Are they're any solutions to the world's biggest problem?
Severe overpopulation and over consumption. It might seem like a dumb post, but most of the world's problems can be traced back to this. There are just too many people and not enough resources to go around. I just can't think of any real solutions to this. Anybody have anything to comment.
The world's population has gone from 2.2 billion in 1940 to 7 billion today. It will probably be 10+ billion by 2050.When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

I think we need to look to Logan's Run for the answers to our problems.Oddball checklists plus Oddball and Serial #d for sale:

If over population is your biggest concern, I would say go after conservatives and the Pope telling them to shut up about "abstinence only. no contraceptives. make abortion illegal. etc"
That would be a major step. I mean, we have the Pope going to Africa and telling them condoms help spread AIDS. Stop that crap and you might get somewhere.

I honestly don't think overpopulation is a problem (right now) nor is it the cause of most of the world's current problems. The majority of wars that are going on or conflicts have to do more with religion or somebody different than somebody instead of attacking a country for food or water. Will this be an issue in the future? Yes but not now.

As for a solution, I hate to say this, but populations do have a way of rebalancing with the ecosystem. It won't be pretty, but it will ultimately work.

if the majority of people actually cared about others and/or themselves, our issues would be much different. but liberals will always attack the conservatives(had to throw that in their for you wickabee), the has nots will always attack the has, and people will continue to covet and depend.
call it want you want, but how many people having abortions would listen to the Pope to start with?
abortion has been legal for how long now? no matter how much people complain it will always be here and be legal, there is no stopping it.
prevention is a better plan, but why aren't more people figuring out a better way to handle all this? the conservatives may be pro life (well most) but no one has cared about them for a while now. look at gay marriage, immigration, and marijuana laws, the ultra conservatives have been ousted and just make a lot of noise in the background now.Jay Shrewsbury

"if" should be capitalized
"but" should be capitalized
There should be a space between "conservatives" and "(had".
"their" should be "there"
The accepted terms are "haves" and "have nots" but I'll let it slide.
If the ultra-conservatives have been relegated into the background (which they haven't, really) maybe ask why? Is it because liberals are evil and eat their heads? Or is it that ultra conservatives, by definition, are against progress. So while the world progresses naturally as it does and should, they hold onto old, outdated and archaic beliefs about society?
