You may deny a human cause to global warming, but you cannot deny that the Earth is changing. Simply considering that the polar ice caps are receeding, Greenland's glaciers are melting, any mountain historically showing snow and ice now showing bare ground... Now I am no scientist, but I've seen ice in a glass and it eventually melts, and I learned at a pretty young age as to why. WHY ARE WE STILL DEBATING THE OBVIOUS? Please explain how these events can occur and the Earth is NOY getting warmer. The root cause is, of course, the ever increasing hords of human population. Again, I don't believe you need to be a scientist to understand an increasingly large consuming force versus a finite supply of resources. Stopping wouldn't happen overnight, so we need to get thinking about it, shan't we?

Our planet has almost 7 billion people on it, and the earth can only sustain 5 billion...how can we, as a species survive the long term...we dont have survival of the fittest anymore so retards and morons are pissing in the gene pool... not to mention the inferior genetics that are being allowed to propogate...how can we humanely, rationally, morally and ethically control the escalating population before its too late?

The Earth is reaching its carring capacity. What are the world leaders going to do about the population. China already has that 1 child rule, but is that enough??

Every time that I mention the fact that scientific research has concluded that our human population in the world is excessive and growing by the second, that this fact is greatly contributing to our environmental problems, etc., and that, therefore, we need to control how many children we have (one or none), people get really offended and defensive. Why is that?
