because we as rich american slobs are soposed to feal guilty and many feed off of this soposed guilt to make money for themselves, and think there being good poeple in doing so. ever see one of those save the children in africa comercials? then you should know what i mean.
i disagree with the over population statments. technology suports over population. bigger building can cram more people in less space. better farming methods and/or genetic manipulated foods can feed more people with less space. medicine is slowly curing the world of disease. the quality of life for people and the planet will decrease though. people will continue to have to live in less and less space, with more polution. more species will die, more trees will die. more space will be taken up, the earth might get warmer, the coasts might get smaller. but population around the earth will still rise
