Infinite growth not possible on a finite planet. We need to follow the advice in the book " Prosperity without growth". Sadly our debt based money system only works if people and planet are consumed in the worship of money. A good blog.

Talk of population management is always controversial and the impact of too many people is something few willing to acknowledge, often for religious what they see as ethical reasons. Common sense must tell us that the more people there are using space and resources the less room there will be for wildlife and nature. While living smarter and more sustainable can help lessen those impacts they will ultimately be felt as the population continues to rise. Recent research has indicated that far from levelling off about 2050 the world's population will continue to rise well into the twenty-second century. This does need to be discussed and addressed in a holistic way.

Legalise euthanasia, ban second home owning and limit number of flights per year. That's my thoughts

No we don't need growth in the number of young people to support the growing older generation. By and large these people are financially prepared for this and with continuous improvements in technology there is no need for more working people. We just need to stop continuous expansion of consumerism and consumption of things we don't need. The vast majority of people are employed in producing things we don't really need.

An excellent blog, which approaches the issue of human population growth in a thoughtful and constructive way. Suspicions of eugenism has unfortunately paralysed discussion about population growth as a problem, but the colleague who argues that it is "how we live rather than how many of us there are" incorrectly assumes that there is a dichotomy between the two factors. It might be helpful to reconsider the I = PAT formula, proposed as long ago as the 1970s, which links human impact on the environment to the three factors of population, affluence and technology. Surely the best way to avoid discussing population growth in a way which risks being tainted by xenophobia is to focus first on the UK situation and in particular to question our assumption that having children, and especially an unrestricted number of children, is an inalienable individual right.
