    Actually, the graph shows a steady population growth with a "dramatic unknown equivalency" value added for effect.

    What do you propose we do to help fix this? Seriously.

    Tom, your conversing with a total defeatist ( don't know if that's the right word...Give-upest?) here. Long time ago I could see all of the world's problems basically could be summed up to population explosion. If we could start a downward trend things could get better. But, not surprisingly it seems to be one of the least tackled problems. (Well, maybe not, but we aint winning). I've always thought that a two kid limit should actually please everyone and the pop. would decrease dramatically. But we all know that will never happen. I always imagine what a great place it would be with 2 billion spread out nicely. Fageddaboudit. So I have no answer and an too old to care. And being a polite Canadian I will say...sorry.

    Absolutely no apology needed! We were just discussing things like civilized people. I enjoy everybody's differing viewpoints and try to learn from them all. Having said that, I am quickly becoming disenfranchised with today's problem solvers myself. I myself think the number of people inhabiting the planet is not nearly as important as the average intelligence of those people. We are currently losing on both fronts.

    I would repeat the same message voiced in various fashions over last 40 years....REDUCE HUMAN POPULATION. Not just population growth rates, but total population numbers. Too many people are chasing too few resources.
    The western christian world by and large has greatly reduced birth rates, many nations are currently below sustainable levels. However other societal groups due to cultural traditions of high birth rates coupled with modern medicine's declining child mortality rates are out-breeding the west several times over. Extending current trends predicts christian caucasians will be bred out of the gene pool like so many neanderthals. So the solution to world's issues will be left in the hands of the inheritors of the earth. Perhaps with reduced contributions from the declining western civilization various pandemics and resource based warfare will trim the human population in the next century. Whether these changes will be reflected in reduced climate change or not might give feedback as to the degree of global warming is due to human influence.

    Whoa! This thread is a barrel of laughs!

    Human population is already showing decline, the population is not decreasing on a whole (except in Japan and some European countries), but the rate of increase is slowing. Most following the data (UN etc.) predict population to start a decline in the second half of the century. Family size is directly related to the level of education, particularly women. I'm an optimist, we are already on track to adjust the population issue. As for who is going to inherit the earth...AI will, none of us meat sacks will get a look-in!

    The traditional method of population reduction is war. It is and always will be the most effective method. The problem is that it mostly removes the wrong people.
    As the song says, "The worst of men will fight and the best of men will die". Then of course there are all the civilian deaths as collateral damage, they usually out number the combat deaths. But at least it does control the numbers.
    The only thing that even comes close to war is the occasional plague like bubonic, and syphilus, and small pox, and ebola and such.

    Watch the show Chasing Ice from the eyes of a photographer. It is interesting. If man is the problem with the earth as some claim, why no volunteers to jump off the cliff to save it. They simply want to get rid of everyone else.

    I will have to look that up. Any chance it can be found on YouTube or Netflix? As far as jumping off a cliff the problem with that is if everybody doesn't jump at the same time they go a little weak in the knees once the first body hits the ground.

    In all seriousness the ones that scream the loudest won't even give up their private jets! Hell when these global summits on "climate change" start being hosted via Skype then maybe I will turn down my air conditioning. Not until.
