What can we do about it?

Perhaps i expressed myself badly: certainly I did not intend to imply
that overpopulation in and of itself is not the problem. Forgive the
crudity, but this earth has too many f...ing people (which results from
too many people f...ing without "protection," of course)--that's a given.
What I was trying to get at was the need to reduce overconsumption in
this country so that we have more credibility when we decry excessive
baby-making in other countries (for exactly the reasons that have been
pointed out inthis thread). When asked "what can we do about it?",I think
the answer is to get ourselves under control before trying to control
someone else.
