Can you think of any problem
in any area of human endeavor
on any scale, from microscopic to global,
whose long-term solution is in any demonstrable way
aided, assisted, or advanced
by further increases in population,
locally, nationally, or globally ?
- Prof. Al Bartlett
Short of nuclear war itself, population growth is the gravest issue the world
faces. If we do not act, the problem will be solved by famine, riots,
insurrection and war.
- Robert McNamara, Former World Bank President
