My personal belief is that you can't have an honest debate on climate or resources if we aren't willing to put this on the table. No one likes the idea of anyone telling them they can't do something...but the only reason we haven't felt this hit home is because we're too busy importing all the rest of the world's resources to produce our baby strollers and diapers. If we were limited to what we could produce here in this nation, this would be a different situation.

So what do you think? Is overpopulation a major problem we're overlooking? Join the conversation.
