It's not just water, but every natural resource. Food is just as bad. And it's those least able to afford children that have the most.

We've been staying ahead of the curve by utilizing technology, but that solution is not infinite.
I have been mentioning that mother earth is over populated and left it floating...

I don't recall it ever being discussed..

It's been discussed here and at length since the early 1800's. Such thinking, that the earth could not support the human population growth, ignited the field of pseudo science known as "eugenics."

So called experts of the time warned that the earth could not support a population beyond 7 Billion. We passed that number decades ago.

There is no way the human existence will not impact the planet Earth and it's ecosystems. Virtually every plant/creature/organism on the planet has some impact. And often it is major. Stewardship is key. But fearmongering, taxing the affluent nations whilst letting the so-called poor nations get a pass, will not result in good stewardship of our resources.

And there is no government body on earth, that has shown the kind of moral fiber and leadership to justify a demand that other nations follow their self serving advice. Including, the USA.

I agree with what you have posted.. Except I meant P.W. debating it... By picking up where I started with Earth being over populated.
One thing all countries can do is bring back the taking of life for any killing.. death to the killers. .
