possibly some programs of tax incentives to encourage voluntary reduction in family sizes.

Some of you people just scare me. The ironic thing (or maybe it is just stupid) is that many posters advocating limits are the same people who claim to be against big governments, New World Orders and police states. Why do you think they really want less people? Because less people means easier to control. More people means more voices, more opposition, and more chances for uprising. You think governments really care about the environment? They care about controlling the people.
The several agencies that try to predict future population seem to be moving closer to a consensus that:
* the world population will continue to grow until after the middle of this century
* reaching a peak of some 9 billion (up from today's 6.5 billion) and then
* perhaps declining in the waning years of this century.
