Just another reason why we should stop the human population increasing any further.  We are running out of resources.  I am of course not suggesting a human cull but measures need to be put in to stop this uncontrollable growth.

Then we will help towards food and fuel shortages.  For some reason the idea of gradually decreasing the world population is a forbidden subject.

We have set ourselves up for our economies only to do well if the population keeps growing.  If it does though there will be harsh consequences for future generations.

I think there are 2 reasons for this (and probably more).  The communists thought of it first and people are still building the armies of te pope

So many religions make you feel like your going to burn in hell if you do anything to keep from having kids.  They are part of the problem.

Here another story where scientists are warning of water shortages.


Quote

Currently, an estimated third of the world’s seven million people has limited access to adequate fresh water, according to conference delegates.
“In the short span of one or two generations, the majority of the nine billion people on Earth will be living under the handicap of severe pressure on fresh water,” said the declaration.
The nine billion mark is widely projected to be reached from about 2040.

Scientists warn that Earth faces severe water shortages within a generation

Too many people is the number one cause for this.

I'll be sure to read into this further, nice find Hilander :tu: .  From my own experience, its often not that hard to find water.  Even in the Sahara desert, with a bit of ground work we usually find a productive fresh-water aquifer within 50km of where the water is needed.  As long as you have the money and the means, you will find water.  Just look at West/Central Africa.  20 years ago they had serious water issues.  Now things are progressing well and you find a well in almost every village, and things are only getting better by the year.

Desalination anyone? It's all question of money. Governments will have to subsidy desalination at first to make it more affordable, but once it becomes common free market laws will dominate the prices.

Well we cull animal populations all the time so they don't overpopulate their habitats, I don't see why humans should be any different.

How to go about it is anyone guess however.

Easy Pandemic.

On the water issue maybe having water restrictions everywhere not just drought affected cities. Like I live in a small city and 40 minutes up the road they are on water restrictions. Yes our water sources are different but putting everybody on the same restrictions will help keep what water we have there. We also have a little satellite town next to us. They are on water restrictions and the mayor wants to steal our water. Lol so there is a mini war of words over water happening at the moment. When the drought was really bad back in the day. If you were on stage 6 water restrictions one house was allowed enough water equal to filling a bathtub. maybe restrict people to 40 litres a day per household. Or base it on number of people in the house. Or base it per person altogether and restrict people to 3 litres per day. Maybe 4.

Mind tricks don't work on me, only money.

This statement is absolutely incorrect. The poor and unprivileged are the only ones on track to run out of drinking water. The laughable fatcat wastes that pull the purse strings of this world are not worried at all about the concerns of the rest of this planet. They would sit back and laugh while you died of thirst. I spit on these self-righteous bags of human waste and wait for the day when they are forced to eat the money they so feverishly squandered.
