    Is to not have children.  
    That means not only the Chinese, the Indians, the poor, but everyone in the First World since we use so much more in resources.  Yes, there will be considerable wailing and gnashing of teeth from those who don't feel they have enough of a family.
    Until they can't feed those they have.
    The planet can't support eight billion humans, since there's no indication anyone in the Developing World can be dissuaded from the pursuit of an American Dream life.  Or just a life free of strife, hunger, terror.
    The best we can hope for at this point is to blunt the troubles to come some.
    We have to try, and we have to start right now!

    •  It's the opposite! (0+ / 0-)

      If more people had an American Dream life, we would have the resources to build the technology to support a world with 8 billion humans.

      It's when we "split wood not atoms" that we definitely won't be able to support even a fraction of that.

      What we need is economic stimulus to build the more advanced infrastructures of the future.
