Declining birth rates good for planet in long run
Sunday, August 19, 2018
The flip side of a recent column regarding declining birth rates is it would be good for the planet Earth. With climate change and rising oceans a lot of the current land on this planet will be under water and a lot of the remaining land will be unsuitable for cultivation.
Overpopulation is a real problem. Where will all these people live? And will there be enough food to eat and enough clean water to drink? In the short term declining birth rates will be a problem but in the long term it may very will save the planet Earth.
