Overpopulation
#1
The world's population is now 6.7 billion people. I remember when it was 6 billion, as if it was yesterday. How can this problem be solved, space is not enough for everybody.

A solution can be finding planets where life is possible. Why not? But is rather fantastic than realistic, a lot of money is required for this.
If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

In several years I would introduce a law that would forbid (make people don't want) to have more than 1 child in a family. That should be enough. China does that already. If a second child is born, it doesn't receive subsidies and benefits from the state.

Overpopulation is definitely a big problem of the 21st century. We are limited in resources and many countries, especially China and India, will have to develop agriculture for not allowing people to die!
Just take a look what picture I found of a swimming pool in China, it's awful

oh my God, I can't believe my eyes. What if in few years we'll have the same situation in Europe...

I don't think it will. People in Europe are more rational and understand the problem faster.

Each country should adjust a birth rate control method.

DId you know that there is such term as animal overpopulation. Fortunately animals solve the problem easier by eating the older species.

I think China will soon begin to build underground towns for people if there will be little space for buildings.

I can't make up my mind! Why in China and India the birth rate is so high? Is it because of religion, or they simply don't care how many children they will have? If I lived in their environment, I wouldn't like to have probably even 1 child.

China is poor because it's overpopulated and it is overpopulated because it's poor.

China is mostly an agricultural country. So when a family has a lot of children, it is easier to become richer. That's why every family tends to have at least one boy.

In 60 years, China's population increased from 400 million to 1.3 billion. Between 1049 and 1970 the Government encouraged families to have many children.

This problem will remain untill countries with low population growth are punnished for it. For example, Serbia is punished for not having big population growth in past decades, so Albanians are overpopulating at Kosovo and claimed independance. It will happen again in other counties. Now, there is big populating campaign in Serbia, because other neighbour nations have better population growth.

I think that this kind of nation overpopulating shoud not be rewarded, but punished in some way. Then countries wouldn't promote it.

I would like all countries to have a normal number of people, depending on its sizes. Why should China have so many people, while Canada promotes the policy for immigrants?

Accordingly to the prophecy of Baba Wanga, an oracle, the most populated country in like 30-50 years, (can’t really remember), will be India. And, personally, I won’t be surprised, it has all the ingredients.

Why would India exceed China? Does China have a more strict policy than India in this sense?

To me overpopulation is a problem, but it’s more likely observed from the point of view of the lack of natural resources. Just a thought maybe the raise in the number of the population drove to the present problem of oil prices?

But you've seen what horror is there in Tibet, didn't you? 1000 people disappeared like that. The communism may be raising the economy but not the standard of democracy.
And then there are a lot of earthquakes in the region.

the number of population mostly increases in eastern Asian countries, while the oil is found in Arabian countries which control their birth rate at some level. So I don't think the rise in prices for oil has anything to do with overpopulation

The geographical location of overpopulated countries does not matter, as their population is part of the global, overall oil demand.

I heard the other day that the UK will soon become the most densely populated European country, due to our high birth rate and immigration policies.

I remember in the early 90s being taught in school that Brititsh people would have to limit the number of children they have, and perhaps have a one child per family policy like China.

However, the government has been encouraging people to have large families in recent years: you receive a payment of around £100 for each child you have (to be invested in their future) and there are generous benefits / child allowances available for parents. Some parents choose not to work because they would receive less money :oO

The reason our government does this is because we have an ageing population: as British families became smaller, they were worried that there were not enough young people in work to support all the people who are now retiring.

Essentially, people do not care about long term overpopulation, when it means they may have a lower pension and less benefits in their old age. How can we convince people to look in the long term?

In this case, the UK government have lots of thing to settle with, as it's not an easy task to handle the overpopulation matter...

Becka, is it true that the UK government pays only 100 pounds for each child you have? That's a miserable amount. Normally it should be at least 1,000 p.
I even heard in Russia, the government pays 10,000 dollars for the second child.
