Except... The planet could easily hold two times the present population and support it easily. Define "irresponsible breeding." And do you have a
solution for this "irresponsible breeding?"
It most certainly cannot hold twice the population. Just for fun, lets see your evidence substantiating that claim.
Water is already an issue all over the planet. So is energy. There are already infrastructure problems all over, and you believe twice the amount of
people is something that is supportable? Where would the funding come from?
Irresponsible breeding: Having children you cannot afford to adequately care for. As for the solution to that problem, it would have to be a multi
faceted approach. Eliminating all foreign aid would result in shorter lifespans for adults, who would in turn have less time to breed. The children
that were born wouldn't live very long without adequate food, water, and medical care.
The list of viable options would be quite lengthy.
