    Imagine if the world's population was as low as it was when Jesus was born, and stayed there. Everyone could be using HFCs all they wanted because there would be so few people that it wouldn't matter.

    It's the staggering population that's the problem. Worrying about all of these greenhouse gases and whatnot are just avoiding the real issue.

    How would you suggest dealing with the real issue?

    On the one hand evolution made us want to breed, it's a basic species survival characteristic. On the other hand since we're at the top of the food chain we don't have any natural predators to keep us in check. Thus my feeling is that the overpopulation problem is hopeless.
