Silence that Kills
MetadataShow full item record
All of humankind has remained silent about a serious problem _ the overpopulation of Earth. With the amount of people on Earth exponentially growing, food production for the growing population has become an increasing problem. The only alternatives to population stabilization are to 10 permit the population to grow unchecked until it exceeds the bare subsistence level and natural law controls the population by means of disease, starvation, and death or 2) estimate optimum population size based on Earth s ability to regenerate resources. Unfortunately there is no neat, non-controversial way to stabilize the population without encroaching on an individual s rights.
