The Elephant in the Room – On Human Overpopulation - by Ocean,

The Elephant in the Room – On Human Overpopulation

It seems so very obvious that human overpopulation is the cause of our world's demise, along with so much misery, that it's sad that we must notice this phrase and actually see it.

And why do you suppose that the elephant in the room - human overpopulation - is studiously ignored by all the news, all the media, and everyone else?

Is it mere courage?

We're here at EcoChildFree standing up for the planet, so join us! Sign up for the EcoEzine and get active in saving our planet!

Imagine the globe from afar. Notice that even if a relatively small population or even half of the world's population was all of us that existed, then the planet could still function on the way we now pollute.
Conversely, if an enormous population of humans, such as actually does exist today, only polluted in the way they did a hundred years ago, notice that the world could not sustain the pollution of so many people, largely due to the constant destruction to our world habitat, the constant felling of trees for wood, for building materials and for food, and as the population would steadily increase if unabated universally, the world would still be in the fix it is in now.
Going eco, in short, won't save the world, without extreme constraints on humans overpopulating as the main aim.

Over six billion now, what do you think the population will be in ten years? 
If not stopped right now, the misery we see, the wars, the pollution and the resulting climactic catastrophes, the human overpopulation will be so huge and the effects so astronomical that it will be too late to save anything or anyone.

Act now!
Go Child-Free yourself and urge others to! 
Adopt rather than bear.
Popularize both!

Be supportive of anyone who is brave enough to be child-free and/or to adopt rather than breeding.

    We can no longer continue to relate to each other, our environment, ecological systems as we have or we will succumb to the effects of human overpopulation.
