...look, my point was that it's more than a simple
overpopulation issue and that if we want to help
the planet, we need to stop ignoring the needs
of other people and find solutions that will
help them help themselves while at the same
time continuing the education campaigns.
you and i view the cause(s) of the environmental
problem as different: i put emphasis on one side,
you put emphasis on the other. in anther way,
i could've said that even if we didn't have an
overpopulation issue, the planet would still be
in dire straits due to lifestyle issues, that's all.
re:the aids reference, i did allude in my post
that i'm predicting diseases other than aids to
wipe off humanity--i'm aware of what aids has
been doing and continues to do (duh!!). the numbers
over the past 20 years is nothing compared to
what is predicted for the next 20 years.
