Could stabilising population growth help us reduce greenhouse gas emissions? And what role do vasectomies play in the future of contraception? These are just some of the topics experts will be discussing in RiAus 's World Vasectomy Day live stream. For those who aren't grossed out by blood, there will also be 17 LIVE vasectomy operations performed. The whole-day live stream starts in an hour and a half!

As long as there are religions that preach the edict "Go forth and multiply", in one form or another, we are not going to begin to address this problem. Unless of course, the gorvernment steps in, as in China, but who wants that to happen? Left to its own devices, nature itself will sort out the problem, and no, it won't be pretty.
 
at one time i might have had that same thought...but not anymore

The Wikepedia Overpopulation page has a nice discussion and summation of the various arguments and positions put forth by population optimists and pessimists.  I for one don't share L8's optimism.  Even if we could never approach planetary capacity, getting close enough seems to be bringing on (or will bring on) issues such as food insecurity and others that make this planet inhospitable for way too many people.

That question has been asked for decades, but the people who are most passionate about answering have only wrong answers. Every population alarmist has been wrong on just about everything: long-term growth rates, the ability of food production to keep up, the dystopian futures they predicted.

Yes, many people thought that. They were wrong. They're still wrong. the sky hasn't fallen and isn't about to. The more we understand about population dynamics the less we worry about it.

Because we can't talk about this elephant in the room seriously for long before someone decides that anyone advocating population control is advocating a Nazi eugenics program. Yes, the simple fact of the matter is that there are too many humans using/demanding too many resources and continued growth is utterly unsustainable.
