Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If you're truly an environmentalist, you must recognise that overpopulation is the cause of world-wide over-consumption.  Yes, we can squeeze in more people if we all consume less, but what's the point?
Overpopulation is also the fundamental cause of flat and decreasing wages: labour is worth less as its supply increases.  It is natural and nearly inevitable that income disparities grow as populations grow.
Being an environmentalist does not require a belief in a probable solution to mankind's or the world's woes.
