Excess population needs leadership by officials

Mr. Kantrowitz is 100 percent spot on in his call for reducing or, better still, eliminating meat consumption.

But there is another human habit that needs changing. This habit results in the world’s biggest problem by far, and its ripples are called water pollution, land pollution, rainforest/habitat destruction, wildlife slaughter, human starvation and on and on.

The habit, of course, is the one that sees humans continuing to produce still more humans. There are already way too many people on the planet. Adding to Earth’s population and thus straining Earth’s resources more can only increase the dire consequences. Where are the leaders?  Where is the public outcry?
