Until about five years ago, I had never thought about the population issue. It simply wasnât in my realm of thinking. However, one thing which gives me a little bit of solace is that most of my friends were the same.
In September 2009, my youngest daughter, Jenny, phoned me and said, âdad, they are all talking about human induced climate change, and theyâre all going off to Copenhagen. Why donât they talk about the âelephant in the roomââ. I said, âJenny, whatâs that?â. She said, âpopulation!â.
The instant she said the word, it was almost as if a light was turned on in my head. Within seconds I realised how stupid I had been. Here we were talking about problems which are facing our planet, but people werenât talking about the most obvious problem â too many people. I knew that we had something like 6.7 billion people in the world, and this was predicted to go to over 9 billion by 2050. But Iâd never actually linked that with a great many of the problems we have in our world. Buy Alprazolam 0.5 Mg
