    Well, I have a project but I don't want your help I want your view on OVERPOPULATION.
    What do you think about too many people living on one earth.

    well we havent found another earth and we havent had too many people living on the earth yet, so were in the clear. besides we can just live under water in cites with old school diving suits. with drills on our hands. and the ability to cast magic.

    Overpopulation is bad obviously, but we got a long ways to go before "overpopulation."

    Depends on the country, England (the UK actually) will be overpopulated by 2050 if immigration and births aren't cut down.

    Overpopulation is the root cause of a lot of the major problems facing the Earth. It is a significant issue right now.

    What the fuck?
    The UK (Especially England) is WAY to populated already!
    The population of the UK is 60,266,708 (Excluding N. Ireland), And due to the fact 90% of the population lives in England witch has over 50 Million people and look at the size of the frigging country!

    yeah england is really packed
    its only like that in certain parts of the U.S. but there is always space to move to here so we don't really have to worry about overpopulation for a while now unless we all start rapidly having babies

    China is already overpopulated and India is worse if you figure the size of the country in the equation.

    Logistic growth has limits. People aren't going to immigrate there if it's jam-packed.

    I was personally referring to it on a more global scale.

    My idea is simple. Stop finding cures to fatal diseases and let nature balance out the population numbers.

    It'll sort itself out. Most likely machines will rise up and wage war on us thinning our numbers out.

    I think of events in these following games:

    Armored Core Silent Line (AI override, causing a satellite cannon to reek havoc on Earth)

    Armored Core Last Raven (AI controlled suicide weapons, these pretty much destroy the world)

    The moral is that irresponsible use of Artificial Intelligence will destroy mankind.

    True. But I doubt these policies will persist forever. Changes to immigration and birth laws will occur eventually...

    I also doubt the UK will always remain the top spot for immigrants forever

    The heavens.
    It won't for much longer, if the recession returns, which it probably will. However, there are so many emptier countries, like France, that immigrants could go to. Also, TURKEY IS NOT PART OF EUROPE, NOR IS RUSSIA. THEY ARE ASIA. GET OUT OF THE EU! OR AT LEAST LEARN SOME GEOGRAPHY FIRST!

    DISCLAIMER: This is coming from someone who is both Greek and Lebanese, as well as Sweedish and English, a true blue mongrel. Nor am I a racist, but the bounaries are there for a reason. I mean for fuck sake, Russia is 2/3 of the whole asiatic continent!

    The Western World supports overpopulation by donating shitloads of money yearly to the poorer countries.
    I've read somewhere that everyday, 200 000 new people are born in the world (deaths are in calculated) !
