The pop social guru, Ted Turner, has declared "we're too many people." This is another verse to the hymn of the Overpopulation Church that has long embraced the doctrine that there are simply too many of us humans around. (You will note that the same mantra is not voiced as to the success of other species in expanding their numbers.)
I have a proposal for Mr. Turner and his ilk to consider if reducing the human population is their genuine desire: suicide. Take the gas-pipe, and do your part to "think globally but act locally."
