Overpopulation Is Not the Problem
Overpopulation and the Vicious Circle Principle
By Steven B. Kurtz
Council on Global Issues
Overwhelming evidence has engendered a consensus among global scientists that the human population level and trend are unsustainable. Although we are part of nature, we may have some choice in the ongoing process of which our numbers are but one variable. Individual, social, and institutional factors are examined, and policy options are considered. Evidence is given debunking the claim that the rich attempt to coerce poor nations to reduce fertility. Carrying capacity and optimum population concepts are discussed, particularly as to equilibrium potential. Prospects for pro-active success are entertained. … >>Ad hoc -- Steve Kurtz reply of July 10, 2013 to June 1, 2013 World Science post:
The omission of massive overpopulation as a driver of both environmental devastation and poverty is glaring. The UN has addressed this in many conferences and articles for decades. It is no longer politically incorrect to discuss the population variable unless you are fostering competitive breeding which is overtly stated by several orthodox religious sects amongst all three major monotheistic and patriarchal religions.
Ample documentation for the above is in my 10 page paper given to The World Congress of the Systems Sciences/ISSS conference in Toronto (2000) See: http://www.peakoilandhumanity.com/kurtz_folder/feedback_disequilibrium.htm.
... Of particular interest in this respect is the manner in which the very question of overpopulation has been very effectively designed off the international debating table in relation to feasible action. Even though the Earth's population doubled from three billion to six billion people between 1960 and 1999, the last United Nations International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), at which such matters could be directly addressed, was in Cairo in 1994. This was however followed by a modest " Cairo +5" review conference in 1999 (The Hague Forum) – also known as ICPD+5. The "ICPD+10" anniversary confirms the trend towards periodic production of review documents – avoiding any conference. ... >>

... It is this association with the hideous Nazi regime that gave eugenics - a term coined by a relative of Charles Darwin, Sir Francis Galton, in 1883 - its bad name. Richard Lynn, of the University of Ulster of North Ireland, thinks that this recoil resulted in "Dysgenics - the genetic deterioration of modern (human) population", as the title of his controversial tome puts it.

...Overpopulation (OP) is only one of global problems facing the civilization. It has unique character among them. Really, may problem of, say, the poverty be taken off when remained not resolved? No, nowise. The same answer for similar questions concerning global problems of human vitally important wants in general, of not renewable resources, human over-aggressiveness, pollution, wastes’ heaping up, migration, cultural and moral degradations, deforesting, emaciated soils, etc. But it is the overpopulation problem that may be “SELF-RESOLVED” being NOT RESOLVED by humans – with “help” of mighty, of global scale DEPOPULATION. ...>>
