When I looked at the estimated annual death tolls just for the bugs on that list, especially the ones still causing widespread death and destruction,
as opposed to the historical locust plagues, I have to wonder why the heck we still have an alleged overpopulation problem. It seems to me, between
those bugs, viruses, bacteria, fungus, wars, natural disasters, crime, cancer, famine, and other causes of death, our numbers ought to be pretty
manageable given the size of our planet. How is it we are able to breed at a rate that outstrips all these causes of death? I know there are people
out there having lots of kids, but aren't they in countries where these bugs and plagues and disasters killing off many of the unfortunate children?
In my ignorance, something isn't adding up for me.
