Inevitable Population Growth

When scientists say the world’s population will increase to more than 9 billion, as if they were discussing the inevitability of the tides, I want to pull out my remaining hair. New humans don’s just materialise. Existing humans have to more or less deliberately create them. Creating more humans on an overpopulated planet is insane. We must convince people not to do something so stupid. We are still behaving as if it were the year one when most of your kids died and it was necessary to have a bundle of them just to maintain the population.
