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.
