the earths human population will be 1792 billion in 504 years. The funny thing about it is no politician will talk about reducing human population because it means economic growth goes down.

Buddhist leaders should be talking about reducing the human population to around 2 billion to save the earth.

Every solution is a double edged sword.





' Every solution is a double edged sword.'

Now China has a big problem, not enough Females so rather than curbing it's population it's creating a unnatural society. The law has now been changed as they recognize the need of a balanced society.
