Well, according to Ted Turner, we've got too many people on this planet.
He makes a couple statements that aren't ludicrous necessarily because they're wrong, but because we have no clue what's going to happen in the future.
Here's a few of his statements:
--"We'll be eight degrees hotter in 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow."
--"Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals."
--"Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state — like Somalia or Sudan — and living conditions will be intolerable."
--"We're too many people; that's why we have global warming."
Hey then says how everyone in the world must pledge to only have one or two kids.
Six billion people is a big number. But I do not believe that we are overpopulated.
I suppose I'm shooting myself in the foot by saying this, but the fact is that we don't have enough food for six billion people. But I think we can. And call me optimistic, but part of me insists that with each child born is a potential scientist/humanitarian/whatever that will help us come up with better technology and means of getting food to everyone.
What do you think?
