  •  I have been screaming this. . . (12+ / 0-)

    for thirty years now. it drives me batty, peoples attitudes and total lack of understanding. I watched as my sister in laws had a motherhood battle, each having more and more kids to claim the grand prize. Nothing I could say about overpopulation had any affect and they simply regard me as the family loon. But I will not shut up about it and neither should you. This is THE PROBLEM facing the planet. . . all other problems are subservient to it.

    •  How does anyone even cope w/more than 2? (2+ / 0-)

      I tell ya, social conscience or not, more than 2 kids per household is insane.

    •  I like to point out to people like that (0+ / 0-)
      - their having only one child does more environmental damage than I could accomplish over my lifetime without going out of my way to deliberately overconsume.

      But, such people never listen - so I have stopped even considering my environmental actions with respect to the future of their little chill'uns.
