Global Population Growth Will Outpace Wars, Pandemics, Report Says

The Guardian: Global overpopulation would ‘withstand war, disasters, and disease’
“The pace of population growth is so quick that even draconian restrictions of childbirth, pandemics, or a third world war would still leave the world with too many people for the planet to sustain, according to a study. Rather than reducing the number of people, cutting the consumption of natural resources and enhanced recycling would have a better chance of achieving effective sustainability gains in the next 85 years, said the report published in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…” (Tran, 10/28).
